BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2013) - As the launch date for a new iPhone gets closer, the value of old iPhones tends to depreciate rather quickly. To help consumers get the best value, Gazelle, the nation's leading consumer electronics trade-in site, today announced the extension of its industry-leading 30-day price lock guarantee to up to 50 days for orders placed before September 10, 2013. With this extended price lock, consumers can get today's price for their old or unwanted iPhone, and hold onto their device until after the new iPhone is in hand. Consumers who lock in an offer between today and September 10 will have until October 15 to send their old iPhones to Gazelle.
"Our price lock promotion allows savvy consumers to maximize the value of their old iPhone and lets them wait until after the new iPhone is here to send in their old one," said Sarah Welch, chief marketing officer, Gazelle. "In many cases we pay enough to cover the full cost of upgrading to a new phone. We've been doing this quietly for years to help our customers get great value despite the potential challenges of getting their hands on a new iPhone in the early days of a launch, and we're delighted to extend the price lock program even further this year."
To participate in the extended price lock offer, consumers simply go to Gazelle.com, select "iPhone," tell us what model and carrier they have, and the condition of their phone. We'll quote a price and send shipping materials for free. Consumers simply need to send us their old iPhone by October 15 and we'll send them the cash.
Consumers are also encouraged to pre-order their new iPhone from Apple or their carrier to be sure they are eligible to take advantage of this offer, since it can be hard to get your hands on the new iPhone in the early days of a launch. Consumers are under no obligation to send in their phone, so if predictions of the new iPhone launch date turn out to be wrong, there's no risk to the consumer to get an offer.
