Best deals, pricing, trade-in values, and availability


Samsung’s new Galaxy S21 series is now shipping to buyers, and just like last year, there are three models to choose from. Even though all of them — the S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra — are cheaper than their S20 counterparts, they can still cost you up to $1,200. Finding the best deal possible could save you hundreds of dollars.

In this roundup, we’ll go over all the ways you can buy the Galaxy S21 series in the United States, including both carrier versions and carrier-unlocked phones.

Samsung is selling the S21 series through its online store, carrier-unlocked for use on any major US network. The Galaxy S21 is $799.99, S21+ is $999.99, and the S21 Ultra is $1,199.99.

Samsung is also throwing in four months of YouTube Premium (if you haven’t redeemed free service before), some Samsung store credit ($50 for S21, $75 for S21+, $100 for S21 Ultra), and a Galaxy SmartTag. Also, if you’re a student or teacher, you can save a bit more money with Samsung’s educational discount.

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is selling the S21 series for the standard MSRP pricing: $799.99 for the S21, $999.99 for the S21+, and $1,199.99 for the S21 Ultra. With the carrier’s payment plans, the S21 is $33.34/mo for 24 months, the S21+ is $41.67/mo, and the S21 Ultra is $50/month.

T-Mobile is also offering trade-in discounts, but only if you pay for an S21 using a monthly payment plan, and the savings is applied using bill credits (so you won’t save money if you decide to switch carriers). Below are the estimated values from T-Mobile’s website.

T-Mobile also has a buy-one-get-one deal on S21, Z Fold2, and Z Flip phones, if both phones will be used on separate lines. The discount comes in the form of bill credits, and it looks like you can’t use both the trade-in promotion and the BOGO deal — you have to pick one or the other. More information is available at T-Mobile’s website.

Verizon is selling the Galaxy S21 for $799.99 (or $33.33/mo for 24 months), the S21+ for $999.99 ($41.66/mo for 24 months), and the S21 Ultra for $1,199.99 (or $39.99/mo for 24 months). Just like most other retailers and carriers, you can save up to $600 by trading in an old phone. Here are the estimated values from Verizon’s website:

Verizon also has a buy-one-get-one deal for adding new unlimited lines, or you can save up to $250 when you buy an eligible smartwatch with your S21.

If you’re on AT&T, you can get the Galaxy S21 for $799.99 (or $26.67/mo for 30 months), the S21+ for $999.99 ($33.34/mo for 30 months), and the S21 Ultra for $1,199.99 (or $40/mo for 30 months). AT&T will also take up to $800 off the price if you trade in a valid device and subscribe to one of AT&T’s unlimited plans — the carrier’s website used to list exact values for each phone, but now just says $800 for all options. You’ll have to go an AT&T store or contact support to know exactly how much you’ll get for your phone.

Google Fi

Google only recently started selling Samsung phones on its carrier, but Google Fi is already selling the Galaxy S21 series. Similar to other carriers and stores, the S21 is available for $799.99 ($33.33/mo), the S21+ for $999.99 ($41.67/mo), and the S21 Ultra for $1,199.99 ($50/mo).

Google isn’t offering any trade-in discounts, but you can get 50% off through bill credits when you add a new line, or get $300 bill credit (or $400 for the S21+/S21 Ultra) when you upgrade. Google is also throwing in a Galaxy SmartTag, and while the company was offering Samsung store credit with each purchase during the pre-order period, that seems to be gone now.

The Verizon-owned carrier Visible will be selling the Galaxy S21 for $792 and the S21+ for $984. The Galaxy S21 Ultra seemingly won’t be available, but it should still work if you buy it unlocked from Samsung directly.

Visible doesn’t have any trade-in promotions, but the carrier will give you $200 of Samsung store credit for buying accessories (or anything else Samsung sells) after 32 days of active service. If you’re a new customer porting a number from “an eligible carrier,” you can also get a pair of Galaxy Buds Live.

Visible previously said the phones would become available to purchase on January 29th, but as of when this article was last updated, the S21 series is still marked as coming soon.

If you’re on US Cellular, you can buy the S21 for $799.99 ($26/mo for 30 months), the S21+ for $999.99 ($33.33/mo for 30 months), or the S21 Ultra for $1,999.99 ($39.99/mo for 30 months).

There aren’t any trade-in deals available, but US Cellular will give you an S21 (or the equivalent discount on an S21+/S21 Ultra) for free if you switch to the carrier. Current customers get $400 off any of the three phones, with no trade-in or plan requirements.
