There are two things Samsung is known for when it comes to trading in phones for its latest flagships: You can run into some serious issues, but Samsung gives insane values in the name of making a sale. This trend looks set to hold true for the Galaxy S20, as well, with Samsung offering up to $700 on trade-ins, including $600 for dissatisfied Pixel 4 owners, and $300 for both the Pixel 3 and 3a series. That can get you a Galaxy S20 for as little as $300.

Samsung has narrowed the range of phones it's willing to accept for trade-ins, though. For the Note10, the company was pushing back as far as the OG Pixel for acceptable trade-ins, but this year the list is much shorter:


  • Pixel 4/4 XL: $600
  • Pixel 3/3 XL: $300
  • Pixel 3a/3a XL: $200


  • iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max: $700
  • iPhone 11: $600
  • iPhone XS/XS Max: $600
  • iPhone XR: $300
  • iPhone 8/8 Plus: $300
  • iPhone 7/7 Plus: $200
  • iPhone 6/6S/6S Plus: $200


  • Galaxy Note10/Note10+: $700
  • Galaxy S10/S10+: $600
  • Galaxy S9/S9+: $300
  • Galaxy S10e: $300
  • Galaxy Note9: $300
  • Galaxy S8/S8+/S8 Active: $200
  • Galaxy Note8: $200
  • Galaxy S7, S7 Active, S7 Edge: $200

These trade-in values should be valid for both unlocked and carrier-branded versions of these phones, and with it you can net a Galaxy S20 for as little as just $300, an S20+ for $500, or a Galaxy S20 Ultra for a slightly-less-eye-watering $700, plus up to $200 in instant credit for Samsung's store, depending on which you pick up. Carrier financing can also defer the up-front cost further after your discount.

To snag this deal, just head to Samsung's site and "reserve" a device, selecting a trade-in option. But keep in mind, Samsung's track record with these trade-ins isn't the best, though at least you're getting more value than other companies are willing to give.
