Trade-in and new line discounts
After months of rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is finally here and it’s a huge upgrade over the model that came before it. There were some incredible deals to be had if you preordered which have now come to a close. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some deals to be had if you know where to look. And this is the place to look.
This story is part of Samsung Event, CNET’s collection of news, tips and advice around Samsung’s most popular products.
Right now there are a variety of deals to be had on SIM-free and carrier-provided handsets so you can find the one that best fits your needs. Some carriers will give you the new phone for free in the right circumstances, while other retailers are offering big trade-in discounts. Prefer to just see a discount of cold, hard cash? Amazon has you covered.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the hottest thing in tech right now, and it’s a great buy even at full price. With a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, a larger 3.4-inch outer display and a 6.7-inch foldable inner one, you’re going to get a lot of phone for your money regardless — and a notable upgrade over the older Galaxy Z Flip 4.
