Canada's Videotron to sell Samsung Galaxy S III for $99.95 with 3 year contract
It seems hard to imagine a Canadian carrier coming in lower than Videotron.. Just remember that there is no such thing as a free lunch and to get that price, you will be locked in for three years. That means in theory, by the time you are released from the contract, the world will be awaiting the Samsung Galaxy S VI. To put this price in perspective, before halting pre-sales of the Samsung Galaxy S III because of overwhelming response, Best Buy Canada was accepting pre-orders for the 16GB model from most Canadian carriers for $159.99 with a signed three year pact. In the U.S., the bottom-line price (after mail-in-rebate where applicable) for the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III is $199.99 with a 2-year contract.
The wait is over! Videotron announces the presale tomorrow, the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III which will soon be entering its 4G network performance. From just $ 99.95* for a limited time, Videotron customers will then get their hands on this new smartphone, intuitive and powerful, some analysts describe as best phone on the market.
Available on the popular platform Android TM 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy S III offers the experience of interaction and exchange of information that is most advanced. This pioneering device sets a new standard in terms of gestural communication that will allow Videotron customers to communicate and exchange of natural and spontaneous way. With innovative design and an enhanced intelligence, this device is designed to make life easier for its users through its user-friendliness.

Canada is the best!!! I wouldn't mind being stuck in a 3 year contract with a phone that is about sixty percent more powerful than my laptop especially for the o' so charming price of 100 runnies!!!!

3 year contract! What's up with Canadian carriers? Sounds like they are greedier than AT&T and Verizon !!!

2 year contract for me already feels like a century which is why I'm going prepaid with Tmobile's Monthly4g. You might think it's a steal NOW at $100 but in a year or two you probably will be agonizing for that new samsung galaxy s 4 or 5.

Well this isn't a bad phone to have for 3 years. Not everyone switch to the latest device every year when it comes out.

3 year contract is ridiculously long.
I would rather buy a phone with full retail price.
I want to have a 18 month contract instead of 24.
1 year is too short but 2 year is too long.
