Samsung this week dropped the newest Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galazy Z Flip 6 smartphones at its Unpacked event in Paris. And with things kick off, you can already score big savings when you preorder from Amazon.

Starting today, if you preorder the Galaxy Z Fold 6 from Amazon, you'll get a $300 Amazon gift card. Similarly, if you preorder the Galaxy Flip 6 from Amazon, you'll receive a $200 Amazon gift card. I break down the fine print below.

When you preorder the Z Fold 6, you'll get a $300 Amazon gift card, plus double the storage on Samsung (a $120 value) when you simply select the large storage/gift card bundle variation for redemption. 

Also: I went hands-on with Samsung's $1,900 Galaxy Z Fold 6, and it still feels like a dream

ZDNET's Kerry Wan has already had a first look at the phone, and said he's impressed. "In the hand, the new Galaxy Z Fold 6 feels like the most polished version yet. I've daily driven -- or at least attempted to use often -- every Galaxy Z Fold model since the very first, and the sixth generation is easily Samsung's crème de la crème," he wrote in his review.

When you preorder the Z Flip 6, you'll get a $200 Amazon gift card plus double the storage on Samsung (a $120 value). All you need to do is select the large storage/gift card bundle variation when you purchase.

Wan said he's surprised with the Fold 6's little sibling's excellent features. "I've never felt more like an influencer than when I held and used the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 this week ... Samsung clearly has embraced its purpose of being a compact, creativity-inspiring device with a clamshell design that pays homage to the decades-old flip phones before it. It's not hard to appreciate all the technicalities Samsung crammed into a phone that, when folded, measures roughly three inches from corner to corner," he wrote in his review.
