    Asurion has advised that "the Android lock feature is still enabled on your original device".
    They want me to "deactivate this feature from your new device or PC".
    "If the lock is not turned off within 10 days, your original device will be returned to you and we will be charging your nominated credit card the trade-in value credit of $5".

    The phone had a factory reset done before sending and no google account was inputted to the phone. So I can't erase remotely.
    Looks like a tricky one to me - at least they didn't try to say my phone was damaged.

      What phone is it?

      Surely your phone is worth much more than $5..

      •  

        Samsung S7 - their trade in value was $5. Yes it could be sold for far more than that, but it was all I had that was acceptable to them to trade in.
        Similarly an S9 is only $60, which is not exciting news.

    dont reply & they will send you your phone back & charge you $5, im sure you can get more then $5 reselling it

      Agree, but we are all concerned about what might happen with Samsung.

    I returned my trade-in phone (s20Fe 4g) and Asurion received it on 28th of April.
    Today they debited the trade in value $305 from my credit card.
    Anyone with the same issue?
    The phone is in pristine condition and only a few months old, no email from Asurion!
    Ps: I bought from the older deal back in March.

    •  

      What is the quote you got from the Samsung trade in app?

    •  

      Yep. They have advised that they are debiting the $5 since "it's physical condition doesn't match the details entered when you completed your tradeup".
      This is after the earlier email about the Android Lock claim.
      I have asked to state specifically what does not match - I have photos of the phone from before sending it to them.

      What are they up to?
      $5 for an S7 is not much money anyway

      •  

        I've had the same email Karen. I also took photos of my phone before sending it and I know it was in good condition. Something odd going on.

        •  

          They have backed down and are now refunding my $5.
          The phone battery was f***ked anyway.

  •  

    I had a chat with an agent online, and they were saying they would not provide $200 voucher anymore. Is anyone successful to get a voucher? Could you please share the code? Many thanks

    •  

      Tried a few times yesterday and today with different chat agents but no luck. Deal ends today so I made the purchase regardless after 3 hours of struggling with their website that kept crashing! Oh this phone better be worth it! Lol

      • +1 vote

        I received today after multiple attempts. I changed the name and email in live chat and got in first attempt lol. Its only $150 and not stackable with trade in promo.

        •  

          Darn

  •  

    I managed to order a Phantom Navy one with the trade in bonus. Says it'll be 4-5 wks. Then got an SMS yesterday saying I have a Samsung order arriving today.

    The site still says the phone is "dispatched" and the expected delivery date is in a few weeks. I'm assuming what will arrive today is the packaging to return by trade in phone.

    Is that anyone else's experience?

    •  

      No they will send you an email with the trade up instructions.
      1 - Transfer your data to your new phone

      2 - Unlock and disable all passwords and security features on your original device

      3 - Erase any data by performing a factory reset and remove your sim card

      4 - Take your original device and this email into your nearest Australia Post outlet

      5 - Australia Post will take your original device and return it (at no charge) when you show them the eParcel label attached to this email

      •  

        Hmm. Interesting. Thanks. Then it's odd I have a single SMS saying I have a Samsung delivery coming today, but their website still says expected delivery is a few weeks away and the "order phase" its in is still 1 out of 5.

        Guess I'll find out by the end of the day ¯_(ツ)_/¯

        •  

          The website is updated very slowly for many. It can take days to update per some of the comments I've seen.

          If you received an SMS saying delivery today it will be the phone. They don't send return packaging, they only send an email with a return postage label. You take that (printed or just the email) to Australia Post who will provide the satchel. Have seen least one comment that the Australia Post they took it to wanted them to pay for the packaging. And there have been many people saying the returned phone has damage and they were charged the difference between damaged and non damaged trade in values. I personally provided my own packaging rather than risk it getting damaged in transit in just a satchel.

          •  

            @tbone74: Thanks, appreciate the intel.

            I'm just being impatient as I'm sure I'll know in a couple more hours. But I resolved I wouldn't be getting the thing for another month or so - so that SMS just threw me into confusion :'D

          •  

            @tbone74: Well that settles that.

            It just arrived.

            For anyone else considering the Phantom Navy colour but was afraid of the 4-5wk delivery wait - I ordered mine last Sunday night. Very impressed with the five day delivery.

    Hi everyone looks like the $400 trade in has been extended until June 30th.

    •  

      I presume that is non-stackable with other coupons, like the $50 email newsletter one?

  •  

    Still have not gotten the email asking me to return my phone.
    My order on the samsung website is marked as Dispatched, does it need to change to delivered before I get the email do we know?

    •  

      I only started getting that email after receiving the new phone, I guess so you get a chance to transfer and setup everything.

