The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 are finally the foldable we’ve been waiting for, but they ain’t cheap. The best way of saving on the phones is through Verizon, which will give you up to $1,000 for trading in your old phone when you switch to an unlimited plan, and a further $500 to cover your switching costs.

Despite launching at a lower price point than its predecessor, the Z Fold 3 is still an eye-watering $1,799.99 off the shelf. But trading in your current device can let you upgrade for as low as $799.99 ($1,000 off). The Z Flip 3 has a retail price of $999.99, so by trading, you can actually get it for free.

Unlike buying directly from Samsung, which only offers you the full trade-in credit for a Galaxy Z Fold 2, the phones that qualify for the $1,000 maximum from Verizon can be relatively old models. The likes of the OnePlus 8 and the Pixel 4 score you the full amount, as does the Galaxy S8 Plus

 The additional $500 credit indicates Verizon’s interest in getting your custom ASAP. They’ll cover the cost of payoff or early termination charges to your existing carrier as an incentive to make the move, in the form of a Virtual Prepaid Mastercard.
