This is annoying. Samsung cancelled my order, so I talked to them and they said to try again. Tried again - surprise, order cancelled again.

Did they give you a reason? Sent the deal to one of my friends and he was able to place the order successfully yesterday with the 20% off. (maybe i should ask him to check if it got cancelled)

I had the exact same strategy with Iphones when I was in school, but grew tired of ios and feeling like papa Apple was just letting me do things in their preapproved way (hard to explain through words, but the smoothness comes at a deep cost). I got an S10 in December for $0 on contract before they killed subsidies, but don't know where to go from here.
S10 is already kinda late, but someone out there will probably buy it for ~$700 right now. You basically MUST go from S to Note to S to Note... repeatedly. The schedule Samsung releases S and Notes is actually the core of this strategy.

You have roughly 1 month after the successor (S20) of your phone (S10) comes out to get rid of it without losing over 20%. 12 months after successor releases and you'll be losing 30-45%. But this is where the depreciation usually stops for about half a year before it goes way down to a 60% loss. Then it stops for almost a year and then 70-75% loss.

Because they're sending all your info to the Chinese government, who certainly subsidizes these companies in exchange for unlimited flow of information

Thanks for the tip, so basically I'd have sold my S10 in February, gotten a new (current/old) note, and the sold the note just as the new one was released, getting an s20 on sale and minimizing losses if I understand correctly?

S10+ went from $1200 to $400 in 6 months? Stop smoking those stuff in your hand.

Basically yes. However, Note 10/10+ sale was in November, so you would have sold the S10 earlier than that.

Huawei and Xiaomi do not care that much about individual consumers. At any rate, with Xiaomi and OnePlus, rooting is very easy and the custom rom community is abundant.

They don't know why it's being cancelled. They said to check my billing/shipping address, which of course is correct.

Great service...

Well, tried ordering 4 times and talked to 4 agents. Nobody knows why Samsung is rejecting my order, and there is no appeals/investigation process.

I ordered Buds+ a week ago when it showed instock. After a few days I chatted with a rep and they are on back-order until May 25th. It would be nice if they put that on their website.

I cancelled and went through TheSource EPP instead which shipped within 24 hours.

Sorry to hear that man, my friend ordered the phone Wednesday and he just got it today via Fedex. I'm not sure why they are giving you the run around. Are you seeing the same discounted prices?
