Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch is today, and Verizon has a BOGO deal

Today, March 16, marks the glorious beginning of a new chapter in Samsung's flagship Galaxy S-line. Alternatively, we could just say that the Galaxy S9 and S9+, the newest high-end phones from the world's largest Android maker, will be available for purchase in Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Best Buy and other stores, the minute you walk into the door.

Those of you who already preordered since the March 2nd opening, should already have an S9 or S9+ taken from their front porch, but those who were holding off can now do it live and in person anywhere closest to them.

We already rounded up the best deals you can hope for, but Verizon one-upped the crowd today, and immediately announced a BOGO deal for both the Galaxy S9 and S9+, no trade-in required. The S9 goes for $799.99, and the S9+ for $929.99, so that's quite a lot of change saved up. So, how much will the S9 and S9+ set you back? Here's the scoop.

Verizon & AT&T gouging on the price as usual, but I'm surprised to see Sprint doing the same thing. You'd think when you're that far behind, you'd use some prudence in pricing, but perhaps that's part of why they're there in the first place.

Yeah I agree but you have to remember a lot of sprint customers are illiterate and lease phones thinking they're saving money vs Verizon or att installment agreements

This will be Samsung's year. They're one of the only phones with out a notch. If you want a phone with basicly a notch, then just get the cheapest one cause no one will be able to tell which phone you have. Unless you want the LG G7 (transformer phone) then you'll be able to look like a notch phone one day and a V30 the next day. I wonder how the Pixel will look.

Hopefully the notch trend dies with 2018 for Android. Apple seems like they're going all in with that crap

Found Sprint also has a BOGO offer at Costco on the S9/+ with 24 month installments. Sprint LOGO (Lease One, Get One) offer on the S9/+ available in BestBuy, Target Mobile and (of course) COR stores and online. Galaxy Forever included (upgrade anytime after 12 months, or purchase option after 18 months). No trade-in required. Contract/ device buy-outs also available: up to $650/ line. Sprint has worked great in my area -and I usually find the best offers in best buy, so upgraded my old (paid for) phone, and was already time to add-a-line for a family member. Got two S9+ received two $100 Best Buy gift cards ard and the LOGO deal!! I'll just pay the $5 difference since LOGO only covers the S9 price. $0 out the door (not even taxes!) + $200 in best buy $ in my pocket. I'll most likely milk that LOGO until it ends in 18 months, and return them both for the next best thing.

Not going to lie, I bought one of these today and after about 6hrs of use I have to say I don't like it. It's no different than my S8 and with all that power under the hood it still lags. And the major plot twist was the battery life. Unacceptable so I took it back and popped my Sim back in my iPhone X. Probably be the last Samsung I ever buy again in my life.

You forgot the Costco deal. Supposed to be the cheapest
