Here you go.
They made the site so difficult to navigate and aren’t promoting their promotions well.;;

How good is this deal?
I'm willing to wait up to a year but I'm not sure if the price would be much different.
$1200 for a phone is hefty. Do they have any payment plans? I came across a booth at the Eaton Center offering a payment plan.

Doesn't this mean you would have bought it already? Sept 14?

That its just extending the date to submit for the free gifts?
Right. No deal. ;;

Some people vouch for the Whitestone Dome, but it's expensive and it's not exactly problem free.
Look it up on XDA.
i vouched on the whitestone dome as well. have it on my S8+. one time when i guess i missed my pocket, the phone went screen first on the ground from waist height. screen protector still on but shattered. took the screen protector off and not a single scratch on the screen. ordered another one to replace it.

High chance of that one being blacklisted soon after someone buys it.
Have them meet you at the carrier and have the phone taken off the account. No blacklisting after that.

Also, be weary of clones. Do your research.

If the phone was obtained on contract (likely, given the 33% reduction in asking price), "taking it off the account" won't do much. Heck, I'm pretty sure I could report it if my OnePlus 5 gets stolen and the IMEI would still get blacklisted even when carriers never sold the device.

Telus just offered me $250 device cost for samsung NOTE 8 with $75 monthly plan(unlimited minutes + 3GB data).
Is this good to sign now? I understand it could be many deals coming on black Friday. But this is business plan. not sure if it's good to sign.

Been using the phone for 2 weeks now, what an upgrade from the Note 3 lol...

I am not a fan of the curve edges (although I am fine with edge app) and the headphone jack being at the bottom.
I love the S-Pen (I actually prefer to use it instead of my fingers, although it's pretty slow to type on the keyboard with the pen).
Bixby isn't bad either, although I wish it worked with Spotify.
