I keep expecting Samsung to stop offering the bloated trade-in prices they made available a few weeks back as part of the Galaxy S10 launch, but here we are with them still live. Not only that, but the newest wave of discounts is a buy one, get one free (BOGO) deal from Verizon or AT&T.
$550 Off Trade-in
To quickly recap – Samsung will give you an instant $550 off on your Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10e purchase today if you trade in select phones. Phones that are worth $550 include the Galaxy S9 line, Note 9, Note 8, a bunch of iPhones, and the Pixel 3. If you don’t own one of those semi-current phones and have something else to trade, don’t worry, because they’ll give you $300 off for a Pixel 2 XL, Galaxy S8, etc.
Understand that as Samsung gives you the discount for your trade-in today, you do need to send in your phone as proof after you get your new Galaxy S10. They’ll include all of the instructions for doing so. It’s a super easy process that we’ve done many times here at DL.
AT&T and Verizon BOGO
As for the BOGO stuff, AT&T and Verizon are offering some form of a free phone deal. Verizon will ask you to buy an S10, S10+, or S10e and then give you a $750 credit to apply towards another. That will cover the cost of an S10e, but will leave you with some money owed on an S10 or S10+.
For the Verizon deal, you can upgrade for one of the phones. The free phone will need to be on a new line, though.
From AT&T, it’s a similar deal to Verizon’s, with a new line requirement. However, they appear to be letting you BOGO any combo of Galaxy S10 phones. They’ll give you up to $1,000 off the second phone through Samsung’s store. AT&T’s site, for what it’s worth, is only doing a BOGO $750 credit like Verizon’s.
The $550 off and BOGO deals cannot be combined, just so you know.
