Costco offers big instant savings on the Galaxy S10 and S10e with (almost) no strings attached
The Galaxy S10 is handsome, powerful, and no longer very expensive
Samsung's tremendously well-reviewed Galaxy S10 flagship lineup is unsurprisingly selling like hotcakes, according to early word around the analyst water cooler, but that doesn't mean there's no room for deal sweeteners to further boost this seemingly healthy sales pace.
great pre-order promotion, several decent special offers have popped up in recent weeks, including one for the Galaxy S10e, which wasn't initially eligible for that cool free pair of Galaxy Buds. The "inexpensive" 5.8-incher, along with its snazzy 6.1-inch sibling, are now on sale at another retailer for a limited time.If you missed out on or perhaps decided to skip the manufacturer's objectively
Namely, Costco until March 27. The member-exclusive in-store deal allows you to actually purchase the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy S10e at a lower price than usual, which arguably beats any freebie someone else might throw in. You're not looking at microscopic discounts either, but a full $100 off the list price of the S10e and $200 instant savings as far as the "regular" S10 is concerned.
That's pretty much as good as it gets for devices as new and popular as Samsung's latest Galaxy S-series entries. It's important to point out that Costco Warehouse members don't appear to qualify for any markdowns on the jumbo-sized Galaxy S10+, while the discounted S10 and S10e will need to be activated on T-Mobile to go down from $849 to $649 and from $699 to $599 respectively.
That's right, Costco actually sold the two Snapdragon 855 powerhouses for $50 less than most other authorized US retailers to begin with, which essentially means you're looking at $150 and $250 price cuts on the S10e and S10 respectively. No monthly installments or bill credits involved, no trade-in or new service line required. Just upfront T-Mobile activation and full payment.
In case you're wondering, the only decent rival for the Galaxy S10e and S10 we can think of in the sub-$650 segment is the $579 and up OnePlus 6T. But even that bad boy packs a slowly aging Snapdragon 845 processor.
