As part of its continued commitment towards offering superior consumer experience, Samsung Mobiles, today announced the ‘Stay New' ownership plan on its flagship Galaxy devices in India. ‘Stay New' empowers the customer to own a Galaxy smartphone of choice and upgrade the same in future.
Speaking about the new initiative, Mr. Vineet Taneja, Country Head, Samsung Mobiles & IT said, "The launch of the ‘Stay New' plan reasserts Samsung's commitment to make premium Samsung smartphone experience more accessible and affordable. The new plan is in line with our philosophy of bringing the exciting world of smartphones to Indian customers. We are targeting a significant number of new users joining the Samsung family with this category leading initiative. This not only offers a 18-month EMI programme but also an Easy Buy Back, which will help users upgrade to newer models as Samsung continues to innovate and bring latest technology."
The smartphones covered under the Stay New platform are Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2, Samsung S4, Samsung S4 Mini, Samsung S3, Galaxy Tab 3 and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Customers can buy any of these smartphones through participating banks' credit card and avail Samsung's easy 18 months EMI scheme, at applicable interest rates. Under this program, one can get the popular Galaxy S4 for as less as Rs. 2,466/- per month or an S4 Mini for less than Rs.1,500 per month.
Furthermore, users can also upgrade to the latest Samsung Galaxy devices after six months by using the Easy BuyBack service. The Stay New plan will be rolled out in stores across the country from January 1st until March 31st, 2014, or until stocks last. The offer is also available at Samsung India Stores. Samsung has tied up with HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Citibank and Standard Chartered for this program.
How will the Easy Buy Back Offer Work?
Easy Buy Back service is powered by Ingram Micro. Under this service, the user can sell back the current Samsung device, by simply calling up Ingram Micro's toll free number within six to twelve months of purchasing the product. Post evaluation of the product, a buyback price will be informed to the customer. On accepting the instant offer of the best price, the device will be collected from the location of customer's choice and the agreed upon amount will be transferred directly into the customer's account. Hence, the customer can upgrade to the latest Galaxy smartphone by easily selling off their used Galaxy device.
