Gazelle Extends iPhone Price Lock Guarantee Again, Launches $1 Million
Consumers Can Lock in Today's Value But Keep Their Old iPhones Until
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/16/13 -- Gazelle, the nation's
leading consumer electronics trade-in site, today announced its
second price lock extension. With this new price lock option
consumers can lock in today's price for their old iPhone, giving them
until October 31, to send their unwanted iPhone to Gazelle. Following
the recent iPhone announcement, the value of old iPhones is expected
to continue to depreciate relatively quickly over the next month.
"Since Apple doesn't appear to be offering pre-orders for the new
iPhone 5S, we wanted to give our customers peace of mind that they
can still get today's value while having plenty of time to get their
new iPhone before letting go of their old model," said Sarah Welch,
chief marketing officer, Gazelle. "Our price lock guarantee is one of
many reasons consumers have made Gazelle their trade-in site of
choice. We're committed to making the process of getting great value
for used phones easy and hassle-free -- plus, you won't have to wait
in line at a store."
To participate in the extended price lock offer, consumers can go to
Gazelle.com by September 30, select "iPhone," tell us what model and
carrier they have, and the condition of their phone. We'll quote a
price and send shipping materials for free. Consumers simply need to
send us their old iPhone by October 31 and we'll send them the cash.
More information is available at www.gazelle.com.
Consumers should order their new iPhone from Apple or their carrier
as soon as possible once the phone is available, beginning on
September 20, to be sure they are eligible to take advantage of this
offer, since it can be hard to get your hands on the new iPhone in
the early days of a launch. Consumers are under no obligation to send
in their phone.
