This weekend’s Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 pre-orders could save you $1,500

Looking for a pre-order on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Galaxy Z Flip 3? We’ve been tracking deals on both devices since their initial reveal on Thursday and we think there are two promotions that easily stand out amongst the crowd.

First up, for those who prefer unlocked deals, we’d recommend the Samsung Store’s enticing pre-order bonus of $200 store credit. Available on both devices, this promotion will give you a ton of pocket money to spend on Samsung’s excellent (and vast) inventory of products. Get some wireless earbuds, a couple of chargers, put it towards a smartwatch, or, alternatively – put $100 towards upgrading your device’s storage capacity. 

This latter option is particularly good in our eyes as it’ll essentially allow you to score a 512GB Fold 3 or 256GB Flip 3 for the same price as the baseline version – and get $100 on the side too. Also available at Samsung are a myriad of trade-in rebates, which you can stack on top of this pre-order bonus. 

Speaking of trade-ins, our second recommendation for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 pre-orders is at Verizon. Its whopping trade-in rebates of up to $1,500 are currently the biggest we’ve found at any carrier so far. That said, as you’d expect to get the biggest saving you’ll need to switch over from another carrier. Existing customers can still keep their line and upgrade for a saving of up to $500, however, or instead choose to get a $1,000 saving on a second device when they purchase the first outright with a new plan – a particularly good option for multi-line users.
