Sprint Buyback Program

Program Overview

The Sprint Buyback Program is a free service which offers new and existing Sprint subscribers account credit for hundreds of eligible wireless devices—no matter what carrier they’re from.

Background
We recognized that millions of mobile devices were ending up in landfills or were otherwise wasted in “junk” drawers. So, we developed the Sprint Buyback Program as a way to repurpose or recycle these unwanted devices while providing an incentive to our customers for sending them in.

Join In
It’s easy to participate. In just a few minutes, you can:

  1. Get an instant online quote for your device(s).
  2. Print your prepaid shipping label (that’s right…we take care of the postage!) and attach it to your package.
  3. Send us your device(s) via an approved shipping provider.

Once we receive your device(s) and process it, we apply the credit to your account within 3 billing cycles. It’s that easy!

Incentive Values
We strive to offer the best possible incentives while maintaining a simple, easy-to-understand program with up-front device values and program rules. Our device values are based on current need—supply and demand.

We repurpose or recycle all of the devices that are sent back to the Sprint Buyback Program. Although not all devices have an incentive value, they can still be submitted to the Sprint Buyback Program in an effort to keep electronic waste out of our landfills, which helps reduce toxins in the waste stream.

Additionally, you have the option to recycle your device, regardless of the value, through Sprint Project ConnectSM which helps fund and promote free Internet safety resources for kids.

Recycling Standards
The Sprint Buyback Program uses electronics recycling vendors that are certified to industry leading used electronic management certifications, ensuring the most environmentally conscious methods of electronic waste disposal possible.
