Apple takes iPhone and iPad trade-in program to Australia with credit up to A$250

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Apple on Monday announced an expansion of its iPhone and iPad trade-in program to cover customers in Australia, who can now bring older iPhones and iPads to receive up to A$250 to put toward a new device purchase.




In a statement provided to MSN affiliate ninemsn, Apple officially announced Australian availability of its in-store iOS device trade-in program, which will offer customers in the country up to A$250 (about $234) for iPhone and A$215 (about $202) for iPad trade-ins.

Under the program's terms, late model iOS devices like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPad Air, as well as first-generation products, are not eligible for credit. Apple notes that customers can still bring in older devices for free-of-charge recycling.

Apple first debuted its trade-in program in the U.S. last August, offering at most $280 per device to put toward the purchase of a new iPhone or iPad.

The initiative was later extended to the UK, Canada, Italy, France and Germany under the Reuse and Recycling banner.

Aah.. good old corporate Australia. Australians get $16.88 minimum wage and US gets $7.25.

Gotta raise prices on products to pay more than double the minimum wage...

 

and don't forget VAT is included in the price Aussies pay. US prices are without taxes, which in many places includes state, city, county and municipality taxes.

AAP report at 10:14 AM,  National Nine News report at about the same time.  Picked up in The Australian digital addition at 12:19 PM.  Yet now 4:42 PM and none on Apple sales lines knows anything about it !!'

 

Can someone at Apple in Australia get their sh%t together or otherwise put a rocket up Australian Associated Press's ar#e!

 

Respectfully !!

Ha, you sound like a kiwi.

 

When the Australian dollar was stronger than the US dollar last year, the effective price of Apple devices was actually lower in Oz.

Now I'm wondering where Apple unloads these iPhone trade ins.

They could be a real deal for my iPhone 4 upgrade.
