The previous-gen Galaxy S22 may not be Samsung's flagship device anymore, but it remains a fantastic phone for the price, especially with these great deals.
The Galaxy S23 series is the new flagship lineup from Samsung, but if you don't need the latest improvements, snagging a great previous-gen phone is a reliable way to cut costs. You can find a plethora of deals on last year's Galaxy S22 phones, so you can pick one up for a lot less. Whether you're looking for a new unlocked phone, have an old one to trade in, or need to set up a new service plan, we can help. Below, we've gathered some of the best S22 series deals and discounts you can take advantage of right now.
The Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra all featured several major camera improvements over the earlier S21 generation of Samsung devices, including larger pixel sensors and Adaptive Pixel technology for improved nighttime photography and videos. There's an souped up portrait mode, as well as an auto framing feature that can detect and track up to 10 people, to capture everyone in a photo clearly.
However, it's the Galaxy S22 Ultra that made the biggest splash on release. Samsung's top-of-the-line phone introduced the S Pen to the S series for the first time, paying homage to the now-canceled Galaxy Note.
The S22 Ultra also features significant camera upgrades, including Samsung's largest pixel sensor ever, as well a number of raw photo tools for more comprehensive editing, and an advanced Super Clear Glass lens for smoother and crisper nighttime videos without flares.

Most carriers and retailers are offering some form of S22 deal right now, especially if you've got an older device you're looking to trade in. We've rounded up the best Galaxy S22 deals that you can shop and we will continue to update this page as new offers become available, so keep checking back if your carrier or preferred retailer is not listed below.
Samsung's website is the obvious place to buy the company's Galaxy phones. The site offers all the device configurations and has multiple payment options, plus it offers carrier and unlocked models, so you can choose between buying the phone outright or through carrier payments, or by financing it through Samsung, depending on your preference.
As of right now, Samsung isn't offering any direct discounts on unlocked models, though you can save up to $740 when trading in your old devices, with the latest iPhones netting you the biggest discount. Samsung even accepts old and damaged devices, though they won't get you nearly as much in trade-in credit.
If you don't want the headache of navigating carriers, plans and installment payments, you'll want an unlocked phone that you can purchase outright. You can save up to $100 on the base Galaxy S22. However, you can get $175 off if you upgrade to the 256GB model. If you want a more advanced model, you can save up to $250 on the S22 Plus or $400 on the S22 Ultra. Just note that discounts jump around quite a bit between different colors and configurations.
Since the new S23 series went live, Verizon has reduced its prices on the S22 series, with different offers available for different models. If you're shopping for the base model Galaxy S22, you can save $520 when adding a new line of service, dropping the price down to $5 a month. You can also save $660 on the S22 Ultra with a new line, dropping the price to $15 per month. And if you're an existing customer looking to upgrade to the S22 Ultra, you can save up to $600 with an eligible trade-in. At the moment, there aren't any discounts available on the S22 Plus.
But no matter what Galaxy S22 model you're shopping for, there are some bonus offers you can take advantage of. You'll get a free $200 Verizon gift card when you transfer your existing phone number over from another carrier. Plus, you can save up to $150 on select Galaxy Watches, and $310 on a Galaxy Tab S7 FE, but you'll need a service plan for these devices as well.
Best Buy isn't offering any discounts on the base model Galaxy S22 or the S22 Plus right now, but you can save $400 on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The tech retailer claims you'll have to choose same-day activation and sign on with a carrier to get the discount, but you'll get the same price if you choose to activate later and keep your phone unlocked. Best Buy also has its own trade-in program, where you can save up to $650 in exchange for your old phones and devices.
T-Mobile usually has some pretty sweet deals for new customers and current ones alike. Those adding a new line of service can save up to $800 when signing up for a Go5G Plus plan, or $601 for other qualifying plans.
If you already have a Go5G Plus plan (or switch to one), you can also save up to $800 with an eligible trade-in, which scores you the base model Galaxy S22 for free. Those on a Magenta or Magenta Max plan can save up to $350 with a trade-in, or you can save up to $200 with a trade-in if you're on another qualifying service plan.
