Where to buy the Galaxy Note 8

You won't be short of choices when it comes to buying the Galaxy Note 8, no matter what country you're in or the carrier you're on.

The Galaxy Note 8 is expensive, for sure, and that means people are going to be cross-shopping a bit to see what carrier or retailer can give them the best deal. Here are all of the most popular places to buy the Galaxy Note 8 around the world, and how much they're charging.


Best Buy

Best Buy is offering the AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and proper U.S. unlocked versions of the Note 8 in Midnight Black and Orchid Grey. The pricing is in line with what the carriers themselves are charging, and the unlocked version will be available for $950. Best Buy will also be the exclusive retailer for the deep sea blue variant when that is launched.

Best Buy has some rotating discounts for each of the different carrier models, which seem to be regularly changing. Verizon is offering big discounts when you trade in your existing phone, up to 50% off the Note 8. AT&T is offering a free Galaxy S8 if you're a DirecTV customer. Sprint is offering a 50% off promo when you lease the phone, and Best Buy is throwing in a $100 gift card on top of that.

Pricing for the T-Mobile Note 8 breaks down like this: $100 down, and an additional $30 per month for 24 months. Quick math will tell you that's a full retail price of $820 if you want to buy it outright. If you're part of T-Mobile's Jump! On Demand program, you'll be able to grab it for $0 down, but also spend $39 per month instead. You can choose between black and orchid grey, just like the other carriers.

T-Mobile is of course participating in Samsung's promotional giveaway for those who order early, offering a free Gear 360 camera (regularly $229) or an SD card and wireless charger ($190) when you pick up your Note 8. You can also get a buy-one-get-one deal for another Note 8 if you start a new line of service and finance both phones.

The big red carrier has the Midnight Black and Orchid Grey available. The phone will be available for $960 total, or $40 per month spread over two years. For a limited time, users will be able to get a bundled 128GB SD card and Fast Wireless Charger (a $190 value) or a bundled Samsung Gear 360 camera (valued at $230). Users will also be able to save $100 on the Gear S3 with purchase. Users can also save $50 on a wireless charger, portable charger and car charger bundle.

AT&T has the Note 8 for $950 total, or as spread out as $31.67 per month for 30 months. AT&T is also offering a buy-one, get-one free deal on the Note 8 when it is purchased on AT&T Next with a DirecTV subscription. Customers with DirecTV will also qualify for $500 off a Samsung TV when they purchase the Note 8. AT&T will also offer the Gear S2 for 99 cents or Gear S3 for $50 on a 2-year agreement when customers buy a Note 8 on AT&T Next.

Customers switching to Sprint will be able to get the Note 8 for 50% off when leasing the phone, only paying $20 per month for 18 months as part of Sprint's "Sprint Flex" program. That totals only $360, which is a pretty great deal on the device. Existing Sprint customers will be able to get the device for $40 per month for 18 months, totaling $720. Users can also participate in Sprint's "Galaxy Forever" program, which will let them upgrade to a new Samsung flagship after 12 months.

If you want to skip the lease and go to a proper purchase, you can finish out payments of $40 per month for 24 months, totaling $960.

Going to Samsung directly is the best way to pick up the proper U.S. unlocked Galaxy Note 8. The unlocked model is initially only offered in black, but that may not be an issue for you particularly when you consider that it will lack any carrier bloatware. The U.S. unlocked model is designed to work on all major U.S. carriers, so you won't have to worry about compatibility issues. Pricing is set at $950.

You can, of course, also buy carrier versions from Samsung as well, if you so desire.

Amazon, too, has the proper U.S. unlocked Galaxy Note 8, coming in at $931. While we'd still recommend buying from Samsung if the price is close or the same, Amazon often offers people a better shopping option since they can use their Amazon credit card, gift cards and the like.

Andrew Martonik

Andrew was an Executive Editor, U.S. at Android Central between 2012 and 2020.

