Basically if you take in your old device, be it a Sprint device as a current customer or a non Sprint device as a future customer, you could get a huge chunk of in-store credit. Maximum credit is $300. Each device gains you a different credit amount. In my case my Samsung Vibrant would get me $59.00. I went through and checked out a chunk of the various devices and their credit amounts to share some of the top credit offers and which devices they are.
- Samsung Galaxy S II T-Mobile – $175
- HTC One S – $200
- HTC One X AT&T – $200
- HTC Rezound Verizon – $120
- Motorola DROID RAZR Verizon – $150
- Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Verizon – $160
- LG Optimus LTE – $150
Just to name a few of the better prices. There were some that seemed WAY to low, like the Droid Xyboard 8.2 16GB is offered $80. We are sure you would have better lucking hitting up Craigslist or Swappa if you are looking to get the most money out of your device. Still, it is nice to see Sprint has a trade in option to get some monetary credit. Stipulations state you can return up to five devices per active line of service for account credit in a 12 month period. Seems like a person could rack up quite a great credit balance pretty easily.
Has anyone out there used the Sprint Buyback Program for upgrades or to switch carriers? If you are interested to know what Sprint would pay you for your current device, hit them up at SprintBuyback.com and check it out.
