Buy a refurbished phone

You'll find the price tag is a lot cheaper compared to new when you shop refurbished. One of the major advantages of buying a refurbished phone is you're more likely to get a newer model for less that's within your price range. 

There's a stigma around refurbished tech that it means faulty, but that is far from the truth. If an item has been refurbished it means it has rather been previously used and has no faults or has been used and then repaired.

Here at musicMagpie, we have a huge range of refurbished Samsung phones to choose from, including Samsung Galaxy S Series, Samsung Galaxy Note models and Samsung Galaxy Fold devices. 

Not only is going refurbished good for your pocket, but it's also a great way to keep products in use for longer and help reduce e-waste – it's smart for you, smart for the planet!

Choose a smaller storage size

The prices of phones are affected by a number of factors and storage size is one of them. If you choose the largest storage size for your next phone, such as 512GB or 1TB and don't plan on using that much, then you're best downsizing to cut the cost.

Samsung phones typically have about three or four storage sizes, so choose wisely when you upgrade. 

Sell your old phone

Samsung phones can be expensive, especially if you want one of the newer models, such as the Galaxy S22 Ultra or a Samsung foldable phone. If you're planning on chucking your old phone into a drawer once you've upgraded, sell it instead and put the extra cash towards your upgrade to make it cheaper. 

Here at musicMagpie, we'll give you a FREE valuation when your sell your phone with us and we'll lock in the best price for 21 days, so you have plenty of time to upgrade. Plus, you don't have to wait around to get paid either, thanks to our Fast Same Day Payments!

Buy a phone outright

If you can afford to, buying a Samsung phone outright and going SIM only is a cheaper way to upgrade rather than signing up for a contract that could be 2 or 3 years long.

The phone will be yours and you can choose which SIM deals suit you. Plus, you can swap and change networks by going SIM only instead of waiting until your phone contract is up.

Upgrade to a device that won't break the bank by shopping refurbished phone models at the musicMagpie Store and you could save £100s.
