Device buy back or upgrade

Why choose ProtectCELL for smartphone trade-in?

Why choose ProtectCELL for smartphone trade-in?

9/19/2013

With so many new smartphones coming out soon, you're probably asking yourself how soon you'll be snagging them. But there might be a couple of things standing in your way, like your checking account balance, for one. Plus, if you already have a cellphone, there's the problem of what you're going to do with it. Trade-in is always an appealing option for making sure the transition goes smoothly and with as little trauma to your wallet as possible, but will standard buyback options cut it?

If you're thinking about trading in your current mobile gadget, you're definitely not alone. A recent study by The NPD Group found that 55 percent of smartphone users who are aware of trade-in options are planning to take advantage of those opportunities for their next upgrade. While only 13 percent of respondents have taken the chance to trade in in the past, researchers say this is largely because many users didn't know about these programs before.

Choose wisely
However, you probably shouldn't jump at the first trade-in option you come across. According to Forbes, you need to not only make sure to look into what programs will offer the best value, but you have to be sure to get prepared in other ways, too. For instance, the source advised backing up all the data you'll want to retain before making the switch. That way, you won't end up losing any contact information, photos or other information you would have wanted. Parting with your current mobile phone isn't a great time to encounter any surprises, and once it's gone, there's no going back.

If you want a trade-in program that combines great value with the backup you need, a strong choice is to get a ProtectCELL protection plan that includes cell phone buyback. This way, ProtectCELL can take care of the hard stuff (getting your information secured) and can you reap the benefits once you're ready for a new device. As long as you've been with ProtectCELL for 30 days, your phone is in good condition and you've qualified for trade-in based on any other conditions that may apply, you'll get up to 50 percent of the full retail price of your existing device within one year of purchase. Plus, between 13 months and two years, you'll get up to 25 percent back. That's going to be a substantial chunk of change - one you can put directly to setting yourself up with the latest and greatest smartphone.
