The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are two very compelling Android phones. Both tout gorgeous AMOLED displays, incredibly fast performance, reliable cameras, you name it. If you're in the market for a new handset, both the 8 and 8 Pro are well worth your attention.
Should you find yourself wanting to buy one of the phones for yourself, it's important to know where you should go to do that and where you can get the best deal.
Below, you'll find a full breakdown of where the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are being sold, what sales/promotions are being offered, and what you need to do to take advantage of them.
OnePlus Buy direct
Unsurprisingly, one of the best places you can buy the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro from is directly through OnePlus itself. While OnePlus has expanded the retail and carrier availability of its phones more than ever with the OnePlus 8 series, buying on the OnePlus website continues to be a fantastic experience.
Both the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are available, as are all of the core color options. This includes Interstellar Glow and Glacial Green for the OnePlus 8, along with Ultramarine Blue, Glacial Green, and Onyx Black for the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's the full breakdown of what's available:
- OnePlus 8 in Glacial Green w/ 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — $699
- OnePlus 8 in Interstellar Glow w/ 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage — $799
- OnePlus 8 Pro in Glacial Green w/ 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — $899
- OnePlus 8 Pro in Ultramarine Blue w/ 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage — $999
- OnePlus 8 Pro in Onyx Black w/ 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage — $999
You can buy the phones outright at the full retail price or take advantage of 24-month financing with 0% APR. OnePlus also offers optional protection plans powered by Servify for things like shattered screens, accidental damage, extended warranties, and more.
In honor of Black Friday, OnePlus is currently offering discounts of $200 on most versions of the 8 and 8 Pro. This means you can pick up the OnePlus 8 with 8GB RAM/128GB storage for just $499 and the 12GB RAM/256GB storage model for $599. If you'd rather opt for the OnePlus 8 Pro, the 12GB RAM/256GB storage variant is on sale for $799.
Finally, OnePlus offers free shipping for orders of $100 or more and has a 15-day return period where you can return the phone for any reason if it ends up not being a good fit.
Buying direct from OnePlus is a smart move. The company's online storefront carries all variants of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, offers convenient financing, and optional protection plans to cover your purchase with an extra safety blanket. Right now, you can save up to $200 thanks to Black Friday savings.
Amazon Prime shopping
You can buy just about anything on Amazon, and for the first time ever, that now applies to OnePlus phones. With the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, OnePlus finally brought its phones to the world's largest online retailer.
Amazon's carrying all of the same configurations that you'll find on the OnePlus website, though stock has been pretty hit-or-miss throughout all of 2020. If the model you're shopping for isn't available when you check, it's worth coming back in a couple of days to see how things have changed.
You'll find some nice savings over on Amazon, too, including the 8GB RAM/128GB storage OnePlus 8 being down to $659 ($40 off its retail price). Even more impressive is Amazon's deal for the OnePlus 8 Pro, which brings the 12GB RAM/256GB storage option down to just $800 (a savings of $200).
Furthermore, OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro models sold by Amazon come with Alexa built-in.
Amazon is selling just about every model of the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro that you'll find on OnePlus's website, though stock can be hard to find. If you buy right now, you can save up to $200 on the top-tier version of the OnePlus 8 Pro.
T-Mobile Get half off
OnePlus has once again partnered with T-Mobile to bring its latest phones to the Un-Carrier, but with a bit of a catch. While you can go to T-Mobile's website or your local store to buy the OnePlus 8, you won't find the more premium OnePlus 8 Pro.
T-Mobile is selling the OnePlus 8 in Onyx Black and Interstellar Glow, which is noteworthy for the fact that OnePlus's website only offers Onyx Black for the 8 Pro. Both colors are the 128GB storage configuration and sell for $599.99. Alternatively, you can spend $0 down and finance the phone for $25/month over 24 months.
The best part about buying from T-Mobile is that you can currently save 50% — if you meet a couple of requirements. After you buy a new OnePlus 8 on a monthly installment plan and add a new line of service, you'll automatically get promo credits over 24 months to bring down your monthly payments to just $12.50/month.
T-Mobile is offering just the OnePlus 8, but if that's the model you're interested in, the Un-Carrier is worth a look. If you buy the phone on an installment plan and add a line of service, you can save 50% on your purchase.
Verizon Exclusive color
The OnePlus 8 is the first OnePlus phone to be sold on Verizon, and in doing so, picks up the fabulous carrier name of "OnePlus 8 5G UW." That aside, there are a couple of big reasons why you may be interested in buying from Verizon.
Verizon is selling the 128GB variant of the OnePlus 8, but it's more expensive here than anywhere else. Verizon's pricing has it listed at $799.99 outright or $33.33/month with 24 monthly payments. In addition to Onyx Black, Verizon is also offering an exclusive Polar Silver color.
Verizon has some deals of its own you'll want to consider, including the ability to buy one OnePlus 8 and get another for free. You'll need to add a new line, get both phones on installment plans, and make sure both have a qualifying Unlimited plan. Once that's done, you end up with two OnePlus 8s for the price of one. If you follow those requirements but opt for the cheaper Select Unlimited plan, you'll save $400.
Finally, if you add a new line or upgrade an existing one, you can save $200 or $100 on the OnePlus 8, respectively.
Whether you're a new or existing customer, Verizon has some pretty sweet savings for anyone interested in the OnePlus 8. As long as you're OK jumping through some hoops, you shouldn't sleep on these deals.
