Sam’s Club members who are looking to buy a smartphone are advised to hold their horses and wait till 5 August. The Walmart membership warship is giving great offers on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones along with other handsets at its one-day Fall Preview Event which has been scheduled to take place on August 5. Apart from the Samsung flagships, other electronic devices such as Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPad are also on offer.

Apple and Samsung flagships at a discounted rate in August

Once again, we can thank Phonearena for bringing out the good news on the best deals.

According to them, one can purchase either the Galaxy S8 or the S8+ to receive a gift card worth $350. According to Sam’s management, the $350 gift card is the highest valued card ever offered for the purchase of the Galaxy S8. Given that our maths is correct, this would mean that the Sam gift card is the best BOGO deal that has been offered for the Samsung flagship. Sam’s has stated that the activation fee on the device will be not claimed if one purchases either the Galaxy S8 or the Galaxy S8+.

However, if you are in a mood to purchase a new Apple iPhone, then offers are available on the Apple iPhone 7 and the 7s for the Fall Preview Event on August 5. On the purchase of either an iPhone 7 or an 7 Plus, the consumer will receive a $200 Sam’s Club gift card.

Apart from that similar to Galaxy S8 and S8+, the activation fee for the iPhones will be waived off with the purchase. However, both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus offers are restricted to only five gift cards for each member.

Other offers

Other than offers on premium handsets from Apple and Samsung, Sam’s Club is also offering the new 10.5-inch Apple iPad Pro, Wi-Fi only at a discount.

The new Apple tablet can be purchased at a discount of $75 making the retail price come to $673. If you are looking for an Android run tablet, Sam’s also has offers on the samsung galaxy Tab E Lite 7.0 at its August 5 Fall Preview Event. The Samsung tablet can be purchased for just $79.86.

Sam’s Club is offering the tablet deals to online purchases only and these offers will be limited to only five purchases per membership.

Although the wholesaler may not be the first option that one may consider for buying electronics, these deals are great for anyone eyeing a new smartphone at a good price. It remains to be seen whether the Preview Event lures several buyers into cashing in on the innumerable smartphone offers Sam's Club will have on offer.
