The Galaxy Note 9 is currently available to purchase in the United States in Ocean Blue, Lavender Purple, and Cloud Silver. Starting October 12, Midnight Black will become available.
Starting first with AT&T, the carrier has both the 128GB and 512GB models that are priced at $999.99 and $1249.99, respectively. While you can pay that full price upfront if you’d like, you can also finance both storage configurations over 30 months for $33.34/month and $41.67/month.
If you’re looking to get more bang for your buck, AT&T’s running a buy one get one 75% off promo that requires a new line of wireless service and TV through DIRECTV.
You can also get double the regular trade-in value of your current phone up to $600 and take 50% off the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo when you buy the Note 9.
Moving over to T-Mobile, everyone’s favorite Un-Carrier is selling the Note 9 in 128GB and 512GB flavors. Full retail pricing is normally $999.99 and $1249.99, respectively, but for a limited time, T-Mobile’s knocking these down to just $870 and $1119.99.
Alternatively, you can get the 128GB model for $30/month and $150 down on an equipment installment plan or the 512GB version for $399.99 down + $30/month for 24 months.
On top of those already solid savings, T-Mobile will also let you take $720 off the Note 9 via 24 monthly bill credits when you add a new line of service.
Similar to AT&T and T-Mobile, Verizon is also selling the 128GB and 512GB Note 9.
By default, you’ll pay $999.99 and $1249.99 for each model, respectively. For Verizon’s installment plans, you’ll pay just $33.33/month for the 128GB unit and $43.74 for 512GB over the course of 24 months.
Those monthly rates will result in a total of $200 in savings compared to the retail pricing, and if you trade in your current phone, you’ll either get $100 back if you upgrade your line or $300 back when you switch from another carrier.
If Sprint’s your carrier of choice in the U.S., your choices are a bit more limited. Specifically, Sprint is not selling the 512GB Note 9.
Instead, you can only pick up the 128GB model. Pricing is the same at $999.99, but you’ve also got the option of leasing it for 18 months with the Sprint Flex plan for $41.66/month. For a limited time, however, Sprint’s cutting that down to just $20/month.
Post-paid carriers are fine and dandy, but if you prefer buying pre-paid, Straight Talk Wireless has your back as it’s also carrying the Note 9.
Similar to Sprint, Straight Talk is selling just the 128GB model. Here, the price is slightly discounted to jsut $949.99.
If you prefer to pay month-to-month, you can either get a $46.17/month for 24 months or $115.92/month for 15 months plan depending on your credit history.
U.S. Cellular isn’t nearly as popular as the above carriers on our list, but even so, it’s still carrying the Galaxy Note 9. Better yet, you can choose to pick up either the 128GB or 512GB configuration!
Pricing is the same at $999.99 and $1249.99, and for a limited time, installment pricing has been reduced to $28.30/month for the 128GB model and $36.64/month for the 512GB one. No matter which one you pick, the installment plan runs for 30 months and requires $0 down with 0% APR.
For the last U.S. carrier on our list, we’ve got Xfinity Mobile.
Like most other carriers, Xfinity Mobile is selling the Note 9 in 128GB and 512GB options for $999.99 and $1249.99. You can buy the phone outright if you’ve got the cash, or finance it over the course of 24 months to lessen the stress a bit on your wallet.
If you purchase a Note 9 on Xfinity Mobile, activate a new line, and port over an existing number, you can get a $200 prepaid card that you can use wherever you’d like.
Stepping away from carriers, Amazon is one of the many retailers in the U.S. that’s got the Note 9 up for grabs.
The phone’s available on Amazon in both 128GB and 512GB flavors, and while the 512GB model costs the regular $1249.99, the 128GB version is a bit lower at $979.
Best Buy is the go-to store for all things tech, and as expected, can purchase the Note 9 here, too.
Just like the Note 8, Best Buy allows you to purchase the Note 9 through AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, or completely unlocked. Best Buy typically matches any promotions being offered by carriers, in addition to running its own from time to time. As such, if you’re looking for the vest best deal, you’ll want to hit up Best Buy’s site to see what’s being offered.
If you decide to buy the Note 9 through Best Buy, the retailer is offering a free 32-inch TV with activation of the Note 9 on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, or if you buy it unlocked. Additionally, Best Buy is the only place in the U.S. where you can buy the Cloud Silver color.
B&H is known for offering killer deals on new tech, and with the Galaxy Note 9, that’s no different.
You can pick up the Note 9 at B&H in 128GB and 512GB flavors and pricing is the same at $999.99 and $1294.99. However, B&H gets a nice edge as 0% tax is collected on your order if you live outside of New York or New Jersey.
Want more? B&H customers also get a free Samsung Fast Charge Qi Wireless Charging Stand that would normally set you back $49.99.
Rounding out our U.S. picks, the Galaxy Note 9 is also being sold on Samsung’s official website and through the ShopSamsung app. Shocking, right?
Along with selling the unlocked version of the phone, Samsung also lets you buy the AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile Verizon, and U.S. Cellular variants. And, although it should go without saying at this point, the 128GB option costs $999.99 and the 512GB model is $1249.99.
