Samsung Releases Galaxy Note8 Trade-In Program

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.
