Google has launched a new trade in program for those interested in picking up a Pixel device. The trade in program will offer customers who own select devices up to
$388 (updated 9/28/17) $410 for their old phone.
The 32 GB Pixel which is out of stock normally sells for $649 or $27.04/month with device financing, while the 128 GB variant goes for $749, or $31.21/month with financing.
The 32 GB Pixel XL sells for $769 or $32.04/month with financing while the 128 GB is $869 or $36.21/month with financing.
If you've got the right phone to trade in, you can get a new Pixel for about $264. Of course, if you are considering a trade in, you'll probably want to wait until next week when Google announces its next generation of Pixel devices at which point you can trade in your old Pixel for a new one.
Devices Eligible For Trade In
Google will accept the following devices for trade in:
- Nexus 6: $35-$80
- Nexus 5X: $82.50-$115
- Nexus 6P: $113-165
- Google Pixel XL $162-$410
- Google Pixel $150-$360
- LG G6: $35.20-230
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5: $61-150
- Samsung Galaxy S7: $52-$150
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: $40.40-$175
- Samsung Galaxy S8: $59.60-$305
- Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus: $66-$345
- iPhone 6: $35-$143
- iPhone 7 Plus: $68-$388
- iPhone SE: $30-$143
Google is offering a range of prices for each device depending on which carrier version you have and what condition the device is in.
In order to get the maximum amount of $388 for a trade in, you must have a 256 GB iPhone 7 Plus Verizon variant in pristine condition. If you've got a cracked screen you can still trade in your device, and in the case of the 256 GB iPhone 7 Plus Verizon variant, you could get $201.50 for it.
Although the trade in value offered for each device may not be the best deal around, it's nice to see a non carrier offer a trade in program for a high end unlocked device that also has device financing available. That way you have the option to purchase a device on an installment plan without feeling locked into a carrier and what may not be the cheapest cell phone plan around for your needs.
