Yesterday, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship, and now you can officially put in a preorder for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. In a limited promotional offer, the company is offering bundle deals for preorders that’ll include either its Gear 360 camera or a wireless charging pad and memory card, but you have to put in an order before September 24th.

Before you speed off to get the new phone, know that carriers and retailers aren’t all offering up preorders at the same time. Here are the ones that are available as of 12 AM today and otherwise. We’ll update this article as more information comes in.

It runs $929 for the 64GB version with free shipping, or $38.75/ mo for 24 months, in addition to tax.