  • $930? and people were complaining about the $720 Z2 Force?
  • Are there any phones in which price was not a complaint?
  • Touche'.
  • Yes. Axon 7.
  • Yes man. Nextbit Robin. $125 phone with 100GB cloud space.
  • That is true, there were complaints, but there is no comparing a note to a zforce. The note is worth a lot more for sure. Sales alone will show that.
  • 240 down? Damn TMobile. I'm waiting to see what lg has before I make my decision
  • Jump on Demand is $0 down after first phone and you can change your phone every 30days
  • I will await the inevitable promotional sale that will occur, and when it happens, kindly take some of my money.
  • That what I'm going to do I learned my lesson with the note 7, I'm going to wait and see if they have the bogo sale in a few months
  • Never seen a BOGO on a note
  • I thought when I purchased the note 5 a few months later it went on a bogo sale but I might be mistaken.
  • I don't know about a BOGO but I do know that the price dropped by at least $100 on at least one occasion on the higher storage model of the Note 5. That was when I picked mine up. I bought my Note 3 during a sale too about 8 months or before the Note 4 dropped.
  • Oh OK I was mistaken, but even waiting a while and getting $100 off is worth the wait
  • There's a BOGOon Note 8 at T-Mobile now but you have to add a line.
  • AT&T already says that they have that deal
  • With directv. Still a good deal
  • I bet discounting starts as soon as the new iPhone preorder term ends and actual deliveries begin. I didn't want to wait. Don't blame anyone who waits... the price is huge... the best tech today has always cost a tonne, and always gets discounted within 6 months.
  • Nearly a $1000 *phew* i'm gonna need some dough.
  • Yikes on the price! That's up there for 64GB and enough for me to wait for LG/Apple before throwing that down to upgrade my N5
  • I don't think even with T-Mobile jump you can get it for 0 down.... I thought they all require a down payment. Now.
  • I thought so too.
  • *cant get it for
  • Yeah I wondered about that too, but the higher monthly payment may make up for it. $40 x 18 month lease is $720, which means they'd let you purchase it at the end of the lease for around $200, totalling $920. That sounds about right, so maybe they won't have a down payment after all!!
  • Oddly enough. Online it says a 24 month payment though? Maybe they stopped doing the 18 month lease thing and finally are giving us 2 full years. Also on their Facebook page they are saying it's a 9:01 pm, tonight pre order!
  • Yeah I saw that too. I think for JOD you might have to call them or visit in store
  • Oh and I'll definitely have to check that out! Did the Facebook post say what time zone for 9:01?
  • Pst. So midnight east coast. There had a post that said pre order the note 8,all the comments from T-Mobile on the post say the same thing.
  • Cool thanks for the heads up!! I'm in the Mountain time zone so 10:00 for me. I wonder how soon they'll ship and get here then lol #excited
  • JPFeifer- You can get the Note 8 for $0. Down but the monthly payment goes from $30.00 p/month to $39.00 p/ month & you must be on TMobiles jump!
  • I had 2 Note 7's, any word on getting a break on the Note 8?
  • I'm hoping for some sort of perk for Note 7 owners myself. Would be great but Samsung did give me $150 on my T-Mobile account.
  • If you haven't seen the news yet, looks like up to $425 off for former Note 7 owners.
  • Whew that's expensive. I think I'll stay with LG but the Note 8 sure is an interesting device. If the V30 is around the $750 mark its a no brainer for me.
  • Note 8 is basically S8+ with the S-Pen. No joke!
  • Wasn't going to preorder but... I didn't think I was missing my SPen so much!😊😥 I'm on T-Mobile Jump so trading in the S8+ for the Note 8 is a no brainier.
  • I wanted to ditch my v20 and go back to the note line but now I gotta wait to see if there's is any future note 8 sales
  • i was planning on getting this but that price may make me save a few hundred and lose the pen and just get an s8+ which i can go grab today. the note 7 was only 800 and i thought that was steep
  • Hahahahahahahahahahaha! Samsung has lost its mind! After tax that's over a grand. Add insurance and a case and you are almost at $1200. What they've just done is allowed the Chinese manufacturers to grab the phablet market. Coupled with a $650 S8+ this has disaster written all over it.
  • It's amazingly nice how cheap phones are in the US, here in South Africa even the smaller S8 is more than an equivalent of IS$1000. It's mind blowing to hear/see you guys complain about a US$1000. That is why I stopped even looking at HTC devices.
  • You all over the place yes we get it you can't afford this phone . Now let others that can enjoy there new purchase Kdoes78 ^^^^
  • YES!!! And the Gear 360 is FREE!!!
  • C-Net mentioned on their live feed right after the unveiling that even though it wasn't announced, Samsung is giving those who purchased the Note 7 will get $450.00 off the Note 8 with trading in their current phone. Not sure if that means you get that high of an ammt off if you stayed with your old Note 4, 3(whatever phone) or only those who got an S7 or Note 5.
