    Between Verizon and Samsung I'm getting a run around on this. I did the pre order and picked my Note 4 up yesterday, the Verizon store talked me out of trading my phone in with them, they knew nothing at all about the Samsung promotion. I'm not exactly surprised about that since I can't find anything about it on the Samsung website either unless I go into a live chat and then they will give me a link. Of course the link doesn't come up as one you can bookmark and I've lost it, I have tried twice today to get into a live chat with them and it starts out fine but when I try to post my question to them it tells me I'm not in a live chat. They are having some problems.

    I'm waiting for a call back from the gal I dealt with yesterday at Verizon to see if I can get them to do the trade in after the fact but I am not getting a good feeling about this at all.

    Can someone here please post the link to the promotion so I can at least find that?

    . I have service with Straight Talk. I pre ordered a Galaxy Note 4 at Best Buy - I had to give a $50.00 deposit which was given back to me in the form of a gift card. A few days later I got the Note 4 - I graded in an Iphone 3 I bough on Ebay for $35.00 - I got a $200 Best Buy gift card. I signed up for a 2 year AT & T contract - cost $65.00 / month for TT and 1 gig data - this sucks because on Straight talk I paid $47.00 for TT and 3 gigs data. The extra $20.00 a month will add up to $480 over 24 months. I am thinking of keeping the phone for a month and cancelling AT and T service - I will have to pay the $325.00 early termination fee, but I will save over 2 years , not have a contract and have 3 gigs of data a month. Can anyone see anything in the plan that won't work? I went to AT and T to get the phone unlocked and they can't find the number associated with the phone I bought does anyone have any idea why? Thanks for all replies.
    That will work. I have done that before. They won't unlock until you have around 60 days of service with them and it must be paid in full.

    I found the link so I don't need that but I'm pretty sure my Verizon store screwed me out of my rebate. I tried to trade my Note 2 in, in pristine condition with box and everything, the original back had been in the box since I bought a flip case at the time I bought the phone and they had put it on in the store. They assured me I could sell it on ebay for at least $200 in that condition, a lie, I checked ebay after I got home and yeah right they aren't selling there for anywhere near $200.

    I'm very unhappy at the moment even though I do love the Note 4.

    So I was considering buying a Droid 3 on ebay with clean esn and great condition for 35. I should get it by the 29th. Tmobile's trade in value is 6. Best buy online is $10. I'm assuming this would work for the $200 promotion if I traded thru best buy online. Sorry for all the questions

    guys please help me out!

    Here is the situation:

    I placed order yesterday with Verizon the promo is now extended to non-pre orders ! awesome!
    However it says I must have trade in plus order data on same day.

    That was not possible for me I Had to order via phone , I would like to order a phone that has 10$ value to verizon and trade in but it would have different trade in date by few days.

    Will I be eligble ??

    I had to order my phone via phone so it's impossible for same trade in day as order.

    How would I go with this promo?

    Thursday was when I submitted.

    Thanks! You’re officially registered for Smart Samsung Phone. Brilliant Friends and Family Deal.

    If you submitted your preorder and trade-in receipts claim online, be on the lookout for a confirmation email. Once we’ve approved your signed receipts, your check should arrive in approximately 6 to 8* weeks.

    If you opted to mail in your signed receipts, you must print and mail this email along with your receipt to:

    Rocking the Note 4
    I had to do my order via phone so it was not possible to do trade in at same time
    do you think I would be ok if I told them I had order through phone and that is why trade in date would be different?

    phone was ordered yesterday over the phone with Verizon

    Trade it link.

    Verizon

    I emailed them saying their site sucked(in nicer words) and they said it should be fixed and to try again. I did and it worked.
    Can you check my issue and see what you would suggest I Do? I don't want to re-order the phone and even if I did I would have to do it over the phone again..

    Our verizon store handed me a small white receipt with the trade in phone and trade in value/date on it.

    My pre-order receipt was almost 2 feet long, detailing the pre order and my plan. Hope it works. I got the confirmation email anyway

    I could be wrong but I don't think trade in and order date have to be the same.

    Those verizon people were right. You could get over $200 for a pristine Note 2 on eBay or craigslist. The point of the trade in is to recycle an older phone worth at least $10. I know you might not have an old phone to trade in, but you would be better off selling the Note 2 and just getting a cheap phone just for trade in purposes.

    Also Verizon has nothing to do with the Samsung rebate promotion. it's strictly a Samsung thing.

    it says it has to be on same transaction :/ for pre orders I heard it does not but for non-pre orders it has to have same date I think.

    If I understood it wrong help me out someone please



    in the same transaction, purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S5 Sport or Galaxy S5 Active between 10/17/14 and 10/31/14, trade in an eligible working smartphone valued $10 or more at a participating retailer, and then complete and submit an Offer claim

    Thank you, when I looked at ebay yesterday the prices on the Note 2 were so low I was upset, today they are much better.

    I do have an old phone or two laying around here but probably wouldn't meet the minimum $10 trade in value.

    I will take some pics and put it up on ebay.

    So since I pre-ordered from Tmobile. Would I be able to trade in a phone I bought on ebay (droid x2) at best buy online for $15 and qualify for the promotion? I would trade it in thru tmobile but it's only valued at $8.

    It's not Verizon's promotion, so there's no reason for them to know much about it. It's a rebate.

    I'm bummed. I thought my Evo 4g had a trade in value of $10, turns out its the 4G lite version and mine is only worth $4. Anyone know the best place to buy a phone real cheap to use for the trade in.

    Posted via the Android Central App
    If you are doing the deal at Best Buy, the phone only has to be a smart phone, work and not have a cracked screen. It will then be worth 200 dollars via their gift card. If you are mailing your own to Samsung, go to Best Buy or EBay and buy a qualifying phone. Some posters have purchased them for around 35 dollars.
    Good Luck!

    I recycled my old device via Verizon. I received an electronic gift card. Yet it says on the Samsung promotion page I have to sign the receipt. But I don't have a receipt to sign. Verizon simply sent me an electronic gift card.

    I hope not: Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note® 4 from any participating carrier or retailer in the U.S from 9/19 through 10/16. (Verizon customers through 10/22).

    Trade in any working smartphone at a participating retailer (minimum $10 trade-in value).

    I did both, where does it say you can't trade in on line? Thanks

    The same thing happened to me but I went back to the store and asked for a receipt. They were able to print out a receipt for me.

    I dont think so.. if you trade in at best buy you would need to get the $200 giftcard from bestbuy, that won't apply though since you ordered from T Mobile

    Ugh bummer. Well since I already ordered a cheap smartphone I'm going to give it a try. I guess the worse they can say is no.

    The whole point of getting the $200 gift card is with the purchase of an s5/note 4 I wouldn't even try if you're not buying from bestbuy

    I may try it online and see if I can use the trade in value as a receipt and upload it for Samsung. It probably won't work. I'd do it thru tmobile online but it's only valued at 8. It's harder to find phones valued at 10 for tmobile.

    Did you have any luck with this promotion?
