Just weeks before the madness of finding a good deal begins, Samsung is boosting trade-in credit when you buy the Galaxy S23 Ultra or Z Fold 5, with up to $800 credit.
We tend to suggest pre-ordering if you’re going to upgrade for one simple reason – the trade-in credit. During launch events, Samsung offers some nice trade-in boosts to make the switch a little bit easier. It usually brings your trade-in values up by a couple of hundred dollars, which is a decent bonus when you want to upgrade.
For those who missed the pre-order train, Samsung is bringing some deals back, offering $400 boosts on some phones from the previous generation. For those who want to try the Galaxy Z Fold 5, this might be a good time to trade your S22 or S23 in for an upgrade to one of the best foldables available.
Depending on what you’re looking at, Samsung is handing out an extra $400 for some trade-ins, and even $710 if you’re moving from a Fold 3 to a Fold 5. Below is a full table of some of the trade-ins we think are worth taking advantage of.
Opting to buy a Galaxy Z Fold 5 is going to net you the best trade-in values during Samsung’s boost period. The Z Fold 3 is the biggest upgrade, getting up to $1,000 for a foldable that’s two generations old. If you were ever looking to upgrade foldable, that’s one of the best offerings we’ve seen.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra also gets some good trade-in boosts, with the S22+ getting you $600 back instead of $200. Keep in mind that Samsung is also boosting offers across the board for the S22 and S22+, as well.
Samsung is also extending some deals to the Galaxy Watch 6, giving up to $200 back for the Watch 5 Pro and Watch 4 Classic. If you head to Samsung’s web store, you can look through each early Black Friday deal and figure out a trade-in value for your device.
