Multiple top-rated eBay sellers are offering big Galaxy Note 9 discounts (new and refurbished)
That changes today with not one and not two, but three special offers spotted at top-rated eBay sellers. First, there's Sobeonline1, a self-proclaimed "pioneering e-commerce company" with 98.6 percent positive ratings in the last 12 months, which charges $629.99 for "brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged" items in their "original packaging", available in your choice of three paint jobs - black, blue, or alpine white.
Meanwhile, an open box Galaxy Note 9 in a "grade A" condition, with "minor cosmetic imperfections such as scratch from handling", is up for grabs from Qualitycellz at only $599.99 in an Ocean Blue color. That's a 99.9 percent positively rated eBay merchant, mind you, which vouches for the near-flawless cosmetic state of this heavily discounted device, as well as its impeccable functionality.
Last but not least, Bidallies is selling what it describes as "B+ stock items" in refurbished condition for $529.95 a pop with Sprint support only. This is different from the other two deals, which involve GSM unlocked units you can use on AT&T or T-Mobile, but not Verizon or Sprint. On the bright side, since this is a US-specific model, it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor instead of the "international" Exynos 9810 chipset.
Keep in mind that none of these three sellers can hook you up with a valid US warranty, but for what it's worth, you do get free nationwide shipping and free 30-day returns across the board. Meanwhile, if you're wondering what kind of savings you're looking at here, let's just say they're big. Samsung, for instance, typically charges $999.99 on its website for the unlocked 128GB Note 9, currently offering a $200 markdown of its own.
