I personally had an old Samsung Epic laying around and I have been trying to figure out what I could do with it. I knew that there are websites that you can send your phone into and if you are lucky they will give you money for it, but then you have to deal with the shipping and everything else that they make you do to even accept your phone. So I decided to bring it to my local Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store and they took care of me with no hassles. I was able to get a $25 Gift Card for my phone that I could use on anything in the store. I decided to save it for later so that I could buy a new phone once I had a little more money. They were super fast and easy to deal with!

As I said before I decided to keep my gift card for later. All of the options these stores have is incredible. They even offered to check to see if I had an available upgrade, which of course I didn't since we are now a prepaid family, but it was nice to know that when we do decide to go back to contracted phones that we can do everything we need at our local Best Buy.
Right now we just have a cheap little phone that doesn't do much, and will be upgrading very soon. So I decided to ask about my options with Best Buy to see what they could do for me once I did decide to get a new phone. First they told me about some of their phones, and how they have very competitive prices and have phones from Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. I told them that I was very interested in a Windows phone so that it was compatible with my new Windows 8 computer. They told me that not only can they find me a great Windows phone at a great price but that Geek Squad can help show me how to connect the two devices and show me how they work! If I were to get Geek Squad Protection on my phone they will always be available by phone if I have any issues later on.
You can see some of the press that Best Buy's Trade in program has gotten here.
I am really glad that I was able to participate in this program and learn about all the options Best Buy has to offer! If you have any phones laying around you should look into trading yours in at Best Buy. You can find Best Buy and all of their wonderful products here.
