[Samsung] [System Glitch?] Galaxy S20 5G 128GB for $774.98 before tax with trade-in + Free AKG Y500 Headphones

This is my first time for posting something on RFD. If I made any mistakes here, please let me know so I can correct them. Don't give me a hard time too much haha.

It is possibly a system glitch. Currently, Galaxy S20 5G is $120 off on Samsung.com/ca. In addition, they are doing a trade-in promo for up to $250 for trading any phone. Supposedly, the maximum trade-in bonus we would get for a S20 purchase is $175. However, when you make it to the checkout page, it applies a trade-in bonus $425 instead of $175, making the price of the phone, $774.98. On top of that, you get a free pair of AKG Y500 Headphones. Samsung quickly confirmed my order, but I'm not 100% sure if Samsung will honour my order since it is a system error.

Update 1. My order status has been changed from Processing to Preparing Dispatch. I will keep you guys updated.
Update 2. The grey color is sold out. They still have the blue one. All the headphones are gone.

Thread Summary
Trade-in works for any phone with a valid IMEI. YMMV as some have reported their phone did not give them the extra $425.

If your phone is not listed: Click on Other > Other Other

The free headphones pop up after you click the Checkout button.

I'll get hate but best way to have them honor it is to not post it on RFD until it's shipped.
Thanks OP, bought 25!

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Was able to replicate this with S10 as a trade in device. But won't they just able to deny the trade-in?
Do you have to trade in the exact phone with the exact IMEI number as I submitted?

When I clicked the checkout button, a window popped up about the free headphones. Here is a screenshot.

I was able to replicate the trade in discount with a note 10+, but I didn't see anything about the headphones.

Edit: Nevermind, saw the headphones pop up after hitting checkout button like one of the comments said.
