Verizon’s Galaxy S5 already half off from Amazon

Verizon Galaxy S5 Sale

Samsung’s hotly anticipated Galaxy S5 smartphone just debuted a few short days ago, but the device is already being sold at a big discount. Verizon Wireless’ version of the new flagship phone, which normally starts at $199.99 on contract for the 16GB model, can now be ordered from Amazon for just $99.99 — a discount of 50% off the up-front cost of the phone.

The new Galaxy S5 is reportedly off to a flying start, with recent reports suggesting that sales climbed into the millions after just one day of availability. The 16GB Verizon model was also the best-selling smartphone on at the time of this writing.

Amazon is not clear on whether the $99.99 price on Verizon’s Galaxy S5 is a temporary sale or a permanent price reduction, but it appears to be working. The handset is currently sold out on Amazon’s site, though it can still currently be ordered at the discounted price.

The site does not indicate when it expects to receive additional inventory, saying only “order now and we’ll deliver when available.”
