I just placed the order to upgrade my old iPhone 6+ to a new 13 mini.
In doing so, I saw a Verizon promotion that may interest others. In exchange for upgrading to an unlimited data plan, Verizon is going to give me a $350 trade-in value on my old 6+ (paid over 24 months, even thought I’m paying the full price up front for the new phone ). The normal trade-in value for a 6+ is $10, so this is quite the deal (assuming upgrading your data plan is acceptable, of course).
If I was trading in a more modern phone, the amount would have been even higher. Someone trading in an iPhone 12 would get $700 back - equal to the full cost of a 128G 13 mini.
Has anyone else here noticed incentive pricing from their wireless service providers?
