Forgive me if this has been posted as I searched and did not see it. Also, forgive me again for posting a Samsung.com deal as I feel dirty doing so. Smilie

With the BOGO apparently dead (yesterday was the last day I believe), Samscum, I mean Samsung....hehehe....has their newest promo out. Here it is.

Get a total of $300 off the Galaxy S8

Save $150 instantly, plus an additional $150 instant trade-in credit when trading in a qualifying smartphone.*

Galaxy Note5, S5, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S7, S7 edge
iPhone SE, 5, 5S, 6 / 6 plus, 6S / 6S plus, 7 /7 plus
LG G4, G5, G6
Google Pixel / Pixel XL

http://www.samsung.com/us/explore/galaxy-s8/buy/


S8 <> $725 - $150 instant = $575 ($460 w/ Unidays) Less $150 trade in = $425 Less Unidays discount = $381 (Thanks to member zuzuboy981 for confirming)

S8+ <> $825 - $150 instant = $675 ($540 w/ Unidays) Less $150 trade in = $525 Less Unidays discount = $474

I do not have Unidays therefore I cannot confirm the exact discount. Hope another poster can for us.

** Thanks to SD'ers cdudeman & zuzuboy981 we can confirm that the Unidays discount does indeed work. It seems to be somewhere inside of 10-12% off. - Thanks guys/gals **

Terms & Conditions:

** Please note that any trade in that is rejected will receive the customary minimum $25 value according to the T&C. I have a non-functional S5 and I wonder if they'd give me the $25 minimum for it.

** Thanks to poster cdudeman for checking, an additional savings can be had via Unidays (10-20% for those who have it - I do not so YMMV) I am not sure if phones are applicable for a certain cashback/E bate site, but currently that site is offering "up to" 8% cashback (YMMV) .

The trade in aside, this deal is as good as the BB deal, or better, if you qualify for the additional savings or discounts. My personal experience with Samsung from a recent BOGO offer was a nightmare, so buyer beware.

If anyone can help out on ways to get a .edu email, and/or how to open and use Unidays, please feel free to comment. I'm no help there.

This is actually a bit better than BOGO, as trade-ins are of lower value (iphone 5 ~$80) and the risk of declined trade-in is just $150 + the phone, vs ~$650+higher valued phone with BOGO. TU although this will be TDed into oblivion. Smilie

+ trade in value on open market. With 6.5% cashback, a $70 iPhone 5 and 10.1% sales tax, my calculation is $464 for an S8 assuming trade-in goes through.

Can someone offer any insight on buying a .EDU email on Ebay, and whether or not a Unidays account can be created with one? I never bothered getting an email account at my old college, cuz the internet wasn't quite what it is today back then. AOL dial up was the Google of the day, which says alot. I'm not sure if they would give a graduate one 20 years later. I see they are for sale on ebay for like $5. I'm just not sure if they are trustworthy. Anyone have any experience to offer?

382 is assuming you traded in a phone for extra 150 off.
without it, it's 382+150 = 532
I do not see how the OP math works out at all.

FWIW, Unidays is NOT 20% off at Samsung for phones. The OP has it wrong, which isn't surprising since he does not have Unidays.

If LG 4/ LG5 are listed, shouldn't they also include Nexus 5 / 5X in the deal. They are similar phones with similar resale price?
