HTC has a few new phone’s on the horizon, and they are hoping to provide an incentive for smartphone shoppers to consider one (or any of their current handsets on the market) as their next purchase. The Taiwanese manufacturer is offering up to $300 in “trade up” value for customers purchasing a new HTC smartphone.
The catch is that, unlike other trade-in programs, you can only claim the value of your phone after purchasing an HTC device. You won’t be able to use the money directly towards the purchase of that phone. Still, HTC has provided a nice online source for getting a quote for your current phone, which should make it easier to bite the bullet up front before sending off your old handset. For instance, HTC is offering $150 dollars for a fully-functional Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx from Verizon.
It may be an avenue worth exploring if you are considering a new smartphone purchase. Head over to HTC’s site to see how much your current device is worth.
