    Verizon will give me a $300 credit on my 5s 32GB today. What might it be worth in a year?

    In other words, what am I giving up financially if I don't take the "free 6" deal?

    I read a thread where a guy was offered $200 (Verizon) for his 4s, so maybe $250 for a 5s next year would be my guess

    If they repeat this year's deal it will be worth $200 but there's no guarantee. As it will be out of contract I'd be able to sell it independently if there isn't an upgrade deal.

    If you're right, it means that it will "cost" me $50 to keep it for a year. I can live with that and wait for a 6s or maybe even a 7. I do love my current phone.

    I'd say estimate up to $100 loss if you keep it for a year.

    Want to estimate the value of this year's one-year-old device next year? Look at today's value of a two-year-old device.

    What are they offering for an iphone 5 instead of a 5s?
