Best Buy Trade In Cell Phone Verizon
Download >>> https://fancli.com/2tEkHa
I pre-ordered thru Best Buy. The Note 8 needs to be activated prior to trade-in and the fine print from Best Buy states to perform the trade in at vzw.com. I tried this and the site displayed an error every time I tried (every day since I received my phone early on Sep. 6). I asked a rep via chat what I should do. They said I should go to a Verizon store and ask them to process the trade. I went to the store only for them to tell me they couldn't process the trade since I bought the phone at Best Buy (I tried to explain it's a VERIZON promotion, but they stood by their word). I called Verizon Customer Service from the parking lot and they walked me through the process on the website again. It failed again. They asked, again, to have a store associate process it for me. This time, while phone rep was on speaker phone, the store manager processed the trade. I let the customer service rep go since the store manager assured me he now understood what needed to be done. Here's the tricky part. The trade was only processed for $190 - as a gift card. I was told not to use the gift card and he would 'take care of it'. Upon returning home, I called customer service again to let them know what ended up happening. They said this is actually what was supposed to happen - the value of the phone will not show the promotional value until the phone is received by the Verizon warehouse and verified to be in good condition. In other words, the store will need to ship my trade-in to the corporate warehouse and when they receive it, the $480 credit ($20/month over 24 months) will be applied to my bill. I was instructed again to NOT use the gift card. To me, they're making things WAY more complicated than they need to be and not having ANY confirmation of any kind that I will obtain the $480 credit - not even a receipt for the trade - makes me a little nervous. Curious to hear what other people's experiences were like.
Congrats on your new phone bgblktruck. I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience trading in your phone. We should never send you to different places to resolve one issue. What phone did you trade in?
Bgblktruck, thanks so much for letting us know what phone you traded in and explaining to us the process that you went through. Did the store manager indicate they were sending the phone in on your behalf? Did you get a trade in submission ID?
Cell phone deals are easy to find these days. Whether you're looking for unlocked phones, prepaid phones, or the best cheap phones worth buying, retailers have made it easier than ever to score cheap cell phone deals any time of the year.
However, when shopping for cell phone deals it's important to first figure out what kind of deal you want. Sales generally fall into three categories: locked phones, prepaid phones, and those tied to a carrier. You'll pay more out of pocket for the former, but the other two options essentially tie you down to one carrier.

Although smartphones and tablets with damaged screens were originally only accepted for recycling, Best Buy has since updated its policy to give store credit for these devices. However, screen damage does decrease the trade-in values of these devices considerably (more on that in a bit).
Please note that while our quote is particularly for models on the Verizon network, unlocked smartphones are generally worth more than their carrier-locked counterparts. To learn how to unlock your cell phone and maximize your payout, click here.
Most carriers and retailers are offering some form of S22 deal right now, especially if you've got an older device you're looking to trade in. We've rounded up the best Galaxy S22 deals that you can shop and we will continue to update this page as new offers become available, so keep checking back if your carrier or preferred retailer is not listed below.
Best Buy offers support for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile upgrades and new lines both in-store and online, which means you can take advantage of some carrier offers on the S22 Ultra at the moment. You can save up to $300 through Verizon or $250 through either AT&T or T-Mobile with a new line of service. If you prefer an unlocked model, Best Buy is also offering $300 off the S22 Ultra, though you'll have to choose same-day activation to get the discount (essentially defeating the point of an unlocked phone). Best Buy also has its own trade-in program where you can save even more. 781b155fdc
