Deal: Brand new Samsung Galaxy S9 costs just $485 on eBay
Even though it didn't sell well at all, Samsung Galaxy S9 is a decent flagship. Its only fault is that it looks too much like the Galaxy S8 and didn't bring too many improvements over its predecessor.

However, those who didn't purchase the Galaxy S8 might find the Galaxy S9 an appealing alternative, especially with all the promos and deals that U.S. carriers and retailers have been offering for a few months now.

Usually, the Galaxy S9 sells for around $700 outright, but if you don't mind buying the international model, you'll be paying less than $500. eBay seller never-msrp has the Samsung Galaxy S9 on sale for just $485, but you'll have to apply the code PRONTO15 at checkout.

Even better, the same promo code will allow you to purchase the Galaxy S9+ instead for just $590, a very good deal considering that the top-tier phone usually sells for almost $850. If you decide to go for the regular model, the phone comes with dual-SIM support but it can't be used on CDMA networks.

Do people really trust eBay fake imported used products?

That seller's big enough, I wouldn't worry about it being fake or used. I just won't buy an international Samsung again after my S7.

As always, Samsung Pay will likely not work out of the box on this. You can make it work, but you won't get access to the deals and rewards and actual US phones get.

1. Insert your sim card. 2. Factory reset your phone with your US sim card in it 3. Check Samsung Pay It's now set to your region with all the deals and rewards.

Just don't but premium phones on eBay period. It's too risky. Most of them are scammers.

I never buy anything from eBay. I don't care about the seller's rating. I'd rather go thru a legitimate dealer for expensive electronic devices.

That's a good deal. The phone fully supports US GSM LTE bands (sorry, sprint and verizon). I have the US S9, and It's been good so far. I prefer to use my first gen Pixel to take photos, but the S9 does take some amazing photos. I use Nova Launcher, so I don't see too much touchwiz.
