Deal Details

Last Edited by TattyBear November 21, 2015 at 05:23 PM
Costco is giving a $250 GC with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge(+)/Note 5 on EIP. This isn't a deal for the Verizon/Sprint/AT&T versions, which have came with $300 (or more) before, but this is the best deal for the T-Mobile version so far.

For a 32gb Note 5:
$700 + tax
- $250 GC
- $50 Samsung pay rebate [samsungpromotions.com]
This page [samsungpromotions.com] says that the "$299" in free gifts bundle has been extended to 12/13, but the T&C and paperwork haven't been updated yet.
And if you've done a Samsung test drive [samsungpromotions.com] before, then you get $100 in Google play credit, and if you trade in a phone, an additional $100 cash. Does anyone know if Costco takes trade ins?

Summary of the existing Samsung and Costco promotions going on right now, 11/21/2015.

Regular S6 as an example.

Black Galaxy S6 32GB Phone + 5200 mAh lipstick battery = $579 + tax

0 - Brand new offer from Samsung, potentially better than $50 back if you're indeed shopping for something at Samsung. Get up to $100 off any samsung.com purchase when you activate Samsung Pay*, register a compatible card and submit online claim between 11/23/15 - 11/30/15 [samsungpromotions.com]. -- Thanks to mayurr on this SD thread.

1 - Costco $250 gift card. Valid for in store [costco.com] purchases. Expires 11/30. Tmobile requires EIP. Other carriers may have other conditions. ($579 - $250 = $329 + tax)

2 - Samsung Pay $50 rebate for Tmobile. Need to activate a credit card with SamsungPay and register here [samsungpromotions.com] before 12/31. Not all cards will work. Not every attempt to make your card work is successful (they have software issues).($329 - $50 = $279 + tax)
Edit by Zroid -
This point is incorrect. Following is from site https://samsungpromotions.com/SamsungPayTMO. So I believe you have till Dec 31 to activate Samsung pay.

Between 11/18/15 and 12/31/15, on your T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, or Samsung Galaxy Note5 (any color, any memory level), activate the Samsung Pay app, register at least 1 qualifying credit or debit card with the app, and follow the instructions to submit Offer Claim Form.
End Edit.

Right the info got corrected. The one expiring on 11/22 is carrier agnostic and located on this link https://samsungpromotions.com/samsungpayoffer if anyone needs to rush.

3 - Samsung Gifts of the Season. Free overpriced free crap free here free [samsungpromotions.com]. Expires 12/13.

4 - Samsung Test Drive $100 of Google Play Money. If you did the test drive (or are still doing?), you may be eligible to $100 of Monopoly Money ( Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) ) when you beg for it here [samsungpromotions.com]. If you changed your User Agent to get into the trial, Samsung has an out to not give you the Play Money. Unlikely that they will refuse, but there is a possibility.

I guess this is for new customer or adding a new line only, not for current customer upgrade.

Tangent topic, but related:

Can you help me understand something regarding Costco's Verizon plans --

If I sign up at Costco for -- say, a Verizon plan/phone -- is it similar to Best Buy where there is a $40 Line Access fee? Or is it similar to the Verizon website where its only a $20 Line Access fee? Best Buy has Note 5 for $45, but with the Line Access fee being higher, it doesn't seem to make sense, compared to going through Verizon online directly, getting a $300 discount for a trade in phone.

Are we getting less for more if we shop for Verizon at Costco, similar to Best Buy?

How about T-Mobile? Is the cost worth it to go through these retailers, or ultimately is the online carrier better? They make it as confusing as possible.

Technically it's a MIR card, so how would Samsung know?

So with Verizon, the line access fee is higher if you're buying a SUBSIDIZED phone on a 2yr contract, regardless of where you're getting it. If you're getting a flagship phone for $1 or $45 or whatever, it's subsidized. If you pay full price (or do a EIP), then the line access fee is $20. You'll have to do the math to see if it's better over 2 years to do a contract or EIP + trade in deal.

T-Mobile doesn't have contracts, so regardless of where you buy your phone, your plan cost is the same. So you can just buy from wherever has the cheapest phone.

My point is that Samsung does not know whether you got a GC with this deal or not, because the GC comes as a mail in rebate. The GC is not on your receipt like it was with the Sams deal.

Too bad the newer Galaxy Note and S6 have microSD card slot and removable battery.
