The new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ look absolutely fantastic, but the price tags that that they carry are bound to discourage some consumers. As you may know, pre-orders for the two flagships kicked off today in the US, and at launch, the duo will cost around $100 more compared to their predecessors - the S7 and S7 edge

Fortunately, a certain US retailer is prepared to alleviate some of the damage that a potential S8 purchase may do to your budget. If you're planning to get a carrier-locked version of the Galaxy S8 or S8+, it might be a good idea to head to Best Buy. 

The consumer electronics chain is offering customers up to $100 off the Galaxy S8+ and up to $50 off the Galaxy S8 if they pre-order on or in a local Best Buy store. The great news is that this discount will stack with Samsung's own pre-order incentive - a free Gear VR headset with a controller and bonus Oculus content. Select deals from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint can also be thrown in the mix, which means that you can get the new flagships for a reasonable price.

If you want to spend the saved cash on some useful gear for your phone, you might be interested in Samsung's lucrative deal for a pair of premium AKG headphones and a 256GB memory card.

I wonder if the preorder from bestbuy, do they also include the Gear VR headset? I know if you preorder from a Samsung store, they will include the new Gear VR headset with the new controller.

The VR gift is from Samsung. Has nothing to do with where you buy the phone. Once you buy, you use the receipt at Samsung's website to confirm your purchase. But there is ionfo you need off the box. So you cant take advantage of the free gift until you have the phone. Samsung promos are ALWAYS at this link -

So I just preordered via and when it got to the confirm payment page. They said Verizon has recently changed the price of this and the month to month cost went from the $27.91 down to $23.91. Hopefully it stays confirmed at that price!!!

Not truly $100 off. If you go to the Sprint version, it says the MSRP is 799, but if you look at the S8 on T-Mobile website they list the S8 with an MSRP of 750. Hmmm
