I was at the apple store to get iPhone Xs 64gb under this promo, unfortunately I did not understand the vague promo details, so they are offering $380 for my iPhone 7plus 128gb, but I have to buy the iPhone Xs on full price i.e 1379+tax and apply the trade in credit on that price. I did not trade it in will keep my iPhone 7 plus, but disappointed with their questionable advertisement..

I realize the iPhone 6 is pretty long in the tooth, but can't you sell it for more than $150?
Or is it worth keeping as a burner or backup phone?
I'm debating if I can stretch another year out of my iPhone 6...then perhaps get into an iPhone xs next year cheaper.
pros and cons. You probably can sell for more than 150, but there's all the work to sell - trading in, you're paying for not having that work at all, you walk in, give your phone, leave with a new one. As for keep it, hard to say, depends on you I guess...

If your iPhone 6 serves you well, I'd wait. Also if you're waiting or planing to sell, check for a new battery, they're replacing for new ones for $35 (some known buggy are getting those for free.)

That is right the iPhone XR is $1030 and the XS is $1380 take away $380 and you get the advertised values... $650 and $1000. It doesn’t matter how much storage you have all iPhones hold the same trade in value. The promo is best for those with an iPhone 6s they get the biggest boost in trade in.

Can you trade in the iphone 6s just for a gift card only? I know Apple US that deal going on.

I traded an iPhone 6 for $150 off at the Apple store. Unfortunately you can only trade 1 phone for 1 phone. I tried to trade two iPhone 6 phones but they wouldn't take it. They said they will take an iphone+ipad in exchange for an XR but not two iphones.
Complete bogus horse manure from apple lol they’re giving you gift cards, not like it’s a true “trade in” like when you trade in a car at a dealership or when you trade in video games for another game. I don’t see why they can’t allow multiple phones to be traded in.

No bonus for the iPhone 8?
The bonus for the 8 (if any) won’t be worth it because the phone is still relatively new (1 year) that you’ll be able to sell it a lot easier and hassle free than a 6 plus which is old and more prone to issues.

Are you able to purchased a higher capacity (XR 128GB or XS 256GB) iPhone instead of the base versions?

Also, is the XS worth the extra cost over the XR?

Which locations are you guys getting the bumped up values?

I went to Yorkdale yesterday and the rep told me to check the values online. I said the values online don’t show the bonus and he said whatever it is online is what the value is...which didn’t seem right

Interesting. The specialist I spoke with over the phone says the Xs and Xr model lines are eligible for the credit. I explicitly asked if it applies to the Max and he said it is applicable.

actually got that value for an XS (trading in a 6S) - they gave me $230 gift card on that: $1379 (MSRP) - $230 (6S TIV) = $1149 from the chart)

I tried Eaton today and they flat out told me I would only get $125 as a gift card for my 6S using that online assessment tool in front of me vs the $230 promotion. Which location was this?

just came back from yorkdale. ignore my previous comment - the trade-in is given as an Apple store gift card which can be used on any iphone. The salesrep didn't even look at my phone - just placed it straight into a zip lock bag and applied the credit to my purchase. quite a few people were coming in to trade-in their phones (bunch of 6s pluses which gave $250 regardless of the memory size)

Good luck on actually getting it - in store they seem to know next to nothing about it, they tell you the chart is a guideline only. The actual trade in values seem to follow the ones you can get quoted online: so 315 for a 7 plus, 350 for an 8, etc. Massive headache and frustration.
Hardly worth it when I sold my iphone 7 (not the +) for 300 today, was asking 425 but said screw it, I have the pixel 3 xl now.

For those of you doing a trade like this just sell privately as it probably won't take long then you have more towards the phone.

Whoever purchased a new phone through the promo, did you have to pay the price of the new phone including tax first, then the trade-in value was deducted? I'm trying to calculate what the exact amount I would get to pay. Thanks!!

They put the value on a gift card. They calculate full cost of the new iPhone you’re buying with taxes and then deduct the value of your gift card after.

Everything worked fine today when I traded in my iphone 6s plus. Received $250 TIV and picked up an XsMax 64GB. The specialist i dealt with indicated that the trade-in credit could be applied any device including ipad and iwatch contrary to what their advertisement says. My gf will go in tomorrow and trade in her iphone 6 for $150 towards the iwatch.
