In case you have not heard, Globe will be holding the "Great Gadget Sale" tomorrow at Glorietta 5. From the details, they'll allow you to trade-in your old phone to get as much as 90% discount on their phone offers.
My experience with these trade-in marketing stint is really not good as the company will hire a third-party company to appraise the gadget you have. This third-party appraiser will offer a lower price of your current gadget. Here's an example : You want to trade-in your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for an LG G2. LG G2 costs P27,990 for Globe Prepaid. Samsung Galaxy Note 2's market price is still at P25,000. The third-party appraiser will only offer you P12,000 for your Galaxy Note 2.
Let's see tomorrow if this will happen at the Great Gadget Sale. Let me quote what's on their website for easier reference:
