So I was thinking about trading in my Galaxy s9+ (absolute mint) and putting the trade in amount towards a Note 10+ 
Did Samsung seriously just quote my device at a value of $202.00??? (Paid $1300.00 for it less than a year ago)Bahaha 
Is that really all they offer? Has anyone who traded in been offered such a low amount or is this the "norm"?

Just like trading in a car never give it back to the dealer, Sell if privately.

Check the prices on Kijiji - If it's absolutely mint - you should get somewhere between $450 & $625 for it - Either is way better than $202! 🐧

This question comes up alot.

So short answer, Samsung still has to make money, like the example from @Vape

Dealerships need to make money too. It gives you the ability of getting some value for your previous device instantly without making an effort to sell privately. If you are looking for a higher value, I would strongly recommend Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji. Of course the sale wont be instant and takes some time.

I sold my S8 on Kijiji this past April/May with the Clear View cover. I used both for just over a year but I took good care not to scratch them. I sold them together for $400. Trade-ins are never as good a deal, I think they offered maybe like $150 for the phone.
