The retailer is giving a guaranteed minimum $100 trade-in credit for old smartphones as long as you switch to the iPhone 5 on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon with a two-year activation in the store. The phone costs $99 with contract making the deal a pretty good one if you are willing to take a one-year old device.
After the promotion ends, the iPhone 5 will likely be gone for good from stores, replaced by the plastic iPhone 5C and the new flagship iPhone 5S. The 5C also sells for $99, and the 5S takes the $199 slot.
The deal is great for customers with old, working smartphones, especially devices that would not get you $100 elsewhere, even on Craigslist. The deal is good for Best Buy as it helps clear out inventory in the quickest way possible.
