Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores


Did you know that you can trade-in your old cell phones at Best Buy and get up to $200 back for them?  I had no idea they did this EVERYDAY!  This is such a great way to get a little money back to use towards a new upgraded phone.  Kyle has been begging me for a better phone so I decided to take his phone in and see what I could get for it.  I also finished my 2 year contract on my Samsung tablet so I wanted to see what I could get for it as well since I use my iphone now for pretty much everything I used to do on my tablet.


As I walked up to the customer service desk, a friendly employee welcomed us and I explained that I wanted to see what we could get for our deivices.  She took each unit and looked up in the computer what it was worth.  They would have given me $26 for the tablet but I need to call and cancel the contract but I will be back to trade it in.  Sadly, Kyles phone was not worth anything so he wasn’t able to get the iphone that he has been dreaming of :(


Kyle wanted to check out the phones in the Mobile section of the store which are focused on mobile devices and accessories for the latest smartphones and tablets from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, from all the top brands, along with stylish accessories to suit your lifestyle. The staff is highly trained, yet non-commissioned, so they can help determine the right phone for you, as well as compare plans across the carriers. They can set up and activate your new phone, transfer your contacts and data and set you up with the complimentary Walk Out Working™ program. To find a Best Buy Mobile specialty store, go to

Since I was already in the store, I decided to open my ShopKick app and get 125 kick points and bought a new phone charger since my cat chewed threw mine.

  1. They are awesome with that! A few weeks ago there was a promo that if you traded in your iphone 4/4s you could get the 5 for free ($10 after taxes and such). My bf is the store manager at the one on 50, near the fashion square mall and across from LA Fitness…next to Plato’s closet and Tijuana flats. If you ever need anything, head on in there, his name is Lee and will help you out! :) If you upgrade, let me know and I’ll send you a referral coupon I got when I upgraded, you’ll get a $20 gift card and I will too.
