The Samsung Galaxy S24 line of smartphones has been announced, and time is running out to get a pre-order. The phone is officially available January 30, so these phone deals are only available for another day. One of the more tantalizing and obvious offers is at Amazon, where you can get a $50, $150 or $200 Amazon gift card when you buy the S24, S24+ and S24 Ultra, respectively. Sounds like free money, right? Maybe, but there’s a better deal on Samsung’s site. Let’s break it down.

Why you should pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S24 at Samsung

Buy something from the Samsung Galaxy S24 range and you’re scoring one of the best phones out there. That’s going to be good at any price but why not save even more by buying through Samsung?

At the moment, you can pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S24 and get up to $550 enhanced trade-in by trading in an eligible phone, along with $25 Samsung credit, a free storage upgrade doubling your storage, along with a possible 5% student discount if you’re eligible. Even better, use our link and you get an extra $50 Samsung credit which you can put towards new earphones, a smartwatch or something else. The Samsung Galaxy S24 is a delight with its 6.2-inch screen now featuring 2,600 nits of peak brightness along with a variable 120Hz refresh rate. New AI-powered features enrich your experience while One UI 6 is a delight.

All that comes with the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus too although you get a larger 6.7-inch screen and a Quad HD+ display rather than the full HD+ of the standard S24. The deal is better for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Plus too. Via Samsung, you get up to $650 enhanced trade-in along with $75 Samsung credit and the aforementioned storage upgrade. 7.5% student discount is available while using our link gives you an extra $50 Samsung credit.

Go for the ultimate phone and no doubt one to top the best Android phone list — the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra — and you reap even more rewards. The phone offers a sizeable 6.8-inch screen with a gorgeous QHD+ resolution and variable refresh rate. Powerful camera lenses and meaningfully applied AI along with a Live Translate feature all add up to make this a useful as well as fun phone. Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra today and you can enjoy up to $750 enhanced trade-in, double the storage, $100 Samsung credit, and 15% student discount for eligible folk. Use our link and you also get an extra $50 Samsung credit to use towards a great accessory.

Amazon’s deal looks good on the surface but buying direct from Samsung almost always leads to a better deal assuming you have a phone to trade in. Check it out now before the deal ends soon with the phone arriving imminently.

Holding the green Samsung Galaxy S23.

Though the Samsung Galaxy S24 and its entire range is now available, one can't forget about the previous generation. The Galaxy S23 is still a great entry-level Galaxy S series phone.

But despite all that, it's not immune to bumps, scratches, and drops. Your phone arrived pristine and new, and the best Samsung Galaxy S23 cases will help to keep it that way.

The best Samsung phones in 2024: our 8 favorite Galaxy handsets
A person holding the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy S24+.

Samsung is one of the most recognizable names in modern smartphones. It has a well-deserved reputation for offering an expansive lineup of great phones with something for just about everyone. This means if you're looking for an Android phone, you'll easily find a Samsung model that's worth considering based on your needs and budget. In fact, the number of choices can be a bit overwhelming, but the good news is that we've explored the entire range and highlighted the best Samsung smartphones you can buy in 2024.

But if this year's Plus doesn't tickle your fancy, we have so many other great Samsung smartphones that one is sure to be perfect for you.
