What is the worst part about needing a new cell phone or hunting for a different company? It’s driving to each store to see what they have to offer. We’ve done this many times and it stinks!
I first noticed a Best Buy Mobile store in our mall a few years ago, but didn’t walk in to check it out and see what it was about. Fast forward to about six or seven months ago. Hubby was in our local AT&T store about our bill and the customer service rep told him that Best Buy had a One Day Online Sale on the phone he’s been panting after.
He immediately got on their site to buy it and found out that he could pick it up immediately at Best Buy Mobile. He was thrilled to arrive and find out that he could buy the phone and switch everything over to AT&T without having to deal with AT&T at all!
About a month ago, it was time for me to upgrade. We didn’t even think twice about where that was going to happen at. We headed to Best Buy Mobile where they not only deal with AT&T, but Verizon, T Mobile, and Sprint. It’s a one stop shop. Don’t drive all over town anymore!
Do you know another great thing about Best Buy Mobile? You can Trade In your old cell phone. They will recycle it and give you a Gift Card! YES, money for your phone! Use it to purchase anything at Best Buy ~ up to $200!
I was excited to get my new phone. Not only was it on sale, but I was hoping for a gift card on my Trade In! Unfortunately, I had a small crack in my screen and so they understandable wouldn’t take it. I still got it recycled though!
The whole experience was great and I can’t say that about many cell phone transactions. Best Buy reps work on non-commission so they are really are giving non-biased opinions about all four companies.
I easily purchased a new iphone 5, got all my details transferred for AT&T, and all of my data on my old phone transferred over! I also could have picked up accessories like a car charge, cases, etc for what I needed. I reallllly wanted the ipad, but I’ll save that for another day. 😉
So next time you need a new phone or are shopping a new carrier, I encourage you to check out Best Buy Mobile first. And remember to bring in your old phone to Trade In for a gift card. I’m sure there is a location near you!
