When Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Note 4 went for sale in the U.S. last month, Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY) was offering $200 minimum trade-in offer. That deal is no longer available. But for those who don’t want to trade in an old device for the brand new Galaxy Note 4, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) is offering a new deal. This deal comes just a couple of weeks after the Note 4 hit the U.S. stores to challenge the iPhone 6 Plus.
Wal-Mart offering Galaxy Note 4 for $268
Wal-Mart’s deal is valid on AT&T and Verizon models, reports GottaBeMobile. The retail giant’s Black Friday 2014 deals have gone live, weeks ahead of Thanksgiving. But this offer is not part of the Black Friday deal. In fact, it’s not big enough to be considered a Galaxy Note 4 Black Friday deal. Wal-Mart has cut $40 off the price of the device.
What can past market crashes teach us about the current one?
In Wal-Mart stores, you can buy the AT&T or Verizon Galaxy Note 4 for $268. The Korean company offers its phablet in black and white options. However, it’s pretty difficult to find the white version. Best Buy has the black version available, but the white color option for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint is sold out in stores and online. The Galaxy Note 4 seems to be suffering from a limited supply. Costco has run out of stock in stores.
Galaxy Note 4 supply limited
It is still unclear whether supply limitations are due to manufacturing delays or stronger-than-expected demand or a combination of the two. The Galaxy Note 4 sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, metal design, S Pen Stylus, Qualcomm’s 2.7GHz quad core Snapdragon 805 silicon, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, Android KitKat, and faster charging capabilities. The device also features a fingerprint sensor, a heart rate monitor, 3220mAh battery, LED flash, a 16-megapixel main camera and 3.7-megapixel front camera. Samsung also offers 50GB of free storage on Dropbox for two years.
