The Galaxy S9’s pricing structure is a mess, with US carriers listing entirely different prices for the handset. The cheapest Galaxy S9 you can buy right now costs $720. The Galaxy S9+, meanwhile, is $120 more expensive. These prices do not include tax or trade-in deals. The price will go down significantly if you’re willing to trade-in an old device.
We’ve already told you how to preorder the Galaxy S9, and what to do to get the best price possible. We’ve even shown you a last-minute offer that will help you save $500 with every Galaxy S9 purchase. Well, if you still haven’t ordered the phone, make sure you check out Sam’s Mobile deal.
The retailer is ready to throw in a $150 Sam’s Club gift card with purchase and activation on a two-year subsidy plan, as long as you’re happy choosing AT&T, Sprint, or US Cellular as your carrier.
This “in club only offer” is valid through March 25th. On top of that, the activation fee ($40) will be waved during March 16th and March 18th.
The $350 trade-in deal is also honored as long as you preorder by March 11th, but it only works with AT&T and Verizon order.
As you can see, to get $500 off the Galaxy S9, you have to go with AT&T as your carrier. If you’re happy with that, then the Sam’s Club’s deal is something you should definitely check out — and maybe compare it with AT&T’s $500 off promo.
However, bear in mind that AT&T does charge more for the phone than other carriers. Also, the maximum $350 trade-in rebate is only awarded for former flagships that are in good order. Bring in an older device, and you’ll get less money.
