Get a guaranteed $200 gift card for trading in any working smart phone toward a Sprint iPhone 6s at Best Buy [bestbuy.com]. Promo page only mentions the 16GB model, but you can use it toward any of them; I got the 64GB 6s. Was discussed in this thread - reps to bacardi. This is a different promotion than the "up to" $200 trade + $200 for new customers - you should be able to combine this with the extra $200 if you are new to Sprint.

I was able to get $200 for a Palm Pre even though it had $0 trade value. I was denied at one Best Buy (they said $0 value phones weren't eligible,) but on my second attempt the rep knew how to process the Pre as a recycle, and it still popped up with the $200 offer. Not sure if prepaid phones would be eligible; the fine print does not specify. I'd think if you could get them to process as recycle they may work.

My line was eligible for contract upgrade price, so I went that route. Rep said it was available with a lease plan as well, but would be reflected as a $7ish/mo discount (which comes out to somewhat less than $200 over 24mo.) He also mentioned a $10/mo lease credit for those on "legacy" discontinued plans... I believe you could start a lease deal even if you aren't eligible for a contract upgrade. But the lease options all just make my head hurt.

Hope this helps someone, seems like a great deal for existing Sprint customers. I've been upgrading every year between SO's line and mine and I don't recall a deal like this so close to the release date; I think last year was $100 for any smartphone (also traded a palm pre) a few weeks after release.

Amazon Fire phone shows $11/$30 trade in value for 32GB/64GB on BB trade in page [bestbuy.com]so I'd think those would qualify for guaranteed $200 no problem.

It might take some work, but you could also get an android with this deal.

it should work as long as you find a rep who knows what he/she is doing along with a sprint rep... i did the same deal but for a note 5 2 months ago.

I am assuming a Best buy Sprint rep? What do you ask then to do? Can you have best buy rep talk to a SERO rep?

It does say "valid" cell phone, which could arguably mean an iPhone.

However, I think the rep did say something about it being good for -any- Sprint phone. Which would make sense given the "exchange" clause. Letting you get an android up front saves them the hassle of having to go though a return/exchange. I didn't want to report that as I think it would be highly YMMV, but yes if you get a rep who knows what they are doing I think it is possible.
