Apple now offers instant credit toward new devices when trading in online

New, 17 comments
iPhone 6S

Apple has updated its GiveBack program, allowing customers to trade in old devices to offset the cost of purchasing a new one even when buying online, as spotted by 9to5Mac.

Previously, the only way to immediately receive a credit to use against new purchases was to visit a physical Apple Store. Using Apple’s trade-in program online required shipping your device and waiting for an Apple gift card or debit card. Now, Apple has updated its website to indicate that a credit for trading in an old device can be used right away when buying a new one online.

Now customers will see the GiveBack prompt on the “buy” page for all products. If the online form is used, only a couple of questions and a serial number are required in order to complete your trade-in estimate. The newest devices accepted for Apple’s GiveBack program are the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
