US carriers are selling the Galaxy S24 for free
Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S24 series have begun through American carriers Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Xfinity Mobile, and they will deliver the new flagships to customers for free or at significant discounts under certain conditions.
Verizon customers can trade in any old Samsung phone, regardless of condition, and get a free Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Plus with the carrier’s unlimited plan.
The situation is different when it comes to getting the Galaxy S24 Ultra, as Verizon isn’t giving it away completely for free, instead dropping the price of the phone down to around $300. Samsung is also giving away a Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Tab, though customers must be on an active carrier plan to take advantage of the offer.
AT&T has a similar trade-in program with Verizon this year, offering a free Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24+ for any Samsung phone, regardless of year or condition.
AT&T is offering a discount of up to $1,000 on the price of the Samsung S24 Ultra, and customers will receive a free storage upgrade to a higher configuration if pre-ordered by January 30.
T-Mobile offers the same Galaxy S24 trade-in plan as its competitors, making it completely free for its customers.
Unlike the other two carriers, T-Mobile customers have to pay at least $100 for the Galaxy S24 Plus or $600 for the S24 Ultra. T-Mobile’s trade-in deal might not be the most attractive plan, but the operator is offering up to $1,000 off the S24 Ultra when you purchase Go5G Plus or Go5G Next subscription service.
Xfinity Mobile offers up to $800 in trade-in credit and double the storage for the Galaxy S24 model of the customer’s choice. Those who do not have a phone to exchange will also receive a $500 discount if they pre-purchase by January 30, which is a significant deal.
