Deal: Buy an unlocked Galaxy Note 8 or S8 and get a free Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit ($200 value)
Want to hear about yet another deal involving Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, S8, and S8+? If you do, we're glad to inform you that the unlocked versions of the three smartphones are now offered by Best Buy alongside a free SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit. 

Normally costing around $200 (more or less, depending on where you're getting it from), the Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit enables you to automate, control, and monitor your home via a dedicated SmartThings app. The kit is compatible with a wide range of smart appliances, lights, speakers, locks, cameras, thermostats, and so on. It includes a Samsung SmartThings Hub, two Samsung SmartThings Multipurpose Sensors, one Samsung SmartThings Outlet, and one SmartThings Motion Sensor.  

While you are receiving the SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit for free, the Samsung Galaxy phones themselves aren't getting any price cuts. This means you'll have to pay $949.99 for a Galaxy Note 8, $824.99 for an S8+, and $724.99 for an S8. But at least these are the official US variants of the handsets (warranty included), not international models that may be available on eBay at lower prices (without warranty).  

Best Buy doesn't say when its new promotion ends, but we assume it won't be valid for too long. If you think this is a good deal - even with Samsung's Galaxy S9 arriving soon - you can find more details at Best Buy via the source link below.

I rather take a deal on the s8 and buy the home kit separate.. the S8 aand Note are regularly on sale as is the kit.... But for a quick purchase it is not a big deal

Sorry for getting off-topic, I think Galaxy A3 2018 is for real.

This is the worst time to buy 2017 Samsung flagships. Wait 12 days and all of them will have some sexy discounts.

The stuff Samsung does to sell their phones. I returned my old S8 i bought an iphone X and i couldn’t be happier. All i can say that there were a lot of people returning samsung flagships because of an one particular camera bug.

Anytime you have to pay over $800. for a smartphone by Samsung, it's not a good deal and I don't care what you get for free....
