no one knows when promotion will expire. limited time.

quick summary:
the intent of this promotion was to get people to trade in older iphones towards purchase of a new iphone
however.

~11/27/18 to 12/20/18
apple was giving upto 2x on trade in without requiring purchase of anything
there was no limit
so for a iphone 6s, u would get $200 in a gift card.
with the metro deal, people would get 4 x 6s from metro for $160.
then trade them into apple for 4 x $200 gift card ($800)
some people did this multiple times

~12/20/18 after seeing the abuse apple changed the promo to:
(note for iphone 6s only below numbers apply)
$200 for a trade in with purchase today
$200 for a trade in of a previous purchase
$100 for a trade in gift card
some apple store require a purchase of a iphone xs,,xs max, xr
some apple store will allow on the above as well as iwatch /ipad
no one knows what your apple store will require, so best to go and find out for yourself

$200 back for an iPhone 6s with a shitty battery and a broken GPS (that Apple STILL refuses to acknowledge is a thing) isn't terrible.

Appears to work on buying an iPhone 8 as well--not just XS/XR

Not a bad amount for the 6 or 6s, however, you have to pay full price on the new phone which makes this a deal breaker.

What if you're not looking for a new line? I can't find deals on an iPhone 8 anywhere that don't involve new line activation.

If you can use it on the 8, then that's different. I was going off of Apple's page that states XR or XS purchase.

Wasn't there a program where apple can refund you on a prior purchase when trading in after the fact?

Seems like a good deal if you're trading in the older iPhones. $200 credit for an iPhone 6S is decent. Don't have to go through the hassle of selling it online for cash. Don't have to deal with carriers and their bill credits. New iPhone will be unlocked so you can jump carriers.

Yeah it does say that on the trade in page, but I just went to "build" the iPhone 8 and even the 7. right under where you choose the 8/8+/ or 7/7+, there's an "Apple Giveback" thing you can fill out which ends up mentioning the extra credit for trade in, so I assume it works on the 7 and 8 as well... not 100% though.

Yeah, if you could trade in multiple phones it would be slick.

It does seem to work for the 7 and 8 too.
