Gazelle Pre-Order Promotion Offers Consumers Like New iPhones at Substantial Savings

Mixed iPhone 6S Reviews Make Consumers Consider Options; Special Promotion Allows Savings of up to $180 off iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - September 24, 2015) - Gazelle, Inc., the nation's leader in buying and reselling pre-owned consumer electronics, today announced a limited time promotion allowing consumers to pre-order a Gazelle Certified pre-owned iPhone and save up to $180 on an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus versus buying new. The special promotion is available from September 24 through September 30 while supplies last. Phones will be delivered within two to three weeks or sooner.

"With the end of carrier subsidies and mixed reviews of the latest iPhone release, consumers are exploring options," said Sarah Welch, chief marketing officer for Gazelle. "Gazelle always offers consumers substantial savings but this promotion provides even greater savings -- up to $180 versus buying new -- for customers who pre-order a certified pre-owned iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. A little bit of patience can add up to big savings."

Gazelle recently commissioned a survey of more than 500 smart device owners across the U.S. and found that many consumers are confused and angry at their wireless carrier and looking for alternatives. The survey showed that 42% are angry about losing carrier subsidies on the purchase of new iPhones, which now cost $650 or more, even when broken up into smaller monthly installments. Gazelle survey results also indicate that less than 10% of smart device owners are interested in Apple's new iPhone Upgrade Program and 80% are not planning to buy the new iPhone 6s.
