    I'm looking for info on best deals for trading in my iPhone 6s and ordering a new iPhone 8+ for Verizon use.

    What's happening with deals and plans and ...?

    Last trade-in I got $300 from VZW. This might prompt me to go with Apple's upgrade program if resale is plummeting to $200.

    VZW now showing iPhone 8 with $300 upgrade option with 24 mo payment plan.

    But it may require signing up for the Unlimted data plan.

    new option added, suggested by The Wirecutter
    https://glyde.com/sell

    Appears to be resale service, where they take a cut off the transaction and hide seller and buyer from each other. Prices closer to going direct sale, but not as risky / scammy as eBay?
