I pre-ordered a TabS9+ through Samsung but I'm going to pick it up ay my local Best Buy. I don't trust delivery to the house ever since I ordered a laptop and wasn't home for the delivery. When I got home the box was leaning against the door for every passer by to see a box exact shape with company name plastered across it!
I guess I'll be waiting a few extra days.
I got the case with it. This will be my first tablet. I bought a cheap 3 in 1 Lenovo like 5 years ago and realized I used it soo much, why not have a nicer screen at the very least
I regret pre-ordering mine at Best Buy because they had no discount on the case the day I purchased it. More likely my salesperson couldn't figure it out.

You bought the S9 Ultra Bookcover keyboard case?
Yeah the full keyboard which costed $350. Highway robbery

I wish Samsung had 50% off on this keyboard as well like they currently have for slim book cover keyboard.

I remember getting the slim book cover keyboard for the S8 ultra and wasn't a fan of it. Only one angle and not full keyboard. This full keyboard is way better and great to use. Except for the cost.

Best Buy Online had the same exact deal with the case. When I went in the store the person that helped me couldn't figure it out. Was saying "not available". But I think there website was just going bonkers, because before I went to the store I was on their page and it would sometimes show things "not available". Then if I went to the same item but through a different path of links it would show in stock! I went home and to Samsungs app.
Did you get the case anyway or would you have? They should really honor that discount on the case, I'd go back or call and see what happens. Samsung themselves might even honor it if you can show you preordered a Tab9

I couldn't get it unless I ordered online.

I got my S9 Ultra yesterday and I love it but I am really having a hard time justifying keeping it when I want to get the Ultra Keyboard cover like I did for the S8 Ultra. 350 is tough to swallow especially when it was free last time. Do these ever go on sale or is there any other type of accessory that is of great quality like the one the S8 had? Thanks for your help

I hear ya. If you didn't sell your s8 ultra keyboard cover you can use that. I instead bought the regular s9 ultra case, which ha2 2 pieces, and exchanged the bottom part with the s8 ultra keyboard.

It's not as secure as the magnets should be, but works just fine.

Samsung is really greedy. $350 for a keyboard case is silly. You can buy a Chromebook with a built in keyboard and screen for less!

Tell me about it. I didn't realize it was going to be that expensive. It's 100 dollars less than the actual tablet after trade in. To be fair, it's a phenomenal cover but wow....I am torn

I would never pay that for any case or cover
You think they drop the price after awhile?

That's what I was asking initially. I wonder if they ever went on sale last year
I looked at the Tab s8 ultra last year but when it was on sale the case wasn't. I guessed it would be for the Tab s9 ultra but they came up with the slim keyboard case instead.

Yes you're right but it really isn't as strong a connection as it is with the S8 (as you mentioned). It does work but it feels flimsy

Doubt it. Samsung as usual copying Apple pricing

The iPad Pro keyboards are expensive and around $350. Guess Samsung thinks they can get away with similar pricing. Though I like the iPad keyboard slightly better than the Samsung keyboard.