  • cnet is saying it but I don't see anyone else confirming it. https://www.cnet.com/products/samsung-galaxy-note-8-phone-first-look/ Absolutely excellent news for original Note 7 owners: Samsung will grant a discount on the Note 8 as an apology for the hassle of having returned your last phone. Note 7 owners who go to Samsung.com will receive an instant trade-in value of up to $425 (about £330 or $AU540) when you upgrade your current phone for a Galaxy Note 8. It's gratifying to see Samsung make good with 2016's endangered, inconvenienced buyers. Moreover, it's the final step Samsung needed to take to finally put the Note 7 disaster to rest.
  • I hope that's accurate because that's the only way I'll get a Note 8.
  • What about Europe?
  • It's Carphone WAREHOUSE in the UK, not Carphone Wireless! Anyhow, I have just placed my pre-order :)
  • And have they dispatched it yet?
    I pre-ordered from Samsung UK and they still haven't even shipped it yet... 😒
  • Yes it's on it's way via DPD for delivery in the next 2hrs. You need to contact Samsung as it looks like they haven't processed your order :( hope you get sorted mate.
  • I just called samsung and asked if there are any current or future plans to offically do right by the previous note 7 oweners with some type of device incentive and they said no. Smh i had to give up 2 note 7s with sprint not giving me any type of incentive at all except the first time telling ups to send the phone back and the second time telling me to return it or they will disable the device remotely. No free phone replacement.. No anything except keeping that sd card promo.
    SAMSUNG could care less about the troubles we had to go through.
  • Not true
  • Get your phone from Best buy you'll get almost 400 in savings an freebies
  • Weird that T-MOBILE doesn't have a pre-order date, but I'm assuming that it will be tomorrow the 24th like everyone else. For right now they have a sign up page to let you know when you can pre-order it. I'm on jump on demand and like others have said I'm curious about it having a down payment or not. The higher monthly price ($40 instead of ~$30) leads me to believe that maybe you actually can void the down payment.
  • In the T-Mobile Facebook page they say tonight at 9:01 pm
  • Going Best buy with there $100 off an freebies now I'll have to watch the clock till 1201 hehe
  • I'm sure, as is Samsung, that there will be a market for this. The Note always has been the elite android flipside to the iPhone. But I'm hoping that everyone stays calm this time around instead of claiming that this is God's smartphone, as they did with the 7 before it started thermally tattooing people. Wait a few months to see if the performance and reliability justify such a high price
  • Nope won't happen this will be the safest phone on the planet . We note lovers can't wait. You can do what you want
  • Sigh...
  • So, on tmobile, at $930 plus tax plus the $25 sim card fee it is well over $1000. I think i'll pass. An spen is not worth that much. Bring it down to $799 at bogo pricing direcly with samsung so it doesn't include that dumb eip plan and you have a deal.
  • Are get a s8 plus which is an excellent alternative
  • Once again Sprint tells its own customers to go to hell screaming on fire. New customers get to pay half the price as existing customers. Well the upside is that then they'll be existing customers and they'll get lit road flare sodomized with the rest of us.
  • But at least we are paying a much cheaper price altogether than what the other carriers are charging. $720 on Sprint while others are paying over $900.
  • They can keep it. There is nothing there to justify the high cost. I have 3 Note 4's and a Note 3 and I can change storage and batteries whenever I need to.
    Yeah, looks nice and I like 6gb of ram but again not worth the price.
  • It is expensive to be sure , but it has just about everything that opens and shuts , and it's water resistant , and like the note 4 did have , it also has a vast array of cool accessories that work with it , and there's no regional B's where the phone will be missing features in one country and missing different features in another country.
    This is another reason after having two earlier note models and later trying two other high-end different brand flagships I bought another Galaxy (S8+) .
  • No offense but you haven't purchased a new phone in years . You not the target audience anymore . You know flat screen TV are all the rage now to hehe I kid I kid .....B Harris 1^^.... note 3 huh really
  • £869 in the UK.... Bloody Hell.
  • Ye I want it but not at that price. Damn.
  • It's the Neymar Jr of phones :)
  • Pre-ordered using the Note7 loyalty offer. $475 is a great price for the Note8.
  • Cant do it through the carriers with zero percent installments. you can only get this deal if you go through Samsung and pay interest or full price
  • Correct. I paid outright. Had I not got that deal, I would have financed through my carrier. Why not spend their money at 0%?
  • Samsung has no interest for 2 years so your imfo is wrong an they carry all the carriers an unlocked
  • harder to get credit through Samsung vs carrier. I tried was denied
  • haha my impeccable credit wasn't denied.
  • I pre-ordered through Best Buy on Verizon. There deal is $150 off, plus with the trade in of my Note 5, I'll get a $20 bill credit each month making my payment $12.75 per month or $306 total. Not a bad deal at all.
  • How exactly did you go about this ? Someone else said they went this route. Did you go to Verizon for the trade in or did Best buy do the trade in ?
