HTC One S now available from T-Mobile, trade-in a smartphone and get $100 back

magenta_deal_days

The T-Mobile HTC One S is now available T-Mobile. If you’re looking to save a little cash, trade-in an old smartphone and T-Mobile will give you a guaranteed $100 when you purchase the HTC One S (or any other 4G phone). If you bring in an iPhone, T-Mobile will double the offer and reward you with a guaranteed $200. If T-Mobile deems your trade-in is worth more, they will reimburse you accordingly.

Qualifying smartphones include any Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone, or Symbian 9.0+ device and customers will be required to sign up for a new two year contract which is subject to a $300 early termination fee. Unfortunately, the cash back offer isn’t immediate. To receive your “cash” you must mail in the trade-in handset, trade-in voucher, and proof of purchase. Once all your paper work is processed, T-Mobile will mail you a pre-paid debit card within 60 days.

If you’re looking to buy a new phone or had plans to pick up the HTC One S today, T-Mobile’s Magenta Deal Days is a great way to save some extra cash. Anyone trading in an iPhone for the HTC One S will essentially get the phone for free after the $50 mail-in rebate and trade-in reimbursement are processed.

Are any of you planning on purchasing the HTC One S? Will you take advantage of the Magenta Deal Days offer or will you try to recuperate a little more cash by listing your phone on CraigsList or eBay?

BELLEVUE, Wash. — April 24, 2012 — Cleaning out your tech closet to trade in an old phone for a trade up to a super-fast 4G smartphone has never been easier or more affordable than during T-Mobile’s new “Magenta Deal Days” promotion. Customers have the opportunity to receive a guaranteed trade-in value of $50–$200 when they exchange their old working phone and upgrade to a new, super-fast T-Mobile 4G smartphone. The two-week sale will take place from Wednesday, April 25, through Tuesday, May 8.

The “Magenta Deal Days” trade-in offer allows customers to receive a guaranteed value toward any           T-Mobile 4G smartphone, including the Samsung Galaxy S II, the HTC Radar4G and the hot new HTC One S powered by Android4.0(Ice Cream Sandwich) and equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED screen, an 8-megapixel camera with “Pure Capture,” DLNA and Beats Audio integration.1

“T-Mobile continues to make getting a great 4G smartphone easy with our latest ‘Magenta Deal Days’ promotion,” said John Clelland, senior vice president of marketing, T-Mobile USA. “No matter how old their phone, and even if it’s valued less, T-Mobile will offer customers a guaranteed minimum trade-in value so they can get rid of those old devices gathering dust and move up to a newer, faster T-Mobile 4G smartphone.”

In partnership with The Wireless Source Inc. (TWS), a leader in consumer electronics collection programs, a trained T-Mobile representative will determine the guaranteed trade-in value of each device and a rebate card for the quoted amount will be given to the customer via a mail-in rebate process. Customers have the ability to check the guaranteed value of their device before going to a T-Mobile retail store by snapping the below QR code or going to http://m.t-mobile.com/4Gtrade to find out how much they will receive for the trade-in.
