In anticipation of the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, some carriers and retailers are trying to clear out their inventories by offering generous discounts on the soon-to-be previous-generation flagships, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
It’s the case of AT&T’s prepaid branch, Cricket Wireless which has a pretty sweet promotion going on. Customers looking to switch to Cricket can get a 50% discount on the Galaxy S8.
You’ll have to bring your number to the carrier and sign up with a data plan that costs $30/month or more. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to purchase Samsung’s 2017 flagship for $349.99.
Current Cricket Wireless subscribers adding a new number or looking to upgrade their phone will pay $699.99.
There are a few other conditions you need to take into consideration before taking advantage of the deal. For example, the first month’s service charge and sales tax are due at the time of the purchase. Also, if you buy the Galaxy S8 from a brick and mortar Cricket store, you will have to pay up to $25 for an activation fee.
Even so, the deal sounds pretty great. Unless you’re looking to get the Galaxy S9. In that case, don’t forget to tune in on February 25 to learn more about Samsung’s new flagship.
