Samsung’s new flagship phones, the Galaxy S9 and S9+, have arrived, and although it’s not the biggest improvement since the S8, it’s still one of the best Android smartphones out there. There are plenty of places to preorder the new phone before its release on Friday, March 16th. If you’re looking for flexibility, your best option is direct with Samsung; you can get the phones unlocked at one of the lowest prices available at $719.99 for the S9 and $839.99 for the S9+. If you’re not too interested in the S9, but still want to get your hands on a new phone, other retailers are marking down strong Android competitors like the Google Pixel 2 and the S9’s predecessor, the S8.

The S9 might be Samsung’s biggest deals news this week, but it’s certainly not the only one. The manufacturer is also offering a great deal for gamers until April 28th. With the purchase of select, eligible SSDs like the Portable 1TB T5, 512GB 960 PRO M.2, 1TB 960 EVO NVMe M.2, 1TB 860 PRO 2.5” SATA III, 1TB 860 EVO 2.5” SATA III, and 1TB 860 EVO M.2 SATA, you’ll receive a game code for the hotly anticipated Far Cry 5 once the game is released on Tuesday, March 27th. Versions like the Portable 1TB T5 are already on sale, and tacking on the extra $60 value for the game code makes it a pretty solid, unique deal.
