Best Buy has launched yet another iPhone trade-in special, this time only lasting a few days. The program, which lasts from today through this Sunday, allows an iPhone 4S customer to trade-up to an iPhone 5 at a minimum $200 discount and an iPhone 4 for an iPhone 5 at a minimum $100 discount. The money comes in the form of a Best Buy gift card and is exclusively for Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint on-contract iPhone 5 models. Before making any trade-in decisions ahead of Apple’s September 10 iPhone event, you’re going to want to read our extensive article about getting the most money via trade-in programs.
