Amazon offers $500 for your “like new” 64GB iPhone 4S

We know that Apple is getting prepared to announce the iPhone 5, so in case you’re wanting to get rid of the now outdated iPhone 4S, Amazon has got a pretty sweet deal for you: if you’ve been diligent in keeping your iPhone 4S protected in a case with a screen protector, and it’s in “like new” condition, you can get $500 cash.

For the sake of comparison, Gazelle is only offering $329 for the same device, and Apple itself will give you $345 in the form of an Apple gift card.

Now, I’m an Android guy through-and-through, so if I had an extra iPhone 4S laying around, I definitely wouldn’t be using that cash towards a new iPhone. Instead, here’s what I might buy:

You get the idea – $500 can definitely get you a lot of Android awesomeness. Of course, if you insist on sticking with iOS, this should be enough to pay an ETF and get new customer pricing on the iPhone 5 at another carrier of your choosing. It’s also enough to get an iPad.

Are you planning on taking advantage of this offer from Amazon?
