Moderators are removing my petition links and post to silence the few of us asking for answers to why US customer base is being treated unfairly. Sign my peition today and lets get some answers.
Suggesting a petition and even mentioning one exists is fine, but links are strictly prohibited by the guidelines of the forums. On that note, I'll be removing that link again.
I have just read through the Community Guidelines [3.2.2017] and I don't see any mention of links not being approved to in a post unless posting or linking to adult or pornographic content. I have seen link on other post. I am not trying to deliberately break any of the guidelines but if you could please point me in the direction of where links of any kind are not approved that would be greatly appreciated.
This Community is a place to positively help other owners of Samsung devices. Petitions of this nature go a bit against that idea. I have no problem with everyone discussing this as long as we try and keep things constructive.
As far as a possible discount goes, I know that there was a 1/2 off discount offered on the S8, but that wasn't announced until the day it actually hit the streets. In that regard, it could be a while before we know for sure if there will be a discount toward the device being announced tomorrow or not. However, I have been in contact with Samsung asking about it, and when I find out something a bit more concrete, it will certainly be posted on the Community.
Discount... hahahahaha. You mean the lame promos they pretty much do every time a new version gets released? Sorry but you screwed us over and I like many others were FORCED into a downgraded phone. We should get the phones for free and I'll even give you the piece of crap SE7 back.
Nope? That's fine, I'll take my business back to Apple.
I have own every samsung phone since s3 I have samsung products in my house if note7 owners don't get discount on note8 my s7edge will be my last samsung product!! But I'm sure we won't get discount because samsung Corp. Feel they have did enough to all the note7 owners!
Do understand the US based customers had to go through the same hoops as other countries who are receiving a discount on the Note 8. We are trying to stay positive but it's a little difficult when myself and many other turned in our phones TWICE and then received a downgrade (S7 Edge). We are now stuck in a contract for a device that we didn’t want. As far as the S8 goes, that phone was not available for me to trade in. Samsung has been asked the same question for a long time. Will the Note 7 users receive a discount on the Note 8? They have yet to answer the question. CNET has asked them for any comment on an article stating they should give the Note 7 users a discount (That link is also on this thread and was not removed) but no comment was made. We deserve an answer. That is why I have started this petition and would appreciate it if you would not remove the link because I am NOT breaking any guidelines by doing so. It is only fair that all customer that had the terrible experience be treated equally and receive a discount as well. I am asking the community for help in this matter, please sign my petition today and support us in getting answers from Samsung.
Again, the device being announced tomorrow isn't something even the moderators know much about at this time. Samsung is looking into a possible discount, but until I know more for sure, there isn't much I can tell you. Most petition links are removed because they aren't suppose to be linked here, but some do get missed by us.
How about this, I'll let you leave this one up, just in this one thread. I do ask that you not link it again elsewhere though as I will have to remove it. I want to keep this conversation as civil as possible because I know it matters a lot to everyone, both owners of devices and Samsung alike.
Do you realize that the discount available to us here in the US is making the purchase, overall, much more expensive than average joe off the street, paying full price, when you consider they are only discounting the price of the new note 8 by a fraction of what we paid for the fill in, and its only a select few makes n models of phones, which must be in like new condition that are accepted. They all happen to be worth $50-$100 more than they're giving credit for yet cost an average of $300 more to buy at time of need. You'd be money ahead if you sold your phone yourself and get full market value to put towards new note 8.
