When it comes to Android phones, Samsung makes some of the best phones out there. While the newest phone in Samsung's lineup is the S24, that doesn't mean that the S23 isn't still great, especially the S23 Ultra. Luckily, the new release means we're seeing some good deals, including on the budget-friendly Galaxy S23 FE, so now is the perfect opportunity to grab a flagship-level phone for a relatively good price, if not free.

In February 2023, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and S23 Ultra. All three retain the same screen sizes as the 2022 models at 6.1, 6.6 and 6.8 inches, respectively, with a refined external design and some modest upgrades to the camera hardware, battery sizes and internal storage of the larger two models. A special version of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor powers the new phones and is optimized for the new Galaxy S23 lineup, which we found in our tests to have much faster performance than the S22.

The new Galaxy S23 FE hit shelves later in October 2023 and is the most affordable model in the S23 lineup. It has a midsize 6.4-inch display and improved battery life but comes equipped with the previous-gen Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Whether you're excited to get your hands on one of Samsung's flagship phones, or maybe it's just time to upgrade from an older phone, we'll help you save some cash on your S23 purchase. Note that the deals and bonuses below are all time-limited and could change.

Best Galaxy S23 deals

While discounts on the main S23 lineup are slim at Amazon right now, you can get $50 off the already affordable Galaxy S23 FE for the purple color, dropping it down as low as $550.

Samsung isn't currently offering any cold, hard discounts, but there are savings to be had if you know where to look. Right now, Samsung will knock up to $525 off the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus or off the S23 Ultra with an eligible trade-in. Newer Apple and Samsung devices will net you the most, but you'll get enhanced credit for phones from Google, Motorola and other brands as well. 

While there aren't a lot of great deals on Best Buy, you can $100 off the Samsung Galaxy S23 128GB version, which brings the price down to $700. There aren't any deals for other sizes of the S23, the S23 Plus or the S23 Ultra, but you can get up to $1,000 off with a qualified trade in for either carrier models (AT&T or Verizon). 

Verizon is offering both new and existing customers a chance to save on Galaxy S23 phones. Those adding a new line can get either the S23 or S23 FE for free, with any money spent credited to your bill over 36 months. You can also get an Amazon Fire TV 65" Omni Series for free for those who purchase with a new Unlimited Ultimate or Unlimited Plus plan.

Xfinity is offering up to $685 off the Galaxy S23 Series with either a new line or an eligible trade-in. And you can combine these offers for some serious savings. The latest iPhones will net you the biggest discount, but Xfinity also accepts models from Samsung and Google, as well as tons of smaller brands. Like most other carrier trade-in offers, the discount will be applied in the form of monthly bill credits. You can also choose to receive your money back in the form of a check, although it may reduce your discount a bit.

There is also a direct $100 discount on the Galaxy S23 128GB and 256GB versions, which brings them down to $700 and $750, respectively.
