In advance of iPhone 4S availability tomorrow, your local Target store is now offering a price lock guarantee for iPhone trade-ins through its partnership with NextWorth, a leader in consumer electronics upgrades and trade-ins.
Customers can go to all Chicagoland Target locations to lock in a trade-in value for their old iPhone model and receive the quoted value when they pick up their new iPhone 4S.
This is the first time Target has locked in trade-in values prior to product availability. Trade-in values are based on used iPhones in good working order, rather than phones in excellent or flawless condition, so the vast majority of people will qualify unless you've got a Carrie Bradshaw phone. (ha.) Phone trade-in values range from $200 for a iPhone 4 to $101 for an 8GB 3GS.
