I tried to add the dummy phone but it's $0 value. They only accept dummy smartphone?
Mine is a flip phone.

Help please. Trying to get the $200 min bonus.

Get a beater smartphone off Kijiji for $5 - $20, if the theory goes that they'll take any modern smartphone post-2007 for $200 credit, then you're set.

What is the galaxyupgrade site? Why is that different from just entering the phone you want to trade in at the checkout page?

The phone will have $0 trade but should a trigger the $200 bonus. Take a screenshot once you've added the trade in to your order.

They probably don't have the ability to do that. Should have asked for something else like a coupon for the galaxy buds or other accessory discount. They likely have internal codes that they can give for discounts on these things

Let me see if they respond further and I'll go from there.

Isn't the financing more expensive in the long run? You have to pay a premium

I believe as long as it's paid within a year the fee is waived.

There has been between 110-160 dollar price drop on this phone since Huawei released their phone today. My deal pertains to the s10 plus 128gb but the s10 has also dropped in price.

So when combined with the bestbuy $360 dollar trade in special, this phone can be had for significantly cheaper than the p30 pro.

Just yesterday the large tab price was 860, now it is 700 today. So combine this with the $360 dollar trade in special, your paying $340.

Also when you get the geeksquad accident insurance for 3 months at 16 per month, they offered another 100 dollars off. You can cancel after 3 months. They offer this to everyone. This is like another 52 dollars off, on top of having accident insurance initially.

700 on large tab
- 360(with any phone including 0 dollars(just not blacklisted)
- 52(geeksquad bonus)
= $288

Add the large tab(if you cancel, which I won't because I want to stay on koodo's good side) add 480 and your paying $768 + activation fee

I was also able to get $100 dollar giftcard because my preorder came so late, so if you have a preorder at bestbuy and haven't picked it up yet, you can get this since I heard this was nationwide. Lastly I got them to throw in a $40 dollar credit towards any case. These two things are definitely case specific.

If you want this phone soon, I would get it today because I don't know if the $360 trade in will last after tomorrow since new promos start every Friday and the $360 dollar trade in banner has been scrubbed from the site. Don't forget to sign up for the referral bonus(before starting the transaction for koodo) which gives your 50 dollar credit on your bill and the original referrer.

S10 + white 128gb

Traded in a old windows phone that original msrp was 50 dollars. Basically a worthless phone.

As per the geeksquad plan, they also throw in a screen protector with a lifetime warranty which is worth 30 dollars and this warranty continues even after you cancel the geeksquad plan. This all includes installation for each application and from my use, the screen protector works very well in terms of fingerprint sensor sensitivity.

It's a large tab though, so you still have to pay a larger monthly fee
