    Where I get the phone from will be determined by pre-order incentives. For the S7, best buy gave out the Gear VR (which I sold), a 64gb SD card and free VR content.

    Just a warning though people who had the Note 7 had a nightmare of a time returning it to target. Some eventually had to go straight to Samsung for their refund.

    Looks like samsung will offer the a free Gear VR with Controller plus Oculus content bonus and Platinum Experience with Samsung Rewards when you pre-order.

    Or for $99 you can get the full Gear VR experience including premium headphones by AKG and 256GB memory card.

    For AT&T the discount is only $50. But the retail price of the phone before the discount is already $50 or $100 less than other carriers.

    The VR will be sold whenever I decide to preorder the 8+. I just hope Samsung brings back the $200 trade-in bonus.

    Looks like that $100 off is only for the S8+. They show $50 off a regular S8.

    Look on Sprint's website, they have a countdown timer. It looks like you can pre-order starting at midnight.

    Yes target was horrible, Samsung and carriers had to step in for a lot of people. I would avoid target, I can bet targets note 7 buyers last year will

    Best Buy’s Galaxy S8 preorder deal is better than anyone else’s – BGR
    Pretty sure that article is incorrect. You can view the devices and prices on the Best Buy website right now - and it's showing $50 off the S8 and $100 off the S8+.

    The other quirk about how they are doing it is that they are reducing the monthly payment by a few bucks each month (For AT&T at least). You don't get the discount if you buy it outright.

    Best Buy gets a kickback from the carriers for signing customers up on EIP. They don't get the kickback if the customer pays for the device in full. That's why their option to buy devices in full are priced higher. They have to make their profit on the device.

    So is Best Buy paying the first $100 down? To clarify, I wanted to know if I wanted to pay off the phone in a month later would that $100 be applied or is it applied over time?

    Thanks. Yeah, I knew that...I wasn't as clear as I should have been. I'm used to Best Buy showing me the price of the unit when I'm buying it - even on NEXT. In the case of the S8/+ they only show the monthly payment. You have to do the math and multiply the monthly payment by the number of months you choose to see the "actual" price you're paying.

    And, as you mentioned, if you select to pay full price you won't see any discount off of MSRP.

    I'm not 100% sure.

    The way it should work is your EIP should show 24 payments of the lower price. If you decide to pay it off after you sign the EIP then you would pay 24 * the listed payment.
