Deal: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 comes with a free Gear S3 watch and free wireless charger

Samsung has a brand new deal for customers interested in buying its Galaxy Note 9 smartphone in the US. If you're willing to purchase the 512 GB variant of the handset (which costs $1.249,99), or any Note 9 or Galaxy S9 model on Verizon Device Payment, you're getting a free Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch (or a Gear Fit 2 Pro smartband) and a free wireless charging stand - two gifts worth over $300.
Buying a non-Verizon Galaxy Note 9 128 GB (priced at $999.99) or a non-Verizon Galaxy S9 / S9+ will only get you a free Gear Fit 2 Pro, but this is still a pretty nice gift. Alternatively in this case, if you don't want the free Gear Fit, you can pay $99 to receive a Gear S3 and a wireless charging stand.
Samsung says that this new deal will be available until October 2, or while supplies last. Since various freebies have been offered with the Galaxy Note 9 from its launch day (including the pre-order period), we're assuming that, after October 2, other gifts will replace the current ones. In any case, if you're interested in the offer that's available right now, you can find it at Samsung's official website via the source link below.
- Display 6.4" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Octa-core, 2800 MHz
- Storage 512 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 4000 mAh(29h 3G talk time)

Nobody is buying flagships this year. Nothing has changed and I feel consumers are realizing paying over $1000 for something that has a feature that can be embeeded via software is ridiculous. The last company to earn my money is Google. Let's see what they have.

I’d go for that deal. I opted for the 512 blue, but I honestly think Samsung and Apple are about to learn a painful lesson, with these highly expensive ass phones. Some people are gonna choose not to fork the money over, and some simply can’t afford to. People are gonna hang on to their current phones longer. I’ve already decided to skip the XS Max, and if the Note 10 doesn’t kill, I’ll wait on the 11. I’m very happy with my 9 and X...these prices are getting ridiculous.

I agree darkk After waiting for more note 9 available in the blue it gave me time to think. I decided to keep my note 8 and wait for the note 10, pissed off my note 8 buyer because he knew how good of care I have taken of it. The bad thing is I know it will be even higher then the note 9 so Samsung better bring something special with the note 10.

I was personally not gonna get the Note 9. I only did because of VZWs BOGO deal. I get rid of them in 12 months anyways, so I can still get the ten. But Apple has nearly 3 phones costing $1000. Fast charger in the box yet? Premium headphones in the box yet? Nope!

I agree that these phone prices are getting to be too much, especially if a person wants to upgrade each year. The carrier payment plans are nice but your still paying a lot of $ for minimal changes from pretty well every OEM. I’m an Apple user and I’m intrigued by the Xs Max but I do love my Touch ID, and my 7 Plus functions perfect still and does everything ‘I’ need it to. I may replace my Apple Watch series 3 with the new one. As a medic I’m very intrigued by the new ECG capability. I’d like for them to add SpO2 as well, it’s already capable of it, even the previous versions could. I just hope they don’t restrict the new nike watch faces to the new series, since I have a nike version. I’ll continue to stick with Apple products as they are what I like best, to each their own. Other OEMS offer very well made products also, I just prefer Apple. But like you said darkk, the prices are getting too high, there is only so much they can change and add each year and no OEM’s offerings are worth such prices.

Right bro. I’m at the point of keeping a phone at least 2 years now, if nothing big comes up next year. I paid $1353 for my Note after tax (on AT&T Next), and to be honest, I’m planning to skip the 10, and buy an 11. As far as my X goes, I’m keeping it, till Apple gives true split screen multitasking, picture in picture, and Pencil support. I love both of my devices, and see no need to upgrade next year, for only a minor incremental upgrade. I’m done with high price minor upgrades now, and will be putting my money into other things. It’s not even about being able to afford it, cause I can, it’s paying huge prices for small upgrades...I’m done as of this year.

I'm not going for any until they get the black over here. What's the point of announcing all these colors, then only selling two? It's stupid. I don't want a fricking yellow pen that writes yellow. Caveat: if they make a good enough offer, I could go for it. But unlocked only. Not getting a Verizon phone with all their crap on it.

Do agree that an iPhone reaching $1450 before tax is ridiculous. That’s $1500-$1600 for a phone after tax - insane! Now the fact that they don’t include basic things like a fast charger and make you spend more money and buy one is even more ridicolous. If people continue to buy apple products despite their much higher prices, the prices will continue to go up. The fact is that people are waiting in line for them even at their high prices.

Shoot, you think 1200-1500 bucks is crazy. I think anything over $500 is crazy for a smartphone. It's more about style, color, gimmicks and fads, than it is about how good they are. Hell, I use my smarphone more for a PHONE than pretty much anything to the tune of 1500-2000 minutes per month, but, you never hear them say how well they work as a phone. Now the latest gimmick is seeing who can be the first to put 1,304 cameras on the back LOL.
