Up to $1,200 off with trade-in + free storage upgrade
Though they’re facing some competition from Google and Motorola, Samsung’s unique Z series phones are still our overall favorite foldables on the market right now. The large-screen Z Fold 5 is our favorite option for productivity and entertainment, and while it’s certainly not the cheapest phone on the market with a substantial $1,800 starting price, there are plenty of ways to get your hands on one for less right now.
Select retailers are offering as much as $300 off unlocked models, and you can save even more if you’ve got an old phone to trade in or perhaps need a new line of service. And to help you take full advantage of these offers, below we’ve rounded up some of the best Z Fold 5 deals out there right now. We’ll continue to update this page as offers come and go, so be sure to check back often for the best prices available.

Best Galaxy Z Fold 5 deals
There are a number of benefits that come with ordering your new Z Fold 5 from Samsung directly, including access to exclusive color variants. You’ll also get a free storage upgrade, which means you’ll get the 512GB model for $1,800, the same price as the basic 256GB model — though only if you opt for the phantom black color variant.
Plus, you can score serious savings if you’ve got an old phone to trade in. Samsung is offering up to $1,200 off, with the latest phones from Apple and Samsung netting you the biggest discount. And even old and damaged phones will still net you a minimum discount of $200. Samsung also accepts select tablets and smartwatches for trade-in for a smaller discount.
Samsung is also offering a 15% student discount.
Amazon is one of the only places offering straightforward discounts on unlocked models of the Z Fold 5 at the moment. You can save $300 on all colors and configurations, which drops the 256GB model down to $1,500, and the 512GB model down to $1,620. Just note that Amazon is not carrying any of the 1TB models at the moment.
Best Buy has matched Amazon’s offer on the Z Fold 5, and you can currently pick up all configurations, including the 1TB model, for $300 off the list price. Plus, you’ll get a free $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase.
Best Buy also has its own trade-in program where you can save up to $450 on unlocked models in exchange for your old phone. Verizon customers will also save $350 automatically and will get enhanced trade-in credit that can save you up to $1,000, though only the Phantom Black variant of the 256GB model is available.
AT&T is offering up to $1,000 off the Z Fold 5 with an eligible trade-in, but you’ll have to purchase the phone on an installment plan to take advantage of the offer. You’ll get the full discount for any Galaxy S, Note or Z series phone, or any phone valued at just $35 or more. AT&T even accepts old and damaged devices, so you may be surprised at what you can get for the cracked phone collecting dust in your drawer. The discount is applied as bill credits over 36 months and drops the price for the Z Fold 5 down to just $22.23 per month.
Verizon customers adding a new line of service can save up to $1,000 with an eligible trade-in. Or, if you’re an existing customer who qualifies for an upgrade, you can still save up to $800 with just a trade-in. Verizon is also offering some other bonuses, including $360 off a Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, and $670 off a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G with the purchase — though note that you’ll need a new line of service for these devices as well.
T-Mobile is the only carrier out there at the moment offering a discount on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 that doesn’t require a trade-in. You can save up to $1,000 when adding a new line of service on a Go5G Next or Go5G Plus plan, or $600 when adding a new line on another qualifying service plan. If you do have an old phone to trade in, you can save up to $1,000 if you already have or switch to a Go5G Next or Plus plan, or up to $500 if you have another qualifying service plan.
