Samsung US has just added the Galaxy S22 series to its Certified Re-Newed program. It allows consumers to buy the ex-flagship Android smartphones as "expertly" refurbished units through the OEM's official website for reduced prices. Then again, similarly sustainable deals are available elsewhere, with even better discounts in some cases.

Samsung US has announced that the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra are now available in Certified Re-Newed form, just in time for Earth Day 2023. The program offers "like new" refurbished units that have undergone a "100-point inspection" on the company's part at prices reduced compared to those at their release.

In the case of the S23 series' predecessors, a 12GB RAM/256GB internal storage Galaxy S22 Ultra for one still goes for US$1,299.99 new from - however, that price drops to US$1,019 (or by 21.5%) through the Certified Re-Newed program. Similarly, the S22 and S22+ are discounted by ~27% through the initiative.

Then again, there may be other options out there for those happy with a slightly older flagship in an officially refurbished state. For example, an 8/128GB S22 Ultra in black is available Renewed as part of the Amazon Climate Pledge today for just US$682.49 (or 28% less compared to a new unit) today (April 22, 2023).

On that note, consumers interested in Certified Re-Newed-style programs should be advised that they may encounter stock extremely limited in terms of the color or configuration options they might prefer at times.
