Best deals for the new Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: Samsung, Verizon, and more!

Samsung has announced its newest flagship device, the Galaxy S20 FE. Coming in at a cool $700, the Galaxy S20 FE straddles the line between affordability and premium specs and offers access to 5G without needing to pay at least $1k for Samsung’s other flagship lines. Our Galaxy S20 FE review states that this phone “packs the best of the Galaxy S20 into a more affordable package”, and whether you get the 4G or 5G model, you know you are getting quality.

The Galaxy S20 FE shares a lot of the same features as its more expensive siblings including a gorgeous 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Android 10 with One UI 2.5 (and One UI 3.0 down the line), a Snapdragon 865 processor, and up to 256GB of storage. In our iPhone 12 vs. Samsung Galaxy S20 FE article, we compared the two affordable flagships to find out which is better, and in terms of screen and battery life Samsung’s phone wins out.

While $700 is a fair amount less than most Samsung flagships, that’s still a solid chunk of change for most people. Don’t worry though, as we’ve rounded up the best deals including ways to save big by trading in or buying multiple devices. It’s also one of the most fun devices Samsung has launched recently, with lots of different colors for you to pick from! I’m partial to the orange one, myself.

Here are the best deals for the Galaxy S20 FE!

Where to Pre-order the Galaxy S20 FE

Right now in the US, you can pick up a Galaxy S20 FE from the typical retailers. If you’re looking for an unlocked Galaxy S20 FE deal, you can pick one up from Amazon, Samsung, or Best Buy. If being locked into a carrier isn’t a concern, you can also head to Verizon or AT&T for big savings.

Picking up a new device straight from the source is never a bad idea, and Samsung has some of the best Galaxy S20 FE deals around. First, you can bring the total price all the way down to $250 with the right trade-in. On top of that, you’ll also get six months of Spotify Premium and four months of YouTube Premium, completely free. Always a nice bonus.

If you go with Sprint or AT&T, you’ll save $200 total when signing up for a monthly payment plan when activating today. With Verizon, the deal becomes even better, with a $250 discount.

As always, Amazon will have the most convenient way of getting the Galaxy S20 FE, with Prime Shipping available for select colors. Currently, though, there are no sales on the Galaxy S20 FE, so you’ll be paying for the Amazon convenience. If you have an Amazon Prime Rewards card, you can opt to pay $38.89 over 18 months.
