Here's how you can save an incredible $850 with a Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G purchase
Despite its exorbitant price and what many seem to view as an uninspired design (to say the least), the 5G-enabled Galaxy S20 Ultra is selling like hotcakes around the world, according to multiple recent reports. Of course, "hotcakes" might be a bit of an overstatement if we compare the shipment numbers of this absolute 6.9-inch monster with high-end Samsung smartphones of previous years, but all things considered, the S20 Ultra is objectively shaping up as a box-office hit.
You can tell how much more popular the jumbo-sized model has proven compared to its "diminutive" 6.2 and 6.7-inch siblings by the near-total absence of compelling Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G deals on Samsung's official US website and at major third-party retailers so far.
That changes today with a colossal $800 discount offered by Best Buy, which does obviously come with a number of strings attached but does not require a trade-in. Instead, what you need to do is agree to a 24-month installment plan with Sprint. You'll also have to be an entirely new subscriber or at the very least be willing to add a new line of service to an existing account at a soon-to-be-terminated carrier.
That may not sound particularly enticing, but all Sprint customers will get the chance to transition to "New T-Mobile" in the near future, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra is high on the list of phones capable of tapping into Magenta's rapidly evolving 5G network combining low, mid, and high-band spectrum for nationwide coverage and blazing fast downloads.
In case you're wondering, the aforementioned $800 markdown will be applied to your account as bill credit for the duration of your two-year "contract", leaving you on the hook for actual monthly payments of only $25.
All in all, you're looking at spending $600 instead of $1,400 for this Snapdragon 865 powerhouse with a primary 108MP rear-facing shooter, a secondary 48MP camera, a massive 5,000mAh battery, a beautiful Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with 120Hz refresh rate support, 12 gigs of memory, 128 gigs of internal storage space, and a single cosmic gray paint job available.
Even better, Best Buy is also throwing in a $50 promotional e-gift card, bringing your already huge savings up to a grand total of 850 bucks.
