At its Unpacked event earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the latest Galaxy S21 models. If you want to get your hands on one as soon as possible and make a saving, we're here to let you know the best place to pick one up.
We've been used to Samsung releasing three S series phones a year for a little while now. Back in 2019, we saw the release of the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, with 2020 giving us the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. The 2021 lineup follows that trend with Samsung unveiling the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra phones.
Though the Samsung Galaxy S21 devices are still rather new, there are a whole bunch of deals already available at this early stage so you can save money while also pocketing the latest flagship device on the market.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 operates as the entry-level model with the most affordable price and smallest screen of the bunch at 6.2 inches. It also features a more lightweight build with a plastic back, though it's designed to look a lot like the glass of its larger counterparts.
It's still rocking flagship specs with an AMOLED display, triple rear cameras (12MP wide, 12MP ultra-wide, and 64MP telephoto), 10MP front-facing camera, a Snapdragon 888 octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

samsung has a great deal if you signed up for the extra 60 store credit before the event today. total of 260 to spend in the samsung shop - enough for an active2 and a case - my issue is that for some reason even though I already have an unlimited plan its saying it requires a plan change that will increase my bill by 90 a month which seems insane.
I would have ordered one of they didn't get rid of the SD card.
Doesn't the S21 Ultra model still have an MicroSD card slot?
I see none of the S21 variants have a MicroSD card slot. Guess I will not be buying one, either.
S10e variant needed... Tired of these big ass phones falling out of my pocket
The trade-in deals are there best feature? I got the S21+ for 384.00 USD. Traded my weak 🔋pixel4, no regrets!
For those concerned about lack of sd card. I was also a huge fan of the card, but have not missed it at all. I store music on device and use camera regularly.
Just bought a S21 ultra 128GB directly from Samsung for $425.00. They gave me $800 off the price. $600 for my s20 plus trade in and an addional $200 off on the reg price. Plus interest free financing. I couldn't find anyone that could beat this price. Plus, since I am a Verizon customer they gave me a free VIP pack that contains an aluminum water bottle, pair of wireless buds and a 10,000 watt portable power pack with wireless charging capability all for free.
