Search here: https://www.samsung.com/au/tradeup/
what happens if not sending the old phone?
Read the previous threads
Here we ask again
They just add the value of the agreed trade-in to your credit card.
So, you get the trade-in bonus and keep your old phone.
I didn't send one before when buying s21 ultra and they charged me only the trade-in value, the bonus stayed. But some people recently pointed out that wording of the terms changed and it suggests that the bonus might be charged this time. I was still not charged anything for my flip purchase from ~3 weeks ago (for not sending the phone) so I can't confirm what happens.
I did the Fold 3 deal a few weeks/month ago, so far I've only been charge the trade-in phone cost from Ausurion, no other changes on bonuses/vouchers. AFAIK its with the most recent T&C's
Did they notify you before charging you?
@edrift: A bunch of emails warning about the charge (and how much they'll charge) but that was about it. Nothing in the email about the admin fee / vouchers etc.
Did they send you anything with the phone like a return mailbag? We did not get one from the last flip 3 day a couple of weeks or so ago.
@cykezero: Nah, I got sent an auspost label to print out via email.
@lookaneagle: Ah ok, I assume it's return postage paid?
@cykezero: Yeah its paid, i think the post office provides the packaging if i remember correctly (i did a trade-up a year ago)
@lookaneagle: Maybe they were better then. No email and neither Samsung not Ausrion are willing to take responsibility for sending one out
@cykezero: Even better, I think some people have slipped through the radar and never got charged/requested their phone back, maybe check past posts on the other deals. I think I got my email as soon as Startrack delivered it, titled "xxx, time to return your device".
@lookaneagle: Yeah I haven't read that yet but then again there are a lot of posts to read!
I suppose if we haven't been charged and it's been 2 weeks we might be in the clear.
Nah. They are charging the trade in amount and the admin fee of $60 or $70. Not the bonus. You get the bonus.
You sure ?
@ubcool: Nah the king is confused no 60 anywhere
yes, I found the current wording is:
"If you do not to return your device in 7 days , you will be automatically charged the value of the trade-in credit plus a $60 (AUD) administration fee. Samsung may also charge you for any additional bonus credit which was applied to your order."
Wondering if you were charged by that $60 admin fee?
@sanrs where did you see this sentence? I couldn't find it in samsung's terms and conditions
just got my last warning from samsung:
"Please ensure you return your device within the next 48 hours, otherwise you will be charged a non-return fee of $10 to your nominated credit card."
I am keeping my iphone 7 and parting with $10
In my case I never received any instructions on how to send the old phone in, and it's been over a week now. I guess I've slipped through the cracks somehow.
Based off previous threads though you get charged the value of the trade-in and maybe some admin-fee of $60. There is a warning on the website that says you may get charged the trade-in bonus but I don't think anyone's been hit by that yet.
Some are still waiting deliver and they are selling again.. hmm….
The $ symbol goes before the numbers, OP
50 dollar or 50 cent?
remind that no more vouchers can be applied this time,tried but not work
Did you try to add something to your cart before applying the voucher? I had to last time
Not even the $50 signup voucher?
Should work if you add something else like a cable or case.
EDS code doesn't stack, it kills the trade in credit
Guess my birthday is today 😁
Using mine now from the last deal. Just set it up so can't comment on battery life.
Im sure it is as hot as pie!
Not as tasty though
Installed the Samsung Trade-Up with the Pixel 3 and got "We're sorry but your device is ineligible for the Samsung Trade-up program"

Anyone know if this is a good upgrade from the note 10+? I've seen the specs and feel it's pretty similar but wanna get other opinions too
Does the omission of the microsd card slot matter to you?
🥲 probably not
I was on the same predicament at the last jbhifi deal - was comparing both the flip and the pixel 6 pro since my note10+s battery was going cactus and just used it as an excuse to change.
Between the Flip and the Note10+, found they were pretty much similar - i.e. screen estate, the camera, the quality of the screen - but obviously you lose the stylus and microsd card.
bonus points for having a proper snapdragon processor rather then the exynos (assuming you got the AU version). Sure the note 10+'s exynos was fine for day-to-day use but it definitely struggled with genshin impact.
perhaps head down to jbhifi/sansung kiosk/mobile phone shop to play around with it to see if it suits your needs?
