It’s Samsung pre-order day for the new folding phones, and this time around, Samsung isn’t subsidizing anyone with crazy trade-in values. In fact, outside being able to dump a whole pile of older devices that Samsung is graciously offering a minimum for, they’re pretty middle-of-the-road-to-bad — but you can stack up to four trade-ins. That’s more than the two we expected previously.

Featured offer: Get paid 10% more than your old phone’s worth with Decluttr

For complete details, check out our full write-up here. Then head on over to Decluttr’s website, type in some information about your device, and instantly see how much they’ll pay to take it off your hands, no shipping or processing fees necessary.

We may receive a commission for products or services you buy on this page. Additionally, any companies with “featured deals” paid for added exposure of their promotions.

If you’re looking for advice, most of the values Samsung’s offering today are just okay and nowhere near the outrageously generous numbers it offered earlier this year. Even considering an extra half-year of depreciation, Samsung’s not subsidizing things the same way they were before (probably due to declining profits and sales).

You can almost assuredly do better selling a phone yourself if it’s in good shape, probably to the tune of a 20% difference, if not more. But if that value is worth the convenience, or you’ve got some busted-up phones on hand, then maybe you should take advantage of the company’s offers, values for which are all listed below. Also note, if you registered early for the new Z Fold3 and Flip3, Samsung’s offering an additional trade-in bonus on top of the numbers we have, and that might make it really worth your while.

Samsung’s offering many more manufacturers and devices for trade-in now, and you can even do wearables or tablets (not listed above). A handful of the individual trade-in values are a little odd, like some older devices being worth more or way less than you’d expect. Samsung also did the OG Z Flip dirty, offering a mere $350, and it’s straight shafting Pixel owners — not only is Samsung not accepting any Pixel more recent than the 4 series, but it’s giving you a paltry $100 at best for it. In January, the company offered $350!

But, it’s not all bad. You can stack up to four trade-in offers now, and Samsung’s offering extra value for those that preregistered for the new phones — it looks like at least $100 toward a single device in your trade-in, but it can be more in some cases. If you see a different number when trading in your phone from what we have here, that’s probably why. Some phones can be stacked in trade-in a certain number of times, but others can only be offered once. Samsung will take up to three iPhone 12 Pros, for example, but only one iPhone 12 Pro Max, in my testing.

If either of the new foldables caught your eye, but the cost is keeping you away, maybe it’s worth checking to see what you can get for the phone in your pocket — or that old one in the drawer in the office. If you pre-registered, even a mediocre older device might get you a decent discount, though you’re probably better off selling it yourself, especially if it’s a Pixel.
