BILLERICA, Mass., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NextWorth Solutions, a leader in consumer electronics trade-in programs, today announces a new trade-in program agreement with the Wireless Zone® system, the largest Verizon Wireless franchise in the country. After a successful pilot program, NextWorth Solutions is managing the trade-in program in over 375 Wireless Zone® stores.
The Wireless Zone® trade-in program allows customers to trade in their used consumer electronic devices and receive a Wireless Zone® gift card which can be used towards a new device, accessories or any other purchase at a Wireless Zone® store. Consumers can conveniently trade in their iPhones, iPads, Smartphones, eReaders/tablets, and iPods through the program.
"We are thrilled to be powering a trade-in program for the largest Verizon Wireless franchise in the United States," said Jeff Trachsel, CMO of NextWorth. "Trade-in is becoming an increasingly important way for retailers and carriers to enable customers to upgrade faster and for less, and we look forward to helping the Wireless Zone® system drive its business forward."
To help launch the program, NextWorth will be donating $2.00 for every trade-in to the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving, Inc. The Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® is a collaborative giving program that supports organizations dedicated to improving the communities in which Wireless Zone® stores operate and their owners and employees live. The special promotion will run through the months of July and August.
"NextWorth not only brings expertise in the trade-in business, but also serves as a comprehensive solutions provider for our stores," says Susan Suhr, President & Director of the foundation and Chief Administrative Officer of Automotive Technologies, Inc., parent company of the Wireless Zone® brand.
"Kicking the trade-in program off with a promotion that will raise substantial funds for the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® highlights how powerful a tool trade-in can be for Wireless Zone® stores, our customers and our communities."
