HTC Offering $100 Visa Gift Card Trade In Deal For the One


Well, if you know for certain that the HTC One is your next smartphone, why not make a little money while you are at it? For a limited time, HTC is offering $100 Visa gift card or the trade-in value of your old phone (whichever is greater) when purchasing a new One. If you are sending in your old phone, all you have to do is buy a One, then send HTC your old phone with proof of purchase for a One, then sit back and wait for your refund. 

It’s certainly an interesting way of getting people to buy their new phone, but when people hear about free money, it’s almost too good to pass up.


($100 to be exact)*

  • Crap to participate on the offer you need to buy the phone on or before March 31st.My upgrade date is on April 1st….. Fail. Oh well I guess I be getting the Note 2 or the the optimus G pro if it comes to Sprint.

    • This means they will release the phone before March 31st here in the states.

  • Austin Warren

    Too bad S4 and Note 3 are coming. Plus Beats audio is a complete rip off.

  • That picture of it looks awesome… too bad it’s only 4.7 and has those messed up buttons!

  • Fattie McDoogles

    This could be a great deal. I wanna know how much the One is going to cost first.

  • If it wasn’t for the fact that any OS updates will be 6 months to a year late on this phone because it’s an HTC, then I’d get it in a heartbeat.

      Clearly you didn’t see when the Sensation and Amaze 4G got ICS, you can blame VZW for the delays there.

      • Neomastermind

        They’ll hold onto that update just in time for their next flagship to debut. After that comes out they’ll release a buggy update, which compels you to upgrade.

          —Verizon, ruining customer satisfaction in order to make more money—

    • mustbepbs

      ICS coming early 2012, right?


      -Rezound owner who went Galaxy Nexus

      • JoshGroff

        And yet the G-nex is what, 3 or 4 updates behind now?

        • mustbepbs

          At least it got Jelly Bean.

          • JoshGroff

            It was also released with ICS, now if it gets KLP oficially, then you might have a valid point. Also, it’s a Nexus, I would hope it gets software in a timely manner. Although, IIRC, it still took 2 months to get the update?

  • Intrigued — now only if this came out on Verizon. This is roughly the normal Swappa price on my old Thunderbolt though.

  • rfnk

    What if it is a non-working thunderbolt I threw against the concrete because it was the worst phone I’ve ever owned?

  • Cliff Wynne

    Tempted if the unlocked GSM model is reasonable…

  • Itzdacooldude

    $250 easy they always try and rip people off with a trade in

  • akazerotime

    Maybe a good way to bypass carrier subsidies on 2 year contracts if you can buy direct from the manufacture. I rather give HTC, Samsung, LG, or whoever has the best phone directly my money and not to VZW.

  • Hmmmm. I’m currently using my Evo LTE. I still have my old Hero laying around…perhaps I’ll send them the Hero 😉

    • strozykowski

      I was wondering if this was a valid option, as I have a Hero laying around as well.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    hmmmmm I’ll dig out my OG EVO and send it to them… THEN i’ll sell my GS3 on Swappa. CA-CHING

  • Justin Winker

    If it wasn’t for the X phone coming down the road, I’d be all over sending my Bionic in for this so I could test drive a One. I love the idea of front-facing speakers on this device.

  • StoneColdCarl

    Anyone know how much the HTC One X will sell for these days?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Check Swappa

      • snowblind64

        This. I just sold my Galaxy Nexus for $200 on Swappa. I had a great experience selling my phone using their service. Much better than CraigsList (too many idiots and flakes) or eBay.

        • Chris

          Yeah I bought my Thunderbolt a while back on Craigslist, but I love the security I get with Swappa. Plus I just found an AMAZING deal on a Rezound for $100! I already had a Rezound but I think the digitizer might be messed up. =/
