Best Amazon Prime Day early deals on Samsung Galaxy S21
The early birds in the deals department are for Renewed devices, so if you're okay with the idea, you can already save big on pretty much the whole S21 lineup. And by big, we mean hundreds to the point where you can get the latest Samsung flagship for midrange money.
It isn't often we see mind-boggling rebates on Samsung flagships at Amazon. Most Americans these days are buying their phones directly from carriers, with a plan attached, so those tend to see some of the bigger discounts. However, Prime Day can be an exception and we expect plenty of Amazon Prime Day Samsung deals.
Best Galaxy S21 Deals at Verizon
With similar deals all over the place, we hardly knew where to start. A coin toss settled it on Verizon—where you can currently get the Samsung Galaxy S21 for literally free (yes, you heard that right!) as long as you have an eligible trade-in and opt for an Unlimited Verizon plan. That is, you can save up to $800 with trade-in right now.

Apart from that, a purchase of a new phone worth $699.99 or more on a new line, and on an Unlimited plan, also grants you up to a $300 free pre-paid Mastercard (as well as free Verizon Stream TV). And guess what—the two deals are stackable for up to $1100 in savings! That's not even counting the free TV (Don't worry, we've read all the small text for you).
If you've got your sights set on a slightly higher-tier model, the Galaxy S21+ can be had at an up to $800 discount with the same trade-in offer mentioned above. Same goes for the Galaxy S21 Ultra powerhouse, which can be snagged for as little as $399.99 if you meet the trade-in requirements. (You still need to get the new phone with an Unlimited plan to be eligible.)
The Galaxy S21 Ultra and S21+ actually have a Buy One, Get One $1000 off deal as well. (Father's day is coming up on June 20, wink wink!)
Best Galaxy S21 Deals at AT&T
AT&T matches the best deals out there with up to $800 off the price with trade-in, meaning that you can get the vanilla S21 5G literally for free. It's important to note that to benefit from this deal, you need to pick an unlimited plan and your trade-in device needs to be in good working condition.
Best Galaxy S21 Deals at Samsung
Samsung's own discounts on the S21 are also all trade-in deals, though slightly different. On each tier from the Galaxy S21 series, you can get up to $800 off retail price with—you guessed it—an eligible phone to turn in.
For the "basic" Galaxy S21 (though it's anything but), regular financing is $33.34 for 24 months, but with the maximal offer applied, that can potentially go down to $2.09/mo. Even if your screen is cracked, Samsung offers up to $450 in trade-in value. If you aren't opting to turn in your phone, Samsung promises up to $200 store credit towards accessories.
There's also a $50-$100 discount (depending on the model) off retail price on the entire S21 line at the moment, if you choose carrier financing—which is stackable with the (up to) $700 instant credit offer.
Best Galaxy S21 Deals at Best Buy
Best Buy's current deals are plain and simple, no strings attached. And it's our lucky day, because they're hitting us with a $150-$250 discounts running on ALL unlocked S21 models and storage variants. Unlike Samsung's deal, you don't need to choose an installment plan to benefit from it; you simply need to activate it on the day of purchase.
That's about it for the best deals on the Galaxy S21 at the moment. Target and Walmart didn't make the list as they're currently selling for above retail price.