In the end - i got a pixel 6 pro. i personally couldnt get over the screen crease, but i do love that flip form factor…
@l4nn13: Relevant story! I too play genshin impact. I got the AU version sadly. Thanks for sharing, don't think I'll get it cause I do enjoy my super fast 45w charging.
Let's see what deals we get with the S22 👀
brah, same shit. "Sorry, due to an error, trade-in service is unavailable at the moment". Selected Online and used incognito mode.
got a reply from chat, said has to be credit card. even though it validated, it won't go through if is not a credit card….
I used a visa debit card from the last deal with no issues.
@Tohnio: Yep can confirm is the issue with imei. The support doesn't know.
Happened to me after using imei that was already used before, try a new one.
Won't work if you have used that phone for trade in before.
So lowest you can pay is 499 for 128gb? Even if trade in device is worth say $400
That's the maximum you'll pay, if your device is $400, you'll pay $99.
No, in that case you only pay $99.
No if your device is worth say $100 you will get that plus $500 bonus credit making it $600 trade in all up
minus bonus credit $500
minus Trade value $100
You pay $399
My device is worth $695, I have to pay $404.
Got this from the last deal - love the phone and the battery has been good so far
Ive got it and the battery seems about the same as my 3 year old Note 9. But at this price it certainly isn't a deal breaker and I was already used to leaving phone on charge at work/home.
hows the camera compared to the note 9?
From a layman pov, there was a noticeable improvement in camera from note 9
just curious, how long does the battery lasts? its only 3300 mah
I have over a day on general usage. As always i turn off most app notifications, turn down screen brightness. General usage includes calls, texts, internet browsing and music through Amazon
I received mine from last deal and really like it. It is so much lighter than my pixel 6 pro. It is also more friendly for one hand use. The battery life is not that great but it isn't a big issue for me.
I didn't find the battery on Pixel 6 pro that good either. I fee like charging with Samsung 45W charger takes longer (close to 2 hours to full) than 18W Pixel charger (23W is Max apparently which is too slow for 2021/2022)
Totally agree with you on the pixel 6 battery and charging time. Google cheaped out this gen and the hardware is really under par. I really missed the days when Huawei was competing for the high end market.
These will drop in value quicker than we expected
I don't get the bonus $500 credit applied at checkout.
Only the trade in credit for the phone.
Did you put in any other code? take them out you should see the 500 credit.
No other codes.
Only the Trade In code.
Same, when I will trade in my s21+, can't get bouns $500 off..
It happened to me in the last sale. Keep trying or else try a different browser or laptop. It will work
Got my phone last week and the external display already has a scratch on it and I've been VERY careful with the phone. Gorilla Glass Victus is rubbish. Anyone got a screen protector for the external display they can recommend?
Oh, and coming from a S10 with a 3400mah battery I'm actually pretty happy with the Z Flip3 battery life so far. Expected it to be rubbish.
They've offered me $695 on my S21Ultra, so I should get the $500 trade-in bonus, but they want $404 from me today.
So, if I don't send my phone, they will charge my card the $695, and I end up paying $1099?
What happened to the trade-in bonus?
That doesn't sound right. The starting price is $499 with as long as you have trade-in activated (any phone). Not sure what happens when your phone value is higher than the remaining value….
That's what I was thinking too; what if they actually owe me money!
I would just ask the support to confirm.
@kekw: I am trying my best. Was 16th in the queue, and it booted me when I got to #1.
@gasman70: welp thats gg…
Starting price for me is $999.
The $500 bonus is not applied.
The S21 Ultra 5G gave me a $510 trade in bonus. So they applied that to $999 -$510
What happens if you add something extra to cart so that the value > $0?
Getting: Sorry, due to an error, trade-in service is unavailable at the moment
Issue with code. delete app, restart phone, re-install and try again. I had to do few times, mostly it happens when same IMEI is used too..
Now, where to get a case for it that are not $60? Any recommendation is appreciated.
I've purchased this one based on a previous recommendation but it hasn't arrived yet so no idea if it's a keeper or not https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/265298203046?var=565156281953
