Save the Galaxy — spend less money.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are now available to purchase in many countries around the world. Carriers are falling over themselves to give you a good deal on an early purchase of Samsung's latest phones. Here are all of the latest deals from the top carriers and retailers.
You can pick up the Galaxy S9 for $33.33 per month and the Galaxy S9+ for $38.75 per month. Both of those are the prices over 24 months, meaning you'll ultimately pay $799 for the S9 and $929 for the S9+. Ouch. To help reduce those costs, you can trade-in an eligible phone on Verizon and take up to 50% off. The exact details are as follows:
- Galaxy S9 for $16.66/month: Trade in iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus, Pixel 2/2 XL, Pixel/Pixel XL, LG V30, LG G6, Moto Z2 Force, Moto Z Force, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy S7 Edge.
- Galaxy S9+ for $19.37/month: Trade in iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone 7/7 Plus, Pixel 2/2 XL, LG V30, Moto Z2 Force, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8/S8+.
- Galaxy S9 for $21.66/month: Trade in iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 6S, HTC 10, LG V20, LG G5, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Droid, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5.
- Galaxy S9+ for $25.18: Trade in iPhone 6S/6S Plus, Pixel/Pixel XL, HTC 10, LG V20, LG G6, Moto Z Force, Moto Z2 Play, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 5.

AT&T has upped the price for the phones beyond what you'd pay unlocked or from T-Mobile. The carrier is advertising $26.34 per month for the GS9 and $30.50 per month for the S9+ – but that's over 30 months, so the full price comes out to $790 and $915, respectively.
For a limited time, though, AT&T is offering 50% off the S9 or $395 off the larger S9+. You must purchase the phones on AT&T Next, start a new line of service, and sign up for a DirecTV or Internet plan.
Those are a lot of hoops you need to jump through, but if you were already planning on getting the S9 or S9+ on AT&T, you might as well look into this.
T-Mobile is matching the unlocked pricing of $720 for the Galaxy S9 and $840 for the S9+. T-Mobile says that the S9 series plugs into its new 600MHz spectrum, which offers more coverage in rural areas.
There aren't any sales on the S9 series right now for regular consumers, but if you qualify for T-Mobile's military/veteran pricing, you can get 50% off.
On Sprint you'll pay $792 for Galaxy S9 and $912 for Galaxy S9+, but they're also available through Sprint's Galaxy Forever lease program, which allows you to upgrade to the newest Galaxy after 12 months, for $33 per month for S9 and $38 per month for the S9+.
There aren't any deals for buying the S9 series outright from Sprint, but you can save quite a bit with the Galaxy Forever program right now.
Instead of $33/month for the S9 and $38/month for the S9+, you'll spend just $16.50/month for the S9 and $21.50/month for the S9 Plus. No trade-in is required for this promotion, but you will need to add a new line of service.
Once the order is made, you should see your monthly bill credit applied within two billing cycles.
Amazon matches every other retailer with U.S. unlocked pricing at $719 and $839, with all three colors of both sizes of the phone available. When shopping at Amazon, be sure to get the proper U.S. model rather than the international models that can also be found from third-party sellers — buying an international model may be a tad cheaper in some cases, but won't come with a warranty.
You can buy the carrier versions of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, plus the unlocked version (we recommend that one) at their usual prices. Best Buy runs its own trade-in program, and also typically matches whatever the carriers are offering directly in terms of incentives. Best Buy also offers 24-month no-interest financing if you have a Best Buy credit card.
If you prefer buying your phones directly from the manufacturer (consider it!), without all the bloatware and potential SIM locking, Samsung is offering both the S9 and S9+ unlocked. In the U.S., you'll pay $719 for the Galaxy S9 and $839 for the Galaxy S9+, but both are available with Samsung's financing program if you'd prefer to pay over several months.
Samsung also sells the carrier variants of both phones, matching the pricing you'd find from the carriers but not necessarily any of the other incentives above and beyond that.
One big advantage Samsung has over everyone else is that it's the exclusive place you can buy the 128GB and 256GB configurations for the S9 and S9+. You'll pay $50 more per each storage upgrade, resulting in the following pricing:
- Samsung Galaxy S9 w/ 128GB – $769.99
- Samsung Galaxy S9 w/ 256GB – $819.99
- Samsung Galaxy S9+ w/ 128GB – $889.99
- Samsung Galaxy S9+ w/ 256GB – $939.99
Samsung's got a couple killer deals right now, one of which gets you an instant $350 trade-in credit when you purchase an S9 through the Samsung Upgrade Program. Alternatively, buying the S9 or S9+ will give you the option of getting a free pair of Gear IconX (2018) earbuds or buying the Gear S3 for just $99.
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Rogers has the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The amount you pay depends on which plan type you choose, with the pricing working out as follows:

If there's a Rogers store near you, you can grab the Galaxy S9 for $0 (that's right, $0) when you purchase it on one of the carrier's Share Everything plans after completing an eligible trade-in.
For online shoppers, Rogers is giving out a coupon for 15% off select accessories when you actvate a device from its website and waiving its $30/line Connection Fee.
In addition to Rogers, you can also get the Galaxy S9 through TELUS. The regular S9 costs between $250 and $450 upfront depending on which plan you choose, with the same holding true for the S9+ that varies at $380 and $580.
Bell is selling the S9 and S9+ for $250 on a 2-year term with an $80/month contract, or $450 for a $70/month contract. It's $1019 outright. The S9+ costs $380 and $580 in the same configurations. As with all other carriers, the phone comes in either grey or purple.
If you're interested in the smaller Galaxy S9, Bell's letting you pick it up for $0 if you trade-in an eligible device and sign up for a 2-year Premium Plus plan with data.
For this offer, you'll only be able to redeem it at one of Bell's physical retail stores.
In Canada, Samsung is selling the Galaxy S9 and S9+ unlocked, starting at $960 for the smaller phone and moving up to $1100 for the larger one. Both phones remain unlocked once you put a SIM card into them, but they download (and keep) the carrier details from the first SIM that was inserted into them, much like their carrier counterparts. In Canada, Samsung is offering only the Lilac Purple and Titanium Grey models.
O2 in the United Kingdom is selling the Galaxy S9 for £49.99 upfront and then £56 per month for 24 months. If you want the larger and more impressive Galaxy S9+, you'll pay the same £49.99 upfront cost but a more expensive £61/month charge.
Thanks to the O2 Recycle program, you can score £100 off the purchase of either phone when trading in the Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge, or S6 edge+.
Vodafone is also offering the Galaxy S9 series in the UK, and for the regular S9 you'll pay £29 upfront followed by £59/month. If you want to step up to the Galaxy S9+, you'll pay a bit more ay £49 upfront and then £69 per month.
