Samsung has announced that it is launching a special rewards program in South Korea that offers benefits to Galaxy Fold 5G users who upgrade to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G. The company said that its ‘Galaxy Fold 5G Special Rewards Program’ offers a reward of KRW 1 million (around $840) in full if a customer who purchased the Galaxy Fold 5G returns it and buys the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G.
The Galaxy Fold 5G Special Rewards Program is only available to the first 10,000 customers on a first-come, first-serve basis. Users in South Korea can get enrolled in the program from September 10 to September 11 via Samsung’s website. After purchasing the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, they can apply for the special rewards program. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is scheduled to be launched on September 18 in South Korea.
Customers who apply for the rewards program and purchase the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G can visit the nearest Samsung Digital Plaza from September 15 to September 25 to return their existing Galaxy Fold 5G. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G will be shipped to them from September 15. The company will deposit the money to the user’s bank account after it receives the product and inspects its condition, seven days after the return date.
Galaxy Fold 5G units that are registered for theft (or loss) and devices with defective power supply or defective cameras will not be eligible for this special rewards program.
A Samsung executive said, “This special reward program is prepared with gratitude to the loyal customers who loved the Galaxy Fold 5G and made meaningful innovations of the Galaxy lineup together. We will continue to introduce foldable smartphones that provide design and experience that goes beyond the limits of existing smartphones.”
