HTC Details Its Upcoming Deals for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Beyond

HTC is getting in on the deals action for next week, and has detailed its plans for Black Friday, the weekend, Cyber Monday, and beyond. Stated in a release from HTC, the company will be offering a trade-in program for the One A9, where you can score the device for as little as $0 down by trading in your old smartphone. Naturally, this all depends on what you end up trading in for the device.

If you trade in an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, HTC will grant you a $499 rebate, which is the exact full retail price of the One A9. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can trade in a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge for a $200 rebate (ouch), and use that towards the cost of the One A9. For those who trade in a LG G3 or LG G4, you only receive $100 rebate to put towards a One A9.  (more…)
