Samsung’s 4th generation foldables are expected in a month, but chances of lower starting prices are low. This could be the right time to pick up a third generation foldable – Samsung US is offering some freebies to encourage just that.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is available with a $400 discount and up to $640 of trade-in credit (or up to $465 if you are sending in a device with a cracked screen). This means that the 256GB model starts at $1,400 and can go down as low as $760, depending on what you have to trade in. As an additional perk, Samsung will give you a free Galaxy Watch4 (40 or 44mm).
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ get a similar deal – up to $700 of enhanced trade-in (up to $700 again for a device with a cracked screen) and a free Galaxy Watch4 or Watch4 Classic (the Z Fold3 deal offers only the vanilla watch). This means that the S22 and S22+ are can drop to $150 and $350, respectively. The S22 Ultra gets an even better version of this deal – up to $1,000 of enhanced trade-in (which again, values devices with cracked screens the same). This means that the 128GB model can be had for less than the S22+, just $200.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 gets a simple deal – up to $600 of trade-in credit (up to $415 if you’re sending in a phone with a cracked screen). This means that the Flip can be yours for as low as $400 if you want the 128GB model and $450 for the 256GB one.
Finally, if you’re in the market for a new tablet, Tab S8 Ultra comes with a free pair of Galaxy Buds Live and get up to $675 of trade-in credit. This means that the tablets can start at $425. The Tab S8 and Tab S8+ are also part of the deal, but they only get up to $200 of trade-in credit, so the S8+ model can end up costing more than the Ultra.
