    Best Buy is doing this too.

    If you want to go through Samsung for the promo, pre-order at BB and send a pic of your pre-order receipt to Samsung. They'll send you a Visa gift card so your trade-in equals out to be $200.

    Best Buy is also offering a $200 trade-in credit towards the Note 4.

    Is the bestbuy promo the same as Samsung's where you trade in a phone and get 200 total or do you get the 200 plus whatever they say the phone is worth.

    The way it usually works is that you'll get a gift card that equals $200 including the initial trade-in price.

    Example: Your phone is worth $50 for trade-in so BB will add $150 to make it equal $200 total.

    Well I see bestbuys website says you get the gift card at the time of purchase. I wonder If they would let you buy the phone now and get the gift card to apply to the phone purchase now too. I might have to go talk to them and find out. I am thinking of selling my g3 to get this and trading in an old thunderbolt for the 200 promo.

    How are you supposed to return the N4 should you not like it? You have traded in your old phone which would be tough to get back, wouldn't it? Or will they just give back the value of the old phone subtracting the rebate from your refund?

    best buy 200 GC promo and and samsung promo are 2 different promos....

    But you won't qualify for the samsung promo if bestbuy rings it up in a way where the trade in receipt has the 200 gift card on it cause it will show that you received 200 for your trade in. I bet that is how they will do it and are most likely getting reimbursed by Samsung on their bestbuy promo.

    You get the BB gift card at the time of trade-in/activation.

    Well hopefully bestbuy does not have the $ 10 minimum trade in requirement that the Samsung officer has because my thunderbolt is currently listed as $10 and it could drop from now to the note 4 launch.

    It depends on the carrier. With VZW, I noticed that if people have the old unlimited plan our system will tell us that the current plan is no longer available and force us to change it if the customer gives us the OK. If they say no, then we can't complete the upgrade. I think with AT&T it'll just go through. I haven't come across one in a while though.

    There is no way to keep unlimited and get a subsidized phone at best buy stores. And the best buy trade in requires buying in store (or in store pickup).

    If you want to keep unlimited and get a subsidized upgrade , you can use one of the loopholes discussed in the Verizon forum

    If you have another smart phone line on your account that is not unlimited data, you can transfer your lines upgrade to that line via the verizon website and then upgrade online. You would then have to submit for the Samsung rebate instead of the bestbuy gift card.

    The last 2 subsidized phones I got from Radio Shack & Costco both allowed me to keep my AT&T grandfathered unlimited data plan. Are you absolutely certain you can't keep a grandfathered AT&T unlimited data plan if you buy a subsidized phone from Best Buy?

    I preordered from Best Buy because they quoted $15 for my Droid Charge (VZ was $8). I will turn down the Best Buy offer and submit for the Samsung offer so I can get cash instead of gift cards. Pay for the phone on edge ($35/mo but reduces my bill by $25. So it costs $10/mo for 20 mo or $200). I get another $50 gift card from Best Buy for signing up back in February to buy a new phone there in 2014. So $200 from Samsung pays for the phone, and additional $50 gift card. Winner, Winner.

    I just checked Samsung's $200 rebate website and they require you to trade in your existing phone prior to receiving your Note 4. If the phone you're trading is the one you're currently using that doesn't make any sense.

    Att allows you to keep unlimited when upgrading, but not Verizon.

    I think you are mistaken. https://samsunggalaxypromotions.com/Note4/ is the web page that lists the steps:

    1. Preorder the GN4 between 9/19 and 10/16

    2. Trade in any working smartphone (tiny print at the bottom says it must be worth at least $10)

    3. Starting 10/10, come back to this site and submit your purchase and trade-in information.

    4. Enter your contact info.

    5. Enter your device's HEX MEID (which means you've got to have purchased and received your new phone)

    6. Upload both preorder and trade-in receipts for validation.

    The tiny print at the bottom says that your return to the Samsung page and submission of claims (as described above) must be done between 10/10 and 11/30, which extends roughly six weeks after the deadline for preorder of 10/10. Given all of that, it looks to me like you can pre-order the GN4, then when it comes in you go to get it and trade in an old smartphone, and then you go back to the Samsung web page to submit the pre-order and trade-in receipts and purchase info for your new GN4.
