Verizon to take Samsung Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders starting tomorrow, August 24th


The nation's largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, has announced this afternoon that it will start taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on Thursday, August 24th. For those who don't keep track of dates and such, that happens to be tomorrow. Big Red will be reserving the Galaxy Note 8 in two colors, Midnight Black and Orchid Grey. On Verizon device payment, the phablet will cost $40 a month over 24 months. The retail price of the phone is $960.

Are there promotions? You bet. With a paid off trade that is in good working and cosmetic condition, you can get as much as a 50% discount on the device. Those reserving the phone will receive a free 128GB microSD card, a Fast Charge Wireless Charging Convertible pad (valued at $189.98) or a Gear 360 camera (valued at $229.99) as long as supplies last. In addition, with a two-year activation, Galaxy Note 8 buyers can take $100 off the Samsung Gear S3 or the Samsung Galaxy S8/8+. You can also take advantage of a $50 discount to $99.99 for the car charger.

Verizon also notes that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is compatible with the new Gear VR with Controller. This will be inside Verizon stores and online starting on September 15th. The price of the VR headset will be $129.99.
