I have an S8+ with a cracked screen, it says $50 + $200 promo when preordering. Is this the best deal I can get?

Any possibility of better deals later this month?
any deal u get later on will be minus the $200 promo so prolly no difference

Exactly. Happens a month or two after launch.

How does this trade in work for preorders? It doesn't actually say how and where to trade in the old phone if you purchase online. Best Buy does not allow in store pickup for this preorder, for example. Would you have to mail it in? At whose expense? I've read that trade in document and can't find anything.
For Rogers, you pre-order online, and choose a store to pickup from, and take your trade-in with you at time of pickup.

Will Samsung stores have it on the 5th or the 8th like every other store?

If u preorder through Samsung online it says starts shipping on the 5th, which probably wouldn’t arrive till the 8th or later

If you preorder in store, the earliest you can pick it up is the 8th.

I pre-ordered it on Saturday at Sherway - they booked an appointment for pickup on the 9th (could have gone as early as the 8th). Apparently they're doing them all via appointments to make it more "civil" and avoid making everybody wait in long lines.

Sales rep let me know that the phone only needs to be working and turn on to allow for the trade-in which is done upon pickup. The cracked screen of my trade-in won't matter.

He mentioned there was 30% off cases if you pre-order, which I took advantage of, but then I get home and check the receipt and they charged me full retail so idk what's up with that. Worst case I just refund my order and go by something off Amazon. Maybe they refund the whole thing (along with the $50 deposit) on pickup and charge for the full phone + discounted case?

I ordered with Rogers and was number 62 in line, I just checked and saw this message:
"Shipping process has begun. Additional changes cannot be made. An email with shipping details has been/will be sent to you."
I'm sure I can pick it up in March 8th.

I meant if you preorder now and I guess it depends on which one? I selected the 1tb white which is Samsung store exclusive atm

International version. That is usually the case. And best part is that it's Dual Sim. If my phone wasn't being paid for by my company, I'd jump all over this.

EDIT: It might be cheaper because it uses the Exynos chipset designed by Samsung themselves. Meaning they don't have to pay as much to Qualcomm. But that's just me speculating
Remember though if you get the International version that the Exynos 9820 is supposed to be weaker in performance compared to the Snapdragon 855. I think for the savings it may be worth it as you wouldn't notice much of a difference during real-world use, but the rumor is that the Exynos 9820 is not as power efficient as the Snap 855...so that might make it a tougher call.

UPDATE: Looks like the eBay seller has different listings for both the Snap 855 and Exynos 9820 versions of the S10 128GB but at the same price of $799USD + $22.99USD shipping. No need to compromise anymore and both dual sim:

S10 - Exynos version: Exynos9820

S10 - Snap version: Snap855

It's only "up to". I would get $70 for my s7 edge. About the same I could sell it for, maybe less.

If u buy in Canada from a authorized store (Samsung), are you getting the snapdragon exynos processor?

When I last bought a Samsung phone it was the s7, and it came exynos.(which was better at the time than the snap s7)

Does any one know if it’s 855 version in Canada?
