    So we can't do the trade in until the phone is in stock then?

    I have trouble reading the fine print on the Samsung promotion
    However, i thing you have to pre-order between 9/19 - 10/16.
    Once you receive your phone, you need to submit your offer claim to Samsung between 10/10/14 - 11/30/14 or while offer supply lasts. I not sure what they mean "or while offer supply lasts". However if you pre-order, then recieive the phone, then trade-in the old phone, then submit the claim. I believe the timing works and you and me also will not be without a phone.
    Does this sound correct to everyone?
    If so, I plan on pre-ordering through Verizon.

    I was just off the phone from Samsung CS Rep that the $200 offer is only good from carrier retail store (ATT, verizon. etc).... but I am not hearing confidence in his tone... probably just a SWAG...

    probably someone who has done the preorder with Bestbuy can show us the receipt to confirm if the $200 Bestbuy giftcard mentioned anywhere in the receipt ?

    The large print on the Samsung offer says you have to preorder "from any carrier or retailer in the U.S." but the tiny print refers to doing a trade-in "at a participating retailer." Sure doesn't look limited to carriers to me.

    I think the question is whether, when you go to trade in your old phone, will the trade-in receipt show that Best Buy gave you $200 for it.

    My local bestbuy mobile people are clueless. The o,e said oh it is a $20 gift card. Then when I said it is 200 I asked would I qualify if I bought it off contract and they said no. Then they said they did not,know the off contract price of Verizon's and tried telling me it would most likely be 800. Anyone know how much the verizon note 4 will be off contract at bestbuy? I might just,preorder there and submit the claim via the Samsung website itself if,bestbuy won't give me the 200 gift card.

    I am not sure what my Motorola Droid X2 is worth. Where do you find the values that Samsung allows for old phones? My old phone looks mint and works, but might not be worth anything to Samsung. ( I wish I could just give them $10 if the phone isn't worth anything.)

    The wording of the BestBuy offer is interesting. It says pre-order the GN4 today and "get $200 Best Buy gift card at time of purchase with trade-in of any working smartphone." It doesn't say that the gift card is for the trade-in. And the small print says that trade-in value may vary. Why would they say that the trade-in value may vary if they're giving you the $200 gift card for your trade-in, no matter what it is, so long as it's working? Maybe you get $10 (or whatever amount) for your trade-in, plus the $200 gift card for the pre-order purchase. (probably not, but the wording doesn't preclude that)

    One additional positive thing is that the small print suggests that the $200 can be applied to the purchase of the GN4: "Taxes applied to price of phone prior to the gift card credit." I'd much rather get $200 off at time of purchase than wait to receive the trade-in guarantee payment from Samsung (assuming you can only get one or the other, of which I am not totally convinced).

    My wife and I pre-ordered yesterday and the the store did not know anything about this until I showed them on my phone. I just got off the phone with 888-BestBuy and the rep told me that when we go to pickup our phones, we do the trade-in then. After approximately 16 days (need to wait until after the 14 return period) you will receive an e-giftcard for the $200. This rebate is instead of the one from Samsung.

    Why not trade in two phones?
    I still have old iPhone 3GS. Could I could trade that into Best Buy, get the $200 gift card then trade in my S4 to Samsung to get the cash?

    As far as I can ascertain Samsung themselves do not accept trade ins. That has to be done through the carrier or retailer. Myself I have to order directly from AT&T because I would have their early upgrade program and that is only through AT&T directly, not through retailers. So I checked the value of my S3 on their website and it's $60 and if I'm understanding correctly Samsung will send me a check for $140. I would have rather traded my Captivate and kept the S3 for a back up but it's only valued by AT&T at $9 and again if I understand correctly the minimum trade in value has to be $10 to qualify for the Samsung rebate. Bottom line is I was going to get either a Note 3 or 4 and with the Samsung $200 trade in the Note 4 costs $100 which is the same price as the Note 3. I think we can thank Apple for the $200 rebate because they have up to $300 on a prior model iPhone trade in on an iPhone 6 and I'm sure Samsung didn't want to lose market share because of it.

    You trade in at Beat Buy. I pre-ordered my Note 4 yesterday but the sales person said I would only get $40 for my GNex. I told him about the promo and he said that thru BB it is UP TO $200 or as "brentj" stated previously "trade in value may vary". I checked the fine print on the BB promo web page and he is right so I'll be getting $40 from Best Buy and then submitting the paperwork to Samsung for the remaining $160.

    Reading the fine print for the best buy offer, it says no cracked phones. I have a cracked eVo 4g lte,( just happened last week), s what would be easiest to do. Change the screen out, or just switch my active phone back to my first eVo? Would they accept a phone that old?

    And can u still do the payment plan for the phone added to your monthly phone bill get it at best buy and do the trade in offer?

    That sales person is simply wrong. You can at least get a $200 gift card from Best Buy if you pre-order the Note 4. That is clear from their web page. The point I was trying to make is that it is not completely clear, and perhaps the $200 gift card is in addition to whatever they give you for trade-in (probably not, but the argument could be made).

    But if the BestBuy and Samsung offers are "either one or the other, but not both," AND if the BestBuy gift card cannot be applied to the purchase of the Note 4, then maybe it's better to get $40 trade-in from BestBuy and $160 cash from Samsung. (Unless there is something else you want to buy at BestBuy in a couple weeks with the gift card.)

    My question is, do we know if BestBuy will allow us to use the $200 giftcard on the note 4 purchases that day?? For me, this makes all the difference.

    Does it even show the value of your trade-in (to be over $10) on the receipt ?

    so i was at BB a couple of days ago, and they told me the following, which is not reflected in the BB site. they told me they will not accept trade-in and cashback unless i purchase the phone on contract... no outright purchases. verizon is selling it 699 outright, so i thought why not, since they come sim-unlocked and take it over to t-mo on the walmart plan. but the "contract only" made me walk away. either they don't know what they're saying (more than likely) or it is true. i'm just going to pre-order at t-mo store so that i can get wifi calling, even though it is going to cost $50 more & rebate via samsung. totally worth it not dealing with BB.

    I'd have to clarify this later at work but usually the way these work is that these offers are only good if the phone is activated at Best Buy. Our system will give us the option that asks if we want to include the promo and will ask for the phone number that was used for the activation. If it was activated then the customer will get the extra money. All trade-ins are issued in the form of a Best Buy gift card and can be used towards the purchase of the phone.

    Can you check how much bestbuy will be charging for the verizon note 4 off contract?

    Also,if we do the promotion through Samsung's website, can we do our trade in whenever we want. For example, could I preorder today and do my trade in tomorrow and qualify for the promo? I only see restrictions on the min. Trade in value on the promo site.

    I can also check with our Samsung rep to see how their promo works.

    It's $799 which is surprising since its cheaper than AT&T.

    Well if it is truely 799 then wr are better off,buying it from verizon or somewhere else as verizon sells it for 699. The 799 you are referencing was the note 4 you preordered,right? At&tis charging more for theirs then verizon so that is why I am hoping the no contract price for,the verizon version at bestbuy will be the too that verizon charges
