My thoughts exactly and also because of people mentioning a $200 trade in on top of 10% off with SPC in the Samsung thread.
If they had that min trade in for any old phone, similar to what they had when I got my S9+ I'd go that way no questions about it. I read somewhere for the Note 9, Samsung had an offer in Sept where they brought that back and it qualified for early adopters as well. So my thinking is shifting from, do I get it now and risk losing the buds if there's no trade in promo. Or do I risk waiting for the trade in promo and it might not happen.

Or, because there's so many complaints about the no headphone jack (which imo yeah it's sort of a big deal, but i haven't used one in 3 months and it feels great) that the Note 10/ + wont sell as well and they will have crazy promos, SOL for early adopters.

I am 100% sure Samsung will have better deals a few weeks post-launch. the way these devices are priced, they cant sell many unless they cut the price substantially. Initial skimming can only take them so far..

I am just sitting tight for a better deal around iPhone launch

For some odd reason the pre-auth charge on my card for the note 10+ disappeared.

The order still shows as processing on Staples website but that doesn't mean anything from history of orders.

The $200 trade in promo for the Note 9,and then again for S series in March, (and may have been for s9 1.5 y ago and Note 8 2y ago, can't recall) was for preorders, and yes, the same promo carried through the post launch for 2 or 3 weeks.

However, as mentioned, in all cases the trade in promo was already in place when, or very soon after, the reveal, for pre orders first. It's been a week since the announcement and still no $200 promo.

Doesn't mean they won't add the promo still before launch, or after launch, but previous history shows they didn't give something to post launch people that wasn't available to prelaunch orders.

Not sure when $1500 phones became a "deal". Price is at least $700 over normal. If you want it, I get it, but these phones are getting more and more expensive every year.

No phone should cost more than 350-500.

Companies like Google did it before but why sell it for 500 when you can just as easily sell it for double that now.

The unfortunate thing is most people just want the latest and greatest simply because so they know that these phone will sell at what price they set.

The phone manufacturer industry needs a Freedom Mobile type company to come and disrupt the phone market.

"The bonus Samsung Galaxy Buds will either be provided at the time of pick-up of your pre-ordered device or delivery may take up to 4 weeks depending on the redemption mechanism" This is the same snippet used on the Samsung site, as well as some of the telecoms.

If for some reason Staples doesn't ship the ear buds with the phone, I'm hoping we can request it through Samsung. Based on the experience that has been posted here with the Staples CRS's, I'd rather not deal with them.

100%. best case is Staples figures it out and ships it with the phone. At this point, i don't have a lot of confidence in that happening.
