Samsung has taken the smartphone approach to upgrading, to its TVs now. With smartphones, many carriers and manufacturers have made it possible to upgrade every year or every other year, without spending a ton of money. And this is done by a financing program, where you are paying for the total cost of the phone over monthly payments. Now Samsung is looking to do the same thing with TVs. It has announced its Samsung Upgrade program here, which includes financing with 36 monthly payments.
The program is pretty simple, and it only applies to its QLED TVs, and not its LED TVs. So you are going to be upgrading to Samsung's highest-end TVs each time. But you will buy a TV and finance it from Samsung, also add Samsung Upgrade on checkout. You'll have 36 monthly payments with 0% APR – so you won't be paying anything extra here. After 24 months, you'll be able to upgrade that TV to a newer model. Samsung does say that if you decide to upgrade, it will apply a credit of up to 33-percent of the initial financed amount from your existing TV to the new TV. Then you'll pay the remainder over the next 36 months. So if you do keep the TV for closer to three years, you'll get more than if you upgrade as soon as it hits two years.
If you're one that wants to be on the bleeding edge of TV tech, then you are going to want to get in on Samsung Upgrade. This is a great program to be able to upgrade your TV every other year or even every three years, seeing as TV tech does move pretty quickly these days, it's a great idea to join this program. It's similar to the smartphone upgrade programs that many carriers and manufacturers have these days, but it's a bit longer, and that's likely due to the fact that TV tech is a bit slower than smartphone tech. As well as the fact that TVs are typically more expensive than smartphones. You can check out the Samsung Upgrade program at the link below and learn more about the program as well.
