Samsung offers instant $300 discount on any Galaxy S10 phone with qualified trade
Samsung's $550 trade-in deal for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ is over. But that doesn't mean that Samsung doesn't have a deal for you. If you have a qualified trade to give Samsung, you can get $300 instantly removed from the price of one of the three phones in the Galaxy S10 lineup. Some of the phones that can earn you a $300 discount on these models include the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 8, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus. Other models can get you $200 off in a trade.

Here's how this works. Go to Samsung's website and select the Galaxy 10 model you want. Choose the carrier, storage size, and color you want. You then will have an option to click on a box that says "Trade-in and save up to $300." Select the manufacturer of your trade and then click on the model. You will then be asked if your device turns on and if there are any cracks on the display. If you say "yes" to both, you must agree to factory reset your trade before you send it in. If you agree to this condition, the price of the Galaxy S10 model you are buying will drop by $300. You then ship your trade to Samsung within 15 days from the date that your new phone arrives. If your trade comes in as promised to Samsung, there is nothing more to do. On the other hand, if you fudged a bit on the model and condition of the phone you trade in, Sammy will charge you an additional $300.

Last week, we told you that quite a number of consumers who have sent in trades to Samsung have not been given the correct credit for the phone they sent in even with photographic proof. One person, who sent in a Galaxy Note 9 in order to receive $550 in credit toward a Galaxy S10 model, was told by Samsung that they were being charged $550; it seems that Samsung said that the device it received from this customer was a Galaxy S7. You might want to document everything you do when packing your phone up by taking pictures or video.

Give me $300 off a S10 5g preorder then we'll talk. Larger screen, next gen ram, 5g. I'll wait.

i traded in my s9 for an s10 through samsung.. and the third party company they used to process my trade in screwed me over and tried to charge me 550.00 instead of 350.00 BUYERS BEWARE... SAVE YOURSELF A HEADACHE AND DO NOT TRADE IN YOUR PHONE VIA SAMSUNG.. do it through a carrier or retail store... TRUST ME!

I would actually recommend their website. Verizon would have given me substantially less. Traded in my S9+ day one and got $550 off S10+ directly thru Samsung's website. It's unfortunate your trade in ended up that way. I also traded in my S8 for said S9+ and got the value quoted.

After having a phone get "lost" in the mail by T-Mobile but still having to pay almost $400, I would tell anyone NEVER do a trade-in deal through the mail. Didn't realize till after i got screwed that the employees at the warehouse in Pennsylvania has a history of "losing" phones. Always trade-in in person or not at all. Don't care how good the deal is. Hear complaints about Samsung trade-ins getting messed up every year.

Personally I think it's best to sell your used phones on websites like offerup and co. That way you get better offers and zero stories about lost device
