On the hunt for that shiny new flagship? We've rounded up all of this week's best Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra deals into one handy resource right here to help our readers save as much cash as possible. We've got deals for both the US and UK here, as well as options that cover all types of carriers. Regardless of whether you're looking for big carrier value, a prepaid option, or just an unlocked device, our Galaxy S23 Ultra deals roundup looks to cover all the bases.
The new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra debuts at a hefty asking price of $1,199 / £1,249 upfront, which - no surprises - makes it one of the most expensive phones on the market and easily the priciest of the three new Galaxy S23 devices. There are, however, a few key internal upgrades to help justify that price tag.
Firstly, while the device is outwardly incredibly similar to the previous Galaxy S22 Ultra, inside, you're getting a super speedy new Snapdragon Gen 8 2 chip, LPDDR5X RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage - all of which should provide a significant performance boost. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is also the first device from Samsung to carry a huge 200MP main camera, which also utilizes a number of computational improvements and the ability to shoot 50MP RAW files - very handy if you like editing your photos.
Is it worth the price? Well, there are a number of great Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra deals that you can use to get this gorgeous device for cheap (relatively speaking). First up, if you have an old device ready to hand over as part of a trade, then you can get a nice discount in both territories today.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra deals in the US
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: up to $880 off with a trade-in at Samsung
Samsung's own trade-in program is a fantastic option if you're looking for an unlocked device since you can get up to $800 off your device with no need for an associated plan. There are also exclusive colors and options for bundle deals available at Samsung, which can be good if you want to bundle in some cheap accessories alongside your new phone. See our Samsung promo codes page for other ways to save at the official retailer.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in, and free Pixel Watch 2 at Verizon
Verizon's current lineup of Galaxy S23 Ultra deals offers an extremely competitive trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 off - a match for the best we've seen yet. Note that the full $1,000 off is reserved for those picking up a device on a new unlimited data line but upgraders can still get $800 off, which is pretty damn good in its own right. Verizon often also throws in free devices like Galaxy Watches and tablets. Right now we can't see any freebies but it's worth double checking just in case.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: was
$1,199 now $999.99 at Amazon
Amazon's current price on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is just $50 off the record-low price from the retailer. If you're looking to buy an unlocked device upfront, then this is easily the best option right now and a decent overall buy, even if we aren't quite at record-low prices right now.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Best Buy
AT&T's current trade-in rebate of up to $1,000 is a match for the best we've seen yet from the carrier so it's well worth checking out if you're interested. You'll still need an unlimited data plan to be eligible here but it's easily one of the better deals available at AT&T right now.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: $200 activation rebate, or up to $1,000 off with a trade-in at Best Buy
Best Buy essentially offers customers the choice between the usual carrier trade-in rebates (the same as those you'd find at the carriers themselves), or an activation rebate with an unlocked device. Of the two, the activation rebate is the selling point for getting a device via Best Buy. It can be super handy if you already have a carrier in mind (like AT&T or Verizon), but aren't eligible for one of the big carrier trade-in promotions.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: $700 rebate after 24 months at Google Fi
It's sometimes hard to find a good deal on a prepaid device but Google Fi has a great saving right now on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. If you're willing to wait, the carrier will rebate you a full $700 after 24 monthly bill credits, which could be a good option if you're willing to go prepaid in the long term. Otherwise, we'd probably recommend opting for a trade-in at either Samsung or one of the bigger carriers.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra deals in the UK
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: up to £500 off with a trade-in at Samsung
Samsung itself is nearly always the best choice for unlocked Galaxy S23 Ultra deals in the UK if you're happy to trade in. It operates a good program all year round and right now it's offering a fantastic rebate of up to £500 across all devices, which can be handy if you're looking to break free from the usual tariff options. You'll also find online-exclusive colour options at the official store that you won't find anywhere else.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: at Affordable Mobiles | O2|
£160 free upfront | unlimited data | unlimited calls and texts | £55 per month
This O2 tariff from Affordable Mobiles is one of the best we've seen yet on this network specifically, especially if you're looking for unlimited data. This particular tariff has been knocking around since launch but Affordable Mobiles has been steadily reducing the upfront cost from £160 to nothing. Considering the saving here, and the relatively reasonable monthly price (considering it's on a major network), we'd say this is great value.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: at Affordable Mobiles| Three |
£5 free upfront| unlimited data | unlimited calls and texts | £53 per month
Another tariff that we've featured previously that keeps getting better and better is this unlimited data Three deal at Affordable Mobiles. Not only has the small upfront charge been waived for this tariff but its monthly cost has recently been discounted from £55 per month to £53, which adds up over the duration of two years. As far as unlimited data contracts go, this is a very reasonable option considering the price of the device.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra: at Mobiles.co.uk| Vodafone| £300 upfront | 100GB data | unlimited calls and texts | £34 per month
If you're looking to spend as little per month as possible, a good option is this Vodafone tariff at Mobiles.co.uk. At just £34 per month, it's incredibly reasonably priced considering the overall cost of the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The downside, of course, is that you'll need to pay a fair bit upfront - £300 in this case.
