Samsung’s pre-order trade-in offer for the Galaxy Note 10 – where you can trade in your old smartphone for up to $US600 – is still in effect, and there’s no telling how much longer it will last.

The company only says that the offer is available for “a limited time” and “while supplies last.” So far, as of Monday, Samsung will still let you trade in some select smartphones for $US600, effectively reducing the price tag of the $US950 Galaxy Note 10 down to $US350.

And as for the $US1,100 Galaxy Note 10 Plus, trading in certain smartphones will reduce the price down to $US500.

The devices haven’t been reviewed yet, so no one really knows if they’re any good. Still, $US350 for the Galaxy Note 10 and $US500 for the Galaxy Note 10 Plus appear like amazing deals. At the end of the day, however, pre-ordering a phone that hasn’t been reviewed does come with risks.

If you’re tempted by this deal, there are some things to keep in mind, of course. For one, the device you want to trade in has to be in good condition, and it must be fully paid off if you’ve been paying for it with a payment plan.

Check out which phones will fetch you that $US600 trade-in discount, and how much you can get with older models:
