In March 2015, Apple caused waves when they announced that they would be accepting Android, Windows Mobile and Blackberry phones as trade-in options, clearly part of their campaign to get to you to join the iOS way of life.
Locally, Core Group, the official local distributor of Apple products, have just announced that iStores will now accept Samsung devices as trade-ins when you upgrade or purchase a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Is it coincidence that this announcement comes the very same day that Samsung’s new flagship, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, goes on sale? I think not.
If the glistening Apple offer is tempting you (as Apples have always tempted people, both in real life and fairytales) then you’ll need to fill out a voucher form. As with every contract, it’s always advisable to read the terms & conditions. Don’t expect to get your money immediately and don’t think that you can trade-in your busted up, water damaged, “oops I accidentally dropped it 15 times” Samsung.
The device you’re trading in will need to be in “good condition” and you will receive your money as an electronic funds transfer within 14 days of purchase.
And just in case you’re wondering what the iStore is offering for your Samsung device should you trade it in, take a look below.
