eginning May 1, consumers who trade in their current smartphone to AT&T* will be eligible to receive at least $100 off the purchase of a new smartphone, including the new Samsung Galaxy® S 4, BlackBerry® Z10 or 32 GB HTC One®. These devices are normally $199.99 with a qualifying two-year agreement** but, with this limited time promotion, they will be available for $99.99.

This promotion applies to any smartphone AT&T sells, and gives customers access to the latest devices at a fraction of the cost or, in the case of smartphones priced under $99.99**, for free. To take advantage of this offer, customers are encouraged to visit any AT&T company-owned retail store or participating authorized dealer with their previous smartphone that is no more than three years old and in good, working condition. In stores, upon trading in their old phone, customers will receive the $100 credit on-the-spot and can use it immediately. ***

Some trade-in phones may have a value higher than $100. In this case, customers will receive the credit at the higher value.

Can you all not read? It says $100 MINIMUM. The trade-in calculator value is inconsequential for this promo.

Needless to say, I'll be bringing in a few old smartphones in tomorrow.

What does it matter? If it works, you can turn it in for at least $100 tomorrow. Doesn't matter what the calculator says.

Heads up everyone,

there is a policy in place that states that you must purchase a device or accessory if doing a trade-in. YMMV on if it is enforced though.

well, it matters.

Let me give you an example

Lets say you want to purchase iPhone 5 16 GB. at AT&T, it's full price of $200.

At frys, it's $136, I think.

If they value your smartphone at $100, therefore yes, you pay cheaper at $100 for iPhone 5 at AT&T, but technically your trade in phone is only worth $36 since you can get the same iPhone 5 at frys at $136

If you know the value of your phone, if you resell it at ebay, lets say at $100 as well (the same trade in value), so if you buy at Frys, you only pay iPhone 5 for $36 by buying at Frys instead of $100 by buying at AT&T

That is why it matters as I want to know the trade in value and see if the trade in value is smaller, same, or larger than market value. Then I can make my deduction.

Are you happy now? Smilie

Please don't be lured into a financially oppressive 2-year contract with gimmicks like this.

Studies reveal the following:

Buying your own iPhone and using it on an MVNO (like Straight Talk, Platinum Tel, Lycamobile, etc.) can save you ~$1,200 over the course of that 2 years!

I got a very capable Pantech Burst for under $100, used on PTel and I'm saving a bundle, even over my old SERO plan with Sprint.

The Google Nexus 4 is regarded as one of the best smartphones on the market available today!

The thing is this doesn't apply to family's. We're paying about 45$ a person for our family plan so even if we went prepaid we wouldn't save a fortune.

actually its says "at least $100"

if you're going to tell someone to read, you should check yourself first.
