Best Buy sells Verizon's Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note 8 at $350 discount
As always, there are a couple of things to consider before pulling the trigger, and one or two very important conditions to meet. You’ll need to activate a new Verizon service line on a monthly payment plan to maximize your discounts, although doing the same with AT&T or Sprint will also save you a cool $200.
Typically sold for $39 a month, amounting to a pretty ridiculous $936, the Verizon-locked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 currently fetches $24.41 a month for two years for new Big Red subscribers, which equates to a significantly more reasonable $586. That’s still not as affordable as the occasional unlocked eBay bargain, but certain risks and compromises, like a missing warranty or patchy high-speed connectivity, are eliminated from the equation.
The same obviously goes for the Galaxy S9 and S9+, which can be yours from Best Buy under the aforementioned conditions in exchange for $18.41 and $23.41 a month respectively. Multiply that by 24, and you get a palatable $442 and $562 instead of “normal” rates of $792 and $912 respectively. That’s a $350 markdown across the board, compared to only $200 off the three phones’ prices with AT&T or Sprint monthly installments.
