Samsung increases trade-in discounts for multiple phones when you buy the Note 10
Samsung has just improved some of the Galaxy Note 10 trade-ins deals it offered since the pre-orders opened in the United States. Perhaps the South Korean company isn't content with the amount of Note 10 units pre-ordered until now or it's just a temporary deal meant to boost sales for a little bit.

Either way, if you haven't yet opted for one of the many Galaxy Note 10 promotions available in the US, we have another one for you coming directly from Samsung. It appears that the smartphone vendor has increased the trade-in values for Galaxy S9 and other Samsung models. The new trade-in values are only available when you pre-order the Galaxy Note 10 or 10+.

For example, if you have a working Galaxy S9 or S9+ in great condition, you could receive up to $350 towards the purchase of a Galaxy Note 10 or 10+, an increase of $150 and $125, respectively, from the previous trade-in values.

The Galaxy S10 and S10+ are now worth $600, and the same goes for Note 9. For the Galaxy S8, S8+ and S8 Active, you'll be getting up to $250, the same discount you'll receive if you decide to trade in your Galaxy S7, S7 edge or S7 Active.

We don't know how long the new trade-in values spotted by AndroidPolice will be available for those who wish to pre-order the Galaxy Note 10, but we're assuming they will remain live until August 22 since the flagship is expected to hit the store the next day.

Ok think I figured it out... This option is only available if you choose an UNLOCKED version. It's not available if you go with a carrier version.

Choose the Unlocked version. When they send you the Note 10, transfer everything over to the Note 10. Then get your old phone Unlocked. If your phone company won't do it then there are site that does it. I use sites to unlock phones alot. Some will do it for $15-30

Bought my note 9 at launch. Still have not had one issue. I don't think I'm ready to give up the headphone Jack yet.

I'm sorry but I just checked and it's still only 300 for the Note 9 (all the other initial trade-in offers remain the same as well). Considering how this article was posted about 15 mins ago, I'm not sure how the deal is ALREADY off the table, lol. Can the author please provide a link to where they got this info from?

EDIT: This option exists but only for the UNLOCKED version apparently.

These trade in values have been available day 1, on unlocked models of Note 10s. How nobody knew about this til now is confusing to me. Lol

Seriously Dude, how can you write a big headline grabber like this and not check your accuracy? Not what the article claims, but only for unlocked phones, which is not a change in any way. You should correct this.

Bestbuy is offering the same trade in offers and that's where I ordered mines from. Trading in through Samsung is a nightmare ie. Once you send them the trade in they say something wrong with your phone are not the correct phone you sent in and them not giving you the correct credit.

Except... you know... they're not. They're a good $50 less and that's WITH activation. Never understood bestbuys sale of unlocked phones requiring carrier activation for an extra discount. Who does that? If youre going to sell unlocked phones, then sell unlocked phones and be done with it. If you're with tmobile, you have to pay $100 more for an unlocked phone, than everyone else.
