Best Buy [bestbuy.com] Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus - $350 off
This is the best bf deal on smart phones so far. better than target ,samsclub, costco gift card offer/rebate deals.
eg:Samsung Galaxy S8
sprint $16.67/mo. with 24-month
Verizon $15.41/mo. for 24 months
-----------
Samsung Galaxy S8 plus
Verizon $19.41/mo. for 24 months
Sprint $20.83/mo. with 24-month
--------------
Samsung - Galaxy Note8 64GB - Midnight Black (Verizon)
Verizon $24.41/mo. for 24 months
Sprint $25.41/mo. with 24-month

DPP installments: Device Payment Plan installments are different from 2yr contracts. Here you can payoff remaining balance anytime and take the device with you to the service provider of your choice. You can also payoff at bestbuy store if the rep allows you to do it! Verizon may stop you for 14 days until the device return policy due date. worst case scenario you will end up paying for 1 month service.

Misc Verizon Info

This deals involves an agreement to pay Verizon through a DPP, or Device Payment Plan. In short, BB makes a "down payment" on your behalf, thus lowering the total amount due, which Verizon divides into 24 equal payments (as listed in the OP). This deal does not involve "bill credits" where you pay full price over 24 payments with Verizon giving you a credit each month as long as the payments continue (the credits stops if you pay off the balance early).

You cannot buy at full retail and take advantage of the discount. You must agree to a DPP.

Once the transaction at BB is over, everything moves to Verizon. You are making monthly payments to Verizon, not BB. If you pay off the DPP balance, your obligation ends. No early termination fee, no penalty. You are free to terminate the line without cost. How long do you have to wait to pay off the DPP? For this deal, it appears to be 15 days. For a phone purchased on 11/16, the following message appears when the status of the DPP is checked online at Verizon: "Device payment buyout not available until 12/01/2017. Only a refund or exchange can be processed to change devices." However, some people have reported that they have been able to pay off the balance in-store at Verizon with cash before 15 days. If it's done within 3 days of the original sale and the line is removed from the account, it's possible the $30 activation fee will not be charged either on your first bill.

At the time of the transaction in-store, BB allows you to make a substantial down payment of your own with a BB gift card, credit card or cash (but not 100%). This further lowers your monthly DPP amount. Once the DPP is paid off, you can do whatever you want with the line and the phone, including cancel and move to another carrier.


Verizon charges a $30 activation fee for the new phone. It is not a BB charge. It will appear on your first bill after the sale. No way to avoid it, but some people have luck calling Verizon to request a waiver or bill credit for the $30. Success is hit or miss. See above for information on removing the phone from the account within the first 3 days to possibly avoid the fee altogether.


Can I combine this deal with the Verizon/Samsung 50k points deal?


In short, no. That deal expired on 11/15 (receipts can be uploaded through 11/22) and BB is explicitly excluded. More details here: Verizon/Samsung 50k Points Deal



Are these phones locked to Verizon/Sprint?

Verizon phones are unlocked out of the box. Sprint should let you unlock it once it is fully paid off.



Says you have to pay tax on the full retail price which would be another almost $80 for me on top of the prices shown above. Why?


This is not a way for Verizon or BB to rip anyone off. BB is making a "down payment" for you to lower your own out of pocket expense. Think about when you buy a car and apply a down payment and finance the rest. If your State charges tax on car sales, they charge on the full amount, not the lower amount after the down payment. If BB characterized this as a coupon or straight "sale" tax likely would not be charged. According to the DPP agreement, the price is discounted through a "down payment."


That's fine but it's not simple enough to say that the total price is $369 or whatever....it is really $450


Sprint Info

Too lazy to copy in a nice format like the Verizon info. Also, some YMMV aspects but here was my very slick situation - https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=107754819&postcount=1287

Putting this here because I had questions about Sprint which I couldn't find answers to and nobody could provide answers. Hopefully it helps someone.
