The Samsung Galaxy S5 has been on the market for quite some time now for most of the phone carriers. If you are still stuck with the older generation Galaxy S4 and cannot deal with the processing speed and issues, you might want to consider trading up to the Galaxy S5.

The Galaxy S5 currently retail for anywhere from $599 to $649 for a unlocked version, depending on the carrier.  That is quite a hefty bill for most people.  But why pay full price if you can get it for free.  Below is a little trick to help you trade in your Samsung Galaxy S4 for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S5 (and actually make $10 in the process).

What you will need:

  • Amazon.com Account
  • Gazelle.com Account


1) The Samsung Galaxy S5 has recently been on sale for as low as $49.99 for the top 3 carriers, see links below

or if you prefer to upgrade straight to the Galaxy S6:

2) To recoup the price of the new Galaxy S5, you can trade in your used Galaxy S4.  Here’s the latest no-hassle price from Gazelle.

Gazelle.com makes trade-ins extremely simple and fast, and they even offer free shipping to send your device to their warehouse. Once your device has been inspected by their team, they will pay you cash via check, Amazon gift cards, or Paypal.

The price that Gazelle offers may drop in the near future, so definitely act fast to lock in the price they are currently paying for your device.  At these current prices, you should be able to trade your old Samsung Galaxy S4 for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S5.  The trade will not only be free, but you will actually pocket a few bucks in the process if you are trading for a Verizon Wireless phone.

Feel free to comment below to let us know how the trade-in experience worked out for you.


  1. I need to send an email to the consulate in the Domican Republic and i have tried over and over and it will not send a reply to them can you help me Charles David Scott 601-513-6788

  2. except they make you take the plan of their choosing so you end up paying more in the long run

  3. the software issue should not affect the resell value at Gazelle since a hard reset to factory settings should be able to fix the problem

  4. this is just a trick to “trade in” your device, it’s not an AT&T program. you can simply sell your S4 at that price that can cover the current price of a Galaxy S5, the only catch is that you must extend your current contract by 2 years, but if you are a long time customer with your carrier and have no plans to change carrier in the near future, this would be a great deal.

  5. I question whether this “trade-in” is actually free or whether ATT puts a surcharge on your account each month as part of the $79 phone price!! TDG can you please comment as to this?

  6. Question for you? I have the android.process.acore issue with my phone & I can’t seem to figure out how to fix it. Last time I did something with my Contacts app but this time I can’t find the fix. Happening about every other week or so. How much would this affect the $ of my phone to Gazelle? Or would the hard reset just wipe everything out & in the process clear out the error as well? Did I just answer my own question?

    PS…has anyone actually done this deal you reference here in your article?
