Samsung and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have expanded the recall on all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and replacement devices.
The CPSC says this includes 1.9 million phones including 1 million from the September recall. In order to get back their phones, Samsung is paying people to return both the original devices and any replacements. The $100 credit is yours as long as you exchange for another Samsung smartphone.
Here's their statement:
As a sign of our appreciation for your patience and loyalty, we are offering up to a $100 bill credit from select carrier or retail outlets if you exchange your Galaxy Note7 for another Samsung smartphone, less any incentive credits already received.
The credits begin now (Oct. 13, 3 p.m. EDT) in the United States. No word yet as to the specifics for international owners of the phones.
And if you're finished with Samsung entirely, the company will still offer a $25 credit "from select carrier or retail outlets as a token of our appreciation and acknowledgement of your inconvenience."
If you have a Galaxy Note 7, the company advises you return it as quickly as possible and exchange for a different phone. For further assistance, call Samsung at 1-844-365-6197.
