Full Pricing Breakdown For Samsung Sale, Galaxy Note II On Sale This Weekend As Well

Some good news for all you Galaxy Note II fans out there soured by this mornings news that showed the Note II as not a part of the special Samsung sale this weekend. The good news is that the Note II IS on sale this weekend, just not for free. During the course of November 16th and 17th, the Note II will sell for $299.99, with a $200 mail-in rebate for a net cost of $99.99 and 20 monthly payments of $20 for Value Plan customers.

Classic Plan customers are looking at a slightly different deal with a $499.99 out of pocket payment, with a $300 mail-in rebate bringing your net cost to $199.99. It’s an interesting way to go about the deal, and I’m not sure how many will jump at laying out $500, but if you really want the Note II, this might be a good way to get it on the cheap. Of course cheap is relative when you have to wait for the rebate to come back after laying out the cash.

The rest of the images show a complete pricing breakdown for all the Samsung smartphones and tablets on sale this weekend. Classic Plans are on top, Value Plan pricing is below.

    I have to agree that T-Mobile has officially launched the most confusing price structure ever with this sale. Convenient that they raised the price of almost all handsets by $50 last week right before this sale. Going to be interesting to see how customers respond.

      the sale would be a success, just like it has pretty much every time they had it

    I agree that a $300 rebate is pretty rough, but I’m in. Fortunately, we are able to borrow the money from my father-in-law for 3 S3s, and we will pay him back after we get the rebates. Without that, we couldn’t do it. We are switching from Verizon and I look forward to being on TMobile again. They are the best carrier I have ever been on. I’m not buying from Sam’s Club for 96cents because even if I camp all night there is no guarantee that we will be able to get 3 of them. And- dealing directly with the Tmo store they will immediately apply my husband’s 15% military discount and we get free activation.

    I do have a question- Is it possible to buy 3 S3s on the classic family plan, wait for the mail in rebate, and then pay $200 per line to migrate to the value family plan? If that is the case, then it is like getting the S3 for $200 each and not having the monthly $20 installment payment per phone (that add up to $400 in the long run) and getting a super cheap bill. I’m not looking to cheat, but it is my understanding that is within their terms, and makes the most financial sense for us. Thoughts?

    • xmiro

      Sure you can but moving to Value would stick you with a new contract.

    When I bought my note 2 for $649.99 launch day I had to exchange and I noticed the price went up to$50 any info on why that changed

    • http://profiles.google.com/gallimichael Michael G. Galli

      Yes. Starting last Wednesday ALL Value Plans & Classic will require a MIR in addition to prices going UP. This is meant as a way to deter people from returning the device & cancelling service, reducing Churn.

    I’m laughing at some comments on here. What is so confusing about what can be understood? Are we the consumer so dumb and sheep that we need to “simplify”…and wow the average consumer DOES NOT follow forums or sites like this, so I’m trying to justify why people are so confused……………where is the intelligence at, yea the pricing module may not work in your personal favor or the 8gb nexus 4 might not work for you but jeez its not hard to believe it works for someone else. If you can’t rationalize carrier pricing, contracts, YOUR MONEY then maybe you shouldn’t do any business let alone have a cell phone it’s NOT that serious, so fed up with the internet diplomacy and unnecessary opinions about another’s CHOICE

    • Guest

      If many people are confused, there may be a reason for that. To turn your own comment on it’s head, you’re in the position of being inflammatory here and yet you’re in the minority passing judgment on others. I don’t understand the part about being upset with the internet community? What does that matter to your argument then?

      I agree with you though that not everyone needs dumbed down. BUT, I feel this way because I’ve worked wireless sales quite a number of years, which means I’m not entirely sensitive to the “average” customer. I’m used to the tacky bullshit that carriers put us customers through, just like cable providers and all the other service providers do similar things. I’ve taken time to understand some of T-mobile’s pricing models, but I don’t have to agree with them and what the company is trying to put out.

      This is some of the more confusing stuff I’ve seen out there that to me just
      makes it harder for people to make earnest purchasing decisions. Even answering something as simple as “Will this save me money in the long-run?” frustrates people because T-mobile’s sales models are ALWAYS changing. It’s nothing new in the industry though. AT&T does the same things, but my own opinion is T-mobile has to make money somehow and to me, and they’ve found a way to hide some costs in the long-term… I don’t like the inflated phone prices for example.

      Discussions aside, the internet is not always a pretty place to be so it’s not necessary to point it out for the 999th time what a toxic place it can be… we all know. I haven’t read all the comments, but it’s not necessary to be inflammatory and call people idiots just because you do not agree with them. It’s not skin off your back that somebody thinks differently than you, so just let it go.

