HTC has had a trade-in program available for those purchasing the One smartphone. The program was originally unveiled back in mid-February and has since been given a few extensions. And well, it looks like HTC has once again extended the deadline. This latest brings the purchase date into the middle of May and the mail-in date up into the middle of June.
Specifically, the purchase date has been extended to May 19, 2013 and the mail-in date has been extended to June 19, 2013. In order to take advantage of this offer, those considering the purchase of a One will need to pre-register on the HTC website. Once pre-registered you will get a promo code along with some other details by email.
The long and short here, you basically buy the handset before May 19 and then head to www.htctradeup.com/htcone and enter that promo code. From here you then need to mail your old smartphone to HTC before June 19. The $100 credit will come back in the form of a Visa gift card, which really just means that you will still need to shell out the full $199.99 on the day of purchase.
Otherwise, while HTC has the trade-in program available for the One, those who are considering a purchase with AT&T may want to check out their recently announced offer before committing. The AT&T trade-in program is also offering a $100, however it is available for any of the available AT&T smartphones. You know, just in case you decide to go with a GALAXY S 4 or LG Optimus G Pro.[via phoneArena]
