The company has a trade-in offer of its own that'll get you up to $450 in savings when you trade in a qualifying device. The eligible devices include recent flagships from Samsung, LG, Google, and Apple.

No matter who you decide to pre-order your Galaxy Note 9 from, you'll get to choose a free gift: a pair of AKG noise-canceling wireless headphones or 15,000 V-Bucks to spend in Fortnite. You can also choose to get both gifts for $99.


The specs of the headphone:

Got questions?

What is the Samsung Work Smarter, Play Harder offer?

When will T-Mobile start shipping the Samsung Galaxy Note9 orders?

I ordered the new Samsung Galaxy Note9. Why haven't I been charged yet?

I just ordered the new Samsung phones for my family in different colors. Will each phone ship separately once it's available?

I purchased the new Samsung Galaxy Note9 and received a notification that my payment was declined. Does this mean my shipping/receipt of the device will be delayed?

512 GB model eligible for up to $500 off (not 50%0 via 24 monthly billing credits with qualifying Samsung trade-in.

No new lines required.T-Mobile ONE, T-Mobile Simple Choice Unlimited , Simple Choice 10 GB required to qualify for this promotion.

Charge Upgrade Fee for $20 inside the store.

First, T-Mobile store employees inspect your phone to make sure it is in good shape. It means no cracks, no water damage. Then they made a call on the phone to make sure it is working. Then they take down your phone imei. no. to the computer to trade in. Order your Note 9. Then ask your email to send you installment agreement to sign. I have to pay $391.71 (including the tax of the full price of the phone +Upgrade fee +shipping fee).

Inside the T-Mobile apps: tell you the status of the order and give you the link to print out the label for trade in phone. Sent it thru USPS. It is pre-paid. Sent to Assurant in York,PA. Have 30 days to return the phone to get the bill credits. Assuring is the insurance company for T-Mobile's phone. They also handle the return of the trade in phones.

I looked at my return mail sail last night. It said the trade value is $52. I called 611. They told me it will be $52 without this promotion. It is normal. Under this promotion, I will get $500 under this promotion. They told me no water damage, no crack screen. I will get $500 billing credit as soon as they received it.

f you pay off the EIP early you will still receive the monthly bill credits for as long as you maintain the other promotion eligibility requirements like keeping the line active.

Trade in phones must be on the list to qualify. Must be paid off and in good condition. No bad esn. cracked screen, No dent, ding. No LCD screen burn. Other Carriers phones are OK.

I called both 611 and went to the T-Mobile store. All they want is the phone only.
Need to log out Samsung account and Google Account. Reset to factory reset before send it back.

TAKE A FEW PICTURES OF THE PHONES IN CASE THEY ACCUSED YOU SENDING THEM A BROKEN PHONES.

I am going to trade in my Note 5 to get $500 credits towards the balance.

$279.99 downpayment +$6.99 shipping+$83.03 tax=$370.06 due today.

$9.16 monthly X24 months= $219.94 after 24 months bill credits.

I am going to return Note 8 tomorrow. I think it is a better deal. My note 5 is worth something $150 on eBay.

I think it is good deal to trade your Samsung phone (especially you have a Note 5). Note 4 is not too bad either. You can get $500 or $250 when you sell it on the eBay. S8+ sells for $400 in good condition when you sell on eBay.

How does this work?
Does it required T-Mobile One plan or can we stay in SC 5/$100 plan?

Also, I heard horrible news with them rejecting phones for small damage/issue. Mine has a tiny scratch on the corner, would l still qualify? Can someone who had experience with T-Mobile trade-in-device share how to solve that issue with them?

No, it doesn't need a new line. You can replace your current phone.

I get it.. but why did you buy a Note 8 2 weeks ago knowing the Note 9 was going to be announced? They're assuming, with this deal, it's mostly those who have had their phone for a while now and are looking to upgrade.

At that time, I didn't know I could trade in my Note 5 for $500. $399 Note 8 deal was good deal at that time.

Seems like best option if you own a Note 8, is to buy a Note 5 and trade that in. Then sell your note 8.

Buy Note 5 for 150-200 trade in for $500.
Sell Note 8 for 400-500.

Step 3. Profit?
