Update (April 21): Samsung changed the display a bit. First, you can get up to $1,000 in credit for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, up from $850. An old S21 Ultra in good condition is worth that much, but keep in mind that you can send up to two devices (a smartphone, tablet, and/or smartwatch) for credit. Phones with cracked screens are also acceptable (at a lower price).
The biggest change is that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is now part of the deal as well and you can support the purchase by trading up to two old devices for up to $1,000 in credit. The base price for the 256GB model (unlocked) is $1800, so trade credit can cover most of the cost. This deal is available at the Samsung Store in the US.
The flagship foldable model now also comes with $250 in Samsung instant credit, which is slightly higher than the $100 that the S22 Ultra and S22+ get ($50 for the S22). You can spend this right after clicking Continue on many accessories and Samsung products. Some of those are discounted 30-50%, so instant credit can buy more than its dollar value.
Especially with an instant credit of $250 in Z Fold3. You can get the Galaxy Tab S7 FE (128 GB, Wi-Fi) basically for free — it’s 56% off and costs $260. Same with the Galaxy Watch4 Classic (46mm, Bluetooth), 30% off and $266.
One final note – the Galaxy Z Fold3 comes with $100 credit from the Google Play Store that you can spend on apps, games, movies, and books. Also, the Z Fold3 and S22 Ultra come with 4 free months of YouTube Premium, 3 free months of Spotify Premium, and 6 free months of SiriusXM Streaming.

During the pre-order period, Samsung US was offering $50 off the regular prices of the Galaxy S22 series — those regular prices are $800 for the S22, $1,000 for the S22+, and $1,200 for the S22 Ultra (for the base memory configuration). Those prices haven’t budged since then, however, and the company has introduced new ways to save some money almost every week.
The offer is simple this week – you’ll get store credit on your purchase. The Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S22+ come with $100 of Samsung credit included, and the Galaxy S22 priced at $50. Note that this offer is for US customers only.
You can get instant Samsung Credit of up to $100 to spend on accessories, bundles, and even tablets
Using the credit is very simple – after choosing the phone configuration you want, you press “Continue” and you are taken to a page where you can spend your credit. Keep in mind that a lot of the accessories are 20% off this week, so the $100 goes a lot further than usual.
You can keep it simple and only get Samsung Care+ ($12 a month), which covers accidental damage (drops, spills) and inexpensive screen repairs ($29).
Alternatively, you can choose one or three additional tools. For example, the Galaxy Watch4 (44mm, Bluetooth) is 30% off now and costs $196. The Galaxy Buds2 has its own discount and sells for $130. Companion Fitness Package gives you the watch and Buds2 for $300 (a little less than if you got them separately). That’s before credit is applied, of course, so Watch4 can be yours for less than a hundred dollars.
There is one of the highest discounts on the Galaxy Tab S7 FE – Wi-Fi models (64, 128 and 256 GB) are 40% off, so the list starts at $318.
Finally, do not forget that the Enhanced Trade-in program is still active. This means you can send up to two old devices, including phones (in good condition or with a cracked screen), tablets, and smartwatches.
