    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?!

    The BOGO at Verizon? Do you not know anyone who can use that second line? And trade in your S8 possibly

    Verizon only makes you pay the taxes if you choose the device payment plan.

    The way I see it, if you can't pay for it out right, you shouldn't be buying that much of a phone. I paid for mine outright.

    I agree, but unfortunately many of the deals require some sort of payment plan. If I have the ability to buy outright, but can save a decent amount overall with a payment plan (I.e. Verizon's BOGO offer), then I'll take a payment plan. Gotta pick what works best for you.

    So I'm guessing you buy your vehicles outright too? No? Guess you shouldn't be buying that much of a car.

    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.

    Actually a vehicle is indeed a luxury item even if it a necessity of life

    I just checked their site and it shows the 512 GB version as coming soon. I know the regular version showed that at first too, and it's now available. So maybe that means the 512's will be updated for pre-order too. But you don't have too pre-order. You can also wait until it's out and just get it then.

    Aside from that, most places are likely going to have the same or very similar pricing. The biggest differences are usually based on ancillary offers. Trade in's, BOGO, accessory packages, etc. For the phone itself, you're pretty much looking at MSRP across the board.

    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.

    Sometimes you have to be thankful with what you've got....I heard a great saying years ago that has stuck in my brain (unlike lots of stuff). It goes - I cried because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.

    Really? I didn't see that as an option. And am I guaranteed to get $400 for my S8?

    Thank you for this. There are more important things in this world/life than a phone.

    No. You'll get it if it passes their tests, but I see way too many complaints of not getting the full value despite being a good phone. If you don't pass their test, you'll get $25 for it. Read the fine print, they don't give you an option to have your phone returned to you, you're at their mercy. While that may also hold true with other retailers/carriers, there doesn't seem to be many complaints about them screwing people around with trades. I'd suggest doing some research on past direct Samsung trade in experiences before making up your mind.

    I don't know. The phone turns on and has no cracked screen. No water damage. It does have minor scratches. It also has some minor image retention. I'd just hate to send it in and get only $25 for it.

    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.

    Great saying! The deal is here...you don't "Need" that phone, but you "Want" it. You have a phone that works currently I am sure. Wait till the prices drop, you don't have to be the first to get it.

    I heard Best Buy is giving an Extra $50 for trade ins. May want to check their too. And they look at it right there in the store, and give you a gift card and you can put that on your purchase right then for the new Note.
