Amazon Prime Day 2017 is right around the corner and is predicted to be the biggest sales day ever for the retail giant. We’ve taken a look at the deals we can expect to see this year on Samsung gadgets & electronics like the Galaxy S8 smartphone, 4K TVs and SSDs.
4K TV Deals
Last year Amazon featured two Samsung 4K TV deals in the Prime Day 2016 sale:
- The 55-inch Samsung UN55KU6600 Curved 4K Ultra HD Smart TV was available for $649.99
- The 55-Inch Samsung UN55KU6300 4K Ultra HD Smart TV was also a Prime Day 2016 deal at $549.99
Amazon has already confirmed that there will be a large number of 4K TVs on sale this year. It’s highly likely that they will work with Samsung to offer some more Prime Day deals on popular Samsung 4K TVs.
The new Samsung UN50MU6300 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (shown below) is a strong candidate for a Prime Day TV deal. The 55 and 65-inch versions of the UN50MU6300 series also fit the profile.
Galaxy Smartphone Deals
Last year Amazon offered a $50 gift card with the purchase of Prime Day Exclusive smartphones.
The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus is the best version of the top rated smartphone without carrier restrictions and Amazon is already offering it at a discounted price. It costs between $660 and $672 for the Galaxy S8, depending on the color. The same goes for the current Amazon list price of the Galaxy S8 Plus now between $739 to $765.
It’s unlikely that on Prime Day 2017 we’ll see the price of the S8 and S8+ dip any lower than they already are on Amazon.
Samsung currently offers the unlocked Galaxy S8 with 64GB on its own website for $724, so Amazon’s current deal beats even Samsung’s in-house price.
The same story applies to the Samsung Galaxy S8+, which is like a bigger, better Samsung Galaxy S8 without being too large thanks to Samsung’s minimal bezels. Samsung lists the 64GB Unlocked Galaxy S8+ at $829, and once again Amazon’s deal beats that by a substantial margin.
Amazon have already announced that they will be discounting their own Amazon Fire tablets on Prime Day 2017.
But what about Samsung Galaxy tablets?
Well the Galaxy Tab A 16GB 9.7″ tablet is 24% off on Amazon at the moment, down from $299 to $229. And the Galaxy Tab S2 32GB 9.7″ tablet is discounted by $50, available for $447 at the time of writing.
We expect to see Prime Day 2017 deals on the Galaxy Tab A 16GB 8″ and the Galaxy Tab S3 32GB 9.7″ tablets. The 8″ Tab A model is currently listed as an Amazon’s Choice item – an endorsement from the retailer that usually indicates they have lots in stock. Amazon has been criticised in previous years for selling out of their Prime Day deals too quickly – something they have promised to improve upon this year. It would be natural for this tablet to be featured in a Prime Day deal.
Similarly the Tab S3 is another Amazon’s Choice gadget. It’s one of the latest Galaxy tablet releases, so its sure to be popular with customers. The Black 32GB model is already discounted by $100 on the Amazon store though, so further reductions on Prime Day might be asking alot.
Although we didn’t see many Prime Day deals on Samsung SSD’s last year, it’s possible that bestsellers like the Samsung T3 500GB Portable SSD and Samsung 850 EVO 500GB Internal SSD will feature this year.
We’ll be updating this page over the next few days as more Samsung Prime Day 2017 deals are leaked and confirmed, so stay tuned for more.
