Samsung is hosting a few discounted cuts for some of its current devices at Amazon and Best Buy, one of which includes the folding Galaxy Z Flip phone and Galaxy Watch Active 2 44mm smartwatch for $ 1,380. That’s the normal price for the phone, but the savings come in the form of getting the watch, which costs about $ 249 now, free of charge. Because there was little agreement on the loose version of Z Flip, this is a decent value if you’re thinking of investing now.
This bunch is also active for the Galaxy S20, and similarly, there’s no price drop below its normal $ 1,000 price tag. If you see our coverage deals regularly, you probably already know that it sold for as much as $ 800 to unlock. But if you need a phone now, at least your purchase comes with a pretty big accessory at no extra cost.
It’s worth noting that Samsung is gearing up for the unpacked event next week, where we expect to see a bunch of new devices announced. Needless to say, we expect to see the Galaxy Note 20, and based on this official teaser, the Galaxy Fold 2, the “bean” ears of Samsung beans, a new tablet, and a new Galaxy Watch can take the stage. So, if you want to pretty much save your money today, there may be some great preorder incentives for these devices just around the corner.
Update 11:00 AM ET, July 31: Details have been added about Samsung’s unpacked event, where we expect to announce a large number of new products.
