Sprint Buys Back Phones Online

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Sprint Nextel [NYSE: S] is the first nationwide wireless carrier in America to integrate its buyback program into the online retail experience. In addition to in-store and mail-in options, Sprint now automatically guides online users through the process of reselling their old phones in exchange for a credit toward the purchase of a new one. Sprint Buyback – which last week was again named the best buyback program in the wireless industry by Compass Intelligence1 – has already diverted millions of phones from landfills.

“Sprint Buyback has been enormously successful to date,” said Chad Lander, Sprint director-Phone Recycling Programs. “Not only does it save our customers up to $300 at a time; it’s helped us achieve an impressive collection rate of 39 percent – that’s almost halfway to our goal of a 90 percent collection rate by 2017. The new online option is part of our expanding Buyback ecosystem, which helps raise customer awareness and give even more choices and flexibility.”
