Wal-Mart Announces Smartphone Trade-In Program

Young Rae Kim |

Wal-Mart Stores Inc.  (WMT) has announced a new program that lets customers trade in their used devices for credit towards a new phone. This trade-in service will be available at 3,600 Walmart stores and Sam’s Club outlets across the U.S. starting September 21. Walmart will reportedly be giving $300 in credit for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 5 and $175 for the Samsung Galaxy S4 handset.

The announcement of the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will have many phone users looking to upgrade their phones. Instead of holding on to an old phone, trading it in can help cut the cost of the latest iphones. 

While Walmart has just announced their trade-in program, companies like Amazon (AMZN) , Best Buy (BBY) , and Apple have already been offering this service to customers.

With so many options, choosing the right place to trade-in an old phone could get confusing. Here is quick comparison of the trade-in values of some of the most popular phones at Amazon, Best Buy, and Apple.
