After expanding to France last week, Apple's iPhone trade-in program is now available in Apple retail stores throughout Canada as noticed by 9to5Mac. Though not publicly announced, the launch was confirmed on Canadian Apple Store retail pages and in the Apple Store app.

iphone-recycle-canada
The in-store recycling program allows customers to trade-in an older iPhone model and immediately receive a gift card up to $275 towards the purchase of a new iPhone. The program encourages customers to responsibly recycle their old iPhones instead of throwing them away. SellCell estimates customers are storing and not recycling approximately $13.4 billion in unused iPhones.

This in-store iPhone recycling program debuted in the U.S. last summer and was expanded to include the UK a few months later. Apple also offers a mail-in recycling program that requires customers to send in their iPhone before receiving a credit. Customers may receive more money for their iPhone via the mail-in program, but they lose the convenience of a no-hassle credit that's immediately available to spend on a new phone.

Question: I can bring any old iPhone in any condition and get $275? Can I apply this towards a contract phone? I.e. I bring in an unusable iPhone 3G and apply the 275 towards an iPhone 5s on contract that is 299?

Haha of course not, you'll get like 0$ for a 3G, yes, I do mean nothing at all.

It says "up to", so, no. What you get will depend on the model of the iPhone as well as it's condition, I'm sure.

If you bring in an unusable iPhone 3G, I'm sure they'll gladly recycle it for you, then look at you uncomfortably until you leave.

While it's nice that they offer this program it is a horrible deal and you will always easily get an additional $100 or more from kijiji.

The 275 is probably for a 64GB of the latest model in mint condition.
