Cheaper Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note available when trading-in old device via Samsung

August 5, 2012

Earlier today, we showed you a great Galaxy S3 deal from Amazon Wireless, but unfortunately the electronics retailer only offeres the Sprint version for a cheaper price.

Those of you that still want to get a great deal on a Samsung flagship device, whether it’s the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note, or even the older Galaxy S2 handset, should know that Samsung has a new incentive for U.S. smartphone buyers.

After purchasing one of the Galaxy S3 devices mentioned above, you should head on to Samsung’s U.S. Facebook page to fill in a form and then send the company your used device. Samsung will then send you a check via mail later on, after evaluating your handset.

There’s not a fixed cashback offer in place, and it may be wiser to sell your older handsets via eBay or Craigslist, especially if they’re former high-end devices still in good standing and  in working condition. But if you don’t want to deal with the extra hassle of finding a buyer for your former handset, then you could always choose to send the device to Samsung USA.

It’s worth mentioning that Samsung will accept any kind of device, so you won’t be restricted to Samsung-only handsets. In fact, you can trade-in even iPhone models if you decide to move to a Galaxy high-end handset instead.

Has anyone used the promotion? How much cash did you get from Samsung after sending in your old phone?
