The good news is that Google is going to give me $350 for my old phone. I priced it on Swappa last week and it looked like it was bringing in about $400. I'm guessing that price will drop now so I was delighted at this trade in offer. I paid $225 in taxes and shipping so my total bill isn't far from what I expected even with the trade in.
The phone gets here week after next and the chromebook arrives for Halloween. So now it's just waiting... waiting... waiting... But, I am excited.
