Count your lucky stars if you own a smartphone (which is anyone and everyone these days, right?) – Motorola’s got for you a sweet deal that might be too good to be true and it’s possibly one that you can’t refuse.
The multi-national telecommunications company’s unveiled a new program, called Trade In, that literally does what it’s called – let’s you trade-in your old phones for a new Motorola Moto X or Moto G smartphone, regardless if you’ve ordered one already.
But it’s not a one-for-one exchange; you basically can receive up to US$300 (RM952) for the handset you intend to substitute with Motorola’s new goods. If you’re wondering how you can take advantage of this deal, it’s quite uncomplicated.
All you need to do is get on to the Motorola Trade In website, key in the details of your old phone (there’s even a drop down list as you type to make your life easier) and it then calculates a quote for you.
A worthy deal?
The amount you are stipulated to get back really depends on how old your trade-in phone is, and how badly damaged it is too. We tried to key in details of a 16GB iPhone 5S (in an immaculate condition), and that itself came up to US$240 (RM761) so we’re not quite sure which units will get you US$300 (RM952).
After you send in your old device within 30 days of the confirmed online trade-in, Motorola issues you a Visa pre-paid card for the quoted amount, which you can then use purchase your new Motorola Moto x or Moto G.
If you’ve already pre-ordered any of the two units, you just have to submit your proof of purchase. But it’s worth taking note that you must have made that purchase through MotoMaker.
We’ve contacted Motorola to see if this program will be rolled out to Malaysia, and will update the story once we hear from them. Until then, if you’re really interested in the trade-in, you can get your friends or family in the US to help.
