Summer is fast approaching and you may want a new phone to take with you on vacation. If you have your sights set on a Samsung flagship then you will be pleased to hear that Samsung US has a new batch of promotions and discounts. And there are a couple of special offers that will be available on Memorial Day (May 30, Monday).
Let’s start with the basics – the regular price of the Galaxy S22 can be discounted with the Cracked Screen Enhanced trade-in program, which will pay out for devices with a cracked screen at the same rate as devices in good condition. For example, you can get $525 for an S21 or $425 for an S20 with a cracked screen. That’s how much you get even if the screen is okay. The maximum you can get is $700, so the Galaxy S22 can be yours for just $100 with the right trade in. By the way, you will also receive a $50 e-certificate, which you can spend on accessories.
Moving on to the Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra, you can get up to $1,000 in enhanced trade in credit. An S21 Ultra is worth $1,000 (even if has a cracked screen), so you can drop the price of the new Ultra to $200. With the S22+ and S22 Ultra you also get a $100 e-certificate, so you have more to spend on accessories.
Note that on May 30 there will be a Deal of the Day offer for the Galaxy S22 Ultra – basically the same offer as now, except you will also receive a free Galaxy Watch4. That same day there will be a similar deal for the Z Flip3, including the free Watch4.
If you prefer the larger Galaxy Z Fold3, you can have one with up to $1,100 enhanced trade-in credit, which you can get for a Z Fold2 with a damaged screen. This puts the final price of the new foldable at $700. To sweeten the deal further, you get a free 40mm Galaxy Watch4 (the 44mm watch is available for $20 extra).
Samsung flagships have the longest software support window of any Android, so you can get a model from last year. Samsung.com no longer carries new units, but offers certified renewed phones – with like-new condition and with warranty. You can have a Galaxy S21, S21+ or S21 Ultra with up to $675 of enhance trade-in credit. The S22 starts at $125. You will also have the option to pick up a Galaxy Watch4 40mm for $50 or 44mm for $80.
PS. when you go to Samsung.com have a close look at just what you are getting as there are usually a few other perks. For example, the Galaxy phones come with 4 free months of YouTube premium, 6 months of SiriusXM streaming and 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage for 6 months. Also, if you get a carrier phone, there may be additional discounts or other ways to reduce your spending.
