Best phone deals ahead of Prime Day: Save up to $200 on Samsung Galaxy S21, Google Pixel and more

Amazon Prime Day is coming up soon: The big sale will take place June 21 and 22. Plus, we’re going to get competing sales from Walmart and Target around the same time. It’s still early, but we’ve already found a few deals on phones with prices so low they’re matching earlier Prime Day or Black Friday prices on Amazon and other sites.

Note that prices and availability were accurate at the time of publication, but are subject to change. Make sure to check back often for the latest deal prices, as we’re updating this article on a rolling basis to account for newer, better deals and expired offers.

The Galaxy A12 is the least expensive phone Samsung sells, and it’s the one to consider if you simply want a phone for all of life’s essentials and don’t need to waste money on extravagant cameras or supercomputer levels of processing power. It doesn’t have 5G, but it does have four rear cameras, a 6.5-inch display and a large 5,000-mAh battery.

In 2019, CNET’s review called the Galaxy Note 10 Plus “the most premium Android phone for your money.” Two years later, the phone still holds up, with its large 6.8-inch screen, all-day battery life and excellent camera tools. At Amazon, you’ll find the phone for $389 as part of Amazon’s Renewed program — that means it’s used but works and looks like new. It’s also backed by the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee, so you can get your money back if you aren’t satisfied.
