Before anybody jumps all over this and calls it a duplicate, this offer is slightly different, as it is for getting minimum trade-in of $200 for Flip3 and $300 for a Fold3 if you pre-ordered from a Canadian carrier.

Carriers are also offering pre-order bundle of FREE Galaxy Buds2, Wireless Duo Charger and the S Pen Fold Edition (only with Galaxy Fold3 5G).

Trade in your old smartphone and get a credit up to $785 towards the purchase of a Galaxy Z Fold3 5G or Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
1. Complete Purchase of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G or Galaxy Z Flip3 5G at a participating authorized Canadian carrier or retailer by October 4, 2021.
2. Begin Online Process: Go to galaxyupgrade.ca to begin the trade-in process for your old smart phone.
3. Complete Online Form with all of the required information including proof of purchase of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G or Galaxy Z Flip3 5G by October 4, 2021. If your old smartphone meets the trade-in requirements, you will be sent a pre-paid waybill by email.
4. Receive your credit. If you pre-ordered between Aug 11 – Aug 26, 2021, ship your old smartphone to the address on the waybill by Sept 10, 2021. If you purchase between Aug 27 – Oct 4, 2021, ship your old smartphone within 14 calendar days of receiving your waybill.

The carrier prices are a joke, buying from them is like actually horrible. I don't fully understand why the prices are so high, but they are, making it way better to just get it subsidized via that company Samsung is partnered with if you can't outright buy it.

Highly recommended not buying these at the carrier. They inflate the retail price of every single phone (androids by a lot more). Just get it from Samsung and use paybright

Paybright is the company Samsung partners with to do financing. So instead of paying x to carrier over x months. It's paybright. You can use a bank account or credit card to pay the balance everymonth

I would tend to agree that buying from the carrier isn’t the best option, but if that is your only choice or you do it for business purposes, there’s an opportunity to recover some money. So why leave anything on the table, right?

I have had 0% when ordering on Samsung in the past. There is a credit check

Edit: the inquiry from paybright shows on my Equifax score, but not my TransUnion. Not sure if that's the same case for everyone though

With a subsidized/installments phone, carriers will definitely do a credit check before they complete the order. The only "collateral" is the phone itself and your good word (provided you have decent credit) to be approved for the payment plan.

Either way, a credit check is inevitable unless you buy the phone outright.
Why settle for full retail price when you can wait and get it at a lower price for better value (even better if there's a bundled freebies deal)? 😉

After a few purchases directly from Samsung (oftentimes with a really good Rakuten cashback offer), I found that Samsung can be quite competitive. Some of their deals are a bit of a hassle since you have to mail back things or fill out certain forms, but it is what it is.

Haven't used Paybright, but the terms are likely much better than borrowing from your credit card and the interest does not compound.

Carriers have the advantage of ease of convenience and support if your phone goes bad, you have a carrier store that you can visit to help you troubleshoot your phone and send it back for repairs. Because of overhead like having a store, rent, inventory, and payroll, (and of course profit) there has to be a premium over MSRP. Plus your carrier will likely charge an activation fee to activate a new phone.

I generally buy mine at a discount by waiting for deals or a very special launch/trade-in event. Haven't been on a contract for quite a few years now and feels very liberating. If you have a kickass plan, try to upgrade your phone buying it outright or using something like Paybright.

Phones are getting too expensive and you are now stuck without a charger out of the box, it pays to keep your phone as long as possible. The Fold and Flip are early adopter products for sure that command a high price because of the novelty and to recoup R & D costs. Credit to Samsung for lowering the launch price with hot trade-in deals if you pre-ordered.

If you must go through your carrier, then this may be a decent deal.

Yes, if you’re just looking for the straight up best price, this is not the deal for you. But if you’re in a situation where you must or still prefer by from the carrier, this is something that isn’t widely advertised by Samsung by or the carrier.
