AT&T Is Offering $100 (or More) for Your Old Smartphone

Starting May 1 (and for a limited time), if you bring a smartphone that's less than three years old and still in "good, working condition" into an AT&T store, you can get $100 or more to use toward the purchase of a new phone.

Starting May 1 (and for a limited time), if you bring a smartphone that’s less than three years old and still in “good, working condition” into an AT&T store, you can get $100 or more to use toward the purchase of a new phone. You’ll have to sign up for a two-year contract with AT&T to get the deal.

Since many smartphones cost $200 with a two-year contract, AT&T positions this as a “50% off” deal, though the company mentions that a smartphone priced at $99.99 with a two-year contract would be free under this scenario. AT&T also says, “Some trade-in phones may have a value higher than $100. In this case, customers will receive the credit at the higher value.”

I confirmed with an AT&T rep that this deal is good for current AT&T subscribers at the end of their two-year contracts as well. So if you’re with AT&T already and you’re due for a new phone, you can trade in your current smartphone for $100 or more in credit and then start another two-year foray into the wild world of wireless.

It would be a whole lot better if they didn't charge you the tax on the full retail price of the phone.  I hate paying for a new phone for $99 & have to pay another $60 in sales tax because the retail price is $699
