Samsung offering $100 credit to Note 7 owners if they switch to another Samsung phone

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In an attempt to hold on to customers, Samsung is offering an incentive of a $100 credit to Note 7 owners who switch to another Samsung phone.

The Note 7 device was one of the most expensive smartphones in the market with all the latest technologies from Samsung including the ability to unlock the phone by scanning a user's iris. It was sold for between $850 and $890.

The tech company pulled the plug on the Note after one of its replacement phones caught fire on a Southwest flight at Louisville International Airport. Samsung recalled the original Note 7 last month because of similar overheating problems.

This week, Samsung asked all Note 7 customers to stop using them.

Customers who ask for a full refund or switch to another phone maker will get $25.
