How To Trade In Your Samsung Phone – Swap It for The Money

by edward

So, with another launch of products coming from Samsung, it might make sense to trade in your old Samsung phone for a new one. Trading in your phone is a common way for people to upgrade their devices affordably. And personally, I’ve done this many times myself, because It’s a great way to reduce the cost of a new phone and also enables you to responsibly discard your old one. Samsung provides a solid trade-in program that offers excellent values for relatively new—and older—phones. And if your hesitant about trying it out im going to quickly explain how it works, so I can hopefully save you some money in you plan on buying a new phone soon.

Current Samsung Deals

How It Works

Samsung runs its trade-in program through its own website when you go through the process of ordering a new phone. You can trade in a smartphone, tablet, or even a watch. Samsung also allows you to trade in multiple devices during your order, depending on what you want to purchase. Usually for the very newest devices you can only do one trade in at a time.

You are required to select the device’s condition, either good or cracked. If you’re still using the phone you want to trade, Samsung will send you your new purchase before you need to send your old one. Once you receive your new device, you have fifteen days to send Samsung your old product for trade-in. If for whatever reason you don’t send it after getting the new one, or it was not as described, Samsung can remotely disable your new product.

Samsung takes a wide variety of devices from many manufacturers. In terms of smartphones, it takes phones from Apple, Google, LG, OnePlus, Samsung, and more. Samsung takes phones that are generations old, all the way to current smartphones. To be eligible to trade in your phone and get the credit, your device must fulfill specific requirements depending on its condition.

Damaged Devices

  • It needs to be able to be turned on
  • The charging port needs to be fully functional
  • The device can’t be locked or contain your data
  • Camera needs to work

Good Condition Devices

  • It must fulfill all the above requirements

It’s also essential to note that if your current device is on an installment plan through a carrier, you will still have to make payments to your carrier until it has been paid off. If your device passes those requirements, Samsung should have no issue with it. Lastly, after you go through this process Samsung will ship you out a box usually within a week to send your used phone back to them. And it’s a prepaid process which costs you nothing. Then you just sit back and wait for your credit which can take another week or two.

Final Thoughts

Anyways I honestly hoped this helps you guys out if your considering saving some money on getting a new Samsung release. Anything they tend to release is usually awesome but very expensive. So it makes sense for most people to just trade in the old gadget for something new.
