Samsung Will Give $600 for Your iPhone X If You Buy a Galaxy Note 9 or S9
Samsung has kicked off a double-value trade-in program for buyers of the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and Note 9. The company is willing to pay more than Apple will for a used iPhone X in good condition, so long as the person is buying one of Samsung's latest flagship Galaxy devices. After the program ends on November 3, it will only offer $399 for an iPhone X.
The latest offer isn't quite double for the iPhone X due to the $600 cap, but the trade-in value of all other devices that Samsung normally offers up to $300 for is doubled. Samsung is currently offering $550 for the iPhone 8, or $200 more than what Apple is offering under Apple GiveBack, and $300 for an old iPhone 7, $100 more than Apple's offer.
Samsung has a trade-in program for other phones as well
Besides the iPhone X, the only phones Samsung will pay $600 for include the iPhone 8 Plus, and the Galaxy S9 Plus. Samsung has published a full list of its current offers. To get the double trade-in value, buyers will need to purchase a Galaxy Note9, S9+ or S9 from a participating carrier or retailer by the November 3 deadline. After buying a new Galaxy, owners will need to use the Shop Samsung app to send in information about the purchase and the trade-in device by November 17.
Phones need to be in a good and working condition for owners to receive the listed offer when purchasing eligible Galaxy phones. Samsung will then check the trade-in device for damage. If it is eligible, it will pay via the buyer's Visa Virtual Account around two to three months later. We're not entirely sure how many people will take Samsung up on the offer. Making the switch from iOS to Android is tedious and it might not be worth it to some hardcore Apple aficionados.
