Now you can trade in your old phone for a Verizon gift card. Verizon Wireless has announced a new store trade-in program that gives you gift card dollars in exchange for your old smartphone.
Phones are evaluated by in-store staff when you bring them in, and Verizon says some models in good condition can fetch up to $300. Once you get a card, you can use it to purchase a new phone or tablet, or pay the monthly bill on a Verizon device you already own.
If you’re not interested in the cash, Verizon also accepts phones the HopeLine from Verizon program, which provides phones to support domestic violence victims.
