Get the unlocked Galaxy Note 9 from Best Buy starting at only $800 with carrier activation
Even though it’s been legitimately raining Galaxy Note 9 deals and discounts over the past few weeks, it’s obviously still too early for the S Pen-wielding powerhouse to be considered a bargain.

But Samsung and Best Buy know full well Apple’s new iPhones will steal the limelight in just a couple of days, joining forces for yet another decent promotion. This time, there are no gift cards and freebies involved, no trade-ins required, and the savings offered are a flat $200 regardless of what major US carrier you prefer to subscribe to.

Eligible operators include Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, although technically, you’re looking at an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 variant here. What you’ll need to do is activate said unlocked phone on a new or upgraded Verizon service line online or on a new line for AT&T or Sprint in a physical store.

Then, instead of coughing up at least $999.99, you’ll be able to pay as little as $799.99 for a beautiful, blazing fast device with an extra-large battery, awesome cameras, and a more complex than ever S Pen.

We’re obviously talking about the 128GB configuration, but digital hoarders will be happy to hear the $200 discount applies to the unlocked model featuring 512 gigs of internal storage space as well. That bad boy normally retails for $1,249.99, currently fetching $1,049.99 at Best Buy with immediate carrier activation while also packing 8GB RAM.
Those are still sky-high prices, but they’re gradually getting better.

My Thoughts: The phone is great, its price isn't. $1000 can get you a good ultrabook. $1249 can get you a great gaming laptop. Both will have a life well over 3-4 years. Just waiting for OP/Xiaomi to introduce same features at a much lower price. Though I am curious as to why someone got this phone and in which config..
