Samsung's Galaxy S9 is here, and while there's a lot of hype and excitement surrounding the very latest that Samsung has to offer, that doesn't necessarily mean it's the phone for you.
The Galaxy Note 8 is Samsung's other main flagship that came out last October, and just like the Galaxy S9, the Note 8 has a gorgeous Infinity Display, fast processing power, and dual rear cameras. Add all that together with its iconic S Pen, and you end up with a phone that might serve you better than the Galaxy S9 ever could.
You can find a lot of deals on the Note 8 to help make its intimidating price tag much more reasonable, and these are our favorites.
Buy a Note 8 at T-Mobile, get another one free
Being able to get two phones for the price of one is always something we can get behind, and whether you're a new or existing T-Mobile customer, that's exactly what the Un-Carrier is offering.
To get this deal, you'll first need to buy two Note 8s on monthly installment plans. Once you receive the phones, you'll call T-Mobile, transfer your number, and then trade in an eligible device. Once your trade-in has been received, you'll fill out an online form and then get a prepaid MasterCard within 6-8 weeks for $750 (the cost of one of one Note 8).
Save up to $396 with activation on Sprint at Best Buy
Best Buy is one of the most popular places to shop for new phones, and if you're a Sprint customer, the retailer is cutting the Note 8's price by as much as $396 when leased on a Sprint Flex plan.
As long as you activate the Note 8 on a new line of service, you'll pay just $18/month for the phone instead of the regular $40/month. You'll need to upgrade the Note 8 after 18 months since you're just leasing the device, but if you want to own it, you can still save $250 by paying $29.58/month for 24 months (normally $40/month).
Get a Galaxy S8 for free when buying the Note 8 on AT&T
If you're an AT&T customer and want to get the Note 8, you can score a free Galaxy S8 when activating both devices on an AT&T Next plan.
The Galaxy S8 will be made free thanks to monthly bill credits, meaning you'll end up paying $31.76/month to get your hands on a brand-new Galaxy Note 8 and S8. In our eyes, that's not a bad deal at all.
Buy a Note 8 and get the Gear S3 for just $99
As if a free phone wasn't enough, AT&T is also offering Note 8 buyers the chance to get the Gear S3 Frontier or Classic for just $99.99 when activated on a 2-year agreement.
The Gear S3 is Samsung's most powerful smartwatch to date, and it comes with a full fitness-tracking suite, the ability to make payments via NFC and MST, built-in GPS, and an LTE radio so you can stay connected even when you venture away from your Note 8.
