Samsung Galaxy S9 joins pre-Black Friday craze with $500 eBay deal
Yes, you’ve already seen this early 2018-released powerhouse priced lower a couple of times by similarly trusted retailers, but Never MSRP has it on special offer today listed as “brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged.” No refurbished or "new other" shenanigans.
Shipping in its “original packaging” for free nationwide, the $500 Samsung Galaxy S9 is unfortunately available in a single color option. On the bright side, that purple paint job certainly makes the 5.8-incher’s shiny glass backplate pop, even with just the one camera in tow and an awkwardly positioned fingerprint scanner.
This SM-G9600 variant comes with dual SIM support (for GSM networks only), a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage space, as well as 3,500 mAh battery capacity, and an IP68-rated waterproof build.
Never MSRP is about as reputable as eBay sellers can be, for the record, with a 99.4 percent positive feedback based on almost 15,000 ratings from the last 12 months.
In case you’re wondering, yes, Samsung has the nerve to charge $720 for the unlocked GS9 on the manufacturer’s official US website right now, although for what it’s worth, that particular deal is sweetened with a bunch of freebies valued at a combined $300 or so. Meanwhile, the best Best Buy can do is offer $300 savings with device payment plans on Verizon or Sprint.
Bottom line, this $500 listing is for all intents and purposes a steal.
