The next big smart phone from Samsung is the Galaxy S8 and its larger brother, the S8+. Both offer some great new features, including better screen resolutions, a voice-controlled virtual assistant named Bixby, curved edges, and 64GB expandable storage> Additionally, the S8 will be one of the first smart phones to have the home button appear onscreen rather than physically at the bottom.
While the phone won't be available until April 21st, the pre-order deals are already up and running. Here's where to find the best deal on this new phone.
Where to find the best trade-in deal: Verizon Wireless
Our top tip for saving on the S8 is to trade in an old phone at Verizon before you buy the new one. Verizon is currently the only carrier is offering online trade-in that's directly tied to your monthly payments, which you can get you the phone for around $15 per month (on top of you other monthly payments) over 24 months. The S8+ with trade-in will be $20 per month. Plus, you get a free Samsung Gear VR headset, which normally retails for $99.99. Keep in mind that to get the lowest monthly amount, you trade-in must be in good condition and, naturally, the newer the model, the more money you will get for it.
Where to find the best off-the-shelf deal: Best Buy
If you don't want to trade in an old phone, or if you have a model that is too old or worn to trade in, head over to Best Buy for the next best deal. It has the same offers as Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, but is throwing in a $50 discount on top of that.
