Samsung’s offering discounts on Galaxy Watch5 series and Buds2 Pro if you’re recycling old smartwatches and wireless earbuds

Go Green, Go Galaxy by Samsung.

Along with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G (review here) and Galaxy Z Fold4 5G (review here), comes a sustainability campaign that passes the savings onto Samsung’s most loyal customers.

Starting now and ending on 30 September 2022 is Samsung’s “Go Green, Go Galaxy” campaign, which happens in physical Samsung Experience Stores and selected major consumer electronics stores across Singapore. 

If consumers choose to recycle their old smartwatch via Samsung’s in-store e-waste bins, they get an additional S$50 off the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 series devices. 

By Samsung’s definitions in its Terms and Conditions, a “smartwatch” is a device with “additional functions, other than a clock”, and a strap is not required. So we’ll leave it to you to interpret what that means. Other T&Cs apply, and stocks are limited.

If you’re recycling old wireless earbuds via Samsung, consumers are also entitled to an additional S$30 off for purchasing the Galaxy Buds2 Pro. For an old wireless earbud to qualify, it must be a complete set with the charging case intact. It also needs to have Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Similarly, other T&Cs apply, and stocks are limited.

These e-waste discounts can be used in conjunction with existing Samsung promotions and deals (which we’ve collated here). 

Of course, don’t simply just run up to a Samsung store and dunk your old devices into their e-waste recycling points – the Korean electronics giant highly recommends approaching its in-store staff for assistance before you begin. 

According to Samsung Singapore, it has partnered with e-waste operator Alba to collect these old devices for proper treatment and recycling. The raw materials recovered from these e-waste products are later channelled back into production facilities, minimising environmental impact and creating a circular economy
