Those waiting to pick up a new Samsung Galaxy S8 can actually get two for the price of one, if they're okay with opening two new lines on Sprint, or opening one new line and upgrading another to do it. It is worth noting that this deal seems to be for the standard Galaxy S8 as the price listed is $31.25 per month, with no mention of the Galaxy S8 Plus or pricing relevant to the device. So if you are planning on specifically picking up the Plus version of the Galaxy S8, this might not be a deal for you. In either case, those who opt for this deal will be netting two Galaxy S8 units with 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, and Samsung's very own 5.8-inch Infinity Display. The promotion starts when the Galaxy S8 officially hits stores on April 21, and will run through until April 27.
Along with this deal, Sprint is running a sweepstakes in partnership with Samsung. The grand prize is a $5,000 shopping spree on Samsung's website, where they can find Samsung products like tablets, TVs, and laptops. A special daily prize will see one lucky winner (per day) getting a home monitoring kit made with Samsung SmartThings IoT devices. The kit consists of a SmartThings Hub, two mutli-purpose sensors, two motion sensors, and one outlet. This contest runs all the way until May 11 so there is plenty of opportunities to win.
Customers who take advantage of this deal, just like customers who lay down the usual amount of their hard-earned cash, are eligible for Sprint's new Galaxy Forever program, which lets them upgrade to the newest Samsung Galaxy S flagship each year, so long as they've made 12 good payments on their current device. Given Samsung's fairly regular flagship release cycle, this means that customers will most likely be able to get the newest Samsung Galaxy S flagships as soon as it launches next year. Sprint touts the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus as the first devices to take advantage of Sprint's High Performance User Equipment (HPUE) network upgrades, boasting up to 30-percent better coverage than Sprint's existing network.
