Hot on the heels of yesterday’s reveal of the upcoming Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini, and the new Daydream View headsets, it looks like both Project Fi and the Google Store will be getting a trade-in program for new devices. That’s definitely good news for those of you considering the upcoming Pixel 2 that will be revealed on October 4th.
The trade-in program for Project Fi reveals that Google will offer credit in several forms including a credit to your original form of payment, a store or service credit, a Google Play credit, or any combination of those. Estimates of phone value suggest a 32GB Nexus 6P is worth around $150, while a 32GB iPhone 7 Plus will net you $338.
While this is great news for Project Fi users, the keen eyes over at Droid Life spotted a small addendum to the Pixel in the Google Store that says “the amount you’re credited depends on the model and condition of your phone.” You can also view the terms and conditions of the trade-in service that explicitly mentions the Google Store.
What do you think? Would you be willing to trade in your old phone for service credit or towards a new Pixel device? Let us know in the comments.
