    I've got a one year old S8 plus that I'm very happy with but if there's a Note 9 deal that's too good to pass up, I'll make the move.

    Verizon customer BTW

    And this year, with business itself in the state it's in? Even crystal balls are saying "no comment". Is the phone made in China? Then watch out if you're in the US. After 20 years in the business, I wouldn't try to guess on the price of a generic wire earphone this year. (No political content here, just a general business comment.)

    If I was in the market for a Note9, I would just check their website every few days. Sometimes, carriers will just reduce the price temporarily out of nowhere.
    Most big deals around the holidays require a new line of service or just include a free gift.

    Last year, I believe Target offered a $300 gift card.

    Every Sunday check Best Buy and Target, every now and then one (or both) of them will offer a gift card with a purchase. Target just offered a $150 gift card.

    In my experience the best deals can usually be had on launch day or pre-order. T-Mobile had a $500 credit for trade-in of an older phone (I got it for an S7 Edge) plus a free headset worth $299 from Samsung. It'll be hard to beat even on Black Friday.

    The tmobile trade in required a paid off phone and about a 2 year agreement (contract).
    Also that rebate is over the course of your agreement, not a one time payment. Most who preordered had a down payment. If you cancel you owe the original price and lose the trade in value.
    In my opinion, that's not a good deal. I waited for the price to drop and no down payment, so then I'll JUMP next year, maybe.

    ETA back on topic. I'd do what the others suggest. Keep your eye out. Even Amazon had about a month of deals prior top black Friday last year.

    I got a $300 gift certificate on a note 8 last year at Target. Great deal. Eventually sold it for $630 so I basically used the phone for 5 months for free.

    Best buy has a great trade in offer and 150 off right now. I traded in my Note 8, got a 500 best buy gift card, paid it on the new phone, and the final price of the Note 9 was 350.

    Isn't it always only on a new line?

    Only black Friday deals I'm looking for are the Samsung watches for my wife and daughter. Hopefully something comes through real nice.

    Last year after black Friday, in December, the S3 was on sale at Best Buy. I was keeping my eye out for that one and it finally went on sale.

    I'd like a Note9 512gb in blue or black. I don't like my chances of a deal. Nobody stocks them. The big memory is my greatest attraction to the phone.

    No always. Sometimes you will see a gift card only with a new line. However, a lot of the time, you'll see it with either a new line or also activation of the device.

    For example, right now, Best Buy and Target are both offering gift cards ($100 and $150 respectively) for activation of a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL. I am waiting for a similar deal with the Note 9 before I pick it up. Best Buy is also offering $150 off the price (not a gift card) when you sign up for the 24 month payment option. Around this time last year, Best Buy offered a $250 gift card for activation of a Note 8.

    Plus if you trade it in before the agreement is up, you don't get the full value of the rebate or trade in phone.

    The gift card is absolutely better because I will use that gift card on the Galaxy Watch, coupled with my Best Buy reward certificates that are about to expire.
