I received a 50% coupon from Samsung Device Insight Program:

Kind of on the fence for this deal because of 1 year Participant Agreement.

What do you suggest? Thanks!

I am on insights with the Note 9. Honestly, I probably would not do it again. I personally dont't like being basically under a contract for a year. Just my 2 cents.

i'm also on the note 9 program as well, and i don't regret it at all. i mean, c'mon, you had that phone for around $500, half the price of msrp, and you can probably sell it for around $350-$400 after the "contract" ends, so you've had a flagship phone for a whole year for around $150.

as to the OP, i don't think it's worth it, not for a phone that's only worth $350 msrp.

Honestly, I wouldn't. Understandable they bumped the flagship phones to 50% off. But one year of my data is worth more than $150. Thanks but no thanks!

When the phone was free it would have been worth but since you can typically find Samsung phones 40%-50% off within a few months it isn't worth it anymore.

Thanks for your suggestion.

I don't think this is a hot deal as well. However, this is the first invite Samsung sent me and I'm concern about I maybe removed from the program if I don't participate this one.

Wish the invite was for S10.....

I agree this .. typically these days.. Galaxy phone costs goes down quickly.. S10 costs went down rapidly..

I guess they are really cheaping out. I got my Note 8 for free. I traded it in for $550 off my unlocked S10+ with free Galaxy buds.

I'm two months in on my S10+ and I already feel this way. Started with software updates being nonexistent. Thinking OnePlus 7 Pro.

Can you just let it sit for a year? I have a second line that I don't use much (sprint).

Hey man, how does this insight program work? I'm super frugal and would love an A50 at $150. I'm also looking at the A70. Is this program invite only? What is involved?
