What could be better news that learning that the HTC One is now official? How about this: HTC is offering $100 or more for customers that trade in their old handsets towards the purchase of the HTC One.

The promotion is actually pretty straightforward, you pre-register your email and you can then qualify for a Visa prepaid card worth at least $100 or the trade-in value of your phone, whichever is greater. Once you buy your new HTC One you send in your old phone alongside proof of purchase for the HTC One, and they’ll send you the prepaid card.


For those with an older phone sitting in a box or dresser drawer somewhere, this could be the perfect way to get rid of an ancient phone will saving some cash towards your purchase of the HTC One. What do you think, are you planning on picking up the HTC One as soon as it hits your area?

      Don’t think so, and my Nokia from the 90’s is also probably disqualified :(

        Will they accept my dead Nokia 3210?

          Now that they have a deal with Apple, maybe they’ll borrow some of the black and evil magic of Apple and they’ll use it to brake the otherwise unbreakable Nokia and they’ll steal it’s awesome strenght and use it to make an unbreakable Android army? It’s for good cause so sounds good to me :)

    Will they trade my still reliable Siemens S45i for that gorgeous HTC One?? Woah, so that means i could get $100 for a 12 year old phone that isn’t worth jack for the latest premium flagship?? Dreaming and jokes aside, I would assume only the 64Gb Note 2/Droid DNA/IPhone 5 qualify for this $100 exchange programme

    Text says ” $100 or the trade-in value of your phone, whichever is greater”.

    So I’d guess this is a “push, pull or drag it in” event. IE everybody gets $100 off, assuming you didn’t buy it from an out of country, unapproved source for likely $150+ cheaper. LOL.

    There’s no free lunch or beer in these deals ever. Never mistake a corporation for a “good guy”; they have no soul.
