Are you ready to get a new smartphone? If so, check out this money saving deal from Walmart. Starting September 21, people who bring in their existing phone to a Walmart or Sam’s Club store can earn a credit of anywhere from $50 to $300. The trade-in price depends on the brand and its condition. As a few examples, a working iPhone 5 can score you $300, a Samsung Galaxy S3 $175, and a Galaxy S2 $52. Coincidentally — or not — Walmart’s news comes just a few hours before Apple is expected to unveil one or more new iPhones.
Buyers must then apply the credit toward the purchase of a new smartphone. Customers can choose a phone with the standard two-year agreement or pick a model through Walmart’s prepaid contract-free Straight Talk plan.
