Samsung offering $200 off T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8, free Bluetooth headphones with purchase


T-Mobile is currently running a deal that’ll get you a free Galaxy S8 when you buy a Galaxy Note 8, trade in a device, and port in a new line, but if you only need one new smartphone, Samsung’s got a deal on the Note 8 that you should check out.

Samsung is now offering $200 off the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8, leaving it at a price of $750 or $31.25 per month for 24 months with Samsung financing.

Samsung is also offering up to $300 off your purchase with eligible trade-in. The devices that are eligible for trade-in include the iPhone 5 and up, iPhone SE, Galaxy S5 and up, Galaxy Note 5, LG G4 and up, Google Pixel, and Google Pixel XL.

What’s more, if you buy a Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active, or Note 8 from Samsung, you can get a pair of AKG headphones for free for a limited time. These are the AKG Y50BT On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones that normally sell for $180.

While buying a Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung isn’t quite the same as buying from T-Mobile since you’re not paying for your phone through T-Mo like you do your monthly wireless bill, these Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers are pretty nice and are worth considering for anyone that’s been thinking about picking up a Note 8. They’re only available for a limited time, though, so you may want to act soon if you’re interested.

    It’s crazy to me that even with $200 off, the device just now costs as much as the Note 5 did when it debuted less than 2.5 years ago. I love buying new phones every year, but with diminishing returns on new features, these seriously escalating prices just don’t seem justifiable anymore.

    I love my Note 8 (which I managed to get for $425 off due to the Note 7 fiasco), but I don’t think I’ll be able to justify spending around $1,000 on a Note 9 this year. This is compounded by the fact that a lot of upper-mid range devices seem to be “good enough” now. Something needs to change.


      Totally agree with you. I just got me the ONEPLUS 5T for $531 (no tax and free shipping). Yes, it’s not the flagship such as the Pixel/Galaxy, but it’s damn close. I just can’t justify paying over $600 for any of these new phones. I think $530 was a lot because for a while my limit was $350 fora phone

        Should have bought the BF Z2 Force for $300.

        • riverhorse

          Yeah, way smaller. Just like@ Hooters, size kinda important.

        • dcmanryan

          Smaller how? Phones are identical size almost but obviously the screen is bigger on the 5t, and it has the extra ram, camera pixels, storage (no biggie there as the Z2 has SD card support). Personally the Z2 Force with the battery mod is unbeatable in my book as battery life is so important to me and nothing will beat that combo with a snapdragon 835. Yes, there’s some issues with the phones screen, but for $300 the Z2 Force was the deal of the 2017 year IMO.


          I had the Moto x pure, before the OnePlus 5t. I kind of loved the Moto x pure, but the battery life is awful on it along with the lack of updates from Moto. The phone wasn’t snappy anymore even after getting Android 7.0 installed on it. I purchased the Moto g5 plus 64gb with 4gb of RAM for$200 new and i didn’t like it for some reason. My brother has the Moto Z (not the Z2) and he complains about the battery life. I bought him the battery mod but he said the phone was too bulky and he ended up returning it even though i got it for$25. This OnePlus 5t gets me 4.5 hours screen on time with 30% to 35% battery left with my usage. I like the fingerprint scanner on the back and the lava red color :) I thought about getting the Moto Z2 when it was on sale, but i told myself “no more Moto for me” and passed on that deal. My Moto x pure was replaced by Moto with a brand new one 3 weeks before i dropped it and shattered the screen. Moto wants$125 to replace the screen and i don’t want to buy an aftermarket for$40 because the quality is not up to par with the original. Now i have a x pure that’s 3 weeks old with a shattered screen. I might put it up for sale, but that will be my last Moto device

        • dcmanryan

          I to had the Moto X Pure with similar results and swore I’d never buy another Moto but the Z2 Force was to good of a deal. I’m shocked at how good the battery life is on the Z2 Force. I added the cheapest battery pack giving me around 5000 mah and end the day with around 50% with heavy, heavy use. People are having the screens start to peel but mines been ok so far. It’s by far the best phone I’ve owned. Not to mention the free projector mod I also got, I could not be happier.


          It was really the bad battery life and the lack of updates that told me to just not get another Moto device. I mean oto g5 plus which i got for less than$200 ( I think$198) was a steal but i just didn’t like it.
          The force Z2 i read online lots of people have issues with the screen scratching and things like that. Moto mods seem cool, but i know it’s a headache to carry an external battery and a cable s so carrying a mod is not my thing. But yeah the deal was good i remember

        • thepanttherlady

          When I bought the Moto Z, I just kept the battery mod on mine. Made the phone thicker and heavier but worth it imo.


          Yeah true, but i also thought 1 of the reasons why i didn’t get the Z2, because lots of people said the screen easily scratches up. I remember adding it to my cart on my TMobile page and i was maybe 2 clicks from submitting the order

        • thepanttherlady

          Not sure about the screen scratching. I always install a tempered glass screen protector or really good other kind before I even start using any phone.


          Maybe it wasn’t this Moto, but i read it’s the one that comes with shatterproof screen. I think the force z2 is different so you are right

        • riverhorse

          That’s what my mom said, lol. “Save your money, they’re almost the same size as Hooters’ at the coffee shop.”
          Seriously, I can’t go back to 5.2-5.5″, where most bargains abound…not even 6 only anymore. I will give in re specs to whoever is brave enough to do 6.5 or 7″w/ NFC & Oreo.

      • riverhorse

        That’s the main symptom of dyslexia [530/350]. Lol
        I almost pulled the trigger on the 5t, best phone for the money.

  • Eric Witkowski

    Is the LGV20 eligible for the $300 update? So you get $200 off buying thru Samsung and another $300 off if you trade in a phone?

  • angelo

    I can get it for $600+Tax. It’s $950 -200 – 150 through my employer. No free AKG headphones though. Good deal for Note 8 for $600? Suggestions

    • J.J.

      Brand new at 600 is a great buy.

  • vplaza

    I traded in my S7 Edge for $250, so total of $450 off the phone. $500 for the Note 8 plus the AKG headphones seemed too good to pass up to get the current flagship phone, even if it’s about to be one upped by the S9/S9+.

  • HeatFan786

    FYI, iPhone SE typo in the article.

  • Sandy

    When is the $200 off Note8 and $300 off trade-in offered from and till??

  • Philip

    Use the Samsung Shop app is cheaper. I was able to get to $430ish for T-mobile. I have to trade in my good Note 5, which is not going to worth $350 out in the market now.

    Realistically, you can sell the BT headphone for $50-$60. I seen the numbers on ebay.

    But … I found no use for the s-pen. I might just wait for S9+ which is coming next month.

    • MindFog2287

      And the S9+ will have Band 71 support. I was tempted on the Note8 as well, especially considering I could sell the headphones & the $350 trade on my Note5, but I think it’s probably worth waiting for 71. If I’m spending this much on a replacement, I might as well spend a little more and be future-proofed.

      • Philip

        Do you miss the s-pen? The S9+ will be a little little little bit thinner than N8. But $350 trade for the Note 5 is nice! Now is the time if you want the Note.

        • MindFog2287

          I think I have used the S-pen maybe three times since I have been using the note. It’s definitely not a dealbreaker for me. Yeah, the $350 was tempting, but I want some of that band 71.
