Samsung’s pre-order period for the Galaxy Note 20 lineup is coming to an end soon (tonight at midnight Eastern), and typically, that’s one of the best times to buy a new Galaxy phone. Unlike devices from other brands that typically see price decreases a couple of months after launch, Samsung tends to put its best pricing foot forward, offering killer trade-in deals, as well as instant credit towards the purchase of other Samsung devices.
For the Galaxy Note 20 lineup, trade-in values are as high as $650 for good devices, plus up to $400 for devices with cracked screens. Obviously, the value of your trade-in may vary greatly, but according to Samsung’s site, the most you’ll get for a trade-in following the pre-order period is $500. This is why we always recommend going down the pre-order/trade-in route if you can for Galaxy devices.
As for that instant credit, Samsung is offering up to $200 in online store credit, meaning you can snag a pair of Galaxy Buds for totally free should you choose that. Samsung has a ton of accessories, including smartwatches and cases, so it’ll be up to you to decide on what to get.
