Stretch Your Dollar With A $5 Gift To U.S. Troops




With Veterans Day coming up, now's an important time to say "thank you" to military personnel and veterans. Through a charitable program just announced between Operation Gratitude  and SmartphoneTradein.com  anyone with an old cell phone can do just that.

Whether it's a Blackberry, iPhone, Samsung, or other brand, for every cell phone received for trade-in by SmartphoneTradeIn.com, the company will donate an additional $5 to Operation Gratitude, which will be used to send care packages to U.S. military personnel, their families, and veterans.

This is a great win-win for consumers and Operation Gratitude. Consumers can get cash for their old cell phones to buy new ones or boost their holiday spending budgets, and Operation Gratitude gets additional funding for its programs. For instance, an iPhone 4S 64GB in regular condition is currently listed at a $200 trade-in value at SmartphoneTradein.com. So that's $200 in the consumer's pocket, and an additional $5 to help the troops through Operation Gratitude.

The program is an extension of Operation Gratitude's eight year partnership with the founders of SmartphoneTradeIn.com. Since 2006, Operation Gratitude has raised $150,000 through its cell phone collection and recycling program.
