This is the last opportunity for back-to-school Samsung deals


Back-to-school is still in full swing, but not for much longer

Many states have already had their first day of school, but others aren’t returning for a few more weeks. So you can still find big savings across several retailers and online stores. Samsung is among them, with a suite of big deals for all of its brand-new Galaxy products that launched Aug. 11. 

Considering how heavily schoolwork today makes use of tablets and smartphones, grabbing a new one can make it easier and faster to complete tasks. Plus, a new smartwatch can help an older child or college-bound adult track their health to ensure they’re in the best position to absorb new information.

Samsung’s back-to-school sale details

Some of the best back-to-school deals still available are for Samsung’s newly released line of phones, smartwatches and tablets. To help you pick the best deal, here are the details.

  • Galaxy Z Flip5: There are multiple ways to save on this phone, including $200 to $600 off with an eligible phone trade-in, 30% off when bundled with the Galaxy Tab S9 or 25% off when bundled with the Galaxy Watch 6. AT&T and Verizon are also offering up to $1,000 off with an eligible trade-in for new and existing customers. T-Mobile offers the same $1,000 deal and also offers it for those adding a new line. Finally, students get an extra 10% off.
  • Galaxy Z Fold5: This phone offers similar deals to the Flip5. This includes Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Watch6 bundle deals and the three carrier deals. You can also get up to $1,000 off with an eligible trade-in not attached to those carriers, and a free memory upgrade on select models. Finally, students get an additional 15% off.
  • Galaxy Watch6 and 6 Classic: Smaller tech means smaller deals. You can get up to $250 off with an eligible trade-in and students get an extra 15% off.
  • Galaxy Tab S9, S9 Plus and S9 Ultra: Each tablet goes up in price with enhanced specs, but the deals remain the same regardless of version. You can get up to $650 off with an eligible trade-in and a free Book Cover Keyboard Slim (a $139.99 to $199.99 value). Students also get 15% off.
