One Galaxy Note 9 variant is on sale at an insane $650 discount with installment plans
If you feel the $950 starting price of the Galaxy Note 10 is hard to justify, as the "regular" variant of Samsung's latest S Pen-wielding beast cuts a few too many corners compared to its big brother, we'd sure love to hear your thoughts on the $1,000 and up the Note 9 continues to fetch through its manufacturer's official US e-store.

Obviously, it's not too difficult to find an authorized third-party retailer, major carrier, or top-rated eBay seller willing to offer a hefty discount on the classic 6.4-incher with razor-thin bezels, a headphone jack, and a microSD card slot nowadays, but $650 savings are not exactly easy to come by even more than a year after such an incredibly powerful handset is originally released.

If you're looking to activate the Galaxy Note 9 on an AT&T Next or Next Every Year installment plan right now, though, that's precisely how much you can shave off the list price of a 512GB storage configuration over at Best Buy. Instead of coughing up an exorbitant grand total of $1,249.99, you'll be paying 600 bucks overall, either in 30 monthly installments of $20 or $24.99 every 30 days for two years.

There are no trade-ins required or any other strings attached, although it is important to note (pun very much intended) that the $650 savings will include a $400 Best Buy instant discount, as well as bill credits of $8.33 or $10.42 a month for 30 and 24 months respectively. You'll also need to add a new line of service to an existing AT&T account or open an altogether new one, and choose from Midnight Black, Ocean Blue, and Cloud Silver color options of the Snapdragon 845-powered Galaxy Note 9 with 512 gigs of local digital hoarding room and 8GB RAM. 

The 128/6GB variant is also on sale at a decent-sounding discount, but at 50 bucks lower than the upper-tier configuration, it doesn't seem like such a bang for buck champion considering those two downgrades.
