Want To Exchange Your Old Smartphone For A New One Plus? Now You Can!by Rajshree Faria December 3, 2015
Most of us look forward to upgrading our smartphones to the latest available one, but may be hesitant since we don’t know what to do with our old one. What if we tell you that you could not only get one of the best smartphones of our time but also get rid of your old one for a sweet deal? Thanks to the partnership between OnePlus and well-known refurbishing website ReGlobe, you can exchange your old smartphone for a brand new OnePlus Smartphone! Read on to know more.
Currently, the initiate offers you two options: ‘Buy First and Sell Later’, or ‘Sell First and Buy Next’, on the three OnePlus smartphones which are OnePlus One priced at Rs.19,999 for the 64GB variant, OnePlus 2 priced at Rs.24,999 for the 64GB variant, and OnePlus X priced at Rs.16,999 for the Onyx version.
If you opt for the former offer, the customer receives the invite for their chosen product first, and the pickup for their old smartphone is scheduled for later. Once the customer buys the product, ReGlobe will initiate the procedure for the buyback. And how does this cashback take place? The customer will get an Amazon gift coupon of the resale value within 3-5 days.
If you choose the second option, you can sell your old smartphone to ReGlobe first, and get the buyback value. Once this transaction between ReGlobe and the customer is done, ReGlobe will share an OnePlus invite along with an Amazon Gift Coupon of the same value as the older smartphone.
Sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it? Well, let’s make it better, shall we? If ReGlobe pegs the value of your old smartphone at more than Rs.5,000, you get the B2X Service pack insurance worth Rs.999 for your OnePlus Two, while those buying the OnePlus X will receive the B2X OnGuard Plus pack which is valued at Rs.699. Oh, but… you can avail this free insurance only if you opt for the Amazon Discount Coupon and not request for payment in cash.
ReGlobe is a popular End-of-Life product management portal which specializes in smartphone evaluation. Although the website has a large number of brands and models listed, if you don’t find your old smartphone listed, then hard luck, you aren’t eligible for the buyback/exchange program. Also, the value of your old smartphone will depend on various factors like the wear and tear of the phone, whether it has all the original accessories or not, whether it has a broken screen or not, etc., all of which can be found on the website when you start with the buyback procedure.
A word of limitation here: the offer is valid in only a few select cities in India like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Lucknow, and Jaipur.
Go ahead and take part in this initiative, as you not only get a Smart Smartphone but also a little bit of “I helped to recycle/reuse a product!” to boast about! Do hurry, as this offer will last until the clock strikes midnight on 31st December!
