Samsung S8 - $470 - S8+ $563 + tax AR and EDU Discount

$470.00
+24 Deal Score
38,132 Views
I was bummed out that I missed the Samsung direct BOGO for the S8 phones but found a way to get a pretty reasonable discount on the S8 and S8+. This is my first post so I hope I'm doing it right!

First: Sign up for a UNiDays account [myunidays.com]for up to 20% Off @ Samsung.com EDU Email account required

Second: Goto Samsung.com [samsung.com] and follow the link to buy an S8 and S8+ with a $200 Visa gift card. Valid 6/30 - 7/15

Choose the Carrier Unlocked models for the lowest prices:
S8 - $670.62 - $54.38 discount
S8+ - $763.12 - $61.87 discount

Prices Before Rebate.

Carrier specific phones are $10-$25 more depending on carrier.

Screen grab of S8+ I picked up below. Most phones are on backorder with Carrier unlocked phones on a 2 week backorder. Frown

Maybe it's all the people scammed by Samsung.com and it's promos over the years

Anyone have a screenshot from the $100 off plus trade in deal from last week, Samsung won't honor it for me? Thanks so much for the help.

Great first post. Two potential issues that may come up are underlined/bolded:

"*Limited Time Offer. While Supplies Last. Terms apply.
Must be 18+ & 50 US/DC res. From 1:00 PM ET on 6/30/17 – 7/15/17 ("Purchase Period"), purchase a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ phone with Samsung Financing or outright purchase at full retail price ("Qualifying Purchase") on Samsung.com or Shop Samsung app ("App"). Subject to verification of Qualifying Purchase, receive a $200 OmniCard Visa® Reward Virtual Account ("Reward"), while supplies last. When making the Qualifying Purchase on Samsung.com, you must add the Reward at check-out or you will not be eligible to claim the Reward after completing the Qualifying Purchase transaction. Rewards will be emailed 2-3 weeks after Qualifying Purchase has shipped. No more than 30,000 Rewards will be available. In the event that Rewards are unavailable for any reason, including a force majeure event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may choose to give Participants the option to receive a $200 Reward eCertificate as a substitute. Reward eCertificates are valid only at www.Samsung.com or in the App for use towards a new eligible purchase, and are valid 6/30/17 through 9/15/17. Rewards subject to availability and are non-transferrable. Limit 1 Reward per Qualifying Purchase. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Offer subject to additional terms here. The OmniCard Visa Reward Virtual Account is issued by MetaBank®, pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc. The Visa Reward Virtual Account is accepted online and for mail/telephone order transactions everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted. No Cash access."

Terms require financed or full retail price. Student discount may negate that. The second concern if I'm interpreting correctly is they may give store credit instead of a cash card?

So time will tell on whether the rebate will be approved.

Thank you for pointing out the potential problems with the $200 "Visa Reward Virtual Account"......whatever that means. I almost bought this, but now am a bit concerned about buying from Samsung.com. I have a friend who swears he will never buy from Samsung.com again because of problems with a promo & their refusal to honor what they said they would. It's a shame, this would be a good deal.

Also, just in case, take a video of your phone, powering on and into setup mode, and photos of the physical condition of the phone.

It is one of the most popular phones out there. Samsung is making a ton by discounting its flagships.

I did this deal for the S8+ and the virtual gift reward (or however they word it) does show on the receipt. Given that the Visa reward can be used anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, I plan to go straight to Amazon and just order a Visa gift card or just have it applied to my account so I don't have to worry about possible expiration dates. Their wording definitely vague so I'm not taking any chance
