If you haven't checked out the Galaxy S10E, you definitely should. Samsung's answer to the affordable Apple's iPhone XR. It packs quite the punch, but does not offer everything that the bigger S10 and S10 Plus offer.
If you're interested in purchasing the smartphones, you can do so directly from Samsung, as well as wireless carriers. If you purchase from Samsung, you can trade in your current device (if you qualify for device type) for up to $550 in credit towards your purchase of Galaxy S10 devices. It's also worth mentioning that if you previously preordered the Galaxy S10 device(s) directly from Samsung, the company's initial Galaxy Buds stock has run out. The company is now offering a $130 gift card that can be applied to any purchase from Samsung's online store.
Samsung isn't the only one to offer some sweet deals. Best Buy is already offering up to $650 in savings during the preorder period when you trade and activate a new line on Sprint or Verizon wireless carriers.
