A new phone is one of the most important purchases you’ll make. You probably use it more times each day than any other device, so you’ll want to pick one that’s just right. It’s easy to spend hours scouring the web looking for the best offers, but we’ve done the legwork for you. We’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best phone deals available to save you time and money.
We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now but we’ve thrown in some of the best carrier offers too. We’ve made note of the international devices as well, but make sure to check carefully before you buy.
Featured deals: Save up to $250 on unlocked Galaxy S21s
We’ve spotted that a number of Samsung’s best phones are heavily discounted today, with most available at prices never bettered by the retail giant. The price cuts go as deep as $250 off some models.
Most notable are the savings available on the Samsung Galaxy S21 range. In fact, while all variants of the Galaxy S21 are on offer, the three 256GB models are the same price as their 128GB equivalents, doubling your storage space at no extra cost. Here are the best savings you can enjoy.
If you’re more of an S-Pen type, you can also save $200 on both the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. The Note 20 is on offer for $799.99 ($200 off) and the Note 20 Ultra is down to $1,099.99 ($200 off).
These great deals appear to be part of a wider Samsung sale on Amazon, which also includes savings on the likes of the Galaxy Watch 3 ($150 off), the Galaxy Buds Pro ($20 off), and more top tech. Follow the links above of the widgets below to explore the sale for yourself. Just be aware that the offers could be pulled at any time.
