You have to trade in a phone for this promotion. The Note 7 loyalty incentive is that you get more money back on the trade, then trading it in as a non-Note 7 user.
Oh, lol. Gotcha.

From SD:

To clarify... It can't be iCloud locked. It can't require someone's password to use. They don't care if it's locked to a carrier.

Yes, since you need to ship the phone to a US address.

Payment can be made with a US or Canadian Card, sadly, can't use PayPal.

I am a bit confused here. I pre-ordered the Note 8 off Samsung.ca back on the 25th but I don't see it anywhere on my order history page, even my bank account doesn't show a transaction or a pending transaction. But I do see on my Paypal a pending transaction for $1468.99 from Glentel Inc.

Is it normal for Samsung's site to not show a order or even a pending order? I haven't bought anything off of Samsung's site before so this is new to me. I'm just assuming that nothing is going to show until closer to September 15th when the phones are shipped out.

I chatted with a samsung rep but they want me to call and every time i call i'm put on hold so I thought I might as well try and ask you fine folks and see if anyone here have experienced it as well.

That is strange. Glentel operates the Bell/Rogers kiosks in malls (Wireless Wave & T-Booth) plus at Costco. I had no idea they had any means of charging via PayPal.

That's weird. I didn't pay by PayPal, but my CC has been charged right away, and I can see the order on my Samsung account. Do you have a Samsung account? Did you login before ordering?

Can someone hook me up with a Note 8 if you are getting it from the US? Don't want to pay for the MSRP here in Canada.

Also, anyone saw the LG V30 announcement and changing their mind?

Yep I made sure to login with my samsung account. I preferred Paypal for some reason instead of just inputting a credit card.

I'm just going to go ahead and re-order the phone and if I get billed twice then I'll just refund one then. Samsung's customer service bores me lol

That screen looks incredible. Unfortunately my work went with s7's so I have to wait awhile before we can upgrade.
