If you are looking for a good deal on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, a visit to your local Microsoft Store might be your best choice. It offers up to $ 650 in credit when you trade in an eligible phone for a new Note 10 or Note 10 Plus.


How much you get in return, of course, depends on the device you want to trade in. Microsoft gives the most to iPhone users, perhaps in an effort to trick iOS users into an Android phone that will, admittedly, help you do a lot of things with built-in Microsoft productivity tools and useful apps such as your phone.

Microsoft offers up to $ 650 for phones in the iPhone X series, including the iPhone X, XR, XS and XS Max. You can get a respectable $ 450 credit for your iPhone 8.

In addition to iPhones, Microsoft also accepts other Android phones for trade-in credits. Recent devices such as the Galaxy S10 from Samsung, the Note 9 and the Google Pixel 3 can each receive $ 650 in trade-in credit. Even slightly older models, including the Samsung Galaxy S9, Note 8 and Pixel 2, can get $ 450 off the cost of a new Note 10. You can see if your phone is in the list here.

This deal ends on September 22 and you must visit a Microsoft Store in your area (it is not available online) to take advantage of it. To receive the claimed trade-in value for your phone, you must purchase the Note 10 or Note 10 Plus at the time of exchange.
