Apple itself and authorized resellers are competiting for your iPhone 6 purchase next week. This battle has spurred some retailers to sweeten the pot with trade-in offers. We’ve already seen Verizon Wireless up the ante with its offer that allows iPhone 4 owners to trade up to an iPhone 6 for free.

You can place a preorder at Radio Shack stores beginning Friday September 12th. Just like many other retailers, Radio Shack will buy-back your old iPhones. You can expect to get between $100 and $300 for a working iPhone 5. As always, we recommend consulting our iPhone 6 trade-in guide before making any purchase decisions to be sure you’re getting the best value for your old iPhone.
