After being leaked a couple of days ago along with a slew of other leaks, the Google trade-in program for the Google Pixel is now live at the Google Store. The program allows you to trade in previous Google Nexus phones, LG, Samsung, and iPhones to get a credit towards the purchase of a new Google Pixel or Pixel XL.
With the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL only a few weeks away, it is a little surprising to see Google open this program up now. The assumption was that it would start when the next generation phones were announced.
As for the value that you get, it largely depends on how new your phone is and its condition. For example, if I wanted to trade in my Nexus 6P with 64GB of storage, I would get back $155 since it is in working condition and doesn’t have a broken screen. If I trade in my wife’s iPhone SE 128GB, that would get me $87.
