Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-order deals: save up to $1000 on prices and get free storage upgrades
Like what you saw during this week's reveal event and want to lock down your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-order deal? We have the latest information on what you can get from the big networks and direct from Samsung itself. We'll let you know how much you can save via trade-ins and what other freebies or discounts are available ahead of the February 25 release date. If you're after the regular S22/S22+ offers, then be sure to take a look at our separate Samsung Galaxy S22 pre-order deals page.
Let's quickly round up a few details before we dive in, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra costs $1199/£1149 for the base 128GB model. Larger sizes include 256GB, 512GB and a massive 1TB option. The phone is available in Phantom White, Phantom Black, Burgundy, and Green. We've had a look at these colors in the flesh and, between us, the green and burgundy models are the most stylish of the bunch. That being said, yesterday saw Samsung sneakily reveal a few new colors that are exclusive to its website. Be sure to check out these new Graphite, Sky Blue, and Red (looks more like orange) options too. However, ordering one of these exclusive colors will delay shipping by a few weeks as they seem to be last-minute additions to the palette.
So far, ordering directly from Samsung in the US seems to be the best option if you're not attached to a network, as there are multiple pre-order incentives for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Get your order in by February 24 and Samsung will let you upgrade to the next storage tier of the Ultra at no additional cost (US only). And given how impressive the camera looks, you might appreciate the extra space if you like shooting video or taking high-resolution RAW format photos. You'll also get $200 of Samsung credit, which is great if you're perhaps looking to pair your new phone with a Galaxy Watch 4 or something from the Galaxy Buds range of in-ear headphones. Don't forget to protect your new phone from the start - check out our guide to the best Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra cases.
Today's best Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-order deals
As highlighted above, Samsung is coming in hot today with free upgrades to the next storage size up when you get your Galaxy S22 ultra pre-order in before February 24. You'll also get an instant $200 credit for the store. Even if you don't fancy putting that towards a Galaxy Watch 4 or some wireless earbuds, there are plenty of other tech products available. If you're looking to trade in an older device you can save up to $900 too to really bring their price down to as little as $299. Samsung is selling the phone unlocked or paired with Verizon, T-mobile, AT&T, or US Cellular.
Verizon's S22 Ultra deals include 36-month plans starting at $36 a month. You can also get up to $1000 off 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 next available storage size too.
AT&T has a trade-in offer of $800 off Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-orders. And while that might not sound as hot as the $1000 off deals above, AT&T is letting you trade-in any Note, S, or Z series from any year and in any condition, so you would potentially only need to pay a measly $400 for the S22 Ultra and get rid of that old phone that's been sat in a drawer for years. As with the other networks, these S22 Ultra pre-order deals get you a free upgrade to the next storage size up.
If you'd prefer to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra from a retailer, we'd check out the big brands like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon. So far Walmart only seems to be selling the phone with a small number of carriers with monthly paymentys only. Amazon and Best Buy are listing unlocked models though.
Over in the UK, you can see contract offers are starting to come through in our comparison chart below from a range of networks and mobile stores. It's certainly worth heading over to the UK Samsung site as well. Prices start at £1149, but you also get 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) and can save even more money off the RRP via trading in older devices.
We'll be updating this page throughout the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra pre-order window with the latest offers from other networks.
