As a parent, well there is seems to always be a need for extra money. The kids are always needing or wanting something. And with the back to school shopping season starting back up, well, the need for that extra money is even greater. With a husband and 2 kids in school, well there is quite a big list when it comes to the school supplies, and with the tech gear that makes student life easier and that is also topping some of those lists, I end up finding myself spending more and more money each year. One place that we love to shop at when it comes to our back to school tech needs is Best Buy. I mean, I can get the laptops, tablets, printers and printer supplies there, and all for great prices. Another thing that I love going there for is, for when we need to upgrade our phones. I can find our carrier kiosk there, then find the latest phones they have, and on top of the rest of the back to school shopping I can get our phones as well. One thing that can make all of my shopping at Best Buy even greater is being able to take those old phones that we have in a drawer at home, and trade them in for gift cards to Best Buy. Well up until recently, I had no idea that I could do such a thing and that Best Buy did this everyday at the Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores! I mean, for those phones that have been sitting in a drawer all of this time, I can get up to $200 in a gift card that I can use either towards a new phone, or for all of that back to school shopping that I will be doing.
I mean, a $200 gift card to Best Buy can really go a long way, and can also really help out with all of this back to school shopping. I found that those phones in my drawer, even the old ones that I considered to be outdated, well they were still worth some money! The process of getting rid of those old phones is very easy. First you can head over to the Best Buy Mobile site, and find a Best Buy near you that is participating. Then get your phones and check the trade in value of your phones by going here. Or if you are wanting to participate in a phone upgrade, you can check and see what phones are available as well as the status of your phone for a upgrade from your carrier by using the Upgrade Checker! I use AT&T, and for the Apple iPhone 4 16GB in White, I can get up to $105 in a Best Buy Gift Card, or I can upgrade to the new iPhone 5 or many of the other AT&T phones that are available for me to upgrade to! Another great thing about using Best Buy Mobile, aside from the fact that I can get gift cards to spend in store on the old phones that I no longer use, or that I can take my old phone and upgrade it to the newer model that I want without spending a whole lot of extra money, I can also transfer my old contacts to my new phone, make any changes I might need to make to my AT&T account which you can also do with many of the other mobile carriers there as well, I can get Geek Squad Protection, and I can also shop for all of the accessories I might need for my new mobile phone all at the Best Buy Mobile center in my Best Buy Store!! So if you have any old phones sitting around that you no longer use, or if you are wanting to upgrade your old phone, head on over to Best Buy Mobile and see what your old phones are worth today!
