If Samsung really wants to keep hacking $400 off the price of their phones with select trade-ins, we’ll have to keep telling you about it. And that’s what happened starting this morning – the $400-off with instant trade credit deal is back for the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8, although this time, it’s even better.
Samsung has not only raised the trade-in limit to $400 (from $300) again for the first time since Black Friday, they are also including new phones that’ll get you up to $400 off. You’ve still got trade options including the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and Pixel and Pixel XL, but you can now trade-in a LG V20, Galaxy S7 Active, Galaxy Note 5, or iPhone 8/8 Plus and get $400 off as well.
With $400 off, we’re talking a Galaxy S8 for $325, Galaxy S8+ for $425, or the Galaxy Note 8 for $550. Those are the unlocked model prices, anyway, so the carrier variants they sell could differ. Still, those prices are nuts!
Of course, if you don’t have one of those phones I just mentioned to trade, Samsung will take others and give you $300, $200, and $150 off. You can see the full list here.
How does this work? I’ll grab the instructions we previously wrote up and include them below because I think they cover it well.
- Head to Samsung’s site to pick out the Galaxy S8, S8+ or Note 8 model you want.
- Choose a carrier model or the unlocked version and then the color.
- You’ll then find a trade-in device page that lists out acceptable devices.
- Click on the device grouping for the device you have.
- Decide on whether or not you want their Premium Care.
- Decide on discounted accessories.
- Then begin the checkout process for your pre-order.
- You should see the instant discount in cart for your trade-in.
Why is this the best deal? The beauty of these deals from Samsung is the instant discount. While others offer trade-in programs, most make you pay the full price for your new phone upfront before asking you to send in your old phone that can be assessed and then credit given. We’re talking about a multi-week process that leaves you without cash. Should you choose Samsung’s instant trade-in offer, they trust that you have the phone to trade-in that you say you do and just give you the money off upfront. You then send in your phone after you get your new Galaxy and they’ll assess it and let you know that all is good. It’s a pretty great process.
I’d imagine the deal is good for a limited time. If you had an S8, S8+, or Note 8 in your sights, now would be the time.
