Best Buy is offering a trade-in deal for a very limited time that allows you to trade in your old iPhone 4 or 4S for a new iPhone 5 on a two-year contract.
If you’ve been lugging around an iPhone 4 or 4S just wishing that you could get an iPhone 5, Best Buy might be able to help you out. Tomorrow they are holding a deal where you can trade in your 4 or 4S for $150 credit, which combined with their $50 credit for an iPhone 5 means that you can get the updated smartphone for free.
Of course, the transaction is subject to a review of the condition your device is in. I would imagine it would have to be void of any scratches or scuffs to be able to take full advantage of the deal. If It wasn’t immediately clear, the other downside is that you would have to sign a two-year contract upon receiving the new iPhone 5.
Some outlets are reporting that the slew of iPhone 5 deals that have been popping up recently are because of an imminent announcement for the iPhone 5S, but that type of speculation should be taken with a grain of salt as all signs seem to be pointing to a September release for that device.
Unless Apple is planning to shock the world by releasing an iPhone 5S a couple months earlier than expected, this deal remains a pretty good one.
