It's that time. Samsung announced the Galaxy S20 series last week, and if you're down for it, you can pre-order yours starting today. Obviously, you have your choice in where you can buy it from, including Samsung.com, Best Buy, your carrier, and more, and there are lots of deals.
AT&T's deal is that you can get up to a thousand dollars off the cost of the device. That means that for the $999.99 Galaxy S20, you can get it for free. Or, you can get $1,000 off the $1,199.99 price of the 128GB S20+, the $1,349.99 price of the 512GB S20+, the $1,399.99 price of the 128GB S20 Ultra, or the $1,599.99 price of the 512GB S20 Ultra.
In order to qualify for the deal, you need to open up a new line and you need to trade in an eligible smartphone. Also, that line needs to be ported from another carrier; otherwise, it's a $500 credit.
Devices on the eligible smartphone list include the iPhone 7 and later, Galaxy S8/Note8 and later, Google Pixel 2 and later, LG G8/V40 and later, Moto Z4, RED Hydrogen One, Razer Phone 2, and OnePlus 5. Note that AT&T doesn't explicitly say that all of those devices are eligible for the full thousand-dollar credit.
Other deals that AT&T has include $50 off of the new Galaxy Buds+ when buying an eligible Samsung device, and $300 in bill credits if you're upgrading a line to the S20 series.

Sprint has a "lease one, get one" deal. That means that you get one free, providing that you're adding a new line for the second one. The primary line can still be an upgrade.
You can also get $200 in Samsung credit for pre-ordering the Galaxy S20 Ultra. That credit can be redeemed at Samsung.com.

T-Mobile also has a BOGO offer, and it's very similar to Sprint's. You need to activate a new line for the free device, and the credit for the free one can be for up to $1,000. You also need to be upgrading an existing line (or starting a new line, if that's what you want) on the payment plan. Note that you can also use this plan to grab a Galaxy S10 or Note10.
You can also get up to half off the price of the device with an eligible trade-in, although there doesn't seem to be an easy way to find the trade-in list.
Finally, you'll get a $200 credit from Samsung.com when you pre-order anything from the S20 family.

The first offer from Verizon isn't quite a BOGO, since the carrier doesn't sell the regular Galaxy S20. If you buy one on an installment plan and add a new line, you can get $1,050 off of a second one. Obviously, the second device isn't quite free, but it's still dirt cheap.
You can also save up to $300 off the price of an S20 series device by trading in an existing smartphone, and if you have a Verizon Unlimited plan.
Moreover, if you buy the Galaxy S20+ 5G, you can get $150 off, and that's for both new and existing customers. This offer can be combined with either of the above two.
You'll also get the $200 credit to Samsung.com, and that's included with all above offers. Finally, also included as long as you have a Verizon Unlimited plan is a six-month subscription to the Hatch game streaming service.

Samsung's deals are pretty straightforward, since there's no business with activating phone lines. You can get the Galaxy S20 or S20+ for as little as $399.99 with an eligible trade-in, and you'll get a $150 Samsung.com credit. You'll also need to use Samsung Financing.
The company is promising the Galaxy S20 Ultra for as low as $799.99 with an eligible trade-in, and that comes with a $200 credit.
For an eligible trade-in, you can get the full $700 credit with a Samsung Galaxy Note10, Note10+, Note10 5G, an iPhone 11 Pro, and an iPhone 11 Pro Max. You can get a $600 credit for a Galaxy S10, S10+, S10 5G, iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, Google Pixel 4, and Pixel 4 XL. From there, trade-in values drop to $300.

Best Buy is offering up to $850 off the cost of the handset with a qualified trade-in and activation of the device. This includes $150 of instant savings, and what seems to be the same trade-in scale that Samsung.com uses.
You'll also get $200 of Samsung.com credit.

Walmart's deal is pretty simple. You'll get $100 in Samsung credit on the S20, $150 credit on the S20+, and $200 credit on the S20 Ultra, and then you'll get $200 of instant savings if you activate the device on a postpaid plan. Note that you won't get the instant savings on an unlocked or prepaid phone.

If you purchase an S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra from Amazon, you can get a free pair of Galaxy Buds (not Galaxy Buds+), and a DUO Pad wireless charger.
