Deal: Get a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+ for as low as $3501
However, if you can't afford to pay so much for a high-end Android smartphone and you don't want to commit to a long term contract, one of the best alternatives would be to buy a refurbished unit.
The Galaxy S9 can go as low as $350, while the Galaxy S9+ often sells for less than $400 in refurbished condition. Both phones are now available at DailySteals for $350 and $380, respectively, and they come with warranty.
The problem is the deals include 30-day warranty, but you can buy a 1-year extended warranty for $75 just to be safe. Apparently, the phones come unlocked (GSM + CDMA), in grade A refurbished condition, but they are shipped in bulk packaging. Also, they're available in three different colors: Midgnight Black, Coral Blue, and Lilac Purple.
