How to Get the Galaxy S8 Even If You Can't Afford the Price
The excitement for the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S8 continues today as various carriers have released information on how you can get the phone even if you can afford it's hefty full price. As we reported, the S8 is going to run about $720 while the S8+ will go for approximately $840 if you plan on buying upfront - not pocket change by any means. Thankfully, there will be other options if you don't have that kind of cash lying around.
Sadly the days of free upgrades with contract renewals are gone, but now payment plans have taken their place and here is the rundown of what kind of deal each major carrier is offering on Galaxy S8 upgrades:
AT&T - ATT is offering a buy one get one deal on the S8 and S8+ with monthly charges ranging from $28 to $36 depending on the length of the installment plan. Here you can also pick up the Gear S3 for $50 with your S8 purchase if you sign a two-year agreement. On top of all this, if you're getting a service agreement, you can get the Galaxy Tab E or Gear S2 for just 99 cents.
T-Mobile - With T-Mobile, you can pay $30 a month for the S8 and $30 a month for the S8+ as well if you do a $130 down payment.
Sprint - If leasing a phone is the best option for you, Sprint is the way to go as they will offer S8 leases for $31.25 a month for 18 months or the S8+ for 35.42 per month for 18 months. On top of that, you will be eligible for a phone upgrade after 12 payments. If you will be preordering the phone and do so with Sprint, you will be entered into a sweepstakes for various prizes.
Verizon Wireless - Finally, Verizon may be the place you can save the most money as they're offering the S8 and S8+ for as low as $15 a month if you have an eligible trade-in. Without the trade-in, you can pay $30 a month for the S8 and $35 for the S8+ for 24 months.
So there you have it, if you don't have a big budget to help you get your hands on a Galaxy S8, one of these installment plans will be your best bet to get your hands on the phone when it arrives on April 21st.
