DALLAS -- Military shoppers who have an old cell phone or two lying around gathering dust can now trade them in for credit toward a Smart Phone upgrade at the Exchange Mobile Center.
A trade-in can result in instant credit toward the purchase of a new Smart Phone, accessory or even insurance for a new phone. The new program, "Trade-Up and Save," is available only at Exchange Mobile Center in-store locations in the continental United States.
"This is an eco-friendly program that makes it even easier for military shoppers to buy that hot, new Smart Phone, upgrade early or just change their mobile look with a colorful new skin or cover," said the Exchange's Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson.
Shoppers can trade in up to three handsets per transaction and the credit must be applied toward a purchase at that time. Trade-in values vary depending on model, condition, age and market factors.
The Exchange Mobile Center Exchange carries the latest models and accessories as well as experts who can assist in understanding features and plans.
