Shortly after the launch of Samsung's Galaxy S21 series, the major network carriers in the U.S. have announced their respective offerings. These deals either slashed the phones' prices or offer them for free with eligible trade-in.
For its part, T-Mobile announced today that the 5G versions of the latest smartphones will be available to its customers for free if they trade in an eligible device. For a qualified trade-in, T-Mobile will offer the Galaxy S21 5G phones for free with 24 monthly bill credits. Customers won't have to add a line or port in a number to avail of this deal.
In case customers don't have an eligible device to trade, they can still get a free S21 5G handset with 24 monthly bill credits if they purchase one and add a line. Alternatively, they can get up to $800 off any other eligible phone if they don't want to pick up a free S21 device.
The free phone offering is also available to T-Mobile for Business customers with 24 monthly bill credits when they add a line on Magenta Business Plus accounts. On top of that, they can get $100 for every activated line. In addition, the new Galaxy Buds Pro is available to purchase via T-Mobile stores today.
Verizon, on the other hand, has also launched additional promotions for the S21 5G series. If you switch to its network, you can get the 128GB variant of the S21+ 5G for free or get $1,000 off any Galaxy S21 device with select trade-in and eligible unlimited plans. For existing customers, Verizon is offering a $600 discount on a Galaxy S21 handset with qualified trade-in on select unlimited plans.
Even without trading in, you can just buy any S21 model in order to get another S21 phone for free or get $1,000 off another phone in the series with select unlimited plans when you add a new line. Your S21 purchase can also get you a Galaxy Watch 3 at a starting price of $199.99.
When you open a Visa Card account with Verizon upon checkout, you can get $100 Verizon Dollars with your S21 purchase. Additionally, there's up to $100 in credit over 24 months when you pay your bills using the Verizon Visa Card.
Meanwhile, AT&T is offering up to $800 off any S21 5G device for new and existing customers when they trade in an eligible handset and pay for a 30-month installment plan. Customers can also save 50% on the Galaxy Buds Pro for a limited period if they purchase a device.
Samsung's latest 5G handsets will be up for grabs on January 29. Pre-orders kick off today via T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T.
