Groupon is selling the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ for $150 off

Groupon isn’t exactly where you’d expect to find a flagship smartphone, but the deals site has a staggering discount on Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8+. The unlocked US models (which support all major networks) are available for $150 off in both sizes. That brings the S8 down to $574.99 and the S8+ to just $674.99. There’s no fine print; you don’t have to trade in your phone. Those are just the prices. And they’re very good prices — the best I’ve seen if you missed out on Samsung’s guaranteed $200 off trade-in offer.
 It’s not entirely obvious who the seller is, though these are likely coming directly from Samsung itself. The “About Samsung” section at the bottom of the Groupon page is about as close as we get to establishing the source here. You get the full 1-year factory warranty, and returns are free if you decide that Samsung’s latest isn’t quite right for you — or if you later decide to wait for the Note 8. But the Note is going to cost you more than the S8. And probably way more than the S8 at these prices.


If you don’t care about getting the unlocked version, Best Buy currently discounts the carrier models by $200 if you pay in monthly installments. That type of savings can make it worth living with the Bixby button. The sale supposedly runs for another five days, but who knows whether the phones will remain available for that long.
