    Samsung keeps adding Galaxy S20 pre-order bonuses

    Samsung keeps adding Galaxy S20 pre-order bonuses
    UPDATE: We are listing all of Samsung's new Galaxy S20, Plus and Ultra preorder gifts and trade-in prices post-announcement below

    Believe it or not, the fact that they come as a gift with the Galaxy S20 series pre-orders isn't the only thing that the new Galaxy Buds+ will have going for them. The pair that Samsung is expected to announce next Tuesday, is scheduled to last the whopping 11 hours on a charge from the buds alone when you listen to music, according to leaked Buds+ specs.

    That's not all though, as Samsung augmented the pre-order registration page for the Galaxy S20 to include a bonus credit that will be good for purchases from its web store, so you can grab yourself a nice basic case to go with your new phone. 

    Initially, this bonus was only listed in the S20 pre-order registration signup notifications, and wasn't reflected on the website, but now Samsung has righted that wrong to let everyone know they can get $35 off just for participating

    The Buds+ will probably be at least a $160 value, if their predecessors are any indication, so the total bonuses you will get for grabbing the best of Android at launch time are nearing two Benjamins. We are fairly certain that there will be other deals on the horizon shortly after the announcement, as it usually happens when good things happen to those who wait.

    Samsung Galaxy S20, Plus and Ultra preorder gifts and trade-in prices

    • Free Galaxy Buds+ 
    • Up to $600 trade-in discount
    • $100 (S20), $150 (S20 Plus), or $200 (S20 Ultra) in Samsung store credits

    Samsung's own web store may not be the best place to get the new Galaxy S20 series, unless you are gunning for the unlocked version. That's because all the free gifts and extended trade-in values are also available if you get them from, say, the carriers stores or Best Buys, but those are also tacking on their own perks. Here's how much money you'll get for your aging phone when you swap for an S20 model during the preorder window.

    Samsung is way in over their head with this pricing. Not worth it, especially when prices WILL drop later.

    What a stupid statement to say Samsung is way in over their head. Especially since they didn't release the full specs, or prices for all the S20 models. It's pretty guaranteed that some S20 models if not all will support 5G, and support LPDDR5 RAM. Not even the iPhone 11's support LPDDR5 RAM. Samsung is one of the only OEMs that makes the latest LPDDR5 RAM. That combined with the 865 which supports LPDDR5 RAM, will be able to transfer 10 gigabytes per second more data than Apple's A13. Apple's Ax SoCs don't even support LPDDR5 RAM. Those are known facts about the SD 865 with LPDDR5 RAM. Plus Samsung gives you twice the base storage compared to Apple's iPhones.

    But Samsung runs android which can be experienced with other android phones at cheaper price, better spec and camera and better value pricing. Samsung should make their own OS before they can charged something like apple.

    All of that may be true and MAY even matter to people who hang out on forums or are 18, but to 99% of the buying public - it's just words. You think anyone who buys an iPhone cares AT ALL about specs or some benchmarks? Does the phone lag? If not, who cares about memory transfer speeds? I get what your saying but you or we don't represent even a fraction of the millions of people who buy each new model....All of the manufacturers are desperately trying to find ways to charge more for a product that is mature. Almost all of the new models for that last few years have been incrementally better not dramatically.

    Free stuff is good I guess but it's a bit of a "who cares" with Samsung - especially for phones that cost >$1,000 USD. I pre-ordered the S10+ last year and waited until late June to get the earbuds - almost 2 months after Costco had them in their stores for $20-30 off listed price....

    So you're complaining about how l ok ng it took you to get something that was free? You sound ungrateful. Then you complain about $1000 for a phone you chose to pay for, and you're complaining about getting g $160 headphones free too? On monthly payments $1000 is nothing. People who buy expensive things, unless they are rich; are use to paying for things over time. No one is making anyone pay $1000 for a phone. To say some phones are not worth $1000 when many have laptop capabilities is just mind-blowing.

    Yes, I am complaining and you make no sense at all! They don't have to provide ANY incentive but IF they are, they should be prepared to honor them. All I said was that I pre-ordered last year and it took over 3 months - closer to 4 to get the earbuds they promised. MONTHS after they were available (for 20% off list) at Costco. For a mindless Samsung fanboy you sure don't know much about how they handle promotions. I've preordered that last 3 and every time they screw it up. Year before it was a watch promotion that was never delivered to alot of people. Free items were eventually replaced with Samsung.com vouchers where you could spend $50 on a case, etc. I think the S8 had a $99 promo pack with msd card, headphones, etc., and fulfilling that was a train wreck for people... Along with the usual Samsung trade-in horror stories of people not getting the amount promised or Samsung claiming they never got their phone...