  • UMICH

    Well that sucks! I bought my Galaxy Note II about 11 days ago. I paid $400! Now it’s FREE!!!!!!!!!!

    • lollllll

      free?

  • mardi

    I got My note2 last week from Best Buy, running a special of 25% off total was 270.0 with tax and 2 day shipping

  • mike larry

    so if i want to get a S3 on a value plan 500min + text + unlim plus 2GB, this plan will NOT qualify ? it has to UNLIMITED TALK + TEXT ? also how much would I pay for the S3 upfront on value plan ? do we also get a MIR ?

    • xmiro

      to get the rebate you need unlimited talk and text on Value or Classic.
      How much you’ll pay for an S3 upfront on Value is in the 2nd screenshot

      $299.99+sales tax out of pocket minus $200 rebate in 4-8 weeks. And $20 a month for 20 months

  • tech916

    Buy a Nexus 4 for $299 from Google and be done with it no contract.

    • xmiro

      and be on a Value plan and save a heap tons of moneys, most of the time

  • operator7

    Does anyone know if the 32gb or 64gb models will be coming to T-Mobile USA? If not, will the GT-N7105 (international version) work on T-Mobile USA?

    • ceegii63

      no on 32/64gb and no on international version only having ATT bands no 1700AWS and no LTE

    • thepanttherlady

      I believe the international version is the N7100 and the US version is the N7105 but see below for the answer to your question. :)

  • GalvestonOG

    Ok, so I want the NOTE 2. Will it be included, as the screen shot indicates, or not? $99 would be great, if it’s true. I just called 611 and was told that, for my upgrade, the NOTE 2 pricing would be $499 at checkout and a $300 rebate. Effectively $199 total price. How reliable is this screen shot?

    Nishika at my local store told me that I would pay &299 up front, get $200 rebate, and then told me that I would be paying $20 a month to pay for the REST of the phone. she finally told me that I would be paying $650 total for the phone despite my 2 year commitment. WTF?!

    • thepanttherlady

      What plan do you have, Classic or Value? Both scenarios you describe above cover each plan and you can only have it one way.

      • GalvestonOG

        Ok, so in the end though (at the end of 2 years). Which one would end up costing less? I just signed up for classic yesterday. Maybe I can change it if I call soon.1

        • thepanttherlady

          The cost of the phone itself will be less on the Classic plan; however, Classic plan rates are higher than the Value plan.

          I suggest you go into a T-Mobile location and have a rep go over both plans with you so you can compare and decide which works best for you.

          Keep in mind that if you switch to a Value plan, you will NOT be allowed to go back to the Classic plan.

        • GalvestonOG

          Thanks for the insight panthlerlady!

    • xmiro

      the screenshots above are what’s the right amount, really simple:

      On Classic plan you’ll pay $499.99+tax out of pocket and get a $300 rebate in about 4-8 weeks with your total being about $229.9894 out of pocket depending on your local sales taxes, mine is 6%.

      On a Value plan you’ll pay $299.99+tax out of pocket and get a $200 rebate in about 4-8 weeks and pay $20 a month for 20 months on top of your voice/text/data charges bring your out of pocket to $117.9894

    • galvestonog

      Ok, I get it. Thanks for the clarification!

  • dtownjodi

    Coming from Sprint this deal looks awesome! Their unlimited value plan plus $20 for the phone is still the same monthly price as Sprint. The pricing doesn’t look confusing to me at all. But y’all do have me worried now about collecting that rebate check. They better not be shady about it.

    • xmiro

      they aren’t, i’ve had to use T-Mobile rebates twice and had no problems. Just follow the instructions

  • independentmami89

    Is this deal for all tmobile or certain 3rd party tmobiles?

  • jim hoch

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to order online without paying CA tax? I hate to pay tax on the rebate amount.

    • thepanttherlady

      Try Craigslist. Walmart (of they have the phone you want) only charged tax on the sale amount.

  • unknown

    I just called CS and was told that I’d pay a total of 349 out of pocket for the Note II

  • David

    So is this in-store only or should we expect to see this live on the website in a few hours? Does Tmobile usually do web and store sales together?

  • Androidpheen

    I think this sale only applies to new customers. I am eligible for best plan pricing and I cannot get the discounts for this phone. I looked at the mail in rebate requirement and it only stipulates new costumers, it has no upgrade option. I went into my account and tried doing the upgrade and it only showed a 200 dollar instant discount.

