The 17 best Samsung deals available for the new year

Calling all Samsung fans! Let this hub serve as your home ground for the latest and best deals on Samsung Galaxy smartphones, wearables, TVs, appliances, and more.

I always say you should be a fan of the product, not the brand. But when a brand makes electronics for virtually all facets of life, it's hard to run against the grain. Korean electronics maker, Samsung, has been churning out quality tech for decades, including smartphones, wearables, TVs, and appliances that live in households worldwide.

There are many deals still available even after the holiday festivities, most of which hit all-time lows in price. To save you the trouble, I've done the dirty work, scoured the circulars of every major retailer, and listed the very best promotions still available down below. 

Best Samsung deals

Below, you'll find my top picks for Samsung deals available.

  • Current Price: $750
  • Original Price: $1,000

Ever since Samsung made the push for "Ultra" smartphones, the Plus model has been left in the dust, but not entirely forgotten. That's because it mostly retains the big-phone features that come with the Ultra but in a more affordable, less polarizing form factor. I'd go as far as to say that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus is the sleeper pick for the best all-around smartphone this year. 

It has a generous 6.8-inch flat display that refreshes at 120Hz, a 50-megapixel main shooter that can capture videos as sharp as 8K, and is powered by Qualcomm's tried and tested Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Right now, Amazon has the phone discounted by $287, no strings attached.

  • Current price: $3,000
  • Original price: $3,500

The Samsung Odyssey Ark is a 55-inch monitor. That statement alone should be enough to divide a room in two. If you're in the camp that's questioning why this even exists, let me help.

The Odyssey Ark is a gamer's paradise, a curved, high refresh rate panel that engulfs any user who sits (or stands) in front of it. As a result, you get what is arguably the most immersive viewing experience on any monitor -- ever, and one that can even rotate 90 degrees. In doing so, the Odyssey Ark becomes a wave of four screens stacked on top of each other for the ultimate multitasking hub. It's not an impulse buy at $2,500, but that's nearly the cheapest price I've seen for the monitor. 

  • Current Price: $400
  • Original Price: $450

A $50 discount on Samsung's flagship smartwatch doesn't make it an impulse buy, but if you've been eyeing a durable, reliable, and feature-packed timepiece, then this is as good as it gets. The Watch 5 Pro supports a slew of health and fitness tracking features, alongside Google and Samsung's thoughtfully-curated WearOS platform. That means you can download from a laundry list of smartwatch-tailored, third-party apps while enjoying what is easily one of the better-looking wearables on the market. 

  • Current Price: $77
  • Original Price: $149

These may have come out in 2020, but if you're looking for some comfortable, ambient noise throughout your day, these are the buds for you. I use these daily to listen to my music and podcast while I'm working. The kidney bean shape fits comfortably and ergonomically into my ears, and I especially enjoy they can last up to six hours with ANC on -- and more with the charging case. Just 15 minutes gives you enough juice to get through that hour-long commute home.

  • Current price: $4,800
  • Original price: $5,800

For something that's a little more splurge-worthy, check out Samsung's massive 85-inch Neo QLED 8K TV. The smaller 65-inch and 75-inch variants are on discount, too, but it's the largest option -- with its $1,000 off sale -- that's most worth it, in my opinion. 

For the price, you're getting one of the most color-rich and detailed TVs on the market, with Samsung's Quantum Mini LEDs powering each individual pixel for the brightest whites and darkest blacks. You may also be wondering why you need an 8K TV when 99% of the YouTube and Netflix content you watch is in 1080p. Well, Samsung's embedded a Neural Quantum Processor 8K that upscales high-definition videos and movies so that they appear as crisp and life-like as actual 8K resolution.

  • Current Price: $1,045
  • Original Price: $1,300

In the running for best smartphone of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, with its gorgeous 6.8-inch OLED display, up to 8K video recording, S Pen support, and a generous 5,000mAh battery, has proven to be the Korean giant's most complete handset yet. This Cyber Monday, Amazon and Best Buy have the 256GB variant discounted by $316 and $300 respectively, putting the Galaxy right beside the latest iPhone 14 Pro with four times the storage capacity.

More deals and promotions straight from Samsung's website: 

Should I go through a carrier to score a Samsung phone deal?

That depends on your carrier and your phone preferences. If you're in the Verizon or AT&T family, we round up the best available deals for you. However, if you want an unlocked phone, those can be a little trickier to find -- and we've rounded up some of those deals above.

Is Samsung offering any new years deals?

Yes -- and we've rounded up some of the best ones up above. However, if you're not in a rush for any 2023 deals, Samsung will offer promotions and deals throughout the year. My personal favorite is their Discover Samsung weeks, which are held sporadically throughout the year and can score you some of the lowest prices as well as the greatest deals on Samsung products. Unfortunately, no word on when the next one is, so the best deals are currently listed here.

How did we choose these Samsung deals?

Samsung's product portfolio spans further than most companies, so scouting the best deals meant sifting through various categories, including smartphones, wearables, TVs, and appliances. We try to find the latest deals on products that, based on personal research and testing experiences, are worth the money. That way, you'll have the comfort of buying good products at better prices.
