OnePlus has followed the suit of a majority of smartphone manufacturers in India by introducing a new buyback scheme which will help buyers to switch to OnePlus devices by trading in their current smartphones. The offer will be facilitated by ReGlobe, a company synonymous with refurbished devices and backed by Amazon India. This offer lets you buy the OnePlus One, OnePlus 2 and the recently launched OnePlus X on exchange.
To check if your current device is covered in the buyback scheme, all you need to do is visit this page and register yourself. The good part is that you are supposed to get an instantaneous best price quote on your phone, although this is something that can vary on actual inspection. ReGlobe will offer two modes of purchases to the buyer, Buy First Sell Later Option and Sell First Buy Next Option.
Buy First Sell Later Option – this way, ReGlobe customer service will share the invite code for the OnePlus smartphone you want to buy (Surprising! Considering the OnePlus invites were considered sacred not long time ago). ReGlobe will also schedule a pick up for a particular date, post which it will approve the sale of the older device and the buyer will receive the invite confirmation. The deal is further sweetened by the free insurance on the OnePlus 2 and the OnePlus X, this insurance offer however comes with a catch, the valuation of your old device must be above Rs 5000 to be eligible for this offer.
Sell First Buy Next – here, first you need to complete the formalities to sell your device post which customer will receive the invite for the device of their choice. In both the buying options, customer will be receiving a gift coupon matching the buyback price of their old device. The offer has already been started and will be available till December 31st, 2015.
If rumors in the market are to be believed, OnePlus seems to be having a tough time pushing the sales with several OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X invites floating this time around unlike the last time when folks literally sold the invites to make a quick buck. That being said, the quotes are realistic, unlike the Apple iPhone buyback schemes which manages to quote bottom rock bottom rates for your old device.
