EDIT 06/27:


The unlocked S22 series phones have gone back up to MSRP, save one, the S22 Ultra 256GB/12GB RAM Unlocked version with activate TODAY with carrler, which is sweetened to $350 off, @ $949.

Other S22 series unlocked with activate today or later seem to have gone back up to MSRP (probably until Friday).

Same up to $800 Samsung Trade in value promo still applies. See below for link for that. And, just to remind everyone, this trade in promo is for IN STORE TRADE & IN STORE PURCHASE (grab/pickup in store or home delivery, but all must originate in store!!!)

If you just want the S22 ultra unlocked activate now 256GB model, with no trade, for $949, then you can order online or in store

=================================================================================

Update 06/13: Discount has lowered to up to $300 off. . .but strangely enough, the biggest $300 discount now comes from Unlocked and Activate LATER/NEVER. Perfect for those on MVNO's or not wanting to sign up for any plan or commitment etc.!!!

i.e.:
S22 Ultra 256GB unlocked activate later/never. . .$999 (128GB versioin same $999)
S22+ 256GB unlocked activate later/never. . .$799 (128GB version also $799)
S22 256GB unlocked activate later/never. . .$699 (128GB version also $699)

Same elevated, in store trade in and purchase SAMSUNG elevated trade in value promo, up to $800, as before, applies (see below for those and links for terms etc.)

=================================================================


Best Buy just lowered their unlocked S22 line phones.

S22 $649.99 is $150 off MSRP. . .S22 unlocked 256GB is better at same $649.99

S22+ $749.99 is $250 off MSRP. . .S22+ unlocked 256GB is better at same $749.99

S22U 128GB is $300 off MSRP

S22U 256GB is $400 off MSRP @ $899 & S22U 512GB $400 off @ $999 (courtesy of mtran1977)

AGAIN, THESE ARE ALL FOR UNLOCKED, ACTIVATE NOW phone purchases. . .
Meaning you buy an unloocked phone with "activate now" on an account with T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.
You don't have to open an additional new line on account, just upgrade a current line, even if it has a financed phone on it. That's ok, as you are paying in full for this new phone, not financing another.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sams...Variations

===============================================================================

on top of this, Samsung is offering up to $800 in trade in credit towards In-Store Trade and In Store Purchase only of unlocked Samsung phone (S22 line, Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3, S21FE phones) for the higher (up to $800) Samsung Trade in Value Promo.

These phones, traded in, will get you an $800 BB Gift Card to apply towards new unlocked Samsung phone. . .

Samsung:
Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, Galaxy Z Fold2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G

Apple:
iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max

Click link below for other phone trade in values, as well as full Terms, etc

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp-...1537879921

This pairs well with all of those here that bought Z Flip 3's recently, with or without added $50 watch deal (See Wiki for watch deal thread), that now wish to trade in that Z Flip 3 for $800 Gift card towards purchase of an unlocked S22 line phone at sales prices as listed above. . .
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Today only: AT&T Ultra S22 256gb any color. New line :$799 upgrade :$849


Original thread title, before FP takeover/change:

Samsung Galaxy S22 series Unlocked phone (activate now) @ Best Buy $150-$400 off plus up to $800 in trade credit (Plus free upgrade to 256GB memory)
===========================================================================================================


THE up to $800 Elevated Trade in Value is FOR IN STORE PURCHASE and TRADE in only, and meant towards purchase of UNLOCKED Samsung phone. NOT FOR online orders! It is a Samsung TIV promo, and you can see all the terms, Trade in Values for various phones, etc. at the link below:

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp-...1537879921

=======================================================================================================================================
$50 Galaxy Watch 4 bundle deal. . .as well as specifically cheap ZF3 purchase see this thread:

Also, See the thread that morphed from just Z Flip 3 for $499 into>>>$800 Trade in Value towards another phone, etc. (pre watch deal):
https://slickdeals.net/f/15797200-best-buy-samsung-z-flip3-arbitrage-100?v=1

And of course, the deal that started off as enhanced BB TIV and morphed into>>>$800 Samsung TIV:
https://slickdeals.net/f/15754645-bestbuy-in-store-trade-increase-galaxy-s22-256gb-unlocked-750-before-trade-in-350?page=30


Refer to these other threads if you want the in's and outs of getting the store rep to actually get $800 trade in value to pop up on their screen, etc. etc. They've really started on different aspects, and morphed into overlapping concepts to get the same or similar deal. . .

Yup. Your device EIP will still get billed at the account level.
06-10-2022 at 01:06 PM
No. Phone has to be paid off per bestbuy terms. Maybe a not so knowleable rep might let u do it without checking.

until late this Sunday evening (if Father's Day oriented) or possibly late next Sunday evening (if on non event 2 week cycle). . .I don't know, but Sunday late at midnight Central is when things usually drop off/change if they're gonna. . .

States like California will charge sales tax on the sticker price and not on the discounted price. So, it depends on which state you are buying it in.

The only difference between the two would be that the T-Mo phones will have the T-Mo related software pre-loaded on the phone.

So if I am currently using a S20+ 128GB (with SD slot...which I got from Google Fi for total cost of $465 after 4 months of service and tax and referral credits) on a Tmobile MVNO would upgrading to a S22+ 256GB be a good deal for total cost of $199+tax since now that the price of the phone for "Activation Later" is same as "Activate Now"? So cost of S22+ would be $799 - $600 instore trade = $199 plus tax on $799. Is it a no brainer or should I keep my S20+? Ultra would be $399 plus tax. Is it a big difference going from S22+ to S22 Ultra and worth the extra $200?

Quote from kousoku :
yup agree, the promotional trade-in values that best buy is doing is much higher than you could get selling the phones even if they were mint and barely used, still very much a good deal.
Do you know if only trade in works? Like just get the $800 without getting the phone?
And if you get the s22u and return, I understand bb is giving $800 back in gc. Can that be used to purchase everything in bb or just Samsung s22 phones?

I'm kind of torn with my second s22 ultra. If I return it, I get my $175 refund and I'd guess an $800 gift card. And at least I still got rid of my z-flip 3.

On the other hand, I may be able to get a $1000 trade in credit towards the s23 ultra or later on maybe a z-fold 4, plus samsungs usual promo of $200-$250 worth of accessories.

The enhanced trade-in value is in-store deal is supposed to be towards a Samsung Flagship phone only, the trade in page mentions this.
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp-cell-phones/unlocked-samsung-galaxy-trade-in/pcmcat1621537879921.c?... [bestbuy.com]

However someone have gotten lucky with some associates just handing them the giftcard since the phone wasn't in stock, people at my store knew what was up and wouldn't hand over the card, it had to be applied towards a phone as mentioned.

I imagine, if you end up returning the phone they probably give you store credit, is what I'd assume but I'd only be speculating at this point.

That's what I did, bought 2 phones from ebay, trade in bestbuy with different order. Both pay credit card in full, select ship to store instead of gift card. Walk away with gift cards.then login bestbuy.com to cancel order.then go online place order with 2 gift cards. You might keep the gift card buy whatever you want.

No string attached to the 800 gift card but you have to pay restocking fee which is $45.

I walked away with an 800$ gift card, once your trade in is complete there is no requirement to actually buy an Samsung phone.

the rep 1st loads 800$ onto a gift card, at this point you can ask for the gift card and keep it. which is what i did.

Might will keep it for something else.

Actually there is a requirement from the Samsung to apply it only towards the new flagship Samsung phone. Rep showed me this one the promo terms. But I you will be lucky you can get a rep who doesn't know exact terms and will just hand you the gc
