Deal: Get a Samsung Galaxy S8 for just $520 from Boost Mobile

As we reported not long ago, Boost and Virgin Mobile - Sprint's two prepaid brands - are selling the Samsung Galaxy S8 for the lowest price available in the US (barring deals and promo offers): $649.99. Starting this week, though, Boost has an even better deal, allowing customers to buy a brand new Galaxy S8 for only $520 off contract - that's 20% off the regular price.

You can get the Galaxy S8 for just $520 if you're purchasing it from Boost Mobile's website (see the source link below) and enter the promo code BOOST17 at checkout. Important: this is an online only offer, and will end on June 15, or when supplies end.

Undoubtedly, this is one of the nicest new Galaxy flagship deals we've seen in the US recently. We do have to note that the S8 phone that Boost is selling is not unlocked, and you may have to use it for at least 1 year on Boost (where monthly plans start at $35) before being able to unlock it for free.

While trying to decide if you want to buy the Galaxy S8 from Boost Mobile, checking out our review of the handset may be a good idea.

But you have to use boost. You can get the S8+ from Sprint for $568 if you port + lease the phone.

How is it not? It's an instant discount & you can just buy the phone outright the next month.

usually to take full advantage of promotions the carrier requires you to stay with them for so long. otherwise they can charge you back for any discounts

Not sure. When we order them it says it's the U model but I'm not entirely sure if it's truly unlocked.

But but they said the Galaxy S8 was the best one and is selling well.

It is selling well, I don't understand why people refuse to accept that the discounted promotions are given by the carrier as an initiative to pull in customers. Carriers offer deals on most phones to bring in new subs all the time. It's not only Galaxy Devices, iPhones have had similar promotions but usually only the post-paid carriers offer deals on them because Apple doesn't like seeing their phones being sold too cheaply.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/T-Mobile-iPhone-7-256GB-iPhone-SE-deal_id94712 So does that^ deal mean that the iPhone 7 isn't selling well? Because by your logic, that's exactly what it means.

That is why you can't put Mxy and logic in the same sentence.

Even though its probably locked to boost, would there be a way to unlock this right off the bat?

Possibly

Yes, get an unlock code from ebay.

Short answer is Yes it will work. Long answer is NO, somehow when on ATT incoming call will regconize as international call and if you want to call back you need to manually dial that number back. Strange is Tmobile it working fine, however check the LTE for compatible.......... that is only biggest draw back I had tested with CDMA to GSM carrier

Add: only tested this with Samsung phone, dont about any other android phone. One exception to iPhone, if it is unlocked it work flawless with any carrier.

The iPhone is the onky phone thst runs iOS. The S remains thr dame costbusually, until the next S. You need to understand what a carrier deal is.
