    I went to the best buy trade in website BestBuy.com Trade-in Center - Powered by Dealtree.com and put in a Sprint Palm Pre that has "signs of wear" and it offered me a $70 check or a $107 gift card .... So if you have a pre and don't want to go through selling it on eBay, go through this and use the $107 gift card to buy the Evo

    I thought that you could only use that trade in if you had purchased it from Best Buy. Although that may just be the in store trade in

    Update: I see that the online trade in is for those who have purchased elsewhere or do not possess the receipt

    odd. My pristine Pre with all accesories and manuals was $101 last time I checked.
    It's probably up to the geek squad guys though.

    When I calculated it said $67 for a check and $101 For the gift card, which will illediatly go toward the Evo anyway.
    CL is saturated with Pres. I wouldn't get much more than that.

    I'm going with it.

    Thank you!! I didn't even think of this!! I was going to just do the buy-back with Sprint, but they won't give me as much $$$ as BB.

    Makes sense that they would give either $70 or $107 in gift cards since Best Buy would charge you $107 for something that would cost $70 online anyway.

    the geek squad is suppose to inspect it.
    guess it depends on the person.

    My pre is missing the USB door, the volume button, and there is a hairline crack in the back of the LCD panel at the top. And you really have to mash the power button for it to work. lol

    I may send it in after I get the evo and just see what they will give me. If they laugh at me, oh well, its junk anyway.

    Suhweet. The one good thing that came from owning a Pre (shitty hardware, awesome OS). I'm only getting $72 though. Maybe they'll give me something for my BNIB Samsung A640.

    No. If you do the online one, you can do any item. I got mine at Sprint.

    Okay so I just finally went through to checkout.

    I have to mail them the phone? I can't just bring it in with me to BestBuy?

    Well that sucks. What am I gonna do with $72 in credit when I can only ship the phone AFTER I get my EVO? I was hoping to put this money towards the EVO.

    Yeah but I don't have the receipt? The In-Store option says that its for things purchased from BB. I got my phone from Sprint.

    I mean, I could just mail my Pre to them after I get the EVO and do the check, but then I'm leaving $30+ on the table.
