Do you have an old iPhone laying around collecting dust? Really want the iPhone 5? Best Buy has a deal for you, according to CNET. Tomorrow, June 1, the retailer is giving customers a $150 credit on a working iPhone 4/4S. This credit must be used to purchase an iPhone 5. To qualify, customers must be eligible for a phone update, and activate an iPhone 5 on a two-year contract with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. This deal won’t be available online. Best Buy recently dropped the price on the iPhone 5 by $50. This means that the 16GB model is free using the credit, while the 32GB model is $99. The credit drops the price of the 64GB model to $199. These price drops are great for those looking for a new iPhone. Of course, they also suggest that Best Buy is clearing inventory ahead of the launch of Apple’s seventh-generation iPhone. The latest rumors suggest that Apple won’t release new iPhones until August or September. At that time, Cupertino may announce the so-called “iPhone 5S” as well as a budget phone.
