Samsung Galaxy Note 20: how to preorder

Samsung announced its new Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra phones at its Unpacked 2020 online event. The Verge’s Dieter Bohn has the full breakdown on everything you need to know about both devices in the link above, but make sure to check out the video by Becca Farsace. I’m just here to tell you where you can preorder them. Oh, and if you’re curious about when you can preorder the new Galaxy Z Fold 2, that’s coming on September 1st.

Both Note 20 phones will release on Friday, August 21st, but preorders are up now. Below, you’ll find all of the carrier stores and retailers that will be accepting preorders, along with their pricing. First, here’s what you’ll get in terms of free incentives along with your preorder.

You can get free stuff with a preorder

If you preorder either the Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra before August 20th, you’ll get some free goodies with your purchase. Buying the $1,000 Note 20 will earn you a $100 Samsung credit that can be redeemed on its site or through the Shop Samsung app, and it can go toward “curated bundles and select products like Samsung TVs, Galaxy Buds Live, tablets and more.”

The $1,300 Note 20 Ultra comes with a $150 credit. To redeem either credit, you’ll need to provide your proof of purchase through the Shop Samsung app. (Note: you’ll be eligible for this credit regardless of where you choose to buy a Note 20-series device.)

One of those curated bundles, in case you were curious, is an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Bundle that includes the PowerA MOGA XP5-X Plus Bluetooth gaming controller and a three-month subscription to Game Pass Ultimate. The fine print mentions that the Game Pass Ultimate subscription will work only if you’re a new subscriber, though, not a current one.

Lastly, if you placed a reservation for your Note 20 or Note 20 Ultra preorder ahead of the Unpacked event on August 5th, you’ll get an additional $50 credit that can be used on the products mentioned above.
