If you’ve shopped for a new phone lately, you’ll have seen how steep the prices can be. If you don’t want to shell out the cash for the latest model, there are other options that can save you hundreds. Refurbished devices are much cheaper than buying something new.
Right now, Woot has a large selection of refurbished Samsung phones on sale starting as low as $116. There are plenty of powerful devices to choose from, including the base S22 model and S22 Ultra, along with the Note 20. These deals are live now through Dec. 30, while supplies last. Some of these refurbished models tend to sell out quickly, so we’d recommend placing your order soon if there’s a specific phone you’re hoping to grab during this sale.
If you’re looking for a phone from the S22 lineup, Samsung’s latest flagship models, which hit shelves earlier this year, you can get the base S22 flagship with 128GB of storage and a 6.1-inch AMOLED display for $421 and the S22 Ultra with 256GB of storage and a 6.8-inch AMOLED display for $721.
There are many models available in this sale at a variety of prices. This sale is also a great chance to snag the now-discontinued Galaxy Note 20, which offers a large 6.7-inch AMOLED display, 128GB of storage and a powerful 64-megapixel camera that can capture 8K video footage, starting at just $260. Or splurge for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, with a 6.9-inch screen, starting at $371.
You can also shop all models of last year’s Galaxy S21 on sale right now. The base model S21 is on sale for as low as $236, which gives you a 6.2-inch display and 128GB of storage. The 256GB version is available for $270. Or you can upgrade to the S21 Plus, which features a 6.7-inch screen, either 128GB or 256GB of storage and is on sale starting at $290 right now. And for an even larger 6.8-inch screen, you can upgrade to the 128GB model of the S21 Ultra for $405. There’s also the S21 FE, which you can grab for $296.
One of our favorite budget phones for this year is the Galaxy A53. While that one isn’t part of this sale, you can get its predecessor, the Galaxy A52, for $190. The 2019 S10 Plus is also available starting at $196, which is a solid budget-friendly option for the average user.
If you’re looking to spend less and just need to replace your phone without insisting on the latest specs, check out the Galaxy A71. It’s available for $164 for the unlocked model. And for basic texting and calling, the absolute most affordable model you’ll find at this sale is the Galaxy S9, which you can grab for just $116 right now — or the Galaxy A12 for $2 more. However, when you grab an older device like the S9, you may not be eligible for software updates, so keep that in mind as you shop.
There are lots of other Samsung phones available, so be sure and shop the entire sale selection to find the right fit for you. Keep in mind that each phone has been rated “S&D,” or scratch and dent, which indicates that while all phones have undergone testing and are in full working condition, they do show moderate wear and tear and have some cosmetic blemishes. But if dings and scrapes don’t bother you, this is an excellent opportunity to upgrade your phone on a tight budget. Your purchase is also backed by a 90-day Woot limited warranty, just in case.
