Best ways to save at Samsung’s Early Access sales event

Black Friday is no longer a day. It’s become a season. Retailers such as Amazon began offering discounts in early October. Now, Samsung is having its own early access sale. From now until Nov. 17, customers will have access to deep discounts along with substantial trade-in credits on some of the company’s most popular gadgets, such as phones and smartwatches.

What is the Samsung Early Access Sale?

The Samsung Early Access Sale is a week-long event that takes place in mid-November. There are two levels of savings that you can unlock depending on your status with Samsung: exclusive promotions and public promotions.

Exclusive promotions

If you signed up on a mobile device before Nov. 10, you have access to an exclusive set of promotions that are only available to Samsung’s Black Friday Reserve. These deals include discounts and enhanced trade-in credit on select models of Samsung tablets, smartphones, earbuds and watches.

Public promotions

If you missed the Nov. 10 sign-up deadline, that’s not a problem. You can still get deals and enhanced trade-in credit on select models of Samsung smartphones and watches.
