Samsung’s massive trade-in programme for Galaxy S9

Samsung South Africa has launched a programme that lets you trade in old smartphones for a discount on a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+.

The programme is offered in partnership with Brightstar and grants discount vouchers of up to R4,500.

Vouchers are valid at participating Samsung Stores, including Samsung Experience Stores. The programme is valid until 11 May 2018.

To trade in old devices, you must register on the Samsung website, after which a Brightstar agent will arrange an appointment to collect and assess your device.

A courier will perform a basic assessment to check the following conditions :

  • Whether the phone powers up and holds charge.
  • That it is factory reset and passwords are disabled.
  • Its display is functional, and that there are no cracks or other signs of damage.

You do not need to include the charger or accessories that came with your device.

Brightstar will then take the device to perform a secondary assessment, after which you will receive an SMS confirmation code to redeem at a Samsung Store.

Vouchers are not transferable, and the full value of the voucher must be redeemed. Any part of the trade-in value you don’t use expires when you leave the store.
