Do you know what today’s date is? If not, take a quick glance at your calendar. There’re only four more days until the release date of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. If you’re in the market for one, where will you get yours? I can tell you one thing for sure. Out of the big four U.S. Carriers, AT&T seems to have the most enticing deal when it comes to preording the aforementioned upcoming devices.
The Galaxy S8 is being offered with two options on AT&T Next and AT&T Next Every Year on their new 5G network. The first will bring lower monthly payments at $25 per month, but the length of the payments is extended to 30 months and the option to trade in to get another phone becomes active after 24 months. The second will bring higher monthly payments at $31.25 per month, with the upside being only having to make the payment for 24 months and being able to upgrade to another phone after 12 months. The Galaxy S8+ has the same options, with pricing at $28.34 and $35.42 per month.
To top the Samsung Gear VR with a controller that the other carriers are also offering, AT&T is sweetening the deal even more with the following offers:
- Up to $750 in credits towards another Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+
- A Samsung Gear S3 for only $49 with a 2-year service agreement
- Get a Samsung Tab E and/or a Samsung Gear S2 for only .99 cents, when you activate a 2-year agreements
The extra $750 kicks in if you plan on getting DirectTV service and an AT&T Next plan. Even if you aren’t looking to get satellite TV, AT&T will still offer you $650 for switching from a different carrier and an old device is traded in. If you only need one Galaxy S8 or S8+, Verizon may be the way to go due to competitive pricing. AT&T’s is also a pretty good deal if you’re at all interested in smartwatches, as you’ll only be paying $50 rather than the $300 that the watches are currently priced at.
