    Oh I have. Just this phone is crazy in price though and I phone swap a lot. This will end me from doing that as I don't want to keep spending $1k every few months any more to switch phones. I just don't want to see you get in debt. Been there done that.
    Oh I have the money, I just don't want a good chunk of it going to one item.

    Like everyone, I'm trying to get this phone for the cheapest price. I can't afford it outright, so financing it is my only option. Samsung (TD Bank) won't finance. Verizon is offering only $216 for my S8. Best Buy doesn't have the 512GB version. Help?!
    If you qualify for Verizon financing you can order it through Samsung and do the trade-in. You'll get 400 off instantly which brings the price down to 850.

    Save up and be ready around Black Friday time frame, there's usually good promos going on around then and maybe there will be more colors by then.

    I don't know if your question has been answered but go to Samsung.com and preorder. They're giving $400 trade-in value for the 8. I got $300 for my 7, which is why I went with them and you still can sign up with Verizon's device payment program.

    This is for the 128GB only. I had to read the five print to be disappointed.
    The BOGO at Verizon? Do you not know anyone who can use that second line? And trade in your S8 possibly

    You can buy a 512 and get the 128 free or 2 512's and pay the difference after 1,000. Nothing new the BOGO promotions usually only covering getting the base model phones for free.

    This is one of those unconventional ways but some people may have access so...

    If you work for a company that has a large number of phones deployed and a corporate account with a carrier, see if they are willing to use one of their lines to upgrade at their cost.

    Carriers still offer subsidized pricing to companies (2-year contract) and for many companies the keep lines for years but don't don't upgrade phones yearly.

    Last year at release, I got my boss to let me use an upgrade and pre-order the Note 8... $450 I believe and was even eligible for the free SD card and charge pad. At that price, it was worth it for me.

    I have no desire to upgrade this year but I'm curious what the carriers will be selling them for so maybe I'll check.

    Like everyone, I'm trying to get this phone for the cheapest price. I can't afford it outright, so financing it is my only option. Samsung (TD Bank) won't finance. Verizon is offering only $216 for my S8. Best Buy doesn't have the 512GB version. Help?!

    I din't track Samsung sales anymore, but maybe they have a slash price around Black Friday time? Perhaps Ambassadors @SpookDroid or @STARGATE might be able to answer this? You might have to consider upgrading at Best Buy or something?

    I think you can force adopted storage on Samsung's via ADB commands.

    From my companies Verizon rep... really steep for corp pricing compared to iPhones and other Androids.

    We are selling the Note 9 512 GB for $749.99 on a 2 year contract or device payment for $52.15 a month. The 128 GB is $499.99 on a 2 year contract or $41.81 a month on the device payment plan.

    Last I checked, Vehicles are not a luxury item unless you get high end vehicles and are needed to you to work. A high end smart phone is a luxury item. Your comparison isn't good. Plus vehicles cost 10x more than a phone.

    Either way, still stands. If you are trying to find the cheapest way to afford it, maybe you shouldn't be getting it in the first place. Get the Note 8 now that it will drop in price.
    I'd consider a mate rs porche design a luxury item but a note 9? Nah.

    You should worry more about you than others. Really no need to come on here being that way.

    Thanks. It just sucks to see others getting an item you want and can't have. I'll be living through everyone else as they get theirs.

    I could have, but I did end up figuring out a way to get the 512GB.

    It’s a public forum and he wanted advice. The advice is if you can’t afford it you shouldn’t buy it.
