Updated Dec. 12: Save $200 on the Galaxy S9 or $250 on the Galaxy S9 Plus when you buy and activate either device from Samsung.
Whether you're a Galaxy S series fan or switching from iPhone to Android, Samsung has a Christmas deal to help you save money. Currently, Samsung offers the base model Samsung Galaxy S9 for $619.99, while the unlocked Galaxy S9 Plus is $739.99. That's $100 off each phone.
For a limited time, you'll get $200 off the Galaxy S9 when you buy it from Samsung and activate it on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon. That lowers the cost of the Galaxy S9 down to $519.99. If you opt for the Galaxy S9+, you'll save $250 when you activate it on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon, which drops the price down to $549.99.
T-Mobile and US Cellular customers will save $200 and pay $639.99 for the phone. What's more, you can stack your savings and get up to $300 toward your purchase by trading in your current eligible device.
If you don't want to pay for the devices up front, Samsung's Verizon Device Payment Program lets you finance the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ for $25.83/month or $30.83/month, respectively. Both payment plans span over the course of 24 months.

Best Buy is taking up to $300 or $400 off the Galaxy S9 or S9+ when you activate your device on either the Verizon or Sprint wireless network. Get an AT&T-tied S9 at Best Buy, and you'll pay $26.34 a month for 30 months — the same price that AT&T is currently charging when you buy directly from the carrier. Sprint customers will pay the same $9 a month on Sprint's 18-month Flex Plan. A Verizon-tied S9 from Best Buy will cost you $20.50 a month for 24 months.
If you want to purchase a no strings attached unlocked phone, you'll save $150 on either device.
Walmart is offering up to $150 off Galaxy S9 or S9+ in-store purchases only when you sign up for a installment agreement with AT&T or Verizon. Alternatively, you can purchase an unlocked Galaxy S9 for $479.99. This deal is only for the Lilac Purple color variant and it's sold by third-party seller Incredible Cellular via Walmart.
Verizon is currently offering a holiday deal that cuts $100 off the price of the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ if you're simply upgrading or $300 off if you're switching to Big Red.
At AT&T, buy a Galaxy S9 at full price ($789.99) on AT&T's Next installment plan (30 months at $26.34/mo.) or AT&T Next Every Year (24 months at $32.92/mo.) and get a second S9 for free. Alternatively, you'll get $790 off a second S9+. However, keep in mind the device will be "free" in the form of bill credits (applied to your account). So you'll need to purchase both devices at full price upfront. The deal also applies to the Note 9. Through Nov. 30, you can get a $200 trade-in credit on eligible devices in good condition when you buy a Galaxy S9 or S9+.
If it's the lowest monthly price you're after, Sprint has Galaxy S9 for $9/month (normally $33/month) or the S9+ at $10/month (normally $38/month). Both require an 18-month Spring Flex lease, and you've got to open a new line of service.
The UnCarrier Network currently has a free 50-inch Samsung 4K TV when you buy a Galaxy S9 or S9+ and activate two line. That means you'll pay $720 for the S9 ($30/month over 24 months) or $840 for the S9+ ($31.25/month over 24 months + a $90 down payment) and get the second phone for free via 24 monthly bill credits up to $750. Just keep in mind that the offer requires that you open a new line of service.
The prepaid carriers are also getting in on the S9 deals. Metro by T-Mobile has the best price on the S9, withe the phone costing $549. At Boost, you'll pay $649.99 for the S9. Neither carrier sells the S9+.
StraightTalk is offering the S9 for $699.99 and the S9+ for $829.99. The carrier also lets you buy phones on installment plans, though that will cost you more than if you just bought the phone outright
