Here’s the Recall Deal Samsung Is Offering Note 7 Buyers

1 minute read

Samsung is offering credit to buyers of its Note 7 smartphone, which is being recalled amid reports the device can overheat and, in some cases, catch fire.

Samsung is incentivizing buyers to stick around by offering $100 in credit to shoppers who replace the device with another Samsung model. Note 7 owners who pick a non-Samsung phone, meanwhile, will only get $25 in credit.

Both offers are valid starting at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday. The funds, which come in the form of bill credits, are on top of the money customers will get for returning their Note 7 devices.
