Today's best Samsung Galaxy S22/S22+ pre-order deals
Samsung is upgrading purchases of the 128GB version of the S22 and S22+ to the 256GB model at no extra charge when you buy directly from its store. S22 pre-orders also come with an instant $200 credit for the Samsung store, which is great for getting a sweet deal on earbuds, smartwatches, or even the new Tab S8 series. You can save a further $500 with an eligible trade-in too.
Verizon's S22 monthly prices start at just $23.61 a month on 36 month Verizon Device Payment plans. If you're looking more towards the 6.6-inch S22 Plus phone, then the monthly price rises to $29.16. There's a great way to save on those prices though as you can also get up to $1000 off (so yes, a free phone essentially) with a qualifying trade-in on select Unlimited plans if you create a new line or switch over to the network. Existing customers can get up to $1000 off with trade-ins on Unlimited too. Like Samsung, pre-ordering with Verizon gets you a free upgrade to the 256GB model.
AT&T's monthly prices for the S22 phones start at $23 a month without a trade-in. The carrier is leaning on the trade-in value to make an S22 pre-order much more affordable. You can save up to $800 by trading in any Note, S, or Z series from any year and in any condition. So yes, you can get an S22 for FREE. This could be very competitive with Verizon and co as it sounds like you'll get the best price at AT&T for those super old devices you never got around to trading in years ago. Who's a winner for being a bit of a tech hoarder? You are, buddy.
If you'd prefer to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S22 from a retailer, we'd check out the big brands like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon. Best Buy has started throwing in $100 gift cards with some preorders of the S22 and S22 Plus and is also offering the free storage upgrade. Over at Amazon, we can see that the 256GB model is the same price as the 128GB one for both phones, so be sure take advantage of that offer. Walmart only seem to be selling the phones on monthly plans right now rather than unlocked upfront pucrhases, but that could change soon.
Over in the UK, we're starting to see contract offers appear from a range of networks and mobile stores and you can see them in our comparison chart below. There are some great offers going at the UK Samsung site as all S22 and S22 Plus pre-orders include a free year of Disney Plus (worth £79.90) and a free pair of Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds (worth around £220 at launch or around £130 in recent sales).
We'll be updating this page throughout the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus pre-order window with the latest offers from other networks.
