Pre-order Galaxy S21 series (T-Mobile) via Samsung Direct from $0

+39 Deal Score
138,469 Views
Pre-Order Galaxy S21 series (T-Mobile)

Trade in value for S20, Note 20, iPhone 12 series are now $800 (instead of $700 for other carriers/unlocked)

If you do not have above devices for trade-in, it is better to look at the T-Mobile deal post. More trade-in device options and higher values for older devices too.

Previously, T-Mobile had subsidized $25 off (S21) and $100 off (S21+ & Ultra) rebate for their models via Samsung Direct. That has ended, but if you still have S20/Note20 series, this matches last best value. This is also the lowest S21 price, free after trade-in. Matching the same ongoing T-Mobile pre-order promotions.

Stack with EPP or Samsung Discount Program, making Buds Pro only at $1.99+tax (after $100+$60 In-App pre-order credit)

Use promo code YOURGALAXY1RESERVEWA or 50LATESTGALAXY5G if you are only getting $100/$150/$200 accessories credits.

Prices after trade-in credit ($800)
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 5G
    • 128GB $0
    • 256GB $49.99
  • Samsung Galaxy S21+ 5G
    • 128GB $199.99
    • 256GB $249.99
  • Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G
    • 128GB $399.99
    • 256GB (only for unlocked)
    • 512GB $579.99

Samsung Direct vs. T-Mobile Pre-order:
Samsung offers one time trade-in credit, compare to T-Mobile which spread out credits over 24 months.

T-Mobile Device Unlock:
If purchased directly from Samsung, they would not need 40 days of service requirement due to IMEI not found in T-Mobile system. YMMV, message TForce via Twitter/FB to submit unlock request.

What up with Samsung? S21 is not premium anymore. Feel downgrade/mid range. Like Their TV 7000 and 8000 series are consider mid range now.

Quote from joatmon22 :
Are you sure it's per address? I've never ran into this issue before and I usually order with trade ins directly through Samsung. My orders are usually 2 separate orders for different names (mine and my SO) and never had any issues. When they had the S5 trade in for the Note 8 (after the Note 7 debacle) I actually ordered like 3 different Note 8s all under my name and those went through also. Not saying you're wrong but that have been my experiences. However, I will say that their website/app order process is whack sometimes and does not apply the correct promotions (whether it be codes or edu/military discounts). Occasionally I have to go through the ordering process a few different ways for it to apply the correct amount and take screenshots as proof. One time I placed an order through the app and the checkout screen was showing that I was paying one price but my CC was charged like $30 more.
I remember 1 trade-in per address BS they had with S9, S10 and S20. Can't believe they need to have completed trade-in before you can place another order with trade-in for same address.

If you pay off the EIP, the credits will transfer to account level credits and you'll still get them for the amount of time left on the credits.
Can you explain a little more, im on the stupid side a bit. I got an s20 this past Father's day, I have a good amount of payments left about 12 or something I think...is there a way for me to trade in this current s20 to upgrade to the s21 for free or is that not possible

The pricing to include trade-in is misleading. Kind of like saying to give you a brand new Corolla if you trade-in last year's LS...

For those with S9, it would be a no brainier to trade in for S21 right?
That's what I'm doing. Held out all this time for this moment. $800 value for my $400 3 year old phone LMAO

Make sure you make the 256GB jump as there are no more SD card expansions.

Only if you pay off those 12 payments worth of value all at once. After you get the confirmation email/msg you can trade it in before the deal is over.

Damn they left out S20 FE. S20 FE trade in is $550 at Samsung and $800 at T-Mobile.
Wish that is matched as well.
Exactly...I'll be getting Ultra if Samsung pay $800 for S20FE. I chat with a couple of CSRs but no luck...

This matches the previous best T-mo on Samsung.com deal.

I asked chat support if they would give mea $100 discount/refund, since my order was the old $100 cheaper but $700 trade in T-mo deal, and they said no since they wont match trade in value changes.

After reading some comments on here and looking more into the s21. I'm content with my s20 for now. Maybe I'll shoot for the ultra if I do decide to upgrade later on.

That's not correct. Samsung gives two shits if its under a EIP.

That is a deal between you and your carrier and does not involve Samsung. The only one that does is if you are leasing the phone.

It even says in the FAQ for Samsung trade in that its between you and your carrier for EIP.

I'd say so for sure. I'm going to set my mom up with the s21 from the s9+, it's only $101 after that $800 trade in value through T-Mobile.

Samsung support is (almost) useless. Just place another order if you want and refuse delivery if it's already too late to cancel
