The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is often called the king of Android phones. Why? Because it's packed to the brim with features, has the latest commercially available hardware, and a price tag that starts at $999. Ouch!

To Samsung's credit, however, there are a bunch of deals to pick from that make the Note 9 much much more forgiving on the wallet. These go from trade-ins that soften the blow by $200 to $400 all the way to BOGO offers, which are quite generous.

Now, cool as those may be, they usually involve you getting tied to a 24-month contract with a carrier. What if you just want to get an unlocked Note 9, free of strings and ties, free of carrier bloatware? Well, here's a Best Buy offer for you!

The store now accepts trade-ins for a new Galaxy Note 9. Upon returning an old Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 8, S8 Active, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, or LG V30+, you can get up to $450 in the form of a Best Buy coupon.

In other words, the $450 is not cold, hard cash, but a gift card you can use in Best Buy only. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on how often you shop there.
