Best Buy has for AT&T Postpaid Customers: 64GB Samsung Galaxy S9 AT&T Smartphone on sale for $9.99/mo. via 30-month AT&T Next device payment plan (~$299.99 total + $30 one-time activation fee). Activation for new or existing AT&T customers on an upgrade or new/added line required (plans start at $60/mo.). Shipping is free or select free store pickup. Thanks TeddyHeisman
AT&T Next is not a wireless service contract to remain on AT&T for 30 months (your actual wireless plan costs are separate).
'AT&T Next' is what the device payment plan is named and breaks down the full ~$299.99 cost of the phone into $9.99/month for 30 months if you choose to continue paying for it that way.
However, the device may be paid off to keep/own at any time after activation once added to your account if the customer chooses, which close out the AT&T Next payment plan completely.
On the installment agreement shown while checking out, you will see a '$300 down payment' listed. This is not owed at any time ever by the customer and merely refers to the instant discount by Best Best being applied to the device's retail cost: $599.99 retail price - $300 discount (listed as a 'down payment') = $299.99 (what the customer owes in total for the phone).
Once you've paid the full $299.99 (+ $30 one-time activation fee) for the device - whether right away in your AT&T account dashboard once activated, over the full 30 month installment period, or any other time before 30 months in payments have been made - the device is yours to keep and fully paid off.

Great deal on a barely 1 year old phone at Best Buy. Picked mine up Thursday for $13.33/mo and got a $100 gift card after price matching to the new low price. You will have to pay sales tax on the full amount of the phone ($599).
