We saw a lot of new devices announced at MWC 2018, but by far, the Galaxy S9 lineup stole the show. Although the device is not available in stores just yet, you can head over to an array of retailers and get your pre-orders in today.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will officially launch on March 16th, but you’ll want to move quickly. This is so you won’t have to worry about potential delays due to Samsung’s latest device flying off of shelves.
It comes as no surprise that Samsung will be selling its latest devices directly. We have seen devices like the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus offered directly, so this move makes sense.
As for pricing, the Galaxy S9 is available for $719.99, while the Galaxy S9 Plus is available for $839.99. For those who want to save a few bucks, Samsung is offering up to $350 off a purchase with a “qualifying trade-in”. Additionally, if you pre-order from Samsung today, you’ll get the device a few days early on March 14th.
Of course, the device you purchase from Samsung will be carrier unlocked, meaning you can take it to your carrier of choice for service.
Best Buy is also joining in on the pre-order fun, as the big-box retailer is offering the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. You can pre-order devices for Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, or the unlocked model.
Keeping with the idea of saving a few bucks, Best Buy is offering $100 off of the Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus for a limited time (except for the unlocked model). For Verizon subscribers, you can save up to $350 when trading in an eligible device, along with getting a $150 Mastercard gift card when porting from T-Mobile.
Unsurprisingly, Verizon is offering the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at a little bit higher price than from Samsung directly. The Galaxy S9 is priced at $799, or $33.33 for 24 months while the S9 Plus is either $930 or $38.74 for 24 months.
If you buy directly from Verizon, Big Red is offering up to $350 off with a qualifying trade-in along with a $150 Mastercard gift card when porting your number from T-Mobile.
In a more than welcome move, T-Mobile isn’t marking up Samsung’s latest devices. Instead, you can get the Galaxy S9 for $720 and the Galaxy S9 Plus for $840.
However, T-Mobile is offering up to 50% off of either the S9 or S9 Plus when trading in a qualifying device. This discount will be applied through bill credits across the 24-month contract.
Other than Verizon, AT&T is offering the second-highest price for the Galaxy S9 lineup. The standard Galaxy S9 is priced at $790 outright or $26.34 over 30 months. The S9 Plus is priced at $915 outright or at $30.50 spread out over 30 months.
AT&T doesn’t seem to be offering any discounts or deals when pre-ordering either of these devices.
Sprint is keeping in line with the pricing being offered by AT&T, with a twist. The Galaxy S9 is priced at either $792 outright, or $33 per month for 18 months. The S9 Plus is priced at $912 outright, or $38 per month for 18 months.
However, Sprint is offering up to $350 in discounts with a qualifying trade-in, along with a $150 gift card. This would bring the price per month down to $13.55 for the Galaxy S9 and $18.55 per month for the Galaxy S9 Plus.
