Upgrade to a new Samsung smartphone and get paid for your old device
Get as much as $300 for your old phone

Get as much as $300 for your old phone

Samsung is making you an offer that you could refuse, but might not want to. Purchase a new Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung GALAXY Note or any new Samsung smartphone and the Korean based manufacturer will purchase your old handset. The logistics are rather simple. Get a quote for your old phone by filling out the form on Samsung's Facebook page. The questions asked by Samsung to determine the price they will pay you for your old model are what you might expect. Is the screen cracked, does the device work, etc. If you're happy with the price, go out and make the purchase of your new Samsung smartphone and then send in your old phone to Samsung within 30 days with a copy of the receipt.  After that, you just sit back and receive your check. Any model of smartphone is being accepted.

While the entire process is rather simple, there is a drawback. The money you get for your old handset from Samsung is not as much as you would get arranging a private transaction, but it is a lot easier. Even if you purchased your new Samsung smartphone 30 days ago, along as you have the proof of purchase, you can still take advantage of the deal. Depending on the condition of your old handset, your could receive as much as $300 for it.

why is that crazy?
They give you $100 bux for your old SGS1, and you go buy an SGS3. They keep their customers and they still made money. They still charge the carriers 500-600+ for an SGS3 regardless of what the carrier sells it at. They may not make as much money this way, but anyone that is on the fence between a new SGS3 or an iphone or any other phone might be more likely to go SGS3 with this incentive, so its actually more money, not less since they are getting customers they might not have gotten before.

It's a waste of time. Why not just sell it on ebay or craigslist and get more money?

If you had read the article, it talks about private transactions as opposed to other sources.

private transactions are another source and other sources have ways to make private transactions.

I wonder what will get $300? I looked a month ago and they only offered $150 for a Skyrocket. Maybe the $300 is for an iPhone?

iPhone 4S 64GB in best condition gets you only $250. My Galaxy S 4G would only bring in $70 (I paid $99 for it over a year ago).

You can get more by trading it in at Best Buy Mobile or Radio Shack, less hassle and no wait time.

@KingKurogii, you are correct, they are #1 and they are not desperate.

desperate would be suing everyone around you over rectangles because you lack the capability to compete.