  • I’ve always wondered why there aren’t more mobile devices with built-in stylus functionality. Aside from the Note and midrange LG Stylo series, there’s no other competition. Is this a niche market? Tablets like the iPad Pro and Surface seem to be very popular, so why don’t more phones offer stylus functionality? I find stylus’s very useful for drawing, but I guess you could buy a regular capacitive stylus for any phone, but it won’t offer the same gimmicks that the S-Pen does.
  • I never used it when I had notes. The stylus is too thin to hold comfortably and the stylus functionality is too hit and miss across apps. It was basically nothing more than an 11th finger, when I did use it... rarely. It is t worth it for most OEMs to build functionality that raises production and sales cost (or lowers margins if prices don't rise) when the very vast majority of people don't use it.
  • Ordered mine an my wife's from Samsung the promotion was to good to pass up
  • Is it possible to buy an unlocked Note 8 from Canada and use it here in the States? I really want the Blue phone, but for whatever reason, its not available here. I am on Sprint, but by the time I get my new phone I may have switched to Verizon, so it would need to work on either one of those.
  • You should be good if it's unlocked
  • Sometimes I forget that there's no point in reading these if you live anywhere else in the world...
  • I was a previous Note 7 owner so Samsung gave me $425 credit towards my GS7 trade in. I'm also getting a free wireless charger and 128GB SD card.
  • Yikes... Is anybody actually happy? Every manufacturer has gotten roasted in this thread, including Google. 😂
  • Sams Club giving you and extra $200 gift card that you can use toward the Note 8...might wait till Christmas to see what the next deal is... (thats if my Note 4 can survive that long) ..is it me or do you think they sent out a signal too slow my NOTE 4 DOWN!!!...DAMN YOU CELLPHONE COMPANYS!!!...lmao
  • Just a note about the T-Mobile purchase option, even if you're on Jump (which I have been for years)... You still need to shell over $210 down.
    Your best bet is to go direct to Samsung and they have $0 regardless. It's an especially sweet deal if you previously had the Note 7 and have a phone on their list to trade in. I luckily had my old S5 in mint condition which I will send their way once I get my Note. I then plan on giving back my current device to T-mobile and deactivating Jump since it's really useless if you don't have a phone purchased through them. In the T-mobile store, the rep told me that they probably wouldn't insure a phone purchased outside of your plan because it's "3rd party." I told them technically it's 1st party since T-Mobile buys the phones from the same place I'm purchasing my Note....3rd party is buying from some no name store down the street or a private seller.
  • Around the world for AC meand US, Canada and the UK. lol
  • "...means..". Somehow the "edit" button never works on the mobile site
  • I'm already holding my precious N8!
  • Did you get your bundle incentives? I'm wondering how that works? I pre-ordered this week, but didn't see anything on TMO site about choosing the camera or charging bundles.
  • Once you get the device with the IMEI number, download the Samsung Shop app on your phone. Then go from there! Very simple. I've had my device for a week and my freebie is already scheduled to arrive tomorrow.
  • Cool, thanks for the info and enjoy your new Note8!
  • If you pay monthly and upgrade every year why complain about the $1000 price tag. You are pretty much only paying $450-$500
  • I ordered through the TMO website (before the pre-order date expiration) so I could take advantage of the incentives. I want to get the Gear360 camera, but I didn't have an option to choose the camera or the wireless charging pad. Is that something that is supposed to be worked out later? Will TMO or Samsung reach out to me to ask which one I want? I don't want to miss out.
  • BestBuy knock off 💯 bucks off price when u pre-order with them
  • Headed to VZW today with my Note5 to trade in. Are the extras bundles offered in-store?
  • They won't have it until tomorrow. Freebie bundles require registering with Samsung. Hopefully I'll get it half off with my note5 trade in.
  • UK... Mobiles.co.uk??? £150 upfront, £39 monthly for unlimited texts minutes and 10gb of data on o2! Much better deals than what you android central informed us about!
  • On my phone new bookmarks keep getting added to Managed Bookmarks folders. How do I delete the folder and prevent it from happening again?
    If you do, next yrs version will be 1200
  • You're funny. Most people aren't paying that much for the Note. Try again.
  • I agree with you 100%, that`s why I dumped Samsung and Apple and bought HTC U11 for half the price.
  • Well I paid less for the better phone in my opinion. 530 out the door after rebates an free gift there's no replacement for the note
  • Pre-Ordered the Note 8 From Samsung the same day it was announced (UK). Still not even dispatched, even though the website said 14th...
    Very disappointed... I could go out to carphone and get one right now, yet here I am waiting for my pre-order.
  • GiffGaff UK offering it sim free for £819 - the lowest handset only price in UK :)
  • Also, I definitely want the dual sim version also when Samsung launches blue one in UK.
  • Do this people at AC even check this deals? this is 3 month old deals they promote like Bfry. There's no BOGO deal for note-8 on Tmobile, nor the 128GB card with wireless charger or 360 cam from Samsung. Nothing but PR from this guys 24/7. Please someone return P.N. and send this Andrew guy to take pictures at MWC or something.
  • Recycling stories? Cool.
