WINNIPEG, April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - MTS today introduced My Trade-In, a new
program that lets customers swap their used devices for an in-store
credit at any MTS Connect store location. MTS representatives will
confirm the trade-in value of any device brought into the store and
issue a credit on the spot. Customers can then use these valuable
in-store credits to offset the cost of upgrading to the latest device
or switching their service to MTS.
"The MTS My Trade-In program means old handsets - even those that have
been put through the wringer - don't have to be left sitting in a
drawer when it's time to upgrade," said Paul Norris, MTS Vice-President
of Consumer Brand and Marketing. "My Trade-In gives these devices new
life and keeps them out of landfills."
The My Trade-In program demonstrates MTS's commitment to environmental
responsibility by decreasing electronic waste. After being reset to
their factory settings, traded-in devices will be recycled and resold
in other markets, or disassembled and sold for parts.
MTS is offering the My Trade-In program in partnership with Phobio, an
international company that facilitates wireless retailer trade-in
programs. Certain terms and conditions apply. For more information
about the MTS My Trade-In program, including the current estimated
trade-in value of wireless devices, please visit mts.ca/mytradein.