      •  

        Oh my phone was delivered last week!

    from Aurion:

    "Thanks for your query, if you wish to not return your old device you will be charged the full trade-in credit you received at checkout when purchasing your new device. After this it will no longer be a requirement to return your old device to us. Please keep in mind that any promotions or bonuses you received in addition to your trade-in credit are managed by Samsung directly and Asurion does not manage or apply extra promotional credit. We hope that this information has been helpful.

    Unfortunately, we do not have the exact time frame of when you will be charged, this is an automated process and the charge should occur after 14 days has passed since you were sent your return label. To make the process as easy as possible please keep the funds available in your account.

    You may receive some reminder emails about returning your old device which you can ignore if you’re planning to keep that device. "

    (please folks stop worrying about your $400. You have agreed for Aurion to debit the smaller amount, but your transaction with Samsung is done and dusted.)

      Did anyone contact Samsung Promotion Team (mail: [email protected]) to clarify this??

          Can you share some evidence for the charge mate?

    I did not return my Note 9 and today I got charged the trade in value($150.00) from Asurion in my bank account.

    I previously confirmed with them that i wasn't going to send my phone back (due to recent damage), and they responded saying it's okay if you did not want to return the phone, you would only be charged the Trade in value of the phone and other discounts/ bonus would still be valid.

    I bought an S21 from this/previous deal - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/619315

    I bought the S21, sent in my old S7 and just now got an email from Asurion saying: "Thank you for recently placing a Samsung Trade-Up order. After inspecting your original device, our team has determined its physical condition doesn’t match the details entered when you completed your Trade-Up. As stated in the agreed Samsung Trade-Up terms and conditions, we will be charging your nominated credit card $5."

    My phone passed all their tests, and had no scratches, cracks etc and I packaged it well (bubble wrap and the box the phone originally came in so I know it couldn't have gotten damaged in the post).

    I don't care about being charged $5, but I hope this doesn't mean that I'm in danger of being charged the $400 trade in by Samsung! :-(

    •  

      There's no danger. Asurion has nothing to do with the application of the trade-up bonus.

      Push back - they will accept the phone and refund your money.

    I bought mine in the previous deal (29/4) and I'm still yet to be charged for not returning my device.

  •  

    voucher is working again but they have upped the price of the phone.. starting price is $1249 instead of $1099 like in May.

    •  

      You mean stacking with the $400 trade-up? So phone is $649?

      Not much point otherwise.

  •  

    is it still possible to get the $200 voucher?

    •  

      If you have a past damaged phone that no longer works. They said they won't give codes to repairable phones.

  • +2 votes

    I managed to get a $200 voucher on first attempt earlier today. It does come with a lot of "conditions" but I was able to stack with $400. As mentioned above, the phone prices have gone back to the old prices so S21 Ultra is $1249 (assuming you keep your trade-in phone).

    Conditions:
    1. The Voucher Code is valid for purchasing products from the Samsung Australia website only. It will stay active for the next 7 days.
    2. This voucher codes are not applicable in any Samsung stores.
    3. When you click on 'Buy Now' on a certain device/model, you can enter the voucher code via the 'Add Promotion Code' field before checking out.
    4. Trade-Up Promotions - the voucher will NOT be stackable on top of the trade-up promotion value.
    5. If you have a device you are willing to trade-up, kindly visit this link for further details: https://www.samsung.com/au/tradeup/
    Updates on the webpage takes precedence over the above disclaimers.

    •  

      @Sena 86 Sorry I'm confused, in T& C its mentioned:
      4. Trade-Up Promotions - the voucher will NOT be stackable on top of the trade-up promotion value.

      However you said you were able to stack it!

      "I managed to get a $200 voucher on first attempt earlier today. It does come with a lot of "conditions" but I was able to stack with $400."

      Can you please clarify how to stack it? Thanks

      •  

        They will give you the spiel that the codes aren't stackable, but they are definitely stacking again.

        You need to enter the $200 code on the checkout screen, after you've run the trade up app on your phone.

        •  

          Thats awesome, thanks for responding. Can I further stack $50 voucher on it?

          •  

            @deals4amar: I've never been able to try get the $50 voucher, so haven't tried.

    •  

      I tried last night and they said they had no more as the promo had finished.

      Any hints on how you managed to get it :)

      Cheers

    So Asurion have charged me for both devices I sent back. Even after multiple emails to them and acknowledgement from them not to worry about the emails from them saying I have yet to send the devices back. So I have just lodged a charge back with the bank.

    Just did it now with a new 200 promo code, got the same warnings it wouldnt stack but it did. total $644 after trade in of an old samsung s7 to a new S21

    •  

      What coupon codes/ offers did you use?

