Yep, was just talking to the Samsung dude at Bestbuy and he told me they will take any working tablet as a trade-in and give you $100 off a shiny new Tab S.

Not bad.

They give you a gift card now or when you do the pre-order?

Please remember that this was the Samsung dude at Bestbuy that told me this. Based upon my experience with them, they have little to no idea what is actually happening with their products. Case in point, whenever I go to my local Bestbuy, the Gear Watches are ALWAYS out of power and can't be tried. I asked the Samsung guy why the watch was out of power and he literally DID NOT KNOW how to charge it up.

Either these employees are the dumbest people alive or Bestbuy just hands them a "Samsung" shirt and zero training.

Regardless, I am hoping this $100 story is true, but consider the source. We'll see.

I called a BB store in Delaware and spoke to one of the Samsung rep. He stated that the $100 trade in offer is real but he thinks it's if you pre order the device at the store and not online. He also stated that the deal won't be there on launch day. He could be just trying to pull me in the store today but I'm going to try it and report back later.

The BestBuy Samsung reps are the worst of all. I literally have gone away from a conversation with one thinking, my god that was a stupid person. I've stood there as a Samsung rep tried demonstrating a product to another customer and it was clear they had no idea how the device functioned.
