Samsung kicks up its Note 7 recall by offering $100 off another Galaxy phone

If you decide to pick up a new phone from another brand, Samsung will only offer you a $25 credit.


Samsung has announced it will issue a $100 credit for those who plan to exchange their explosive Galaxy Note 7 for another Samsung device, such as the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. If you decide you’re done with the Samsung brand, the company will still give you some money back for switching to another brand, although it’ll only be $25.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 owners can also still request a full refund for their purchase, although we’re not sure if customers would be comfortable with a pocket full of cash and no phone to brag to their friends about their newfound wealth.

“We appreciate the patience of our consumers, carrier and retail partners for carrying the burden during these challenging times,” says Tim Baxter, president and chief operating officer at Samsung Electronics America. “We are committed to doing everything we can to make this right.”

The new options will be available starting at 3pm ET today, which means you’re going to have to keep your ticking time bomb a bit longer before you can score a new phone and either a $100 or $25 bill credit.
