Here's a look at all the ways you can get a Galaxy Note 9, including some holiday specific deals for Samsung's 6.4-inch Android phablet.

Amazon

Amazon's best price right now on the Galaxy Note 9 is the aforementioned $920 offer which knocks $80 off its list price. If you're not against buying a refurbished smartphone, you can save even more. Currently, a certified refurbished Note 9 costs $518 at Amazon.

Samsung

In addition to selling the Note 9 for Verizon activation at a $100 discount -- that's $899.99 for the 128GB base model and $1,149 for the 512GB version -- you can also trade-in a phone at Samsung to reap even more savings. Samsung offers up to $300 in trade-in value depending on the phone you have to offer. (Newer devices fetch a better return.)

Best Buy

Best Buy is selling the Note 9 for $949.99 unlocked which is $50 off. It's also offering bigger savings when you buy a carrier-tied version of the phone and pay for it in monthly installments. Buy the Verizon Note 9 at Best Buy and you'll pay $33.33 a month over 24 months, while the AT&T version costs $33.34 over 30 months. That adds up to $200 in savings over the life of the payments.

The savings are bigger at Sprint, where Best Buy will charge you $20 a month for the Note 9 over 24 months. That adds up to $520 in savings.

Sprint

Open a new line of service at Sprint, and you can enjoy some savings on an 18-month Sprint Flex lease for the Note 9. Sprint will charge just $20 a month, instead of the normal $41.67 rate. You can upgrade to a new phone after 12 months.

AT&T

AT&T still lists the Note 9 at $999, but dig a little deeper and you'll find that you can get a $200 credit when you buy the phablet and trade-in an eligible device. You can also get a second Note 9 at a substantial discount when you buy your first Note 9 on a $33.34-a-month 30-month AT&T Next plan; AT&T will knock 75 percent off the cost of the second phone in the form of monthly bill credits. That deal ends Nov. 30, though.

Verizon

At one point before Cyber Monday, Big Red was slashing $400 off the Galaxy Note 9 with no trade-in. That deal has sadly passed, but you can still save a respectable $100 when upgrading to the Note 9, or $300 when switching from another carrier; you'll need to trade-in an eligible device to get the discount in the form of monthly bill credits. This deal also extends to a number of other models, including the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, Galaxy S9 and S9+, and LG V40 ThinQ and G7.

T-Mobile

At T-Mobile, buy a Note 9 at full price on a monthly payment plan, add a new qualifying line of service (2 lines total), trade in an eligible device, and you'll get up to $750 via promotional credits and trade in value. Eligible phones for trade-in include various models from the Note 5 to the original 1st-gen Pixel. Just keep in mind that T-Mobile requires a $150 down payment with the purchase of the Note 9 on an installment plan. (You'll pay $20.84 a month over 36 months after that.)
