In short: Samsung has been accepting trade-ins for those looking to pick up the Galaxy Note 9. These trade-ins would make the cost of the Galaxy Note 9 a bit less, seeing as you are able to get that amount off of the price of the Galaxy Note 9. Typically these trade-in offers are pretty small, like $100 for a phone that's only a year old. But Samsung has just doubled the price of trade-ins for those that want to upgrade to the Galaxy Note 9. You can get up to $600 now, for your trade-in. However, the only devices that are getting the full $600 off are the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. Many of the others are still around $300 for a trade in.
Background: Trade-ins are a great way for companies like Samsung to make it easier for customers to upgrade and buy a new phone. While it's not the best price that customers could get for their old phone, it is definitely faster, and easier than selling it on Craigslist, eBay or even Swappa. And that amount is taken off of the regular price of the Galaxy Note 9. So imagine you get $600 off of the Galaxy Note 9, that brings the price down to $399, which is actually an absolute steal for this device, given everything that it packs inside.
Impact: You can purchase the Galaxy Note 9 from Samsung's site to take advantage of this offer. You will start buy choosing your Galaxy Note 9 - which includes the color, capacity and carrier model. Afterwards, you'll be asked if you want to trade-in a device, and that is where you'll input the information about your current smartphone. Now you can stack this on top of the other promos that Samsung is doing right now. Like getting a Verizon version of the Galaxy Note 9 and financing it, to get $200 off.
