Samsung Galaxy S8 Target Pre-Order - Up to $220 in gift cards!

+11 Deal Score

http://www.target.com/c/samsung-g...ailableSam


We all know about the standard $100 gift card when pre-ordering the Galaxy S8 thru Target, and than activating it on a DPP. No problem.

I was then reading thru my confirmation email, and stumbled across the following paragraph:

Quote :
What other benefits can I receive as a REDcard guest?

When you arrive in stores and complete the activation of your new device, make sure to take advantage of these unique REDcard benefits

Complete your activation and sign up to get a $15 Target electronic Gift Card for every 3 months that you remain active under your carrier agreement. Under a 24 month agreement, this could total up to $120 in Target electronic GiftCards. For a 30 month term, your value could be up to $150 in Target Electronic GiftCards. For an 18 month term, your value could be up to $90 in Target electronic GiftCards. In order to qualify, you will be required to pay for taxes and down payment (if required by your carrier) with your REDcard at the time of your phone purchase. You will also need to share your name, email and phone number. See terms and conditions for more details.2
I was wondering if this was true and would work in conjunction with the advertised $100 gift card. I spoke with a Target Mobile rep, who admitted he was not sure. I sent him a copy of the email, and he followed up with his district manager. The district manager confirmed that yes, as long as you meet the stated requirements, you WILL receive a $15 every 3 months that the phone remains activated, thru the entire term of your DPP (18-30 months depending on carrier).

Note... in order to get the recurring gift card every 3 months, you MUST do the following:

- Preorder from Target's website.
- Pay any taxes and down payment when you pick up the phone, and pay for them on your Redcard.
- Leave the phone on a Device Payment Plan (IOW, do NOT pay it off)

I believe Sprint, Verizon and AT&T are all doing 24-month DPPs, which means $120 in gift cards for all 3 carriers (as long as you stay on the DPP for the full term).

$220 in gift cards from Target seems to be the best deal out there.

2016 thanks giving had setup stage for how DPP deals should look like.

This may be a good deal for some who intend to stay with carrier for the long long long term of 24 months, but most here are looking for a one time large discount on a high end device that is not tied with any contracts.

It is the extremely rare deal that looks like that any more.

Where do you see this OP? I don't have this in my email.

And does anyone know if the 5% Redcard discount will work on a downpayment as well? If so, I plan on putting down $824.99 which is the highest amount for AT&T Next 24 month contract.

My Target would not let you put that much down. It is at the discretion of the Target rep how much to allow.

On an $850 device, the most would be $500. The reps can limit how much to let you put down. I would try for $800 and see what they say. If they say no, then see what the maximum is that they will do.

I put down $650. I think technically the system allows you to keep a minimum of $0.24 ($0.01 x 24) on the 24-month installment plan, but it depends on the Target rep. Some rep can be an ass and make up non-existent rules. For the iPhone 7 deal, the first rep did not allow me to do down payment, then the rep next to him overheard and said I could Big Grin