      If you combined the $50 newsletter, $200 live chat and $400 extra trade-in (ignoring the initial trade-in value), the base S21 should come down to $599 from $1249.

      • +1 vote

        I used the 400 and 200. I never received the 50 sign up bonus

      •  

        If I am correct this should also stack with Samsung Finance offer for $150 off $1200 spend (maybe store credit, gift card or cash back but I'm not certain). It's on their website.

        I got as far as stacking all codes and trade in cart, but didn't have a Latitude credit card (5 card types listed). For new cards Latitude offer Go Mastercard as a free up front option with interest free period but it charges $8.50 per month. The linked one on site is Latitude Gem credit card with interest free but $99p.a. fee. Maybe worth it if squeezing more out of the deal

    599 done deal for s21 white 128gb (1249 - 400 - 200 - 50) wont bother sending in the old phone. The grey was out of stock.

    Shame i missed the 449 deal ive been looking at the trade in for a few months, that was a ozbargain. Rookies discounted $150 off the rrp but kept the regular codes going.

    •  

      Love too know how this deal works lol

  •  

    Is there a problem with Samsung trade in now? Trying to put in my trade-in ID and it says "Sorry, due to an error, trade-in service is unavailable at the moment". Really annoying.

    •  

      Read through this thread. Has been reported multiple times. If I remember the cause was due to people not putting their credit card details in the trade in app.

      •  

        The problem is not the trade in app. The problem is Samsung checkout cannot connect to Asurian to validate the code

        •  

          That's what it certainly seems like, but many people have reported the exact same error message and the reason was as mentioned. Don't know if it's the reason in your case, but based on results reported by others it's worth making sure you have provided the credit card details as required.

          •  

            @tbone74: Yes i put in my credit card and got past the validation and the app then produced the trade in code. I just can't put that code in to check out. Really frustrating with Samsung process.

    Has anyone else heard nothing weeks after their order? I ordered mine on the 16th of May- was a Phantom Titanium, so expected to arrive on the 6th of June, but still shows as customising.

    I'd also prefer to keep my old phone (S8+, given the offered trade in was laughable), but it's not really worth the risk of losing $400 if Samsung decide to follow up as they have in other jurisdictions.

    • +1 vote

      Same, also ordered Titanium. and expected date was 05/06. Has been at the customising stage for a couple weeks. Does also say typical order is 4-5 weeks to going to wait until then.

      •  

        I contacted them today as mine is still showing as customising. Said there's some issue with production due to demand from their HQ and no available ETA atm. Asked about changing order to an available model colour, and as expected, no dice. Just thought might be useful for you.

      but it's not really worth the risk of losing $400 if Samsung decide to follow up as they have in other jurisdictions.

      Where have they followed up?

      • +1 vote

        Firstly, I'm not trying to scare anyone and I have no idea what they will do. In North America on researching reddit forums there are a number of mentions of people being charged for their credit given (unclear if bonus or for phone trade in itself) multiple months after the trade in phone was processed, which to me suggests it would have been a bonus. I hope they do nothing, and if I was certain of it I wouldn't send my phone back, but personally I'm not willing to risk the $400, as in such a case I never would have bought the phone.

        Very hard to know locally as it is outsourced to asurion, but it would be good to hear from some reputable users who ordered during the early March deals on their experiences.

        • -3 votes

          We're out of the 2week return for any reason period but I have still not opened my samsung s21+ due to the risk they are going to try and get everyone for the $400. The main reason being My s8+ is pretty similar in day to say use, so not disadvantaged much, If I had got the Ultra I would have had to have opened it.
          I'd rather just try to return the phone if we get multiple reports of people getting charged the $400

        •  

          Fair enough. I purchased mine on 29/4 and haven't had any issues. Charged the $20 for my Pixel 2XL a week ago.

    Got charged the trade-in value of the phone even AFTER sending the phone via AuPost a few days after I ordered. Even tracked that it got delivered a few days later. Complained to them earlier about getting notifications of impending charges but they attributed those "automated" notifications due to COVID delays in delivery, their system not being up to date, etc.

    Sent them an email today about it and if I don't hear from them after a few days I will dispute this with my bank.

    •  

      When they send you an email asking for your TradeUp ID your case is finally being taken seriously. Send it in and If success, should take around a week after that to get an email saying your money has been refunded. Thats the process. Any issues start a charge back.

      •  

        I was wondering about this, if you followed their instructions and wiped the phone after new phone arrived, how would you still have a copy of the tradein ID?
        It's not on the samsung receipt or anything.

        •  

          The ID is in the email you receive when they notify you to return the device.

    My s21 keeps restarting randomly, on an average once a day. Tried safe mode and no issues. No concrete solution as such in google. Any pointers? Appreciate assistance….
