Gazelle Extends Price Lock Guarantee

With Prices Expected to Drop, Consumers Can Lock In Today's Offer Price, Then Send In After They Have the New iPhone in Hand

San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 20, 2012) - Gazelle, the nation's leading high-end consumer electronics trade-in site, today announced the extension of its industry leading 30-day price lock program to help consumers take full advantage of the anticipated new iPhone launch. Customers who elect to trade-in their iPhone to Gazelle between today and August 31 will now have until October 1 to send in their phone. This allows them to get pre-launch values for their used iPhone while continuing to use their phone until the new one is available, widely rumored to happen on September 21.

"The majority of consumers aren't comfortable being without a phone for any amount of time," said Sarah Welch, chief marketing officer for Gazelle. "But the value of used devices tends to be significantly higher before a new iPhone launches. This promotion allows consumers to lock in today's value and keep their current phone until they have the new one in hand."

To take advantage of the extended price lock, simply go to, select "iPhone," tell us what model and carrier you have, and the condition of your phone. We'll quote you a price and send you shipping materials for free. If we get your old iPhone by October 1, we'll send you cash. Consumers are also encouraged to pre-order their new iPhone to be sure they can take advantage of this offer, since it can be hard to get your hands on the new iPhone in the early days of a launch. Consumers are under no obligation to send in their phone, so if predictions of the new iPhone launch date turn out to be wrong, there's no risk to the consumer.
