Samsung Trade-In Program Terms and Conditions

If you want to keep your new device and trade in your old device, your trade in must qualify under the Samsung Trade-In Program Terms and Conditions, which includes without limitation requirements that the old device powers on and holds a charge; has a functioning display; has no breaks or cracks in the screen (unless you specifically select a cracked screen offer if available at the time you make your Qualifying Purchase); has no breaks or cracks in the case; has no other visible defects that go beyond normal wear and tear; is not on a black list of any kind; has a verified FCC ID; has been reset to factory settings; has all personal information removed from device; and has reactivation lock, Google Factory Reset Protection and all other anti-theft locking software disabled.

If you send in a trade-in device and it is received within 15 days but does not meet all eligibility requirements, you will be charged back the value of the trade-in credit you received 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. You may not participate if you lease or do not own the device you would be trading in. If you don’t send in your old device, you will be charged back for the entire trade-in value that you received off your new device. If you send in a device for trade-in, you will not be able to get that device back under any circumstances. Otherwise you will be charged back for the trade-in value you received  off your new device minus $25. Please review the Trade-In Program Terms and Conditions to see if your device qualifies for trade-in.
