The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ go up for pre-order in most parts of the world from March 2 including the United States. Samsung is among the very few companies that has a habit of making pre-orders for its flagship handsets live within a few days of its official unveiling and then shipping it out to customers within a couple of weeks from then.
Given how beautiful the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ look and the sheer number of features they pack, it is not surprising that the handsets are right at the top of the wishlist of many people out there. This also means that most people are looking for the best deals that they can get on the Galaxy S9 or S9+ so that they can reduce the hole in their wallet.
Best Samsung Galaxy S9 Deals
AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be available for pre-orders across all major carriers in the United States starting from March 2. There’s little difference in price between AT&T and T-Mobile for the Galaxy S9, though Verizon is charging slightly extra for the handset for no apparent reason.
Nonetheless, all three carriers are offering some great deals on the Galaxy S9. If you trade-in your existing smartphone towards the Galaxy S9 or S9+, you can get a trade-in discount of up to $350. The trade-in discount obviously depends on the device that you trade-in. Newer flagship models like the Galaxy S8, iPhone 8 etc. will fetch you the most value, while older flagships like the Galaxy S7, iPhone 7 etc. will fetch you considerably lower.
The $350 trade-in discount will be applied as monthly bill credits.
If you want the absolute best deal on the Galaxy S9 or S9+ in the United States, you need to head over to Best Buy on March 2. Only for a day, the retailer is offering an additional $100 discount on the Galaxy S9 or its Plus sibling. This requires you to buy the handset from one of the three major carriers in the US — AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
Keep in mind that this $100 discount is in addition to the $350 discount that all the U.S. carriers will throw in if you trade-in your existing smartphone towards the Galaxy S9 or S9+.
The only bummer here is that you will receive the discount via monthly bill credits. Nonetheless, this is still among the best deals that you can find for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ for now.
For now, these are the best pre-order deals that we could find for the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Surprisingly, no carrier or retailer has mentioned anything about pre-order gifts with the handset which is a bit unusual. It is likely that this will be revealed closer to the phone’s pre-order date.
