Samsung improves Galaxy S20 trade-in offer, pays more for older phones

Amid falling smartphone sales and dropped revenue, Samsung is trying to revitalize Galaxy S20 sales by offering more for older phones via its new trade-in offer in the US. The South Korean firm had initially favored those who were looking to upgrade to the Galaxy S20 from 2019 phones like the Galaxy S10, iPhone 11, and the Pixel 4. Now, the company has started paying more phones like the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s which were launched in 2018 (or even earlier).

Samsung is now paying less for newer phones and more for older phones via its Galaxy S20 trade-in program. For example, the company was paying $700 and $600 for the Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy S10, respectively. However, the discounts have been reduced to $500 for those phones, which is up to $200 lower. On the other hand, trade-in values for older phones like the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, and Galaxy Note 9 have been increased by $100 each.

Trade-in values for older phones from other brands like Apple and Google have been increased as well. Samsung is also accepting devices with cracked screens or scratched camera lenses. Other offers also include free four-month YouTube Premium and six-month Spotify premium plans.

Here are the new trade-in values for all Apple, Google, and Samsung phones if you are planning to upgrade to the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or the Galaxy S20 Ultra:
