Samsung is giving you more cash toward the Galaxy Note 10 when you trade-in certain phones
Trying to generate some sales momentum going into the holiday shopping season, Samsung has increased the amount of credit it is giving those who trade-in certain phones in order to get a discount on its latest flagship handsets. Android Police notes that if you have a Galaxy S8 in working condition and trade it in, Samsung will now credit you $350 toward the purchase of the Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy Note 10+. Previously Samsung was willing to credit Galaxy S8 owners $110 if they traded in the phone toward the purchase of either model.

With the Galaxy S8 trade-in, the price of the 256GB Galaxy Note 10 drops 37% to $599.99 from $949.99. That works out to 24 monthly payments of $25, down from $39.58. Trade-in a Galaxy S8 and the 256GB Galaxy Note 10+ is reduced in price by 32% to $649.99 from $1,099.99. That works out to 24 monthly payments of $27.08, down from $45.83. The phone that is being traded in must turn on, and the screen and cameras must be free of any cracks. Before turning it over to Samsung, the device must have all data wiped.

According to Samsung, the company has hiked the trade-in value of a few phones:

Lol, they are literally having to give people more money to buy their top shelf products. Ouch. Guess it helps mitigate some of the sharp depreciation at least.

To him, only Samsung does it. Hell, people will pay over msrp for an iPhone according to to his logic.

People do pay over MSRP for iPhones in some regions. What is hilarious here is how Samsung has to constantly give more back just to get these things off the shelves.

The best part is how the iPhone XS Max is worth more to Samsung than the Galaxy Note9, both of which are from last year but have a $150 difference, goes to show how much Samsung really value their products vs iPhone.

Nope, been with Samsung since Note2, never felt the need to shift. Tried iphone and pixel for a short time but had to come back. I use Spen, secure folder, Samsung Pay, Edge panel, App pair (multi tasking), Wireless charging (and now power share) and none of these exist on others.

Lol, Secure Folder exists on many phones, Huawei even allow multiple users and app locking. Power Share first came on the Mate 20 Pro in 2018, so again someone else has it. Most OEMs have wireless charging, heck the Mate 30 Pro does 27W wireless charging. Samsung Pay, Edge Panel and SPEN I’ll give you, but Samsung Pay is superseded by Google Pat in some places and Apple Pay in Apple devices. That cuts it down to just Edge Panel and SPen, nobody is exactly shouting for those otherwise Samsung would not have to create more enticing offers to get people to buy their devices.

Secure folder doesn't exist on all devices. What you are talking is multiple user login from accounts which is different from secure folder. Huawei is not that popular in US and so I am not sure how it is implemented on it but secure folder and power share are not there on any other popular brands in US. Samsung pay literally works with any terminal unlike GPay and apple pay which needs terminals that support NFC.

S10, S10E and Note9 :’D Desperation is real! Last year’s iPhone XS Max is worth more to Samsung than last years Note9, LOL!

So Samsung will give $600 for a iPhone XS Max from 2018 and $600 for a Samsung Galaxy S10+ from 2019 :’D Samsung value the Note9 less than the XS Max.

That's an incentive to switch eco system. That's business logic you need to understand and its not that Samsung gives value to Apple more than its own devices. Its just that the risk they are taking to bring the users out of different eco system.

Lol, it’s a TERRIBLE business logic because it devalues their own products. This is the very reason why Samsung’s depreciate so fast. Apple don’t even care for taking in Samsung devices, in fact if you took a Note10+ that is sealed to Apple you’d probably get a iPhone XR 64GB at best, lol. Goes to show who is more desperate for business m, Samsung’s begin to look like throwaway toys due to this.

yes, may be at this time Samsung is desperate since Apple is sort of at the helm. Remember when apple used to do those crazy ads against microsoft and microsoft never cared about them? Things change with time, and company's take risk to do all that possible stuff to gain customers trust. And by the way you don't have to "lol" in every response of yours.

This is one of the reason I STOPED buying new Samsung's,after the S7. Samsung and its top sellers on Ebay etc have deliberately helped depreciate the prices of there in the name of trade. People think this trade in a are good deal,Nope,you are still paying the new price masked as a trade in.
