The Samsung Galaxy S8 deals never stop coming, and now Samsung is offering another whopper of a deal with up to $300 of a new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus with the trade-in of a number of devices.

This deal requires that you trade in your old phone, and will discount the Galaxy S8 price by either $200 or $300 depending on the phone traded in. For the Galaxy S8, that can mean a price as low as $424. And for the Galaxy S8 Plus, the price can hit $524.

Toss in the value of a Gear VR headset, and this deal means serious savings.

Here are the eligible devices for trade-in and how much they'll reduce the Galaxy S8 price.

$300 Trade-ins:

  • Galaxy Note 5
  • Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge / S7 Active
  • iPhone 7 / 7 Plus
  • Google Pixel / Pixel XL
  • LG G4 / G5 / G6 / V20

$200 Trade-ins:

  • Galaxy S5 / S6 / S6 Edge / S6 Edge Plus
  • iPhone 5 / 5S / 6 / 6 Plus / 6S / 6S Plus / SE

If you don't have any interest in the Gear VR, it's worth noting that the Galaxy Note 8 is eligible for the same trade-in discount. Considering the new Galaxy Note 8 is upwards of $900, it doesn't hurt to save a quick $300. 

For anyone who doesn't have a phone to trade in, there's to save $150 on the Galaxy Note 8 from Best Buy. You can check out the Galaxy Note 8 Best Buy deal here.
