Samsung paying its customers?
Uncategorized By PaulinePosted in
If ever there was an incentive to pick one company over another, Samsung may have found it. The top seller of smartphones in the world is now offering to pay their customers for their old smartphones, in exchange for the purchase of a new Samsung phone. The South Korean company is riding off the wave of a record $5.9 billion profit for the second quarter (Reuters), but that's not slowing them down any. With the release of the much-anticipated iPhone 5 just around the quarter, Samsung is working to find creative ways to stay on top, and they're offering money for the exchange of any type of smartphone, including iPhones. The offer is available through the Samsung Facebook page. Customers can get a quote online and then must purchase a new Samsung phone. They have 30 days to mail in their old smartphone, and will then be mailed a refund check. So what can one expect to get for their old smartphone? Let's take a look at some numbers from the Samsung Upgrade Program.
