CINCINNATI -- If you have an old iPhone lying around, you may be able to trade it in for a FREE iPhone 5.
On June 1, Best Buy gave customers a $150 trade-in credit for any working iPhone 4 or 4S, making the iPhone 5 free. The company said after doing this, it had its biggest day ever for its four-year old trade-in program.
So Best Buy is doing it again.
The promotion begins this Friday and runs for the following 9 days.
The deal is, if you have a working iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S model you can trade it in to get a free iPhone 5 in return.
If Best Buy deems your older phone worth more than the $149.99 price of an iPhone 5, it'll make up the difference with a Best Buy gift card.
To qualify you must be eligible for a phone upgrade with your wireless carrier. You can get a phone from Verizon Wireless, AT&T or Sprint.
The deal also requires you to get a new two-year data plan.
The move by Best Buy comes as the tech retailer adjusts its focus on mobile devices and other popular areas. The tech retail environment is a tough one, and Best Buy itself has been struggling, USA Today reports.
