Sounds like a decent deal. Appears not valid for t-mobile; only valid on Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T.

I'd go for a reduced price S7 instead.

Unless the price is $550 or lower, it's not really that great of a deal.

Free $100 GC/charger promo doesn't seem to apply for unlocked variant, only carrier locked variants.

It would've been great if Best Buy would apply the discount on the sale.

Keep in mind if you buy the S8/S8+ you can purchase the new Samsung 360 camera for only $49. It's retailing for $220-300. So you could sell it and consider that an overall discount on the phone. I pulled the trigger on this deal over the weekend and they gave me the $100 gift card in store instead of making me wait for the emailed version 48 hours later.

Anyone able to successfully combine this with the AT&T $200 trade in promotion if you bought the S8/S8+ from best buy?

The real kicker here appears to be if you sign up for a new line of service with Sprint. Essentially getting the phone for free.

Free $430 Best Buy Gift Card
with Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ on a new line of activation with Sprint Lease.
Terms and conditions apply.

Save $350
on a Galaxy S8 or S8+ when you buy and activate on a new line.
Terms and conditions apply.

Gift card is with a lease, which is a leasing option, whereas the discount is with the dpp or installment version. Can't combine the two promotions.

I called BB earlier and you get both. You get $450 and then you pay $16.66 per month for 24 months. Which means you get the phone essentially for free.

I will be adding a new line (I have 4 lines on my account now) and I play "hand me down" with the phones to my family members, so unless I'm missing something, works nicely.

Also I'm pretty sure my $10 a month Sprint loyalty credit will apply as well.

If it works, it is a great deal. However the gift card is not coming up when you do it online. Let me know, how it goes in store. I will also jump on this, if it works.

Sure will let you know, going to do it today. When I called they said the BB gift card doesn't show up online but you'll get an email after you actually activate the phone.

It's important to note that this deal you also get a free Samsung wireless charger and you can get the Samsung 360 camera for $50 too.

Pretty sweet all together IMO by adding a line. Even if you pay off the installment plan ($400) you walk away with:

- Wireless charger
- 360 camera for $50
- $450 BB gift certificate

I know you are experienced in this, so you should be ok, but don't sign a lease by mistake.

OK reporting back.

So the store agreed it was confusing and I told them that I made the trip in after calling BB and they vouched. They said its supposed to be one or the other (so either gift card with lease or $400 installment plan). The store manager gave me a $200 store credit instead. So walked away with the following:

$400 installment plan on phone for 24 months (16.66 per month)
wireless charger
$200 store credit

I will then also fill out form online to get samsung 360 camera for $50.

Since I needed to get a new line of service for my family anyway, this is still a good deal in my position. Not as good as for others, but still best for my option I can find.
