Includes an AKG Y50Bt Bluetooth headphone in addition to the regular akg earbuds which was/is always included in the s8/s8+ boxes. These headphones costs around 100$. Not as good as the 323$ deal last week, but good deal if you can get the trade in and value the headphones at 70/80$


I own the Y50Bt headphones and they are pretty good sound quality wise and comfy

Agree. Both my trade ins were accepted without any issues though. Many had to go through the trade ins getting rejected issue and refund process is a pain.

Tempting to trade in my note edge or an s5, just don't want to get screwed


edit my note edge is not eligible and in the terms this does not sit well with me. "No device will be returned to you."

AKG headphones have always been included with S8s, since the launch, including from the $322 deal.

I believe (s)he is referring to another recent promotion

http://www.samsung.com/us/ "As a bonus offer, for a limited time, if you trade in a qualifying device (listed above) and purchase the Unlocked version of the Galaxy S8 or S8+ as part of the Samsung Trade-In Program, you will also receive a free pair of AKG headphones (model EO-Y50BTBLKAKG)"

if you look up this model number, you will found it is an on-ear Bluetooth headphone; not the earbuds in the smartphone box.

Fair enough. Seems these headphones are pretty good. Retail for $150-$180, around $120-$130 on Amazon. I would not value them that much as I don't need one, but other will value them closer to retail I assume.


OP should be updated with this promo.

Yes, but the in-ear buds are not the bonus headphones they're offering in this promotion. Included here are the Y50BTs, Bluetooth, on ear headphones. [akg.com]

The website is acting up. I can't get the unidays discount to activate either. Just gonna have to wait it for a fix I suppose.
