Are you looking at getting the new iPhone 4S when it is released, but you really don’t have the disposable income right now? Well we may have a solution for you. If you head over to the Apple Recycling Program page and enter your iPhone’s information, you may be eligible to receive $200 for your device. Now before you head over there, as you can see by the picture above they are offering $200 on the black iPhone 4 32 GB in excellent condition. But I did enter my information to see how much I was eligible for, and they gave me an estimate of $180. That is only $19 less than I paid for my 16GB Black iPhone 4 a year ago, not a bad deal at all. Now one of the downsides to the program is you will get a gift card for the amount given to you for your phone in the mail, which will be good for any future purchases at any Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store.
Here are some more details about the program for you to take a look at:
Get an Apple Gift Card for the value of your old device.
Turn that iPhone, iPad, or computer — Mac or PC — you’re not using anymore into something brand new. Send it to us and we’ll determine if it qualifies for reuse. If it does, that means your device has monetary value that we’ll apply to an Apple Gift Card, which you can use for purchases at any Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store. If your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC doesn’t qualify for reuse, we’ll recycle it responsibly at no cost to you.
Here’s how to get your gift card:
Tell us about your device.
Only iPhone, iPad, and Mac or PC desktop and notebook computers qualify for the Apple Reuse and Recycling Program.
Get your estimate and ship your device.
Apple contracts with PowerON,1 who will estimate the fair market value of your product. PowerON will provide convenient prepaid options to package and ship your product to their facility for evaluation.
Receive your Apple Gift Card.
After a short time, your Apple Gift Card will arrive in the mail. Use it for purchases at any Apple Retail Store or the Apple Online Store.
So if you are one of those that upgrade your iPhone when a new one is released, why not check this program out.
