Samsung Canada to give Galaxy Note owners $200 incentive to upgrade to the Note 8


The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was released in Canada on September 15th and was well received, with a variety of Canadian carriers picking up the device and strong pre-order numbers.

Prior to the launch of the Note 8, Samsung Canada told MobileSyrup that it would give previous Note 7 owners, as part of the Note 7’s recall, an incentive to upgrade to the Note 8, stating, “a special offer for former Note7 users when they upgrade to the Note8. Details will be available very soon.”

Six weeks and multiple emails later, we finally have an answer for you.

In an email statement sent MobileSyrup, Samsung Canada says, “Eligible Note users will be offered an opportunity to register for a $200 Samsung Canada Prepaid Mastercard when upgrading to the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note8.”

The incentive is available today until November 9th, 2017 at 11:59 pm EST.

“Qualifying owners of all active Note devices including current Note 8 and former Note 7 owners will be eligible for this Upgrade Offer. Additional qualifying criteria requires that prior to Oct 17th, 2017 owners have registered a previous Note device with Samsung, created a Samsung Account and selected ‘opt-in’ to receive promotional communications. Former Note7 owners will be given until the Nov 9th, 2017 deadline to meet these qualifying conditions. The Note 8 Upgrade Offer full terms and conditions are available at www.noteupgrade.ca,” says Samsung.

This promo is not limited to Note 7 owners but available to all Galaxy Note owners since the device category was launched.

For those curious to know how long it will take to secure your $200 credit, Samsung Canada states in the fine print that “the fulfillment process will take 6-8 weeks to complete and requires validation that the Note8 device remains active on a Canadian network for more than fifteen (15) days following purchase.”