  • viv

    i dont understand you people talking about upgrades. i switched to the value plan in sept. before that i had fave 5 and my upgrade was gone..like didnt show on the site. every time i would try to add a new phone to check the price…it was full price..no discount(fave 5 plan,jan would be end of 2 yr agreement) last upgrage i got from them was a free G2,anyone remember that? lol. had upgrade pricing show for nov,changed to july..,then completely disappear about a wk before i qualified in july to never show again. call to ask, they didnt know what i was talkin about,lol .i have a nexus from google play now…but how are you older customers getting upgrades? when i was on an even older plan than,EM /EMP+ and they took mine away? please, no one explain to me im on value and dont get a upgrade. i switched to value and went with nexus cause tmob pretended like my upgrade pricing days were over..full phone price WAS my only option

  • Swag

    What’s so confusing? A least Tmo offers options to its customers! Go to a vzw store and ask for the unsubsidized option. Exactly. Value plans do not require data. Move your plan to the plan you want after you receive the rebates. How can someone complain about this? You are getting top tier handsets for less than what they are worth (speaking specifically about value)

  • http://tmonews.com David

    Dude, enough, final warning. Robert, you sound like the bigger fool here constantly ridiculing everyone. Last warning.

  • http://tmonews.com David

    And you make it difficult for people to want to comment. If people worried about finances degrades the quality of my blog, than the world itself has a problem. Trolls, like yourself degrade the quality of the blog. People who have nothing better to do than laugh at the supposed misfortune of others (see trolls) degrade the quality of the blog. Thanks for playing.

  • loueradun

    Robert, most of us are on here because we are trying to be frugal with our cell phone purchases and take advantage of good sales/deals whenever possible. If money is no problem for you, there is no need to be here, just buy whatever phone you like whenever you feel like buying a new phone. No need to poke fun at those who aren’t as well off.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    Why would you want to waste time on a site where nobody really likes you?

  • thepanttherlady

    For someone who doesn’t find it a necessity to post on this blog you sure don’t stop.

  • AndroidProfit

    I NEVER have ONCE said I was rich or can afford any phone! I CANT AFFORD the Note 2 right now! It’s NO BIG DEAL! I don’t turn around and cry about how it’s tmobiles fault.

  • http://tmonews.com David

    Robert, you’re done. Thanks, but you’re comments will now require my approval before being posted. You’ve once again proven that you are the ultimate troll.

  • loueradun

    Honestly there is a lot about mail in rebates to cry about. I was denied a $250 rebate last time I upgraded, after verifying with 2 reps that I qualified just to make sure! If I am going to put down $500 for a phone, T-Mobile needs to drop some more info on the rebate qualifications, as their reps usually don’t even know whats going on. The rebates used to be $50, then $100, then $150, now were up to $300 MIR… Everyone is pretty much paying for a phone outright and then hoping T-Mobile honors their rebate… I don’t mind waiting 6-8 weeks for my money, but I want a 100% guarantee from T-Mobile that I qualify before I’ll make my purchase. I have been burned with the mail in rebates a few too many times. A free phone isn’t worth 6-8 weeks wait for $300 on top of 40+ hours arguing with T-Mobile about the terms of the rebate that were not discussed at the time of sale besides the verbatim “You qualify” the rep uses to get a sale.

    Hopefully my comment will at least bring you some understanding of the concerns on here about the MIR process. Some of us have been with T-Mobile for a long long time and have seen this process get consistently worse with every new phone purchase. That said, I’m all for the free/cheap phones, kudos to T-Mobile for actually having a decent sale, hopefully I can make use of it.

  • Whitney

    why mock others

  • Marcelo_L

    It’s not about whether I can afford it or not, robert….it’s the tactic I’m making a statement about. Get real. If they really “can’t” sell it for less than $400-500 out the door, then come right out and say it. The other carriers aren’t making THAT much more money on the monthlies that they still can’t compete on price.

    It’s what I’ve said on this blog (and others) for “How many years now, Marcelo?” the last 10 years since I purchased my first TMo Windows Mobile phone. — “Sell the phone at a competitive price, and the customers will come. They can’t b_tch about the price after…but they will come…and buy !”. Obviously TMo prefers to do differently. And hence they lose postpaid customers like a leaky sieve.

  • Marcelo_L

    Hence why I’ll pay an extra $50 and upgrade through Wirefly (they’ll drop their price a little this weekend just to keep up, I’m sure). I’d rather go the “old fashioned way”, but this ridiculousness with rebates has got to stop.

    I remember with the Nexus 1 having to deal with a stupid minute plan just to get a reasonable deal on the phone….went from a 3000 minute to 500(Really? I hadn’t had a plan that small since they were called Omnipoint!) minutes, and then get a nice person at TMo to put me back onto the 3K plan once more w/o extending my contract)….that was the last time someone at TMo’s done something nice……Ahh, the good ol’ days.

    Thanks David

    My handle is spelled exactly as it was intended and has been for 15+ years but thank you for the concern. :)
