It's not overstating things to describe the price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 as astronomical. But an early Black Friday deal through the phone maker makes this foldable device substantially cheaper than your typical flagship.
Right now, Samsung is offering the Galaxy Z Fold 4 for $619 with trade-in, which is $1,300 off its regular price. Samsung's best offer covers the 512GB version of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which normally commands the tidy sum of $1,919. (If you don't have a phone to trade-in, you can still shave $400 to $500 off the cost of the phone, depending on whether you get the phone unlocked or through a specific carrier.)
Galaxy Z Fold 4 (512GB):
$1,919 $619 w/ trade-in @ Samsung
Combine an immediate discount of $400 to $500 with credits from trading in devices, and you can get the 512GB version of Samsung's foldable phone for as little as $619. Samsung has a similar deal on the 256GB version, but the savings aren't as substantial. Samsung sells the phone unlocked, but you can also buy a version tied to a specific carrier.
An unlocked Galaxy Z Fold 4 gets a $400 instant rebate, as do versions tied to Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile and US Cellular customers get the $500 rebate.
But you can save even more money on a Galaxy Z Fold 4 purchase by trading in a device, with Samsung trade-ins fetching the largest return. Samsung says it will give back up to $1,000 in credits, with newer models getting the biggest return. But even devices like the original Galaxy Z Fold or the Galaxy Note 20 can fetch you rebates of $500 or 800, respectively.
You're not even limited to phones. Samsung also accepts tablets and watches for trade-in and you can trade-in up to two devices to maximize no return.
Nothing to trade in? Samsung will still take another $100 off the price of a Galaxy Z Fold 4 just because it likes your moxie.
The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the best foldable phone yet from Samsung. Our Galaxy Z Fold 4 review praised the upgraded 50MP main camera and a new productivity-boosting taskbar on the phone's expansive 7.6-inch main display. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 also works with Samsung's S Pen, though you'll have to buy the stylus separately. Fortunately, you'll have plenty of extra cash on hand to do just that, thanks to Samsung's discounted pricing.