    Not enough. I would want the ultra, so at $1,400 I would only buy it if i got the phone, the earbuds, a galaxy watch and then a $200 dollar credit I could use towards the purchase of the phone.

    Usually when you trade in any working smartphone, you get $200 off. So even a really inexpensive cheap smartphone will get you $200 off. So earbuds, and depending on which model and when they release the prices. You will get a better indicator.

    For the tax you paid for, you are able to buy other phones..

    Samsung taxed on the total price after trade in and all other discounts. So around $50 to $70 tax.

    I'd prefer them to just charge $200 less.

    It's not good enough. $1400 + tax for $200 of stuff (which you can buy below MSRP anyway on the web) when the phone will drop 300-500 pretty quick inside 30 days. Preorders are never that good for the customer..

    The phones price isn't gonna drop $500 in 30 days. Maybe after a summer there will be a few 3rd parties offering them for around $1000. But you won't see $500 for at least a year and those prices will be on refurbs, not new in box. Just remember, you never have to buy a phone when it first comes out. You could wait a year, get one for 50% off and it will still be better than any other phone released for at least 3 years. Even the next 3 iPhone's are not gonna have a 108MP sensor with 10x optical and 100X digital. It will be at least 2 years before Apple has 5000MaH batteries n their phones, and no other phone on the planet will be as capable as he S20 is gonna be on any level whatsoever. I am most certainly jumping on the pre-order deal. Hoping VZW gets the 1TB option.

    You wait and see. You will see companies like Best Buy start to immediately reduce the price. Pre-orders are suckers play. You're paying maximum dollars because of a lack of patience

    Not just because of lack of patience. Samsung usually provides great deals for trade-in trying to switch, especially for iPhones. Last year they were giving $600 for iPhone 8 64Gb. There is no way you were able to sell used phone for this amount of money (of course if you are not selling to your grandma who wants to subsidize her grandson), even Apple were giving for iPhone 8 64Gb something around $280-$300. In this case it makes perfect sense because in fact you get huge discount. So last year to purchase Note 10 during pre-order you needed to pay around $300 with trading in iPhone 8, plus you were getting galaxy buds and cover (or wireless charger depending on what you choose)

    Because retailers can reduce prices and take loses to get buyers. Best Buy is like a carrier, they buy the phone for less than retail and sell it for as much as they can get. But the manufacturer isn't gonna sell then so cheap so fast. Most people in the US don't buy phone through retail stores. Most buy direct from carriers. When Best Buy sells a phone that is carrier locked, the carriers pays then. They aren't losing money no matter what kind if good deal you get.

    I agree that 30 days for $300-$500 off is not correct. However, you are also wrong for suggesting the phone would never be $500 off, even a year out, for a brand new model. BestBuy is already selling the Galaxy S10 5G which was $1300 when it was released for $600 today, brand new. That's a whopping $700 off the listing price and it hasn't even been a year yet.

    $700 off with Sprint activation. Without activation is $1350.

    I'm on bestbuy website and even the S10+ outright is $900, and your telling me S10 5G is 600? Are you full of bs?

    26. Dr.Phil

    Posts: 2578; Member since: Feb 14, 2011

    Speaking of the S10+, Samsung's own website is giving away a brand new unlocked 1TB version of the S10+ for $900. That's also $700 off the original listing price of the phone less than a year ago.

    Why pre order it when it’ll be like 400 bucks off a month later?

    2. Fred3

    Posts: 627; Member since: Jan 16, 2018

    It'll most likely be $550 off pre order like last year

    I hope you guys are right - that’s a heck of a phone. I want it.

    They aren't. It is costing Samsung at least $450 to make this phone. Considering that the Note 10+ was over $400 to make. At this article, the bill of materials for the Note 10+ was $420. The iPhone 11 Pro Max was $490. -https://www.techwalls.com/production-costs-of-smartphones/ A standalone camera with 10x optical zoom and 100x digital zoom starts at 199+ depending on brand. So shrinking that and making it fit into a phone is gonna double that price. Think how much tech it takes to shrink a 5000MaH battery down to 50% the size of the phone. Please show me a laptop with similar specs and see how much it costs, even without a camera. Today's Galaxy phone is as powerful and a mid-range laptop using an i5 CPU. A laptop of that caliper starts in the $800 range and goes up. Now you take that same power and make it pocket-sized. It s obvious its gonna cost more.
