As advertised here ;

express.co.uk/lif…-In (This is what made me aware of the deal)

Promotion Details :

recycle.virginmedia.com/sam…ion

"Participants must purchase a new Samsung S8, S8 Plus, S9 or S9 Plus on one of our Freestyle plans directly from Virgin Media between 25th February and 15th March 2018, and trade in a working smartphone within 45 days of purchase using a validation code we will send to you by email once your 14-day cooling-off period is over. Once your claim has been validated via the online redemption process up to £400 cashback* (the Reward) will be paid to your bank account within 28 business days. Terms and Conditions apply.

*Up to £400: The Reward is a £100 enhanced uplift on the amount that would normally be quoted for working smartphones recycled through this website. Some high end handsets will have a recycle value of more than £400. For faulty or broken smartphones we will add £50 to the amount we would normally have quoted on our website."

To cut a long story short.

Basically hunt around in a cupboard or a dusty draw for a crappy phone you have laying about such as a old Nokia phone that has not been used in years and you could potentially get the value of the phone + £100 If the phone works (£50 if it doesn't or is faulty)

(Not sure how long it is lasting for).

So if I trade in an old blackberry or any smartphone from yesteryears worth £10 or something, would that work?

Yes.
£230 for an iphone 7, which i have, and which i hate, but what is the cheapest samsung i can purchase?

BlackBerry z10 worth £6 for recycling, pointlea


It does say on the page

"Just got your hands on a Samsung S8 or S9 ?

Enter your promo code when searching and you'll get a cashback bonus when you recycle your old phone!"

So it looks like you will have to make a order first and get a reward code before you recycle it.

If you are unsure give them a call and they maybe able to explain it better.

So even with the £100 they giving me total of £410 for an s8 plus. Then no doubt i will get conned on the s9 also. Pffttt

It's also worth noting you can also get cashback aswell as the Price of the phone + £100

Sure the cheapest option is to always buy a phone outright straight away but I guess some people like financing things so to say as it's cheaper in the short run, but not in the long.

As a example I got the S9+ for £699.

Fair enough you made a valid point I always buy my phone SIM-free in case I change my mind I can sell it I'm not committed to a long-term agreement with a network provider
Can you also get extra cashback by referring a friend??

You can get an extra £70 if a friend refers you to buy the Samsung Galaxy S9

Worth a shot! I'd give them a call although i'd be thinking you'd be taking the ****

£100 for a working phone + the Phone Value + Cashback (Although they won't know this) + Refer a friend xD
Load of crap, they offer about half the value of it.

Trade in your decent phone with someone else and just add a crappy old phone to this trade in to get the extra £100

Just spoken to a VM rep via live chat and they said its possible to refer a friend, so potentially i could do this:-

Trade Samsung S5 to cex - £70
Trade Samsung S3 to virgin - £110 (£10 phone +£100)
Possible topcashback - £50-£80 depending on contract
Refer a friend - £70-£100 depending on contract

So between £300 and £360 depending on contract.......have I done this right???

Sorry let me clarify. I got a promo code from Paypal for signing up to their credit when I paid on the paypal website (after choosing paypal in very) so it may not be from Very. Though the final checkout was done on Very the payment was done on paypal.
