We don’t often post clearance store deals that are difficult to find, but with the launch of the US Bank Altitude Reserve and the ability to earn 3X on that card with Samsung’s Samsung Pay/LoopPay/MST, I thought that some readers may be interested in a clearance sale on Samsung phones: select Walmart stores are carrying the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for $199 and the Samsung S7 Edge for $399. This deal is not available everywhere and can not be ordered online, but if you live near a store that shows stock, it might be worth checking to see if you can get it. These prices should be available without a contract. Some users on Slickdeals have reported that some stores have refused to sell without a contract, but this should not be required.
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for both AT&T and Verizon on clearance for $199
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for both AT&T and Verizon on clearance for $399
- Availability is limited and not all stores have stock or clearance pricing — YMMV
- See this Slickdeals thread for more information / discussion
You can use the following links to check inventory — just enter your zip code in the box and click “Search Inventory”. Note that Brickseek is not 100% accurate. I wouldn’t drive a distance out of my way based on Brickseek’s inventory reports — I have found them to be accurate more often than not, but their system is not updated in real-time (meaning that your store may have sold out this morning even though Brickseek shows it in stock). That said, if you’re passing by a store with inventory, it might be worth checking. If it shows “limited stock”, there may be a floor model, but more often than not the store either will not sell it or can not find it. If you see several in stock, it might be worth a trip to the store. Here are links to check inventory:
Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 5 N920V 32GB Black $199
AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 5 N920A 32GB Black $199(Brickseek’s description on this one says Verizon but UPC is from AT&T model)
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge G935V Black $399
AT&T Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge G935A 32GB Black $399
I found several of these to be available (albeit in limited quantities and stores) in many zip codes that I checked. For example, here was the Galaxy Note 5 in northern NJ:
Note that not all stores will have the clearance price. See this example of the S7 Edge where two stores have the $399 clearance price, but one does not:
Again, you will likely have more luck with a store that has greater quantity on hand:
Again, this deal is limited — but the prices on the Galaxy Note 5 are particularly good if you don’t mind having a phone that isn’t the latest, especially if you’re just looking for access to Samsung LoopPay. I wouldn’t drive out of my way based on Brickseek’s inventory reports, but if they are showing several in stock and you plan to be nearby the store, it might be worth stopping by. At $199/$399 with a full warranty and no contract, both phones are a decent deal. Make sure to buy electronics with a card that offers good purchase protection / an extended warranty.
