Deal Details

Last Edited by lacedup February 14, 2016 at 08:12 AM
takes a lil wheeling and dealing but works 100%

1) buy this 8gb iPhone 5 for $149 fs no tax https://www.tanga.com/deals/fa579...gn=channel

2) take all the accessories, the charger and EarPods..keep the box it's mailed in (for later)

3) trade the iPhone here for a $200 Apple Store gift card. Yes they are legit and even featured on apples site. https://reuserecycle.abbti.bright...fault.aspx

4) the site will give you a free shipping label, print this out and mail it off in the same box groupon sent to you

5) in about 3 days you'll get emailed your $200

So for $150, you get a lightning cable, a power box, EarPods, and a $200 Apple Store card ( $250 value)

You can do this multiple times, I did

Oh yea, you can walk into a Apple Store and get $200 on the spot, but u have to use it right then on an iPhone or iPad

To assure yourself that the recycler is legit, click through Apple's site: http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/...nd_recycle
Click the iPhone link under "Get a gift card online", and it'll go to the same place as OP's post.
This has the added benefit of better phone selection menu, with phone names (the one OP linked seems to not have names, and not show the entire phone for some people).
I clicked through and it also shows $200 gc, but didn't go all the way through with the offer.

Sounds like a major pain in the ass for it to work. Let's say you are able to buy 5 virgin iphones for $160/each (after tax). You then flip them around for $200 for a gift card (non-liquid). Profit of $40 each. You now have $200 * 5 = $1,000 in gift card value & you spent $800, so you're getting $200 off & some eh headphones and some wall adapters.



More importantly, one can normally get a new Macbook Air or Pro off $100–$250 or so. Is saving like $50–$100 for the amount of work to be done worth it?

Why is $200 Apple Gift Card mentioned as Value $250. May be it is something straightforward but I am not getting it.

So on the trade-in section where it asks which network this is locked to did you select Sprint? If you select "Other" then there is no $200 offer.

I suspect that OP is inferring that the combined value of the $200 GC plus the lightning cable, power box, and ear pods is $250.
