There were some great Samsung deals in the Renewed category this Amazon Prime Day - including some Galaxy Note 20 deals, as well as one huge discount on a Galaxy S21 Ultra. Some of the deals were part of the Renewed Premium program - basically, these devices are in "like-new" condition, with their battery replaced and re-packed in original new packaging. You can still find some of these on Amazon.


Amazon Prime Day is now officially over but there's still time to pull the trigger on that Samsung phone you've been drooling over. Some of these deals are still live (we don't know for how long), so check them out while you can! Meanwhile, if you want to check out the bigger picture, jump to our Amazon Prime Day phone deals.
