New Cricket subscribers can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 for $350 (50% off) under certain conditions
A week from this Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ will both be unveiled. All of a sudden, those with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ will own a phone belonging to the previous generation. But this dynamic allows retailers and carriers to take an axe to the price of the 2017 flagships right now, as they try to quickly reduce their inventory of the older models to make room for the new units.

Take Cricket Wireless, for example. The AT&T-owned pre-paid carrier has a great deal on the Galaxy S8 that amounts to a 50% off discount. It's simple, really. Switch from your current carrier and bring your number with you. Sign up for a data plan that costs $30/month or more, and you can purchase the handset for only $349.99. Current Cricket subscribers adding a new number or burning an upgrade, will pay $699.99 for the phone. Cricket offers free next business day shipping for those ordering online.

The first month's service charge and sales tax is due at the time of purchase, and if you buy the Galaxy S8 inside a Cricket store, you will have to pay up to $25 for an activation fee. Still, this is a great deal on a phone that still will be able to easily handle anything you throw at it,even on February 25th when the next generation Galaxy S9 is introduced.
