Samsung has posted their quarterly turnover for the last three months, and it makes extremely good reading for executives and shareholders of the Korean based electronics company. A large portion of that revenue has been put down to the success of their Galaxy S range of devices such as the S II and the current flagship S III powerhouse that is leading the Android market. To celebrate the earnings announcement, Best Buy is offering the Galaxy S III at a 50% reduced rate for the next three hours.
We have previously seen companies like Amazon offering the S III with price reduction incentives and now its Best Buy’s turn to entice some new activations in by offering the LTE compatible smartphone for an initial payment of $99, reduced from the standard price of $199. At the time of writing; the deal has three hours left to run and requires that consumers sign onto a minimum term two-year contract with either Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile.
Best Buy is offering the reduction as their current deal of the day with the choice of either a Pebble Blue, Marble White or Garnet Red handset and the choice of network provider from the three mentioned above. In addition to the 50% reduction in initial cost, Best Buy is also offering free shipping as standard with each activation. Potential purchasers can choose to go through with the deal and activation via the Best Buy website or pick one up through a participating physical outlet.
The Galaxy S III is heralded as one of the best smartphones on the market right now and is currently thought of as the most accomplished Android device available. The device has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, a rear 8-megapixel camera and comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich preinstalled as default. Additional technologies such as 4G LTE and Near Field Communications (NFC) put the Galaxy S III ahead of most other devices in use right now so picking one up for 50% off the recommended price is definitely a good deal.
If you’ve been waiting for a deal like this before grabbing a new contract then head on over to the Best Buy offer before it ends and it’s to late.
