Save $100 on the Samsung Galaxy S III or Samsung Galaxy S II from Sprint through April 11th
From now through April 11th, Sprint will take $100 off the price of the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung Galaxy S II. And in return for such largesse, all the carrier asks is that you put your John Hancock on a signed two-year pact. The price reduction brings the Samsung Galaxy S III down to $99.99. The Samsung Galaxy S II is actually free with this offer. And don't let its age concern you, as Sammy has just started updating the phone to Android 4.1.2. The deal is available on online orders for new lines only. If you're upgrading a phone on a current Sprint account, the $100 savings does not apply to you.

Why cut the price on the pair now? With the Samsung Galaxy S4 expected to touch down in the states late next month, the nation's third largest carrier wants to clear the shelves to make room for the new flagship model. Early indications are that the carriers, instead of cutting the price of the Galaxy S III to make way for the new model, will price the Samsung Galaxy S4 about $50 above what they are asking for the current flagship handset. AT&T has announced that it will charge $249.99 for the phone which brings the cost of the device above the $199.99 that AT&T asks for the BlackBerry Z10 and the Apple iPhone 5.
