    Don't know if this was mentioned earlier but Samsung is having a killer deal right now. 100$ off the top leaving it at 624$ then another 200$ instant credit for any device trade in. Literally any device as long as it powers on and isn't blacklisted. This deal also applies to the s8+ for 524$. They only charge you the 200$ credit if you never send them a phone or it doesn't meet the criteria.

    Bought an unlocked S8 with this deal last night for $324.99 with an S7 trade in. Great deal.

    Yup. Any phone as long as it powers on and isn't blacklisted. Cancelled my OP5 order when I saw this.

    Damn I wish I saw this earlier! Spent $600 for an S8 on Swappa (hasn't shipped yet). New... But still...

    I am looking for fine print on this offer. I have a new, totally low-end Lenovo A5500 (running Android 5.0.1) that I received for free in China. It's a China Telecom phone, but can take calls on China Mobile and Unicom no problem. 4G coverage, not so much outside of China Telecom.

    It's clearly a smart phone. it works. It's not under contract. But will it qualify? I cannot find any fine print stating it will not qualify.

    $424 unlocked is waaaaay to amazing to pass up. Seriously. If I don't like the phone I can just sell it and not lose any cash. But I'll have to immediately flip the Swappa phone when it arrives.

    Damn. What happens if you buy this and put it on Verizon? Can you get the features like visual voicemail and wifi calling to work?

    If this sale requires going directly thru Samsung I wouldn't get to excited. How many 2 hour plus calls will you need to make to get the credit after they have your trade in, then how many will hear their trade in doesn't meet the requirements, how many will hear a clueless rep say a ticket is made for you and you should hear back in 5 days and you won't. Dealing directly with Samsung is a nightmare.

    Who cares? It's a great deal for a great phone. The LG G6 is also running major sales.

    This is incorrect. The trade in credit is applied immediately at check out and you don't have to deal with Samsung unless you sent them a broken or blacklisted phone. When they do a sale like this when they are accepting literally anything anyone sends in, don't concern yourself thinking they will be picky about what they receive back. The fine print literally says you can send in anything as long as its in normal wear condition, not blacklisted and at least powers on.

    I didn't know, I said if. So biggest thing to worry about is how their recieving process is, which could still be a nightmare. Samsung involved equals nightmare possibilities are high.

    I placed my order for an unlocked phone. $456 with taxes. I'll send them either my Lenovo A5500 (total low end pos) or the old iPhone 5S I have (that I need to fix since my girlfriend has no clue what her apple password is and the rest isn't working. Will likely have to go to apple to fix).

    Heck, if I can get that 5S back to normal I'll also buy the S8+ and just flip it for a small profit!

    Just need to see if I can flash the Verizon firmware to the unlocked phone.

    That's how Android devices make sales. They run major discounts and BOGOS early because sales slow down early. A little over a month on shelves and Samsung already is forced to apply steep discounts.

    My girlfriend is now giving me sh!@ about taking her old iPhone 5S, which has sat in a drawer for TWO YEARS, as my trade-in device. Well I already ordered! So i need a trade-in phone.

    Okay, just went to Swappa and spent $45 on an iPhone 4S in very nice condition. The Samsung deal for the unlocked phone is soooo good it really cannot be passed up. Even if I have to spend $45.

    She also doesn't want to let me have our free to us Lenovo A5500 (total pos android phone from China Telecom), which i would use to trade in for an unlocked S8+.

    Women... Can't live with 'em. Can't kill 'em.

    EDIT/UPDATE: I went ahead and ordered the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 +. It's backordered 2-3 weeks. Taking a chance I can flip it. The unlocked version is the only one seemingly holding it's re-sale price. The S8 has crashed seemingly overnight, from just over $600 to below $550.

    By the way, I ordered with Samsung's 0% credit for 24 months deal.

    How much is taxes? Last time I paid nearly $80 or something. If so that would make it $504

    They probably made too many unlocked versions and no one bought them, instead they bought carrier versions.

    No, these are the unlocked versions, and not carrier affiliated. Besides with so many android brands available,there's always a ton of competition for android users. So when we can get an s8 plus for less than $600, I also say who cares and where do I sign

    They are offering the trade-in discounts on carrier phones. But with the Unlocked they are offering $100 additional off. So an incredible deal. Mine will be a full 300 under retail.

    Great deal.
    Still £687 here in the UK direct from Samsung.

    Hope it stays like that for a good time yet.
    Like how the trade in deal coincided with the Oneplus5 release . Although that turned out to be a non event anyway.

    Yup. It has to turn on and not have excessive damage. Normal wear and tear is allowable. Dings, nicks and so on. And a clean IMEI as you mentioned.

    I hope this deal lasts for a while. I'm trying to get my wife on board with getting a S8 for herself and a S8+ for me. Our Droid Turbo 2's are both on their way out.

    I did go to Verizon store to see if they would match the deal, but no dice. I'm thinking of going to Best Buy so my wife can play around with the phone while I try to get them to match the price.
