A new smartphone is an essential part of back to school shopping. Fortunately, there are plenty of cell phone deals happening this week for every budget. One of my favorite deals comes from Best Buy, which is slashing the price of mobiles in our best phones of 2023 guide.

For a limited time, Best Buy is knocking up to $300 off all Galaxy S23 series smartphones. After discount, prices start as low as $699, which is one of the best back to school sales I've seen and one of the cheapest Galaxy S23 deals of all time. Best Buy isn't the only retailer with phone deals. Amazon and Samsung are also offering discounts, although the latter requires that you trade-in an older phone. Below I've rounded up the best deals happening now.
