The Best Buy free upgrade

Posted at — Jun 22, 2013

The Best Buy free upgrade is not as free as one would think initially. There are plenty of accessories to purchase in order to move from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5. The base price of your iPhone will be based on your carriers eligibility for an upgrade.  For me that was $150. Once Best Buy gives you $150 in a trade allowance the net cost is zero, however, AT&T charges $36 for the upgrade processing fee and you probably need an extra power cable or two and if you need a new case and even a screen protector it adds up very quickly. Free is not so free. But it is somewhat cheaper. Especially if you are in the market.
