Sprint's half-price Note 8 offer is the best deal yet


The Galaxy Note 8 preorders have been up for almost a week already, but Sprint is sweetening its honey trap for customers switching to its cell phone lease plans, giving them the $960 Note 8 at less than half price, and doesn't even want anything to be paid upfront. Thus, if you bring your number to Sprint, or add a new line of service with the carrier, a Sprint Flex lease plan for Samsung's most advanced smartphone will cost you just $20/month for 18 months. Upon expiration, you can continue the lease, return the device, or purchase it outright.

The best part is that you can still collect Samsung's active bonuses of a Gear 360 or the so-called Foundation Kit which includes a Samsung 128GB EVO+ memory card and Fast Wireless Charging Convertible until September 24, or while supplies last. The offer is available with Sprint's current promo plan that includes unlimited data, talk and text, HD video and 10 GB of mobile hotspot for $22.50 a month per line for a typical family plan of four. 

To enhance the Note 8 deal even further, Sprint has it qualified for its Galaxy Forever undertaking that allows upgrades to a new Galaxy flagship after 12 Sprint Flex payments, so when you get enough of the Note 8 next fall, you might switch to the S9, or the next Note without much hassle.

So, in other words, you proudly turned a blind eye to the following other things you get for that $255: - Bigger display area - 20% brighter and better color accuracy display ( http://sck.pm/OOQ ) - 50% more RAM - Free goodies: a gear 360 or a 128 GB MicroSD card + Fast wireless charging pad - etc. Not to talk of the many software enhancements that come preloaded.

Yeah bigger than 0.1 inch vs S8+, better ppi, better screen to body ratio. Both S8+ and Note 8 have 6GB of RAM S8+ got VR and 369 cam aa free on launch

So... don't get a Note series... what are you trying to tell people who wants this phone? That you do not like it, and you feel its over priced, and your opinion above all else? Or is $300 a bit too much for you? I don't think you can convince anyone that has $300 more than you at their disposal who also really wants a note series phone to not spend that $300.

Yeah I don't get it either. They have no intention of buying the phone but bitch about the price of the note 8. It's our money not his.

It's about buying an overpriced tech with little improvements. They're covering the loses from Note 7 which they admit to be faulty and fans have to pay for it. Reconditioned Note 7 FE didn't catch up to what it used to be.

Turns a blind eye to what comes in the package for the price compared to the competition > keeps bitching about it being overpriced...just retarded to say the least.

Bro, I can't wait to get mine, I also can more than easily afford it. What's funny, is how trolls compare the Notes launch price, to the S8 Plus current price. The difference is actually $100, if compared properly...launch price vs launch price. They're (the flock) so desperate to spoil it for us..not gonna happen.

Agreed. Can't wait to get mine too, more and more positive reviews are appearing across the internet. Now just waiting on B&H Photo to list the Exynos variant, then will happily pull the trigger on it. Mindless haters gotta hate. Even if you compare it to the current pricing of the unlocked S8+, everything you get in the package, including the free goodies, make it easy to justify that price difference. But alas, some just prefer to close their eyes and keep crying about the price. As the saying goes, can't cure stupid.

It's just a blown up S8 with an S-Pen. Any of the Galaxy flock who says otherwise are blinded by Samsung.

First off this article is about getting the note 8 for half price which would make it cheaper then the S8+. Second on T-mobile (which is my case) the S8+ is $800 and the note 8 is $930. So for $130 you get 50% more ram, duel camera setup, Bigger more accurate screen, less curve on the screen, All the free extras (don't get those if you buy a S8+ now), S-pen and software enhancements. All that is easily worth the extra $130 to me. Also on Jump On Demand so I can trade in the phone after a month if I'm not happy with it so I wouldn't buy the phone from another seller.

I'm on Verizon, full retail it's about $100 more, with trade in promotions the Note 8 is actually cheaper right now than the S8+

Yea but it's Sprint. This would've been cool if it was 2002.

Verizon is also offering up to 50% the Note 8. Combine that with BestBuy's $150 discount for pre-ordering and the device is only about $330.
