Cyber Monday 2018 Galaxy sales: Free Galaxy S9, plus 50-inch TV and Galaxy Watch gifts

The Cyber Monday deals have been kind to Galaxy phones. Although some of the best Black Friday promotions dried up, there are still good discounts on top phones like the Note 9 and Galaxy S9, as well as last year’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus — both unlocked varieties and US carrier models. There are free gifts as well, including a Galaxy Watch and a daily surprise from AT&T. Promotions range from bill credit-style discounts to a redeemable coupon. This is one of the best times to buy a new phone, so let’s begin. 

Also see Cyber Monday sales for the Pixel 3, the iPhone XS and XR, and deals for the excellent OnePlus 6T and top LG models.

T-Mobile: Free Galaxy Watch when you join

David Carnoy/CNET

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch is a worthy alternative to the Apple Watch, especially if you’re already a Samsung user. For T-Mobile customers who activate a new account with a voice line and add a data line, the carrier will throw in the smartwatch for free. The discount comes in the form of 24 months of monthly bill credits. Fine print here.

The offer is available now.

AT&T: Buy a Galaxy S9, get one free

Josh Miller/CNET

This is a classic BOGO offer for two Galaxy S9 phones, which means that it’s yours when you jump through hoops of fire while blindfolded to meet certain requirements. OK, so it’s not really that bad, but you should make sure you’re aware of the restrictions. For example, you need to buy both phones through AT&T Next’s installment plan, and the offer requires you to activate a new line of service. You’ll be reimbursed for the price of the second phone over 30 months of bill credits, which begin within three bills.

The offer is available now.

T-Mobile carrier deals: Free Galaxy phones, or up to $750 off

Josh Miller/CNET

T-Mobile’s Black Friday deal starts Nov. 16, and… it’s a little complicated, so bear with me. You can get a phone either for free (chosen among select models), or you get up to $750 off the phone’s full price. That’s if you trade in an older phone and add an additional line of service to your plan. So, if you already have one phone line, this deal applies if you add a second line. If you currently pay for two phone lines, it works when you add a third.

Here’s how the phones shake out:
Free: Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8
Up to $750 off: Note 9, Galaxy S9 Plus, Galaxy S8 Active

Here’s how the bill credits work: If your phone of choice is in the $750-off camp (again, chosen from select models), you’ll receive your trade-in value plus a $500 credit spread out in 24 bill credits. So, if you buy a $900 phone, you’ll get up to $250 off in trade-in value and $500 in bill credits over a two-year spread.

The offer is available now.

Angela Lang/CNET

This deal shaves $200 off the Note 9 (128GB), Galaxy S9 (64GB), S9 Plus (64GB) and Note 8 when you buy them unlocked via Samsung’s website. That means you’ll spend $800 for the Note 9, $520 for the S9 and $640 for the S9 Plus. That doesn’t count additional savings you might receive if you trade in an old phone as well — Samsung will give you up to $300 when you buy either phone.

Best Buy: Save $300 to $325 on Galaxy S9, Note 9, S9 Plus

Josh Miller/CNET

T-Mobile customers won’t be able to benefit from any of Best Buy’s offers, but $300 off any of Samsung’s premium phones is a pretty good deal. The deal requires a qualified activation with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint, and exact pricing on the phones appear to vary based on the carrier. For example, you can get a gold Galaxy S9 for $325 off when you activate with Sprint.

The promotion is live now.
