The Exclusive Galaxy Note9 Upgrade Program

This Yearly Upgrade Program is limited to customers in Malaysia who purchase a new Galaxy Note9 (direct from Samsung Malaysia) from 14 September until 2 December 2018. They will have the option of paying RM 100 extra for the following benefits :

  • automatic 10% discount on the Samsung Galaxy Note10 in 2019!
  • FREE 5,000 Samsung Reward Points
  • one month FREE instalment (if purchased with Easy Payment Plan),
    OR Samsung Protection Plus worth RM 298.

Now, let us break it down for you why this exclusive Galaxy Note9 Upgrade Program is such a good deal!

 

Why The Galaxy Note9 Upgrade Program Is A Great Deal!

First, take a look at this infographic on what you will actually get when you pay RM 100 to join this Galaxy Note9 Upgrade Program.

  1. Samsung Reward Points are worth RM 1 for every 40 points, so the 5,000 Samsung Reward Points are worth RM 125 – MORE than what you pay to join the upgrade program!
  2. The one-month instalment waiver is really a 8.33% discount on your new Galaxy Note9. That is worth RM 308.25 for the 128 GB model, and RM 383.25 for the 512 GB model.
  3. If you choose to pay in full (either in cash of 1-time credit card payment), you will receive the Samsung Protection Plus plan, which adds another year of warranty plus a display replacement at minimal service charge. That is worth RM 298.
  4. The 10% discount on the future Samsung Galaxy Note series is worth at least RM 369.90 to RM 459.90, and that’s assuming it’s not going to cost more.

In total, you stand to gain between RM 792.90 and RM 803.15 in benefits with this program. Your net benefit after deducting the RM 100 fee – RM 692.90 (full payment in cash or 1-time credit card payment) or RM 703.15 (with EPP). For your convenience, we created this to summarise it all for you!

We also advocate that you take up the Easy Payment Plan (EPP) which lets you repay in twelve interest-free instalments, the first of which will be waived by this program. In fact, you stand to save almost RM 950 with the EPP plan!

In some countries (e.g. Malaysia), it will only be offered in Midnight Black and Metallic Copper with a matching S Pen, and Ocean Blue with a Yellow S Pen. There is also a Lavender Purple colour option that is available in certain countries. Samsung may eventually introduce it at a later date to the rest of the world.

Samsung Galaxy Note9 Offer + Promotion Guide

Samsung is never one to rest their laurels, so you can expect them to introduce regular offers and promotions to keep the pressure on their competitors. Let’s start with a look at the great Galaxy Note9 pre-order offers that quickly sold out!

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 Pre-Order Offers (Ended)

  • Samsung Galaxy Note9 (512 GB) : FREE Gifts worth RM 1,530 (Gear Sport smartwatch, Gear Sport Strap and Wireless Charger Pad)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9 (128 GB) : FREE Gear Sport smartwatch worth RM 1,219

1. Samsung Galaxy Note9 Mystery Box (Ended)

Those who bought the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (US | MY Web | MY App) early got a nice surprise when they started to use Samsung Pay. They immediately received a Mystery Box containing a gift voucher or Samsung Points.

2. Free Starbucks Beverage (Ended)

Early purchasers of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 (US | MY Web | MY App) also received a free drink from Starbucks! Although the promotion was slated to end on 30 September 2018, it probably ended early due to the overwhelming response. If you did not get your free Grande-sized Starbucks drink, there’s no harm checking your Samsung Members app, just in case it is still available…

3. No Increase From SST (Ongoing)

This is not a Galaxy Note9 promotion per se. It applies to all Samsung mobile devices – smartphones, tablets and wearables. Samsung will absorb the 5% SST (Sales and Service Tax) on the purchase of those mobile devices. Great news!

  • FREE 5,000 Samsung Reward Points (worth RM 125)
  • one month FREE instalment (if purchased with Easy Payment Plan), OR Samsung Protection Plus worth RM 298.

As you can tell, this is a great offer as the 5,000 Samsung Reward Points are already worth MORE than what you pay to join the upgrade program. In fact, the whole deal gives you 7X what you pay into it! Read our detailed analysis @ Why The Galaxy Note9 Yearly Upgrade Program Is Such A Great Deal!

5. Samsung Galaxy Note9 512GB Ocean Blue Pre-Order (Ended)

Time To Switch From mySamsung To Samsung Members!

At the 2016 Southeast Asia Forum, Samsung introduced mySamsung, designed to provide a range of personalised privileges and assistance to Samsung mobile phone users such as lifestyle rewards, tips on how to efficiently manage your device, and registering a device’s details and warranty.

 

Switch To Samsung Members!

Today, Samsung Malaysia Electronics is pleased to announce the availability of Samsung Members, the successor to mySamsung. Through Samsung’s latest all-in-one app, users will be able to unlock the full potential of their Galaxy device and the experience that comes with it through exclusive lifestyle and service rewards, and specialised customer care services.

Previously, mySamsung was available to countries in South East Asia and Oceania (SEAO) while Samsung Members catered to countries in the other parts of the world. The two apps have now been consolidated into one unified Samsung Members app for greater consistency among all Samsung users all around the globe.

Feedback

With a promise to provide ‘More For You To Enjoy’, Samsung Members offers a richer and fuller experience on top of the features that are known and loved from mySamsung. Samsung Members is an all-in-one app that offers a wide range of benefits, customer communication, and troubleshooting services for the loyal and passionate users of Galaxy devices around the globe.

For starters, Samsung Members offers a variety of feedback and troubleshooting services such as FAQs for common problems, one-for-one questions where users can ask for expert and professional advice, and Error Report which allows users to directly report suspicious activity on their devices and receive fast feedback.

Support

Samsung Members’ Support also offers various tools to keep a user’s Galaxy device working optimally. Device Diagnostics lets users select a number of tests to check the condition of the device, including battery, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and sensors. Depending on the results of those self-diagnostics, the support app may be able to take actions to repair issues automatically.

Other than that, the Smart Tutor function lets users get in touch with a live customer service agent for advice and help in analysing and fixing technical issues. Technical experts can even take control of a device remotely to perform the necessary fixes and changes.

Users can also stay up-to-date with the latest news on Galaxy devices, thanks to the News & Tips feature, which provides users with top tips on how to make the most of popular Galaxy apps and stories behind the innovations.

Benefits

[adrotate group=”2″]

In addition to that range of solution services, Samsung Members offers a “benefits” programme with a variety of redeemable coupons and exclusive event invitations. These coupons can be as everyday lifestyle discounts for Samsung services at customer service centers, Samsung products at Samsung stores, and so much more.

When migrating over to Samsung Members, consumers need not worry about warranty and device information that have been registered via mySamsung. As all of this information have already been captured and stored in Samsung’s customer service servers, so users can be rest assured that the move to Samsung Members from mySamsung will not void their device’s warranty.

All Samsung Galaxy users are highly encouraged to download Samsung Members from the Google Play Store, as mySamsung will cease to operate by March 1st, 2018.
