Samsung US drops the Galaxy S22 Ultra price by $125 for Father’s day

Father’s day is in a couple of weeks’ time – what did you get your old man? If the answer is “nothing yet”, have a look at these offers from Samsung US. They follow the familiar formula of discounts, combos, and trade-in credits.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra gets a $125 discount and up to $1,000 of enhanced trade-in credit. Here “enhanced” means that you get the same amount of credit for a phone with a broken screen as you would for a phone in good condition. For example, sending in an S21 Ultra with a cracked screen will net you up to $1,000, which (combined with the discount) will drop the price of this year’s model to just $75 (for an unlocked 128GB unit).

 

Alternatively, you can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, which is equally useful for work and for entertainment. You can get a $100 instant rebate and up to $600 of trade-in credit to reduce the price down to $400. Additionally, you get $200 off Samsung Credit to spend on accessories. You can get the Book Cover Keyboard for $100 (50% off its MSRP) and have another $100 left to spend. You can pick up, say, a small wireless mouse to use with DeX mode or a pair of Galaxy TWS buds.

Headphones would make a nice small gift. The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 is 27% off, meaning that they will cost you $110. Another wearable you might be interested in is the Samsung Galaxy Watch4, which starts at $220 after a $30 discount (Wi-Fi model) or at $250 with a $50 discount (LTE). This is for the 40mm model, if you prefer the larger 44mm watch, add $30 to the prices.
