Yesterday during the launch of the new Galaxy Note8, Samsung indicated that there would be a trade-in program for eligible devices if you bought the phone from them directly. That program has gone live now and it is pretty extensive.
The discount for your trade-in varies depending on the model you are giving up to get in the new Note8. Here is the breakdown:
- $200 Off: Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+
- $200 Off: iPhone SE, iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus
- $300 Off: Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge
- $300 Off: Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, LG G4, LG G5, LG G6, LG V20
That’s a fairly comprehensive list and clearly Samsung is aiming to convert iPhone users over to the Note with these discounts on the older iPhone devices.
In order to quality, your trade-in phone has to be in good working order, can be charged, isn’t blacklisted, no cracked or damaged screen and have normal wear & tear. If it doesn’t meet this criteria, Samsung will charge you the trade-in value. Also, the phone has to be sent into the company within 15 days of receiving your Galaxy Note8.
On the Samsung site, the unlocked variant of the Note8 is listed at $929.99.
