Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is offering new Windows Lumia1020 or Lumia 1520 in exchange of iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and Galaxy S2. Earlier this week, the software giant, offered its customers a deal of buying their tablet and smartphones for up to $250. At that time, there were a lot of speculations that the company would make it more attractive by launching some device specific deals.
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has made available this deal until March 2, 2014 or “while supplies last.” There are also some important cautions attached with the offer.

To get maximum exchange benefit, a user needs to purchase “Nokia Lumia 1020 or Nokia Lumia 1520 with a qualifying new or renewal mobile contract or upgrade (2 years) at the same time. Any appraised value will be determined at trade-in and provided as store credit, subject to Microsoft’s discretion and approval. All trade-ins are final,” reads the offer.
The deal is not valid on the prior orders or purchases, and also cannot be transferred or otherwise redeemed for cash or gift cards. “Not combinable with other offers. Discount does not include taxes, shipping or other fees. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Microsoft reserves the right to modify or discontinue offers at any time.”
