US Cellular is the fourth-largest carrier in the States, and it excels at offering creative discounts. You can usually save a pretty nice chunk of change if you’re willing to make the switch. We’ve picked out a handful of the best US Cellular deals currently available.
Featured deal: Get any smartphone with unlimited data for as low as $30 per month
Have you been eyeing up the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G? Or maybe the Apple iPhone 13 Pro? US Cellular will help you get either of those phones or another one for free with this deal. It involves signing up to a plan, and while it’s only available in a few US states, it’s just too good for us not to highlight.
It looks like there’s quite a bit of fine print here, but in reality, the deal is pretty simple. You have to live in an eligible state and purchase the phone using installments for 30 months to take advantage of this deal. The discounted price is paid over 30 months, and you need to join on particular plans for some of the deals. Before you can make your purchase using the deal, you’ll have to input your location to verify that you are eligible.

Unlike some of the other deals on our list, you don’t have to trade-in, nor do you have to be a new customer. If you’ve been with US Cellular for a while now but have been considering an upgrade, now might be the time to pull the trigger on that purchase. If you do choose to combine the deal with a trade-in, then you can save even more.
If you’ve been thinking of getting into Android smartwatches, nows is a more affordable time than ever. US Celluar is offering $100 off the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic & $70 off the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. When you activate a Connected Watch Plan, you’ll get the first three months free and then $10 per month after that. The standard Galaxy Watch 4 is for the sportier crowd, while the Watch 4 Classic is for those who’d like a watch they can wear to the office or for a night out.
This is a limited-time offer, so hit the button below to get a discounted smartwatch to match your free smartphone from US Cellular.
2. Get $200 back when you bring a phone
If you want to make the switch but don’t necessarily want to buy a phone, there are still US Cellular deals that have you covered. They’re currently offering a great option to save when you switch and bring your own phone. The important part is saving money, and you can get $200 back in the form of bill credits when you sign up. All you have to do is make sure your device is eligible with the IMEI number and sign up for an unlimited plan.
US Cellular will then credit you $10 per month for 30 months, starting within three cycles. You will need to make sure that you enable autopay to stay fully eligible.
3. Save up to $500 when you trade-in
Trading in an old phone should become standard practice if you’re not doing it yet. You can save hundreds of dollars every year and consistently have the latest and greatest that companies like Samsung and Apple have to offer. While this isn’t the greatest trade-in deal we’ve seen, if you’re keen on staying with US Cellular, it’s one to keep an eye on when it comes time to upgrade to a new device.
4. Grab a free smartphone on US Cellular prepaid
There are still incentives to lure you to US Cellular for those of you eyeing the prepaid route. You can get a free phone simply by joining the network on the 8GB prepaid plan or higher. If you go for the LG K8x or the Moto e, you’ll get the phone free in the form of a one-time account credit.
5. Get the iPhone SE for $99
The iPhone SE normally retails for $399, so this is a substantial discount at $300 off one of last year’s top phones, featuring a fantastic build quality, great cameras, and one of the fastest processors of 2020. Hit the button below to snag this bargain.
