The official Samsung USA online store is also offering a trade-in promotion for the new Samsung S21 three-headed flagship monster. The maximum you get is $700 with a working screen, or $550 with a cracked screen.

The trade-in credit promotion is stackable with the previously mentioned pre-order bonuses

The trade-in credit depends on which smartphone you trade-in for the S21*. It also has to meet the eligibility requirements (starts up, functions, factory reset, no cracks on screen and lenses, not on a banned list). Please do double-check as I may have made a mistake in the assembly of this list:

$700 trade-in credit

  • Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra
  • Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, S20 Ultra
  • iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 PRO, 12 PRO MAX

Cracked Screen phones are eligible but they usually give you $150 less in trade-in credit for them. The cost-n-profit of fixing/replacing the cracked screen πŸ™‚

Please do check all the details, terms, conditions and restrictions of this promotion. I have not done this type of a promotion before so I don’t have first hand experience to tell you how it works…

Pre-order bonuses with Samsung Galaxy S21* pre-orders

Yesterday, a day after the official “Diet CES 2021” ended, Samsung revealed their new Galaxy S three-headed flagship monster, the S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra [see Footnote #1]. If you missed the live unveiling, you can watch the 88 minute socially-distanced presentation (silver lining, COVID-era pre-recorded presentations start on time)

And as usual, Samsung is running a pre-ordering promotion until January 28 in 2021 with the freebies depending on which model you buy:

+ $100 store credit with the S21
+ $150 store credit with the S21 Plus
+ $200 store credit with the S21 Ultra
+ store credit at the Samsung.com online store and/or the Shop Samsung app

+ when you redeem the store credit at Samsung’s, a Galaxy SmartTag will be included automatically for free during checkout
+ neat trick to “encourage” using the store credit

+ promotion ends 1/28/21

The terms and conditions are a little hard to find and with fineprint at the Samsung website, so I’m cut-n-pasting them here. The terms are as of the time of writing of this blog-post. I do not know if they plan to change them in the future…

“18+ & 50 US/DC/PR/USVI only. By 1/28/21, pre-order and purchase a Samsung Galaxy S21 5G, S21+ 5G, or S21 Ultra 5G on device installment plan, 2-year contract plan, lease or outright purchase at full retail price (β€œQualifying Purchase”), & receive a Samsung Galaxy SmartTag ($30 value) + Samsung Credit either (i) $100 (S21 5G), (ii) $150 (S21+ 5G), or (iii) $200 (S21 Ultra 5G) (β€œGift”). Only available while supplies last. By 2/28/21, using your Qualifying Purchase device, follow instructions on the Shop Samsung app (β€œApp”) to submit required info. Gifts will be emailed apprx 4-6 weeks after verification of Qualifying Purchase. Only 47,000 $100, 37,000 $150, and 47,000 $200 Samsung Credits available. Samsung Credits are valid only at www.Samsung.com or in the App for use towards an eligible purchase, and valid through 4/30/21. Gifts subject to availability and are non-transferrable. Limit 1 Gift per Qualifying Purchase. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Additional restrictions apply. Offer subject to additional terms here. Samsung reserves the right to modify or discontinue offer at any time by posting notice on the app or website”

FootNote #1 once upon a time it was a three-headed monster. With the S20 flagship, it’s actually a five-headed monster because there’s also the “Lite” and the “Fan Edition”. Who knows how many variants we’ll get for the 2021 model? The “Stan” edition? The “Shipper” edition? The “Limited Edition”? The “Insiders” edition? The “Valentine” edition? πŸ˜‰
