You don't need to wait for Black Friday to find a killer deal on one of the best Android phones. Right now Verizon Wireless is offering up to $800 off (opens in new tab) a second flagship Galaxy device when you take out a new line with the carrier. The deal applies to the Samsung Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra as well as Samsung's latest foldables, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.

The most tantalizing deal is probably for the vanilla S21, though. Verizon's $800-off credit completely covers the cost of the second phone, effectively making it a BOGO (buy one, get one) offer.

The deal also knocks a considerable amount off the purchase of the two more expensive Galaxy S21 devices, taking the S21 Plus down to $199.99, and the S21 Ultra down to $399.99. And as usual, you can save even more by trading in an older device to cover the upfront cost of the first new handset.

Samsung's Galaxy S21 series are among the best all-round Android phones you can buy, with reliable performance and capable multi-camera systems. With Verizon's latest deal, the base model S21 is free when you buy another qualifying Galaxy flagship with a new line.

While the regular Galaxy S21 is approaching its first birthday, it's still a highly competitive smartphone, and spent most of 2021 as our pick for best Android phone for most people. The smaller size is ideal for buyers seeking a powerful Android phone that's not as hard to pocket as many competitors, and the entire S21 series recently started to get Samsung's One UI 4 software update, based on Android 12.
