Guaranteed buy-back

What is “guaranteed buy-back”?

With the guaranteed buy-back program, you can purchase a new phone with the option to return it in good condition within 24 months for 50% of the full retail value at purchase. Please see the program terms and conditions for complete details.

What devices are eligible for guaranteed buy-back?

Currently, all Galaxy S20 models are eligible for this offer. Other products may also be added in the future.

How do I participate in guaranteed buy-back?

Purchase your new S20 on or using the Shop Samsung app. You must login to your Samsung Account and opt into the program by selecting guaranteed buy-back when purchasing your S20 device. Galaxy devices purchased on other retail and carrier sites are not eligible for the guaranteed buy-back program.

Can I combine other promotions with guaranteed buy-back?

Everyday trade-in offers can be combined with the guaranteed buy-back program but if you opt to receive 50% of your purchase price back when you return your phone in good condition, you will not be eligible for higher-value trade-in offers.

Accessories and other add-ons can still be purchased in the same order.
Carrier financing and Samsung Upgrade are not compatible with this offer.
