Want to buy the S20? Here’s where you can save the most money.
Samsung’s latest and greatest — the Galaxy S20 — has arrived. It’s packed with impressive specs and features, making it one of the most well-rounded phones you can buy in 2020. You also have plenty of options to choose from, with Samsung offering the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra all at the same time.
However, as appealing as the new phones are, they’re going to cost you. The base Galaxy S20 has a steep starting price of $1000, the S20+ kicks things up to $1200, and you’ll pay a hefty $1400 for the privilege of owning the top-tier S20 Ultra.
If you’re interested in picking up an S20 for yourself but have sticker shock from those price tags, fear not. We’ve gathered up all of the best deals and discounts on the S20 to show you how you can get Samsung’s latest flagship without totally breaking the bank.
- Best Buy
- Sam’s Club
- Boost Mobile
- U.S. Cellular
- Xfinity Mobile
Starting first with Samsung, arguably the best place to buy the S20 from, you can buy all three models of the new phone — the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.
There are a couple of different promos being offered, the easiest of which to get is up to $200 in credits to use for future purchases on Samsung’s website. Just pre-order one of the phones and you’ll get free money. The breakdown is as follows:
- $100 credit if you pre-order the Galaxy S20
- $150 credit if you pre-order the Galaxy S20+
- $200 credit if you pre-order the Galaxy S20 Ultra
If you have a phone to trade-in, things get even better. You can get up to $700 off when trading in a phone, and the credit is offered instantly at the time of purchase. Here are a few examples of what Samsung’s offering:
- Galaxy Note 10 — $700 credit
- iPhone 11 Pro — $700 credit
- Galaxy S10 — $600 credit

Samsung makes it easy to save on a new S20. If you’re just buying the phone and nothing more, you can get up to $200 in credits for future purchases. If you have a phone to trade-in, you can potentially get $700 off your purchase.
Amazon is the largest online retailer on the planet, so it shouldn’t be any surprise that it’s selling the Galaxy S20. First, let’s start off with the basics.
All three versions are up for grabs on Amazon, meaning you can buy the S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. All four colors are also here, so whether you want Cloud Blue, Cloud Pink, Cosmic Black, or Cosmic Gray, Amazon has you covered. The phones are eligible for Prime shipping, meaning you’ll get one or two-day delivery depending on where you live.
You can buy the phones outright at the normal retail prices, but you’ll definitely want to pick up the bundle Amazon is selling.
No matter which model you buy, you can get it with a free pair of Galaxy Buds and Samsung’s Duo Wireless Charging Station — a total value of almost $160. These are the first-gen Galaxy Buds and not the new Galaxy Buds+, but it’s still a fantastic deal.
From $1000 at Amazon
Although Amazon isn’t offering direct discounts on the Galaxy S20, it is throwing in a free accessory bundle. Pre-order the phone, and you’ll get free Galaxy Buds and Duo Wireless Charging Station — a $160 value!
Best Buy is the go-to electronics retailer for a lot of folks in the U.S., and as you’d expect, it’s selling the entire Galaxy S20 lineup in all of its glory. Whether you want to buy the S20 on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, or unlocked, Best Buy has you covered.
Right off the bat, pre-ordering the S20 from Best Buy will get you up to $200 in credits to use on Samsung’s website for a future purchase. Just pre-order the phone and you get the credit.
If you have a phone to trade-in, the savings really start to add up. After eligible trade-in and activation of your new phone, Best Buy is advertising the following prices:
- Galaxy S20 — $149.99 ($6.24/month for 24 months)
- Galaxy S20+ — $349.99 ($14.58/month for 24 months)
- Galaxy S20 Ultra — $549.99 ($22.91/month for 24 months)
That’s a savings of $850 for each phone, which definitely isn’t something to scoff at.
Finally, Best Buy is the only place where you can get the S20 in an exclusive Aura Blue color.

