T-Mobile's Galaxy S10 scores $300 discount at Costco with (almost) no strings attached

T-Mobile's Galaxy S10 scores $300 discount at Costco with (almost) no strings attached
At a recommended price of $750 and up, it's fairly easy to understand the appeal of the 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S10e with a beautiful flat screen, top-notch processor, dual rear-facing cameras, and reliable side-mounted fingerprint scanner in tow. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10+ is ideal for uncompromising power users who don't mind spending a full $1,000 for a larger and curvier display, a secondary front-facing shooter, a third rear camera, and a massive 4,100 mAh battery.

But that leaves the "regular" Galaxy S10 without a clear target audience at 6.1 inches, with a 3,400 mAh battery, single front camera, and a $900 price tag attached to its name. Fortunately, you can now purchase the awkwardly positioned high-end phone at only $599.99 with a qualified T-Mobile activation. There are no special requirements or strings attached to this killer new Costco deal, although you will need a membership at the popular warehouse club chain to score the $300 discount.

Technically, the new "final price" is listed as including a slightly humbler $250 markdown after $200 "instant warehouse coupon savings" and $50 "additional instant savings", but that's only because Costco typically sells the S10 for 50 bucks lower than Samsung or T-Mobile. At the same time, it's worth pointing out that the T-Mo-specific variant of the powerful Snapdragon 855 phone currently fetches $799.99 after a small $100 reduction on its manufacturer's US website.

We've also seen a flurry of attractive deals offered in the past few weeks by top-rated eBay sellers, Amazon, Best Buy, Verizon, and even Costco a couple of times before, but this latest promotion is arguably one of the most compelling to date, requiring no trade-in, network switch, or new line of service, and involving no monthly installments or bill credits. Just a full outright payment of 600 bucks in a Costco warehouse and "qualifying" T-Mobile service (existing lines presumably allowed.)
