If that felt like a major inconvenience for you, T-Mobile is here to eliminate it, giving you the choice between a trade-in and a new line of service. Whether you’re a new or current Magenta subscriber, all you have to do starting today to lower the $799.99 regular price of a 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 5G to $0 is open a Magenta Max line and wait for your monthly bill credits to come in.
After taking the $800 price cut into consideration, you’re looking at spending just $200 for the S22 Plus and Z Flip 3 5G, $400 for the S22 Ultra, and $1,000 for the Z Fold 3. Naturally, if you’d rather get rid of an old handset than get a new line of unlimited Magenta Max service, you can still do that without any other strings attached, although Samsung’s flagships are unfortunately not eligible for T-Mo’s huge savings with “any trade-in.”
Keep in mind that, whatever you’re thinking of trading in, it will need to be in “good” condition to be accepted, and in order to get those maximum trade-in values, you’ll also have to be a Magenta Max subscriber or switch to that “premium” plan. Otherwise, the $800 and $400 credits will shrink to $600 and $300 respectively, which is also decent but not quite the same thing.
If you’ve been considering purchasing a member of Samsung’s ultra-high-end Galaxy S22 family for a time, you’re undoubtedly already aware that saving up to… 100% off the retail price of one of these ultimate mobile beasts is very easy. Of course, discounts differ by carrier and store, as well as per manufacturer, and are mostly dependent on what unique standards you’re prepared to satisfy and what hoops you’re ready to go through. If you want a fully free “vanilla” S22, you’ll have to trade in a current handset, whether it’s a recent Galaxy high-end or even a S9 or iPhone X with a broken screen.
The same $800 discount with no trade-in required can obviously be scored on the S22+ and S22 Ultra, as well as the Galaxy S21 series, Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Z Fold 3. Those are not just all of Samsung’s best (high-end) mobile devices available today, but also some of the overall best phones money can buy in 2022.
