Samsung's free DSLR trade-in promo comes to LA today


After a successful first run in New York City earlier this year, Samsung is now taking its free camera-swap program to the West Coast. If you're in the Los Angeles area, you'll have a chance to trade in your DSLR, so long as it's fully functional, for either a Samsung NX30 or NX Mini -- both of which are two of the South Korean company's newest cameras. Compared to the previous event in The Big Apple, Samsung has now included the NX Mini as part of the promotion, giving an option to people who prefer something a little more compact. Today's Ditch Day will be taking place at Hollywood & Highland Center, from 10AM to 7PM PT; supplies are limited however, so be sure you get there as early as possible. For those interested, details on the trade-in criteria can be found below, and you can check out the rest of the terms and conditions right here.

Qualifying DSLR Cameras: For your existing DSLR camera to qualify for the Trade Up Reward, it must be a DSLR camera, including the main battery and functioning lens, must not be permanently marked or defaced and must be complete and undamaged (reasonable wear & tear accepted) (the "Trade-In Criteria"). For the avoidance of doubt, each of the following is considered beyond reasonable wear and tear: cracked/split or open chassis structure, cracked or non-working display, missing battery (if applicable), or lens cracked. Only cameras that fully comply with the Trade-In Criteria shall be deemed a DSLR for the purposes of this Promotion and such determination shall be at the sole discretion of the Promoter.

Participants may only submit one DSLR for a maximum of one Trade Up Reward.
