Here's how you can get a Samsung Galaxy S20-series phone at a whopping $600 off
UPDATE: Just in case a $499.99 Galaxy S20 5G didn't seem affordable enough to warrant a switch from your existing mobile network operator to Google Fi, you can now pay as little as $399.99 for the early 2020-released 6.2-inch Snapdragon 865 powerhouse.
The smallest member of the 5G-capable S20 trio is of course not the only one discounted by a colossal 600 bucks at the time of this update, with the 6.7-inch Galaxy S20+ and 6.9-inch S20 Ultra available for $599.99 and $799.99 respectively for new and existing Fi customers now.
the S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra are widely expected to be better than their forerunners in many key departments, but you're unlikely to see them drop to such insanely low prices (outside of trade-in promotions, at least) for quite some time going forward. Our original story follows below.The terms and conditions listed below are virtually unchanged, mind you, and while no expiration date is mentioned for these even sweeter S20-series deals, it's probably a good idea to pull the trigger as soon as possible. Obviously,
Hardcore fans of Samsung's wildly popular high-end phones are unlikely to even consider buying anything other than a Galaxy S21-series device now that the next big Unpacked event is right around the corner.
But not everyone can afford to spend $1,000 (or more) every 6 or 12 months, so it might not be such a bad idea to at least think about picking up a slightly older Galaxy flagship if you're on a relatively tight budget.
While the "regular" S20 5G normally costs $999.99, a hot new Google Fi deal can slash that arguably excessive list price in half without requiring you to meet a lot of special conditions or jump through too many hoops. All you need to do is transfer your existing phone number from a different wireless service provider to the search giant's MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) and either open an entirely new Fi account or join an existing group plan as a new member.
Incredibly enough, existing customers can also score the huge $500 discount simply by activating the 5G-enabled Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra on a full service plan within 30 days of receiving a shipment confirmation email and remaining on Google Fi for 90 consecutive days. There are no obligatory trade-ins involved, mind you, but if you do want to give up your old phone, you can save even more than the aforementioned five Benjamins with minimal effort.
When all is said and done, the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S20 is on sale at a very reasonable $499.99, while the 6.7-inch S20 Plus and 6.9-inch S20 Ultra are marked down from $1,199.99 and $1,399.99 to $699.99 and $899.99 respectively.
S Pen enthusiasts unwilling to wait for the Galaxy S21 Ultra may also be happy to hear that the stylus-including Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are currently discounted by a slightly humbler but nonetheless massive $400 of their own at Google Fi.

Interestingly, these deals were essentially reversed ahead of Black Friday back in November 2020, with the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra on sale at 500 bucks less than usual at that point and all three members of the Galaxy S20 family discounted by $400. Meanwhile, we expect many Prime Day Samsung phone deals to go live pretty soon, as the big day draws closer, so stay tuned!
