If you are considering purchasing a member of Samsung’s ultra-high-end Galaxy S22 family for more than a while, you probably already know that it’s incredibly easy to save up to… 100 percent off the list price of one of these absolute mobile beasts.
After considering the $800 price cut, you’ll want to spend just $200 for the S22 Plus and Z Flip 3 5G, $400 for the S22 Ultra, and $1,000 for the Z Fold 3. Sure, if you prefer the getting a new line of unlimited Magenta Max service from an old handset, you can still do that without any other commitments, although unfortunately Samsung’s flagships don’t qualify for T-Mo’s huge “trade-in only” savings.
Instead, here’s how the comprehensive eligibility lists are broken down at the time of this writing:
Up to $800 off with the following trade-in:
- iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS/XS Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 12/Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 13/Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 ProMax;

Up to $400 off with the following trade-in:

- Google Pixel 3/XL, Pixel 3a/XL, Pixel 4/XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G;
- LG Velvet, V50 ThinQ, V60 ThinQ.
Keep in mind that whatever you’re thinking of trading in must be in “good” condition to be accepted, and to get that maximum trade-in value you must also be a Magenta Max subscriber or switch to that “premium ” subscription. Otherwise, the $800 and $400 credits will shrink to $600 and $300 respectively, which is also decent, but not quite the same.
