Amazon’s Trade-In Program is a Good Way to Get a new Samsung Galaxy S5 or HTC One (M8)

April 10, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Two of the most talked about phones for 2014 are about to hit store shelves. Well the HTC One (M8) is already in most stores, except for T-Mobile stores. But the Samsung Galaxy S5 is hitting stores tomorrow. It’ll be available for T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile. So how are you going to pay for that new phone? Why not just trade in your current phone to help pay off the new one? Sounds like a good plan, right? Well Amazon’s trade-in program is offering some pretty good prices for last years phones. For example, if you have a Galaxy Not 3, you’ll get around $271 for that device, and the Galaxy S4 is going for about $190. While the HTC One (M7) is going for $123 and the Galaxy S3 is going for $100. Which is a pretty good price considering it’s a year-old phone.

Their trade-in program is pretty simple. You look up your device, then tap on the “Trade-in” button, ship it to Amazon, then you’ll get an Amazon gift card for the amount that your phone is worth. Then you can buy your new phone through Amazon. Seems like a good idea, right? Since Amazon does sell everything, might as well give you an Amazon gift card. You’ll find the link to get started down below.

How many of you are tempted to sell your current phone back to Amazon to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the HTC One (M8)? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
