Samsung Electronics Singapore has launched an initiative called Samsung Smart TV Trade-In so that you can replace your older models with newer ones.
How to trade-in
The catch here is that you need to purchase at least a 55″ Samsung UHD TV or above to be eligible for the trade-in.
When Samsung delivers your new TV, they will then assess your old TV’s trade-in value. Thereafter, you will receive the trade-in value via bank transfer either through your local bank account or PayLah.
Steven Koh, Director, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore said:
“At Samsung, we go further to enhance our consumers’ experience. With the Smart TV Trade-In initiative, we are making it easier than ever for consumers to own and enjoy our latest TV innovations. Our trade-in program is designed to offer maximum value and convenience to consumers, and provide them with unique perks and features such as SmartThings, smart connectivity and an array of global and local entertainment, on our Samsung Smart TVs.”
How do I know if my TV’s condition meets the trade-in requirement?
Akin to trading in smartphones, we’ll never really know for sure the exact condition of our devices that is eligible for trade-in. But based on Samsung’s simplified guide below, what we concluded is that you need to make sure that it’s not an old TV and has only minor defects.
|Eligible for Trade-In||Not Eligible for Trade-In|
|TV in good or perfect condition||TV with defects like having cracked screen and lines on the screen|
|TV with minor defects, i.e. burn marks, image flicker, dead pixels and faulty backlight||Plasma TVs|
TV Trade in Price Guide
The trade-in price guide is valid for the purchase of selected 55” and above Samsung UHD TVs from 30 May 2019 to 30 June 2019, and valid for 30 days from purchase of the selected Samsung TV. The last date of the trade-in is 30 July 2019. Trade-in price may vary from the guide provided, depending on the condition of the trade-in TV. The trade-in price guide is indicative and is subject to changes without prior notice. Terms and conditions apply.
If you are interested in trading in your old eligible TVs as part of the Samsung Smart TV Trade-In initiative, you can head down to any of their authorised retailers to buy your new TV and enjoy the trade-in benefits.
