Samsung Electronics South Africa announced its Smart Trade programme in a press release on Thursday, 20 February 2014.
According to Samsung, the service will see consumers trade a variety of old smartphone devices for discounts on a new Samsung phone.
Samsung said that a large number of handsets will be considered as part of the trade-in programme.
Devices will be graded on current condition, quoted and discounted based on three grading categories: perfect, good or non-functional/broken.
Samsung said each grading category has explanatory definitions that allow for an accurate value to be attributed to the device that is being traded.
Coupons can not be redeemed for cash, Samsung emphasised.
