Samsung’s low smartphone shipments and costly marketing spending caused its net profit to drop as much as 7 percent in the second quarter. The company previously said it would adjust the pricing of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to convert more sales.

Samsung is launching two sweet offers. The first one, dubbed Samsung Phone Payments on Us Until 2016 Offer, is for customers who avail a monthly installment payment plan for qualifying mobile devices, namely, the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and Galaxy Note 5. The offer will end on October 9, so if you’ve been planning to get a Samsung phone, now is the right time.

For this offer, Samsung will give participating customers checks that will cover the monthly installment payments for up to three months or until December 31. Samsung estimates the monthly cost to be around $40, which means you can get up to $120. Not bad. The only downside is the offer isn’t available on AT&T.

The second offer is for iPhone owners. Specifically, those with an iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Starting today, you may trade-in your iPhone for any of the Galaxy devices mentioned above. You can still enjoy three months of free monthly instalments courtesy of Samsung. But the deal is about to get bigger.

Those who will trade their iPhones will get a $100 credit on Google Play in addition to the 3-month deal. This means you can quickly purchase and install the best Android apps on your new Samsung Galaxy. The credit is more than enough to buy you nifty apps.

Although Samsung’s new offers are enticing, there are a few caveats. The first is that the offers are only available in the United States. It’s not clear whether Samsung is bringing these deals to Europe and Asia anytime soon. The other drawback is that AT&T isn’t included. Sorry, AT&T fans. Nevertheless, Samsung is hoping that promotions like these will help win the competition against Apple in the high-end market and Xiaomi and OnePlus in the low-end market.
