FORT WORTH, Texas, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Just three days remain to participate in America's Mobile Makeover Month at RadioShack (NYSE: RSH), a leading national retailer of innovative technology products, services and accessories. As of earlier this week, consumers had already saved more than $3 million by trading in used cell phones and other gadgets since April 1.

This special promotion, which ends on April 28, guarantees customers at least $30 or as much as $300 in immediate store credit when they trade in a working mobile phone and activate a new one. If the appraisal beats these minimum values, consumers receive immediate store credit for the higher amount toward their purchase instead. Other special trade-in deals appear in this week's circular available online.

"We're thrilled consumers have already saved themselves more than $3 million by turning their unwanted tech into treasure during America's Mobile Makeover Month at RadioShack," said Gene M. Dinkens, senior vice president of store operations for RadioShack Corp. "Don't miss out on these great trade-in offers. Do a final sweep for unused mobile phones and other gadgets around the house, then visit a participating store to take advantage of these great trade-in offers before they are gone." 

Complete the trade-in at a participating RadioShack location to take advantage of the special minimum trade-in value on working mobile phones or receive immediate store credit on any trade. Trade-ins may also be completed by mail. Visit to receive a free shipping label. A RadioShack gift card for the trade-in value will be mailed after the product is received.

While the special trade-in deals expire at closing time Saturday, RadioShack's hassle-free Trade & Save program is available every day. The program accepts many types of retired technology, from mobile phones to cameras, GPS and MP3 players. With no enrollment or receipt required, RadioShack will take eligible electronic product trade-ins no matter where they were purchased.
