Deal: Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with $150 gift cards at Sam's Club


If you intend to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, but haven't placed a pre-order yet, we have a tip that may interest you: Sam's Club is giving $150 gift cards to folks who pre-order any of the two new smartphones and activate them on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint (sorry, T-Mobile users, this deal is not for you).

To redeem the gift card, you'll have to pick up and activate your brand new Galaxy at Sam's Club between April 21 and April 30. Buyers are also entitled to get the free Gear VR with Controller that everyone else in the US is offering with the S8 and S8+. Moreover, between April 21 and April 23, Sam's Club is waiving activation and upgrade fees. All in all, you can get up to $359 worth of freebies, which is pretty cool.

As you may know, to make purchases at Sam's Club, you have to be a member of the club. Membership costs $45 per year and gives you access to many other deals all year long. You can check out Sam's Club's Galaxy S8 promo offer at the source link below.

P.S.: In case anyone's wondering, despite the name similarities, Samsung and Sam's Club are not affiliated in any way (Sam's Club is a division of Walmart).

Mine is pre ordered, ships on the 18 th-19th according to AT&T. Orchard gray on the way, and a matte black soft touch, slim fit case on the way from Amazon. Sucks that AT&T isn't offering the coral blue, I'd have gotten that.

Sams club here I come what's up bro.I'm digging the S8+ just hope battery is worthy is my only concern and can't wait on Iphone 8 in September.Wife is pissed at Samsung right now and want an Iphone because the charger caught fire and almost burned bed up while phone was charging so might give her my Iphone 7+ and get the S8+

@bigsimpd. If Samsung took the Note 7 issue seriously, they should have the safest batteries in the market. I tried it for an hr, went all through it, and I was very impressed. With the iPhone 8, it's not about looks, but rather what it will do. I have to have split screen, slide over, pic in pic, and pencil support, or I'll just keep my 7 Plus and update it. Sorry to here about her charger bro, glad y'all cool fam.

Lol, hook it up. That's cool Samsung looking out. You'll like the S8 Plus. Apple better bring it in September, Samsung isn't playing around.

Still whining about the battery. It's big enough. As long as a phone last a day then it's big enough. Most phones do that.

Joey, it's a must have for me bro, it's even got S-Pen features without the need for an S-Pen. Samsung out did themselves on this one. You gotta try it. I didn't plan on a pre order, until I played with it, and it was lights out.

Yeah AT&T has both demo units in. I was on them for over an hour. And made several small videos.

Bro got a chance to play with the phone it's definitely has my interest.I like the size very compact to be that big,screen is gorgeous,camera looks really good crisp pics,but I am going to wait to see reviews on it.Like the gray but if I do get the Silver for me.My concerns are as always updates for the phone with software,battery life,and lag which it shouldn't be any but I thought that about the Note 7 and it was terrible lagged a lot to be a new phone.It's amazing how much Samsung phones does more than Iphones better specs and all but the Iphone is much more efficient and smoother and battery life on the 7plus is unbelievable.

I dig you on everything, but I think the 835 is octa core, and that should help with the lag. My Note 7 used to get unexpected slowdowns as well, so hopefully it's cool. I've seen some vids, where the RAM management is much more improved, so we'll see. As usual, I'm an early adopter, and I'll keep track of that 14 day return period lol. Samsung should copy Apples in the RAM management department lol.

Same here 14 days closely watched lol.Apple apps are the most ram friendly you're going to have.They just agreed on a 9billion$ deal lol but keep each other in court just imagine if they came together bro we would have one beast of a phone.Let's be honest this S8 is what Samsung knew Apple is about to release with the Anniversary addition so they got as close to the Iphone as they could.

I'm super curious about the next iPhone, but it's more about what it will do vs how it will look. I don't think I'll buy another phone that doesn't have multi window, so I'm hoping for mult window, picture in picture, slide over and pencil support. I get those four, plus the rest of iOS 11, and I'm all in. Samsung slays Apple with features, Apple slay Samsung, with smoothness. Won't be long now.

Won't be long at all.Apple is going all out in the Iphone 8 and I was searching for cases for the S8+ and was amazed not many choices to choose from and release is only couple of weeks away what's the deal with that? Spigen,caseology,verus which are my favorite not many selections

I found a really nice black one by elago, and a clear one by luvv it. Speigen has some nice ones too. I just want one black one and one clear one, with the cutouts on the back and I'm good. I have 6 cases for my iPhone, and only use one. SMDH. Did you look on Amazon?

Yes but found better deals on EBay just ordered 2 Obliq meta metallic cases they are very nice and one VRS case they have nice cases 3 so far lol I have 12 cases for my IPhone 7 plus I love wood cases as well check out eBay they are cheaper than Amazon and more selection right now. If you on Kik hit me up I'm Bigsimpd on there

If you can't convince yourself. Then you don't need it. Why do u need to be convinced of a purchase? The device stands on its own merit. It's a Note 7 without the pen and a better and bigger display in a phone about the same size as the Note 7. The Note 7 was 5.7" and outlast t S7 and she even with a smaller battery. The S8+ still has less features vs the Notebook 7 since it doesn't have to also power the WACOM digitizer. Buy a battery pack if you're so worried. All this battery talk is all BS.

I'm thinking gray shouldn't show as many fingerprints I love they're design but honestly the all glass back has gotten old to me a beautiful phone but have to hide it because of all the finger smudges you get from the all glass back

The Gray is really nice, I'm gonna have it cased up, whenever I'm outside, naked in the crib.
