Samsung Galaxy S10+ Pre-Order Not Available In Ceramic

Wanting to pre-order the Galaxy S10+ 512gb but it's not giving me the ceramic option. I see it's there, but it's not allowing me to select the option.

 

Also, there's no mention of the wireless ear buds when pre-ordering.

 

What the heck gives Best Buy?!?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S10 Series and Watch Active FAQ

I was reading through the s9 thread and saw that the s9 also had a trade in bonus, along with this post:

 

"Upon trading in your phone, the gift card can be used to pay down the balance of your new device which will reduce your overall monthly payments."

 

Is that the case for the s10 and note 8 trade in promo? I would like to pre-order 2 s10+ and trade in my note 8 that is worth a $550 best buy gift card, but only if I can use that $550 gift card towards one of the phones, or split up over both.

 

how would that work if I pre-ordered in store? would I have to trade in my phone now and go without a phone until 3/08, or would I pre-order and go to the store on the 8th and trade it in then?

 

thanks.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S10 Series and Watch Active FAQ

On the Trade-In Offer for the Galaxy S10 and S10+, it says that the trade-ins are valid in store only. I just wanted verify that I can pre order online for the 100$, and pick up at the store and do the trade in then to further reduce the price?

Also, the "Save up to 650$ Offer:" says it's good thru 3/7/19, does that just mean the extra 100$? 

 

These two things combined have me believing I won't be able to trade in my phone for the 300$ it's estimated at (S8+) if I don't trade it by the 7th.

Hi there,  JaredSelf, 

 

You should have the option to apply the trade-in amount toward your new S10+ but you will need to visit your local store for the pre-order so that they can ensure everything goes smoothly.

Hey, Sumsrsbzness, 

 

The promotion for Save up to $650 ends on either March 7 or the release of the phone, whichever is earlier. This means that you will need to have placed your pre-order before the date the promotion ends to take advantage of it. 

 

I recommend placing your pre-order in-store if you plan on taking advantage of the trade-in promotion as well. They should be able to ensure the pre-order is placed in the best way possible for you to take advantage of both promotions.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S10 Series and Watch Active FAQ

So to clarify, you're recommending that I cancel my online preorder in lieu of a in-store one to mitigate the possibility of not being eligible for the trade in offer?
Does best buy accept trade ins outside the window of this offer?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S10 Series and Watch Active FAQ

Sumsrsbzness,

 

If you are not planning on using the gift card toward the price of the phone, then I recommend keeping your online pre-order. We do accept trade-ins year round, but the values given during this promotion will not always be available. For this trade-in bonus, we are not requiring trade-in prior to the pickup of your new Samsung S10 Series phone. You would trade-in on the same day you pick up your pre-order if you were interested.
