AT&T has a new trade-in deal in place, offering $200 in credits toward the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+.
Samsung's latest flagships are among the hottest smartphones currently available on the market, but all those high-end specs and features don't come cheap. Customers looking to trade in their old smartphone and get a brand new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ may find AT&T's offer quite attractive, so here's what you need to know about this deal.
AT&T Trade-In Offer For Samsung Galaxy S8 Series
AT&T's new trade-in promotion is a limited-time deal set to expire at the end of this month, so interested customers have until May 31 to take advantage of this offer. To get the $200 trade-in credit, customers need to hand over a working device with a trade-in value of at least $20 that meets the eligibility requirements of AT&T's program.
Eligible customers can then put that $200 in credit toward the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ through an AT&T Next installment plan or off-contract. The deal is valid both online and at AT&T physical retail stores.
AT&T Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Options, Prices, Terms And Conditions
Reading the fine print of this offer reveals that it's not an early upgrade program, it's just a limited-time trade-in deal with a limit of one trade-in per Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+ purchase.
Interested customers can send in their eligible device or hand it over at an AT&T retail store and they will receive a promotion card or instant credit, which they can use for the purchase of the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+.
AT&T offers the Samsung Galaxy S8 in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, and Arctic Silver color options at $749.99 off-contract, or in monthly installments at $25 per month for 30 months with AT&T Next or $31.25 per month for 24 months through AT&T Next Every Year.
The Galaxy S8+, meanwhile, comes in the same color options and costs $849.99 outright, $28.34 per month for 30 months with AT&T Next, or $35.42 per month for 24 months with AT&T Next Every Year.
"Trade-in does not relieve obligations under AT&T Next or other AT&T's Return and Exchange programs including recently-purchased device returns, Warranty, or Extended Warranty," adds AT&T. "Devices to be returned through these AT&T programs should not be returned via this program. Certain conditions and restrictions apply."
For more information, customers can visit a participating retail store or learn more online via AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S8 product page.
As a reminder, the latest Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphones just hit the market last month and they're off to a strong start, with the Galaxy S8+ model expected to outsell the regular Galaxy S8.
Depending on the eligible device for trade-in, customers could get even more than $200 in credits toward the purchase of a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. Other carriers will likely announce similar options soon as well, as Samsung's latest flagships are still in their early days on the market.
