Is Apple’s new iPhone trade in promotion worthwhile?

You might already know that SellTrade is the best place to get the most cash for your old iPhone.
This is especially true when it comes to trading your old iPhone in with your local carrier like Vodacom or MTN who act as a middleman, giving you the lowest possible value for your iPhone.
Every once in a while, a special “limited time” promotion comes around to sweeten the deal but in most cases, these typically still don’t measure up to the value you get when selling directly to SellTrade.

What is Apple’s latest trade-in promotion?
One of the latest trade-in deals you may have heard about is the new Apple  promo which looks to boost the trade-in value for your old iPhone when upgrading to a new iPhone XS/Max or iPhone XR.
This move was due to the price of new iPhones hitting an all-time high (Exspecially with the Rand hitting record lows against the US Dollar) so Apple is hoping to entice you by dangling a carrot on a stick.
The question is whether or not this new Apple trade-in promotion is actually worth it?

Heading over to the  Apple promo you’ll notice they only show you the price of a new iPhone XS/ Max or XR after trade-in (assuming your iPhone is still in good condition!)
Have a look at the actual trade-in value you get when handing over your old iPhone to your nearest Apple store and how it compares to the trade-in value at SellTrade.

Another Question. Why pay full price?
One thing to ask yourself when considering Apple’s trade-in deal is why you’d want less for a newer trade-in, while at the same time paying more for a brand new iPhone?
You can head over to places like BidorBuy where you can save bundles by buying a gently used model. Most of them even come with 6 months plus warranties.

Another thing. Why not get yourself an iPhone no longer sold by Apple?
For Instance. Why get a mid-range iPhone XR when a slightly used iPhone X can be bought on places like BidorBuy/OLX for less than R 10 000?

As you know used iPhone prices are always falling. It’s always worthwhile to find discontinued iPhone models like the iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 8/8 Plus, as well as the iPhone X.
These iPhones are all great phones and all upgradeable to the latest iOS 13 which will be launched sometime September 2019.

By doing the above comparisons you will see that SellTrade is still the best place for selling or trading in your old iPhone.
And if you decide to take advantage of Apple’s trade-in deals, no problem.
