The new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are popping up for pre-order all over the place – why not Sam’s Club? That’s right, Sam’s Club is running a big campaign – The Next Big Thing is Almost Here – for the new devices from Samsung and you can reserve you Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge all the way up to the 128GB Galaxy S6 Edge model. They note that your reservation will be available at most Sam’s Club locations on April 10.
The pricing is $0 down for qualified members and the Galaxy S6 will cost you $187 for the 32GB on a two-year contract. The 64GB model will set you back $287 on a two-year deal and the 128GB model will cost $387. The Galaxy S6 Edge will run you $287 for the 32GB model on a two-year deal, $387 for the 64GB model and $487 for the 128GB model, with both on a two-year contract. The only colors they are carrying are the White Pearl and the Black Sapphire – possibly the Gold Platinum or the exclusive Galaxy S6’s Blue Topaz and the Galaxy S6 Edge’s Green Emerald might show up later, but Sam’s Club is probably not going to get fancy on the colors.
Remember that you must be a Sam’s Club member to make the purchase and you must have your old phone number, social security number of primary holder, a valid government photo-ID, carrier account password (if you use one) and you Sam’s Club membership card. You can purchase the Galaxy S6 devices for AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular or Verizon through Sam’s Club.
The new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are new from the ground up and their reception has been great so far – so much so that analysts are predicting that Samsung could sell up to 55 million Galaxy S6s by the end of 2015, which would make it their most popular model ever. What surprised Samsung is the tremendous response of the ‘limited’ Galaxy S6 Edge, so much so that Samsung is looking for additional help in producing enough curved displays. The Galaxy S6 Edge does look cooler and nicely balanced, but it does cost an extra $100 over the normal Galaxy S6, and only you can decide if that extra money is worth the unique display. It is definitely more form over function at this point, however, app developers may start using the ‘edge’ to create more functions than it currently possesses.
