Live in the U.S. or Canada? Here’s what you need to know about buying the Galaxy Note 9!
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 is here, and as you probably know by now, there’s a lot to get excited about. The all-new S Pen is more powerful than ever before, the cameras are shaping up to be the best we’ve seen from Samsung to-date, and the massive 4,000 mAh battery should be perfect for road-warriors.
Galaxy Note phones are usually available just about everywhere, and with the Note 9, that’s no different.
Whether you live in the United States or Canada, here’s everything you need to know about where to buy Sammy’s latest and greatest.
Starting first with AT&T, the carrier is getting both the 128GB and 256GB models that are priced at $999.99 and $1249.99, respectively.
While you can pay that full price upfront if you’d like, you’ll also be able to finance both storage configurations over 24 months for $41/month and $52/month.
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’ll only be able to pick up the 128GB model. Pricing is the same $999.99, but you’ll also have the option of leasing it for 18 months with the Sprint Flex plan.
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 $999.99 128GB model with no 512GB variant anywhere to be found.
Also, even though this is a pre-paid MVNO, Straight Talk still lets you finance the Note 9 over 24 months to help make its nearly $1000 price tag a bit more affordable.
Moving over to T-Mobile, everyone’s favorite Un-Carrier is selling the Note 9 in 128GB and 512GB flavors.
Full retail pricing is the same, meaning that the 128GB version will set you back $999.99 while the 512GB one is going to cost $1249.99.
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. However, to make that deal a bit sweeter, Verizon’s also running a buy one, get one free promo when you pre-order the Note 9.
You’ll need to add a new line of service and buy both phones on installment plans (a monthly credit will cancel out the cost of one), but even so, this is a great deal to take advantage of if you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck.
U.S. Cellular isn’t nearly as popular as the above carriers on our list, but even so, it’ll still carry the Galaxy Note 9. Better yet, you can choose to pick up either the 128GB or 512GB configuration!
Pricing is still the same at $999.99 and $1249.99, but even so, it’s great to see both models make their way over here.
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.
Stepping away from carriers, Amazon is one of the many retailers in the U.S. that’s got the Note 9 up for grabs.
Amazon’s offering the 128GB and 512GB models for $999.99 and $1249.99, respectively.
There’s no way to finance it with 0% APR like you can with the likes of AT&T, T-Mobile, etc., but you can always use an exisitng credit card or apply for Amazon’s own credit card that comes with up to 5% cash back on Amazon purchases if you’re a Prime member.
Best Buy is the go-to store for all things tech, and as expected, you’ll be able to 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.
When there aren’t any promotions to take advantage of, you’ll spend $999.99 for the 128GB model and $1249.99 for the 512GB one.
Rounding out our U.S. picks, the Galaxy Note 9 will be 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.
Samsung often runs various discounts and goodies on all of the models it sells, so this is another good source to check in with frequently to see what kind of deal is being offered.
And, although it should go without saying at this point, the 128GB option costs $999.99 and the 512GB model is $1249.99.
