There's one caveat: the international model of the Galaxy Note 9 won't work on CDMA networks like Verizon or Sprint, but it will work on GSM-based carriers T-Mobile, AT&T, and smaller MVNO carriers running on those major networks. And, since the model comes unlocked, you'll be able to take it to whichever GSM carrier you prefer.

The $300 discount is on a Midnight Black or Ocean Blue model and is available through Thursday. If you do need a CDMA model, Samsung is directly offering Verizon- or Sprint-ready models for $699 when purchased on the carrier's installment plan, but these don't come unlocked. You can get even more off with a trade-in.

This is one of the best deals we've seen on the Galaxy Note 9 without requiring multiple purchases or the trade-in of a recent flagship phone to get a good discount.
