Sam's Club is doing pre-orders for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus - which will be launching officially on March 16th. But Sam's Club is offering a pretty sweet deal, one that you won't find at the carriers. If you are a Sam's Club member, you can pre-order the Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus and get a $150 gift card for Sam's Club. This is good only for AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular models, however. This is going to be good through March 25th. Now if you purchase either device during the launch weekend - March 16th through 18th - you can also get the activation fee waived. Which is about $40.
Now if that $150 gift card promotion isn't enough for you to give Sam's Club your money, there's another promotion the retailer is offering. And that is up to $350 off when you trade-in your current device. This is only good for AT&T and Verizon Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus' models though. AT&T customers will be able to double up on this deal with the $150 gift card promotion as well, but only if you pre-order by March 11th. Both of these promotions are pretty good deals, and make it very tempting to pick up a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus from Sam's Club versus a carrier store or even Samsung's online store.
The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are more different this year than in previous years. But internally, both devices do sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, with 64GB of storage. The Galaxy S9 also has 4GB of RAM, a 5.8-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, and a single 12-megapixel camera with a 3000mAh battery. While the Galaxy S9 Plus ups the RAM to 6GB, has a larger 6.2-inch Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display, along with dual cameras - with two 12-megapixel sensors - and it also has a 3500mAh battery inside. Both devices are pretty impressive and will likely be some of the best smartphones to debut in 2018. So it's definitely worth picking one up.
