Pre-orders on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 began on Friday on AT&T and Verizon, and T-Mobile and Sprint will join the bandwagon next week – that’s the good news. The bad news is that the phablet is expensive (which was to be expected given its extremely high-end specification) meaning that your budget will suffer a lot. Or not, if you take advantage of Samsung’s new offer. The manufacturer just launched its ‘guaranteed $200 total trade-in’ program if you buy the new Galaxy Note 4, which will help to significantly reduce the handset’s price.
Samsung Guaranteed $200 Trade-in Program
The Samsung’s trade-in program runs through October 16th and, like other similar programs, requires participants to trade in an old phone. Any smartphone can be traded in, not only made by Samsung, as long as it’s working. The whole process is very simple and consists of a few easy steps.
First you have to pre-order the Galaxy Note 4 through a carrier or retailer of your choosing and you should do so before October 16th. Then, you dig up your old phone from under a thick layer of dust (which gathered from not being used for so long) and trade it in at a participating retailer. Unless you want to get rid of a brand new phone in excellent condition, it’s very unlikely that you will get $200 for it. Don’t worry, though. Here’s where Samsung comes in.
Go to Samsung Galaxy Promotions page after October 10th to submit your purchase and trade-in details. You will also have enter your contact information such as name, email address, phone number, mailing address and date of birth, as well as your device’s HEX MEID or IMEI number and Wi-Fi MAC address. The last step is to upload pre-order and trade-in receipts for validation and Samsung will give you the difference between $200 and the amount you received for the phone you traded in.
A tad complicated? Let’s see an example. You trade in your old phone for $150. Then you go to Samsung’s page, enter all the required information and Samsung will send you a check for $50 to make the trade worth $200. It’s one sweet deal, since regardless of your old phone’s value (but no less than $10) you will get $200 for it. It will take a little effort but your budget certainly will be grateful.
