ᶿFor a limited time only, on Samsung.com/Shop Samsung App, pre-order or purchase a new qualifying Galaxy device (“Qualifying Purchase”), send in your qualifying trade-in device to Samsung through the Samsung Trade-In Program, and if Samsung determines your trade-in device meets all eligibility requirements, you will receive a trade-in credit specific to your qualifying trade-in device to apply toward your Qualifying Purchase. Device models that currently qualify for trade-in and trade-in credit amounts associated with those models are available on Samsung.com and the Shop Samsung App; eligible models and amounts may change at Samsung’s sole discretion. To be eligible for trade-in, your qualifying device must meet all Trade-In Program eligibility requirements, which include, but are not limited to, that the device powers on, holds a charge, and does not power off unexpectedly; has a functioning display; has no breaks or cracks in the screen (unless a cracked screen offer applies); has no breaks or cracks in the case; has no liquid damage (whether visible or not); has no other defects that go beyond normal wear and tear; is not on a black list; has a verified FCC ID; has been reset to factory settings; has all personal information removed; has all software locks disabled; and is owned by you (leased devices are not eligible). Anticipated trade-in value will be applied as a credit at time of purchase, but, if you do not send in your trade-in device within 15 days of receipt of your Qualifying Purchase, you will be charged back for the trade-in credit applied to your purchase, or if you send in your trade-in device within 15 days of receipt of your Qualifying Purchase but Samsung determines your device does not meet all eligibility requirements, you will be charged back for the trade-in credit applied to your purchase minus $25. Participation in this program does not excuse you from contracts with your carrier or retailer (or any related payments or fees) for the device that was traded in. Limit 1 trade-in per Qualifying Purchase. Samsung reserves the right to modify or discontinue this offer at any time. The Trade-In Program cannot be combined with any other Samsung, carrier or retailer promotions, discounts, or offers unless specifically provided for in the terms and conditions of such offers.

ᵠLimited time only, while supplies last, exclusively on Samsung.com and the Shop Samsung App (excluding in-person Samsung Studios transactions made using the App). You must opt-in to the Samsung Upgrade Program, apply and be approved for a financing account (“Financing Account”) under the Samsung Financing Program and make an initial purchase of an eligible Samsung Galaxy device (“Initial Device”) on a 24 month payment plan using your Financing Account. The price of your Initial Device plus any applicable shipping charges and taxes is the amount you will finance with your Financing Account (“Financed Amount”). After 12 months from the date Samsung ships your Initial Device to you, if your Financing Account is in good standing, you purchase a new Galaxy device (“Upgrade Device”) on a new 24 month payment plan using the Financing Account and you return your Initial Device to Samsung in good condition and meeting all requirements stated in the full terms and conditions for Upgrade Program (“Upgrade Terms”), then you will receive an upgrade credit (“Upgrade Credit”) equal to the balance of the applicable Financed Amount that remains outstanding on your Financing Account, up to a maximum of 50% of the Financed Amount (“Maximum Credit”). The Upgrade Credit is entirely subject to receipt by Samsung of your Initial Device in good condition and meeting all requirements stated in the Upgrade Terms. If your Initial Device does not meet these requirements, the Upgrade Credit will be reduced to $25 or the balance of the Financed Amount that remains outstanding on your Financing Account, whichever is less (“Limited Credit”). “Good condition” means that your Initial Device powers on and holds a charge, has a functioning display, has no breaks or cracks or other visible defects that go beyond normal wear and tear, and is not on a black list of any kind. In addition, before returning your Initial Device, you must perform a factory reset and remove all personal information from the device and disable reactivation lock, Google Factory Reset Protection and all other anti-theft locking software. If you do not return your Initial Device to Samsung within 14 days after you purchase your Upgrade Device, you will not receive any Upgrade Credit. Pending the application of your Upgrade Credit (whether the Maximum Credit or Limited Credit), you must continue to make all minimum payments as required by the Financing Account terms. This includes any amounts for the new purchase of your Upgrade Device. If the Upgrade Credit you receive is less than the outstanding Financed Amount, any remaining balance of the Financed Amount will also remain subject to required minimum payments in accordance with the Financing Account terms. After you return your Initial Device to Samsung, it will not be returned to you under any circumstances, regardless of its condition or the amount of Upgrade Credit applied to your Financing Account. Neither the Initial Device nor the Upgrade Device may be resold. The Upgrade Program may be modified or cancelled at any time in Samsung’s sole discretion. Additional terms apply. Void where prohibited. See the Upgrade Terms at www.samsung.com/us/mobile/phones/upgrade/terms-and-conditions/.
