For those wondering, the $350 in trade-in value is for a “Flawless” 64GB iPhone 5s. If your device has a smashed screen like mine, you’re out of luck.
As revealed by AppleInsider, customers can get a quote for their device during the extended price-lock window between now and September 9.
And this year the company is upping its price-lock window from the historical 30 days to over 50 days in order to make sure consumers can purchase and set up their new iPhone 6 long before having to drop their old iPhone into the mail. Gazelle says anyone who locks in a quote before the September 9 will have until October 10 to send theirs in.
According to the below chart showing historical price changes in device value around new iPhone announcements, Gazelle’s trade-in values typically drop 20 percent in the 60 days around the introduction of a new model.
Of course, eBay or Craigslist might be a better choice.
