Gazelle Extends iPhone Price Lock Guarantee Again, Launches $1 Million Sweepstakes

Consumers Can Lock in Today's Value But Keep Their Old iPhones Until October 31st

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) - Gazelle, the nation's leading consumer electronics trade-in site, today announced its second price lock extension. With this new price lock option consumers can lock in today's price for their old iPhone, giving them until October 31, to send their unwanted iPhone to Gazelle. Following the recent iPhone announcement, the value of old iPhones is expected to continue to depreciate relatively quickly over the next month.

"Since Apple doesn't appear to be offering pre-orders for the new iPhone 5S, we wanted to give our customers peace of mind that they can still get today's value while having plenty of time to get their new iPhone before letting go of their old model," said Sarah Welch, chief marketing officer, Gazelle. "Our price lock guarantee is one of many reasons consumers have made Gazelle their trade-in site of choice. We're committed to making the process of getting great value for used phones easy and hassle-free -- plus, you won't have to wait in line at a store." 

To participate in the extended price lock offer, consumers can go to Gazelle.com by September 30, 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 31 and we'll send them the cash. More information is available at www.gazelle.com.

Consumers should order their new iPhone from Apple or their carrier as soon as possible once the phone is available, beginning on September 20, 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.
