Samsung really wants you to buy a Galaxy S10, offers better than ever trade-in discounts
Samsung has been offering good trade-in values for Galaxy S10 purchases for many months now, but never at the level that it does now. If you own an older Samsung flagship, the best way to upgrade is through the company's trade-in program, which offers customers the instant value of their trade as a discount when they purchase one of the new Galaxy S10 models.

Starting this week, Samsung is offering bigger trade-in discounts for the Galaxy S9/S9+, Galaxy S8/S8+, and Galaxy S8 Active, Droid-life reports. For example, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now worth $400 towards the purchase of a new Galaxy S10 smartphone from Samsung, $100 more than last week.

More importantly, even those with much older Samsung flagships like the Galaxy S8, S8+, and S8 Active will find the deal tempting since their phones can be traded for no less than $350 for the purchase of a Galaxy S10. Also, if you own a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, you'll receive a $300 discount when you buy a new Galaxy S10 from Samsung.

Of course, Apple fans who want to switch from an iPhone to a Samsung flagship will find the company's trade-in program quite appealing. For the iPhone XS Max, Samsung offers up to $500 off towards the purchase of a Galaxy S10, while iPhone XS and iPhone X will get important trade-in discounts as well - $450 and $400, respectively.

It's worth noting that all the trade-in discounts mentioned above are only available as long as you choose to buy an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10 phone. Trade-in prices remain the same as last week if you purchase a carrier-bounded Galaxy S10.

How is it desperate? Samsung has been doing this for awhile and why would it be funny for someone to trade their old one in for a new one plus get a chunk of money taken off? Especially when most phone companies don't have deals this good.

Yes, the S9 didn't sell well last year, too.

torr310 And I still got a good deal on it. Why would i be worried about what everyone else buys? It doesn't mean that it's better. You can run with a flock of sheep if you want.

Good for consumers and bad for the company. Giving free stuffs and showing more Samsung ads in many articles tells something. Desperate. Appel remember.

Fred3, I am glad you got a good deal. I didn't mean you guys would care how well it sells but I was just saying a fact. No need to feel offended, which I am not intend to piss anyone off.

I’m not concerned with how well it sold, only fanboybots like you are. As long as it sells good enough, to where they don’t discontinue the product is all that matters.

"Better than ever" - no it isn't. Samsung does discounts every year. Last year i got $500 off my Note9 with Note8 trade in. Another click bait from PA to start comments war :)

It’s not just about sales, they’ll take a cut if they can get the device into someone’s hands. What’s more important than sales going forward is MIND SHARE. If a person wouldn’t have bought the device without the valued perks, and it turns out they like it once they use it, they’re more likely to stay with Samsung and upgrade to another Samsung device down the line.

No wonder they were downgrading and removing features with software, to force us to trade in for a newer version,pay extra while they resell your old phone. No thanks,once the s11 comes out they will down grade its features and camera ets so u buy a s11. Apple doesn't do that. Shame on you sammy

Specially now without the 90 MHz rate is just way too expensive. I do not think they will sell enough to cover r&d... skipping this one again... also... Samsung... do away with the USELESS senseless stupid round edge!!!
