Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus + 128GB SD card + potentially £95 cashback for £844 @ Carphone Warehouse

Found 6th Mar
This is the best current deal I could find for ordering a Galaxy S9 Plus. It doesn't assume a trade-in, although CPW does offer an additional discount for that, plus a bonus. Does require signing up to a 1-month contract.

Now, I understand that many people will find that this price is too high for a phone and that's reasonable. But there are people who want to buy this specific phone and this deal seems to be the best available option for that.


First off, clear all cookies for Carphone Warehouse, just so you don't have any old sessions open.

At Quidco, they currently have a £10 cashback bonus for purchases from Carphone Warehouse but you have to explicitly activate it and it's available until Thursday for the first 20,000 people. Go find the offer and activate it.

Now go to the Carphone Warehouse page in Quidco, scroll down to "More ways to save at Carphone Warehouse Handset Contracts" and choose the "Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+" offer. This should give you £85 cashback on top of the £10 bonus.

At Carphone Warehouse, go to Shop->All SIM free phones->Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
You should see a banner for a free 128GB SD card when you pre-order. I think that's a very nice bonus, as I would have bought one anyway.

Choose the phone colour and scroll down to "SIM free" and "View bundles".
At this stage, check that the colour of the phone is still correct. I selected blue but each time the page changed it to purple. Going back doesn't help but use the "Change phone" button to select the right colour.

Sort by "Cheapest total cost" and choose the first option (O2 1 month contract). As you can see, this lowers the price of the phone to £829, plus £15 for the month of O2. Now, I haven't tried cancelling this yet, I'll contact O2 once the SIM comes. There are people who have claimed on other deals that they have been able to sign up for 12-month contracts, then cancelled them in a 14 day window, paid nothing for the contract and still kept the phone at a massive discount. At best that seems to be a glitch and I'm not convinced that will work any more, that's why I went for the 1 month option. CPW actually lists "Minimum total cost: £844.00", so that's a pretty strong indicator that cancelling after 1 month is not going to be a problem. Although, it's possible that O2 will want 30 days notice, so I'm planning to contact them as soon as I get the sim.

Carphone Warehouse also offers a trade-in deal that should work together with everything else here. You send them you old phone, they discount the S9+ for you, plus give £100 bonus. I didn't have anything to trade in so I can't comment, but look for the information on the S9+ page at CPW if interested.

So the phone itself will be £829
+ The 1 month contract £15
- Quidco cashback £85
- Quidco bonus £10
Plus you get a free 128GB SD card from Samsung

In comparison, the standard pre-order price for Galaxy S9 at most retailers is £869.

I can't quarantee that the cashback will get confirmed, history has shown that these things can be a bit dodgy. But both cashbacks already tracked for me within a couple of minutes of making the purchase:

Buying on O2 will purchase a provider locked phone... so paying less for a bit but not getting Sim Free...
Aren't car phone warehouse phones all unlocked anyway?

Yeah, carphone warehouse phones are supposedly unlocked.

Also, this is not a phone on a contract. This is a SIM free phone with a 1-month SIM-only bundle.


Can someone explain why this is voted cold? I am not aware of a better available price on this phone.

People vote cold simply because they think something is still too expensive after discount or they don't like all the steps you need to go through to possibly obtain said discount or the chance of the discount isn't guaranteed (i.e. Quidco cashback) or they simply believe that you should get the S8 because "it does the same thing for £400-£500"

I don't get it personally. I wouldn't buy an iPhone X at £1000 but if a deal comes on here and its £900 that's a saving of £100 so it is a deal for anyone who is willing to spend money in that region.

I see. Thanks!


For anyone interested, I just found this page:
quidco.com/inc…15/

It seems the cashback should work without the 1-month contract as well.
Is it with hybrid sim or single sim?

Is it with hybrid sim or single sim?

Only Samsung direct do the dual SIM from what a friend has experienced. At the same price it's literally a no brainier to go for a dual SIM imo.

Can then be used easily for business, traveling abroad, and even here for when good data sim deals come out etc

Hmm. I saw that Samsung has an option for single sim vs hybrid sim. But all the S9's have expandable storage. Does that mean the single sim option has an SD card tray that specifically can't be used for a second sim? Why would they even offer that option, given that the price is identical?

Yes, it's not as simple as just switching the tray and putting a sim inside the single sim version. This is due to the need of additional components needed for 2 sims to operate simultaneously in the hybrid versions. Hence why at the same price it's literally a no brainier giving you flexibility in the future.
This is the first time Samsung has properly given the option of dual sim in the UK upon release, usually reserved for Asia Africa.
thanks for posting this deal. I was going to wait until amazon.it had it reduced, but bit with the trade in being £275 for my s7 edge. Excellent deal!!
