Samsung, retailers continue to discount Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ prior to Galaxy Note 8 unveiling

Samsung plans on reverting to its usual methods of pricing before the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is launched, an event that reportedly will take place on September 15th. In order to help Samsung lighten its inventory of merchandise prior to the release of its high-end phablet, prices for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ will continue to decline through various sales and promotions.  
For example, Amazon and Best Buy will both sell you the unlocked Galaxy Note 8 for $574.99, a $150 or 21%  haircut off the original retail price. Best Buy will give you more color options than Amazon, so you might want to check out the big box retailer first. Best Buy also has some deals in place for carrier branded Galaxy S8 models. Sprint and Verizon subscribers can save $400 and $300 respectively, and AT&T has a BOGO going on. If the bigger Galaxy S8+ has more appeal to you, the same $150 off is available from all of the previously mentioned sellers. With the price break, the Galaxy S8+ can be yours for $674.99.

An even better deal for an unlocked Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ comes from Samsung. Not only will the manufacturer give you $150 off the price of either model, consumers can trade-in a working handset to receive an additional $150 off the price of either phone.

Keep in mind that any one of these deals and promotions can change in a heartbeat. Check in often for the latest deals pertaining to Samsung's 2017 flahship models.

They don't proof read their "blog posts". It's as if they don't have an editor to approve them before posting

I think the actual reason is that the Galaxy S8 does not sell very well. The reason ? Galaxy S7, which is actually more ergonomical (fingerprint sensor on the front) and the camera quality is very similar, better battery life at a much lower price. In Consumer Reports sales figures, Galaxy S7 is on 3rd place, while Galaxy S8 is on 4th place...

Agreed. No real reason to jump from S7 edge to S8 for me. Not too sure about these phone getting longer every generation either.

Even if they gave it for free to me, i would be glad to receive it and put in the trash. A s**tty low quality product with bloated and unsecure OS is really a mess. No wonder why samsung stores are almost empty as microsoft store.

Please note, Samsung phones are the only phones on which you can disable any software package (using Package Disabler) without rooting your phone (and making it insecure), a move that is fully reversible. With around 170-180 disabled packages (while not losing any functionality), I can get 48 hour battery life on my Galaxy A3 2017, and it is more fluid than stock Android. Similar story with my S7 Edge. And this is with Always-On Display enabled. Oh...and no other phone except LG flagships has Always-On Display, while Samsung has it even in its midrange phones.

In my small sample survey I would say they are selling well. Out of 20 +- a couple of people that I work with there are five S8's and two s8+'s. I have a Verizon S8 for work and a European S8 for my personal device. So far happy with both the Snapdragon and Exynos models. I can't beleive the amount of bloat Verizon loads up it has been a while since I had a carrier model.

Wait close to the S9 release you can get a good discount on this Note. These prices are getting a little crazy.
