Samsung Galaxy Note 3 coming to Radio Shack Oct.4, trade in your old Note and save some cash

Everyone is aware that the Galaxy Note 3 hits stores starting October 4, but Radio Shack is the first third-party dealer to jump up with a better deal — if you have an old Galaxy Note to trade in.

The Sprint and AT&T models of the Galaxy Note 3 will be on sale at participating Radio Shack locations, and folks who show up with a Note 2 to trade in will get $175 off the cost of their upgrade. Folks with an original Galaxy Note will get $100 off.

You could probably get more for your old devices on Craigslist or eBay, but this no muss, no fuss offer will attract a lot of people. Time is money, after all.

For more information, visit Radio Shack's Trade & Save site.

  • That's not bad but Best Buy trade in at a good condition level is $250 for the Note 2. Craigslist would be better but no fuss money is hard to pass up. Posted via Android Central App
  • Note 2 in this area will fetch $350 minimum in good condition on Craigslist. This deal would only make sense if your current Note has a cracked screen or is otherwise unusable.
  • Or you don't want to mess with Craigslist, some people have no issue with paying for convenience.
  • Yeah, two types: rich people and stupid people.
  • Um, OK. Not really but whatever makes you feel superior I guess.
  • ^^^^^^ this
    I mean, $125 is a little steep for a convenience charge.
    Even ticket master saw this and said people are getting ripped off!
  • Then go to BB, the guy up top said they are giving 250. Someone not wanting to screw with craigslist doesn't make them dumb or rich, it just means they don't want to screw with craigslist.
  • I wasn't talking about BB. I replied to the root of the thread. By the way, I forgot s third type of people: lazy people.
  • $175 for a Note 2 that's less than a year old? That's an insult.
  • +1 I was able to sell mine for $400 unlocked, 9/10 condition, and a case included on Kijiji in Canada. Rogers offered me $130 for it and I laughed out loud. What a joke these trade in prices are.
  • Sold my note 2 on eBay for 525. Posted via Android Central App
  • Nice. That is more than I paid for mine last November.
  • Don't forget, getting low balled is the whole point of a trade in. These companies are looking to use these devices, they are looking to sell them for a profit.
    It's different then going online and selling on Craigslist or Kijiji where you are usually going to sell to another end user.
    Make sense? Posted via Android Central App on my Note 2!
  • I guess I'm one of the few weird people that keeps the old phone for other family members.
  • I put mine in new projects. Who needs a Raspberry Pi when I have an old LG Revolution laying around!
  • Still waiting for nexus 5... Posted via Android Central App
  • You have a month Posted via your wifes, girlfriends phone
  • I'm going to stand in front of Radio Shack and offer $175 cash for anyone who is stupid enough to take this deal.
  • You'd probably reel in more than one sucker. A lot of people jumping on this "deal" have zero impulse control.
  • Good idea. Posted via Android Central App
  • For a commercial store to offer $175/$100 for a 2yr/1yr old phone is a great deal. Selling anything privately will yield more money... Verizon offered me $20 for my 18 month old Galaxy Nexus. Now THAT is an insult.
  • Lmaooooo tf!! That's a real insult Posted via Android Central App
  • I wouldn't take less than $200 for my Note 1. It's practically brand new and in perfect condition. Anyone that would take this deal apparently has never heard of eBay. Posted via Android Central App
  • Wait....trading in a Note II will only get 175.00. Since it is only a year old I would think people would not have an upgrade to use unless they had one on another line. Then you are talking full retail price which is 724.99. That wouldn't even make a dent in it.
  • I agree, I have mine on Craigslist for 400$ but no luck yet just some low ball offers Posted via Android Central App
  • I could get a better price just bringing the phone in to Sprint.
  • I just saw it, the galaxy note 3 is 249.99 at radioshackwireless.com for sprint.
