Best Samsung deals for January 2023

If you’re looking for the coolest stuff around this January, look no further than Samsung. Samsung deals are highly sought after. From TVs to cell phones and wearables to appliances, Samsung is always on the cutting edge of technology. It’s not every day that you can get top-notch tech gear at a discounted price, but due to the popularity of Samsung products, there are usually a handful of deals out there if you know where to look. We’ve identified some Samsung sales that you will have a hard time passing up. We recommend shopping those deals sooner, rather than later, because we’re not sure if there will be shipping delays, inventory shortages, or other supply chain problems this year. You can check out all of our top picks below!

Galaxy S22 Ultra — $1,000, was $1,200

Why Buy

  • High accuracy S Pen
  • Nice screen, high refresh rate
  • Great camera
  • Ultra fast processor

The Galaxy S22 Ultra is an all-in-one kind of device that fits into the palm of your hand. Due to the highly accurate pen, called an ‘S Pen’, that comes with it it can feel like a digital planner or even a mini sketch pad if you can find the right app. But if you find too much planning for the future to be on the boring side, you’ll see that the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s screen is primed for fun. It’s 1440p and has a 120Hz refresh rate, which is better than some monitors and perfect for whatever mobile watching or gaming you’re after. Plus, it has an insanely powerful 4nm processor that should hold you over for years to come. Finally, whether its for a selfie or wildlife photos, the S22 Ultra’s intense cameras — which include Nightography mode — are there for you!

Galaxy Watch 5 Pro — $400, was $450

Why Buy

  • 3-day battery life
  • Easy to read screen
  • Great workout companion
  • High quality materials

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the luxury version of the standard Galaxy Watch 5 and Samsung’s semi-foray into the adventure watch market. What it does to really appeal to the average person is give you a decent 3-day battery life and screen worth looking at. The 44-millimeter screen has an always-on AMOLED display and is designed to be used even in full sun. Plus, even though it is tiny, extra care has been put into deepening the contrasts between the darks and the lights, resulting in a screen that’s readable without the need to place your wrist directly in front of your eyeballs. As a health companion, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro has the predictable heart rate monitor, but can also detect you ECG, Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), and has a continuous pulse oximeter. Finally worth mentioning is that the materials of the band and frame of the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro are of a premium quality, including titanium, sapphire, and premium rubber.

65-inch Class TU7000 Crystal UHD 4K Smart TV — $480, was $500

The Samsung TU7000 4K TV, placed on a TV rack.

Why Buy

  • PurColor technology colors
  • UHD quality with direct lit backlighting
  • Auto Game Mode
  • Motion Rate 120 for action and sports

The TU7000 is a TV that is ready to pack a punch without holding back. With features like PurColor, which gives colors an extra layer of tuning for a perfect display, it is no wonder that the 75-inch version of this TV made the top of our best Samsung TV deals list this month. And there are a ton of reasons to bother with all the color differentiation considering the UHD definition of the TU7000. You’ll also have access to Motion Rate 120 to keep blurs off your screen when watching the fastest action movies or quickest baseball pitches. When it’s time to get into a bit of gaming, not only will the Tizen smart OS make it easy to load up what you want from a logically arranged menu, but you’ll also get to experience the TU7000’s Auto Game Mode which will instantly alter the screen to settings better suited for gaming and reduce lag from your controller.

75-inch Class Q70A QLED 4K Smart TV — $1,600, was $2,300

The Samsung Q70A Series QLED 4K TV in a living room.

Why Buy

  • AI processor for 4K upscaling
  • 120Hz refresh rate
  • Great smart features
  • Ultra slim design

The Class Q70A QLED is a TV that’s always fun to look into. It has a lot of the features we expect from a 4K TV, such as a smart operating system and blur smoothing. But you’ll also find quite a few less ubiquitous features and style choices in the Q70A QLED if you look harder, such as the 120Hz refresh rate or the ability to upscale less modern content into 4K using its advanced AI processor. Overall, the Q70A QLED just feels comfortable to use and brings out the best features of a proper QLED screen. Lastly, the TV housing itself is rather remarkable with its AirSlim design that won’t demand a ton of depth to setup in your room. If you want it up next to the wall, you can basically do so if your cord arrangement allows. Speaking of cord arrangement, the Q70A QLED provides a ton of hookups, including HDMI, USB, and LAN so you have the flexibility to the setup you ultimately desire.

Galaxy S22 — $700, was $800

Why Buy

  • Long term software update policy
  • Excellent 50-megapixel main camera
  • Responsive performance
  • AMOLED panel scree

Even though it has been out for a few months and has ‘Pro’ and ‘Ultra’ editions, you can still be sure that the Galaxy S22 is a phone that still has a long life ahead of it. In fact, we admittedly bragged a bit about the phone’s update policy in our initial Galaxy S22 review, mentioning that the Android OS would be updated for at least four years and the security system at least five. Are we any less happy about it now? Not one bit. This is a phone that pushes off forced obsolescence and embraces power. While we don’t perfectly love the ultrawide cam’s warp effects, the 50-megapixel main cam is to die for, especially when the images taken get displayed on the S22’s 6.1-inch AMOLED screen. Finally, get used to great gaming performance with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor that handles even the most demanding of games (on max settings, no less) in a smooth, reliable way.

Best Soundbar Deals: Save on Bose, Samsung, and Sonos
The Samsung 2.1-channel soundbar and included subwoofer set on a media cabinet.

If you're starting the new year with a brand new TV, you might be impressed by the picture but discover the sound is nothing short of disappointing. That's because the slim bezels that are popular on newer TVs leave little room for beefy speakers, so they can sound tinny and quiet. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to this problem: Treat your new TV to a companion soundbar. These low-profile bars sit under your TV and provide a real boost in sound, and many even come with subwoofers for an even more immersive cinematic experience. To save some money on your next sound system purchase, we've rounded up some of the best soundbar deals to be found on the internet.
TCL Alto 6 -- $70, was $80

It's not often you find good quality and budget soundbars, and while the TCL Alto 6 won't win any awards for best soundbar, it's still a great option if you're on a shoestring budget. It's easy to set up, especially if you already have a Roku TV since it integrates easily and is compatible with the Roku remote, which is a big plus. As for streaming, you can do that wirelessly using Spotify, Pandora, and a few others so that you can use it as a standalone music player as well. The audio does well with voices, and you will need to change the mode to get more out of playing music. You will also likely have to pair it with a subwoofer to get the most sound out of it, but as a standalone device, it's still excellent for the price.