With a bit of work and patience, you can save big on the S20 when you get it from Best Buy. After trading in an eligible phone and properly activating the S20, you can save up to $850 — not to mention the $200 Samsung credit that’s offered with your pre-order.
Sam’s Club might not be the first place you think of looking when going out to buy a new phone, but if you’re in the market for a Galaxy S20, it’s definitely worth checking out.
You can get all three models of the S20 at Sam’s Club, and pre-orders open on February 12 at 12:01 AM ET. If you place your pre-order between then and March 1 at 11:59 PM ET, you’ll get a $200 Sam’s Club eGift card.
Sam’s Club does require that you get the S20 on an installment plan with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or a two-year agreement with U.S. Cellular, so keep that in mind. You’ll also need to make sure the purchase is completed between March 6 and March 8.
On top of the $200 Sam’s Club eGift card, pre-ordering an S20 will also get you up to $200 in credits for use at Samsung’s website.
From $1000 at Sam’s Club
For Sam’s Club shoppers, you can get up to $400 in free money when pre-ordering the S20 — including a $200 Sam’s Club eGift card and a $200 credit for Samsung’s website.
AT&T is also carrying every version of the S20, so whether you want the regular S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra, you can get it here. In addition to buying the phones outright at the full retail prices, AT&T also offers 30-month financing with 0% interest:
- Galaxy S20 — $33.34/month for 30 months
- Galaxy S20+ — $40/month for 30 months
- Galaxy S20 Ultra — $46.67/month for 30 months
If you sign up for a new AT&T Unlimited Extra or AT&T Unlimited Elite plan, you’ll be able to get a Galaxy S20 for free or a Galaxy S20+ for $200. Along with buying the new plan, you’ll also need to port over an existing number, purchase the phone on an installment plan, and trade-in an eligible phone. Those are quite a few hoops to jump through, but it could potentially save you a lot of money.
From $33/month at AT&T
If you can jump through all of AT&T’s various hoops, you could get a Galaxy S20 for free or an S20+ for $200. Otherwise, its 30-month financing plans have the phones starting at just $33.34/month.
Boost Mobile is a pre-paid wireless provider that’s powered by Sprint’s network, and if it’s your carrier of choice, it’s got you covered with the Galaxy S20.
Boost is only selling the baseline S20, which means no S20+ or S20 Ultra. You’ll also need to buy the phone outright at the normal retail price of $1000. If you switch to Boost from another company, you can get up to four lines with unlimited data for $100/month.
If you’re interested, you’ll be able to buy the S20 on Boost starting March 6.
$1000 at Boost Mobile
Boost Mobile is skipping over the S20+ and S20 Ultra, and instead just selling the regular Galaxy S20. You’ll pay the full $1000 retail price to own the phone, but switching over to Boost could save you money on your monthly wireless bill.
For those of you that rely on Big Yellow for your wireless service, you’ll be able to get the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra with some impressive savings to boot. You can buy the phones outright, or take advantage of monthly financing.
Sprint has two offers you’ll want to keep your eyes on, the first of which lets you get a Galaxy S20 for $0/month when you trade in a Galaxy S8 or newer. Even better, the phone can be in “any condition.” You will need to switch to Sprint from another carrier in order to get this deal, but if you’ve been thinking about making the transition anyways, this is a solid promo.
If you’re already a Sprint customer but still want to get your hands on the S20, leasing the S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra will allow you to get another S20 for free when you put both on a Sprint Flex lease plan.
From $1000 at Sprint
Sprint has two notable deals for the S20. If you switch from another carrier, you can get the phone for free just by trading in a Galaxy S8 or newer. Otherwise, existing customers that lease an S20 will get another one at no extra cost.
T-Mobile, everyone’s favorite Un-Carrier, will sell every model of the S20 family. That includes the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra (you know the drill by now). You can buy the phones outright if you want, or finance them over the course of 24 months while paying 0% interest.
- Galaxy S20 — $0 down | $41.67/month for 24 months
- Galaxy S20+ — $150 down | $50/month for 24 months
- Galaxy S20 Ultra — $200 down | $58.24/month for 24 months
As for deals and discounts, T-Mobile customers can get up to half off the price of any Galaxy S20 when trading in an eligible device. There’s also a BOGO deal worth checking out, which lets you buy one S20 and get another for free when adding a line to your account. Alternatively, you can get a $1000 credit and put that towards an S20+ or S20 Ultra and greatly reduce your out-of-pocket costs.
Tying all of this together, you’ll get up to $200 in credits for Samsung’s website just for placing a pre-order.
From $42/month from T-Mobile

U.S. Cellular isn’t the largest carrier out there, but if you rely on its service for your wireless coverage, you can rest assured that it’s carrying the entire Galaxy S20 family. At its normal retail prices, U.S. Cellular will offer all three phones on 30-month installment plans.
- Galaxy S20 — $33.30/month for 30 months

Verizon offers some of the best wireless coverage in the United States, and it’ll officially begin pre-orders for the S20+ and S20 Ultra on February 21 at 12:01 AM ET. Regular sales begin on March 6 and the phones will be offered both online and in Verizon stores.
The S20+ will set you back $49.99/month over the course of 24 months, with the S20 Ultra going for $58.33/month for 24 months. Those payment plans come with 0% interest, so in total you’re still paying the normal retail price of $1200 and $1400, respectively.
