Now that Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9+ are official, American carriers are looking forward to triggering their launch deals ahead of official March 2nd pre-orders and March 16 launch. With the trade-in deals already been revealed, which is a common factor this time around. Here’s how much you can save?
Looking forward to purchasing a Galaxy S9 or even better, a Galaxy S9+? Samsung, on the other hand, has a very good financial incentive to make a switch. If you trade in an eligible device, you can get a significant price slash which arguably tips the scales in favor of upgrading.
Then the Galaxy S9 US pre-orders purely focus on trade-in deals. Carriers would really, really be happy to make you an upgrade. You can even get up to $350 cashback for your old phone, too.
Try it! T-Mobile, for instance, is promising $360 off the price of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ if you turn in an eligible phone (typically a high-end Apple. LG or Samsung phone from the past couple of years). Verizon, meanwhile, is offering between $100 to $350 in credit if you hand over a qualified phone from Apple, Google, HTC, LG, Motorola or Samsung.
Compact’s relatively new Xfinity Mobile is getting in on the action as well, with promises of at least $200 and as much as $450.
Alongside the trade-in deals, there are other promos. As you might expect from, Verizon is offering $100 off a Gear 3 smartwatch if you activate it on a 2-year plan, and promises a $150 prepaid card if you’re switching networks. Xfinity Mobile is also offering a $250 prepaid card to anyone who buys Samsung phone and opens a new line between now and March 2nd.

Regardless of who you choose, this is the reasons why providers are encouraging trade-ins – as with the S8, the S9 isn’t cheap, though. AT&T is offering the S9 and S9+ for a respective $26.34 per month and $30.50 per month on a 30-month Next plan, which works out to $790 and $915. While Verizon is pitching the S9 duo on 24-month plans, with the S9 going for $33.33 per month ($800 outright) and its bigger variant, the S9+ for $38.74 per month ($930). Sprint is also promising very similar deals at $33 and $38 per month ($792 / $912) with two years of payments in EMI.
T-Mobile may offer the sweetest deal of the major carriers so far. You can buy the S9 for $30 per month on a 24-month installment plan ($720 outright), and the S9+ for a similar monthly rate if you pay $120 up front ($840 full price). Whereas Xfinity Mobile hasn’t revealed its prices as of this writing. Those who want an unlocked model can skip all this fuss. Much like on T-Mobile, you can buy the network-independent S9 for $720 upfront or $30 per month for 24 months, and S9+ for $840 outright or $35 per month.
We already mentioned, the Galaxy S9 will cost $719.99 unlocked for the 64GB versions, and the unlocked Galaxy S9+ at $839.99. You can decide which plans are right to chose. First of all, pre-order now!
