    Is this for real?

    ur mobile carrier

    Verizon*announced Tuesday it will offer a*free 16GB iPhone 6*in exchange for your old iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5S or 5C in good condition — as long as you re-up your contract for another two years. That's a $199 value.

    Sprint*will offer*up to $300*for eligible devices. You can also get unlimited data, talk and text for $50 per month, or get a free iPhone 6 or 6 Plus up front and*lease it "for life"*for $20 per month.

    T-Mobile*will*match any competitor's trade-in value*and add $50 on top of that.

    AT&T*hasn't announced specific trade-in deals or pricing yet, but it has set up a landing page*here.

    2. Amazon

    Amazon's*Electronics Trade-in program*is one of your best bets to earn some cash for your old iPhone. For example, a 16GB iPhone 5S could get you between $300 and $400.

    3. Best Buy

    Between Friday, Sept. 19 and Saturday, Sept. 27, you can trade in your working iPhone 5S atBest Buy*for $300 and your 4S for $125. Your iPhone 5 will get you "standard trade-in value" — up to $300 for a 16GB model in good condition.

    4. Target

    Target*announced*its trade-in program this week, too, allowing customers to get deals before Sept. 18 (and guaranteed before Oct. 18). Trade in your old phone either in-store oronline.

    You can get up to $200 for the iPhone 5S, $100 for the 5 or 5C, $75 for the 4S and $50 for the iPhone 4.

    5. RadioShack

    RadioShack's*Trade & Save Program*lets you trade in an older iPhone model in working condition for a minimum of $100 and up to $300, depending on the model.

    6. Gazelle and Glyde

    For 16GB models,*Gazelle*is offering up to $285 for the iPhone 5S, $165 for the iPhone 5C, $170 for the iPhone 5 and $65 for the iPhone 4S. You can get quotes for your specific model and carrier*here.

    A similar service is Glyde, which has a*handy pricing tool*for you to plan your upgrade. According to a Glyde spokesperson, the site offers up to $356 for the iPhone 5S, up to $282 for the iPhone 5C, up to $259 for the iPhone 5, up to $174 for the iPhone 4S and up to $65 for the iPhone 4.

    7. Apple

    Apple's own*trade-in program*offers a gift card in exchange for your old device. You can bring your old iPhone to an Apple retail store near you, and an employee will determine its value.

    While this is a quick and safe way to trade in your old iPhone, don't expect the best deal.

    8. eBay

    According to an eBay spokesperson, average selling prices for a 32GB iPhone 5S were $510 during the week of Sept. 1 (as of this writing, the eBay website says the same phone is trending at $461).

    A 16GB iPhone 5C can earn you up to an estimated $239, a 16GB iPhone 5 can get up to $232 and a 16GB iPhone 4S can get you up to $134.

    If you're worried no one will bid on your phone, eBay's looking to give you peace of mind by offering a $100 coupon if it doesn't sell by Oct. 24. You can find more details and estimates for your specific iPhone model*here.

    9. Walmart

    Walmart offers gift cards in exchange for traded-in devices. Using a working Verizon model as a benchmark to give you an idea of what you can get, Walmart currently offers:

    $275 for a 16GB iPhone 5S

    $128.25 for a 16GB iPhone 5C

    $166.25 for a 16GB iPhone 5
