Available for a limited time from Videotron for less than $100

Quebec based carrier Videotron will start to accept pre-orders for the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III on Wednesday. The big news here is the price,which will be just $99.95 with a signed three-year contract. That sub $100 price is for a limited time only and once inventory allotted to the deal runs out, the price will revert back to its regular 36 month cost of $149.95. June 20th is the date when the handset is expected to be shipped by Canadian carriers to those who have reserved a unit of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

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.

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.

18 month contracts would be great.
