    I'm confused. When I follow the link for trade-in details, it shows that my working S4 is only worth $24. Does it go to $200 when I order the Note 7?

    I thought the same with my note 3. Anyways, I completed the reservation and they sent me a confirmation email. The 200 dollar minimum trade in is written in the confirmation email. it states ...

    Can't you finance and then pay it off after a month or two?

    I could but I'm on a grandfathered unlimited data plan with ATT. If I finance I'd have to change plans.

    I just left Target. Mobile rep said they won't even sell you the phone if you plan to buy outright. You can only buy the phone if you activate and select the carrier financing option.
    This is still confusing. When you say must select a carrier financing option do you mean you must do an ATT next upgrade? So if I don't have an ATT next available, I'm SOL? I don't understand why they require this. It's definitely not clear in the email that activation equates to carrier financing. Man, why does everyone make things so difficult. If I want to pay $900 for the phone, I ought to be able to do so no questions asked. At a minimum, it would be nice to have some clarity.

    As a follow up, let's assume you have to use a Next financing plan. Can't you just pay it off in full a week later?

    It's about money. If Target signs you up on payment, they are essentially locking you into a contract, which means Target gets paid by the carrier. If they sell it outright, there's no carrier kickback and Target only makes money on the device, which is pretty slim.

    Yep, as long as the terms allow it to be paid off early, you could sign up with financing then pay it off. Many people do this.

    Those are all separate offers. You could go into Best Buy and get the Free Fit2 or 256gb microSD AND free Gear s2 (with 2 year activation) AND .99 Tab E (with 2 year activation).

    You do not have to accept the s2 and the Tab E though as those require 2 year contracts and extra amounts on your bill. Best Buy will give you your Fit2 or SD card in store though rather than mailing in.
    I went to Best Buy specifically to get the Gear Fit 2 when I pre-ordered... They told me I ha story wait until release day. There was a Samsung rep saying the same thing in the store too...

    I told them I had it in kg cart and was about to buy online and it said I could pick up in store that day... I would have done that but I couldn't figure out the payment plan thing on their website with Verizon...

    Anyway - it's pre-ordered with Best Buy and I won't have my watch until the day I get the phone.

    Also - I just paid $40 for the 128 gig card on Amazon. Rather pay $40 for it and get a free watch.

    Yep, that's the plan. I have a Next eligible phone on my plan. So buy the phone, sign up for Next, payoff right away. No biggie.

    Thanks. To take it one step further - If I use my Target card to get the extra 5% savings but buy the phone w/ a payment plan, what exactly am I putting on my card that would make it eligibile for my Target discount if my monthly payments are made through Verizon? Never purchased a phone anywhere but a Verizon flagship store. Thanks!

    Target is $899 plus the Fit or SD card, but you also get a $100 Target gift card. If you're a Red Card holder you should also get an extra 5% off. Not bad if you're planning to buy it out right.

    Still a good deal, but, unless I'm missing something, Target is charging $899 while Verizon is charging $864. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Just mentioning for those (like myself) who are trying to whittle down the price as much as possible.

    I already have the watch activated and there is no monthly fee. Connects to my current Note 4 through WiFi and Bluetooth.

    Spoke to a rep at target. Not every store will be getting the note from every carrier. None of the ones close to me will have the at&t model. Set up a pre order at a store 40 miles away.
    Same here. I'm with AT&T and all the target stores near me (online) only have the Verizon Note 7 available to pre-order. Bummer....

    I'd look at what you'd pay under a two-year contract under Verizon as well. The way I figure it if you were to get it for $299.99 under a two year contract, and then take your 5% off that (if Target has the two year contract for $299, and you pay that to Target with your Target card) brings you to $285. If you then end up paying $20 a month for 24 months under contract that adds up to $480. Add that to the $285 and you have a total of $765. $99 less than your paying $864 out right, or $134 if you were paying the $899. If you take your 5% off the $899 your still paying $855. If you get a $100 gift card that would pretty much make it like you paid $665. If I'm factoring everything right.

    You only get 5% on what you put on your Target card. If it's ZERO DOWN you get ZERO. I just bought an iPhone 6S for my wife and put down $100 and only got $5. If you pay in full you don't get the $100 gift card (if they would even sell it paid up front)..

    The catch is carriers then charge you $20 per month since a contract line again. Verizon off contract per line is $20. It goes to $40 with two year contract phone. Either way they get their money.

    It depends on the plan... I intentionally stick to my legacy nationwide plan so there is no monthly premium change going on contract. That and I have multiple lines with 100gb of unrestricted data per line on Verizon on most of my lines.

    Yep. My point is they shell game the total cost.

    Actually the Target deal is **IF** you have an eligible junker to turn in for $200 + $100 GC = $300 off. Without the "accepted" trade, you are correct.

    That's the same issue here in California all Target stores for Verizon don't have black but silver only.

    Also those who are looking to make a purchase out right. Choose finance option and pay off the phone afterward in order to get the Target $100 dollar gift card.

    The problem with Sam's club if you dont have a membership you cannot place a pre-order and 1-day pass will not be honored either. Target deal works out you can choose the finance option in order to get the $100 gift card and pay of the phone the next day.

    Go with a finance option and pay of the phone when ever you feel like it. Some Target stores will sell the phone out right but for 899.99. If you finance then 849.99 is the price for the phone. Plus you will get the $100 dollar gift card.
