    I pulled the trigger and preordered the Ultra today. I went with the 512g and 16g ram model. Mostly because the 256-12 model in phantom black was sold out with a four to five week window to restock. I went unbranded but I'll be using Verizon as my carrier replacing my current Note 10+ on my unlimited plan. Expected delivery date of Feb. 9th.

    I ordered the 22nd with a projected delivery date of Feb. 9th.
    I used my Note 10+ as a trade in for the 512 model and was allowed $550 for the trade.
    I was given $200 Sammy credit and a rep gave me an additional $50 credit to be used for accessories
    With the purchase I got a Smarttag and four months free Youtube premium subscription
    My total cost with trade in was $829.99

    I placed my preorder this afternoon through Samsung US. Unlocked, 256GB in Phantom Black. Got $550 credit for my S10+, a free smart tag, and $200 credit towards accessories, tvs or a vacuum cleaner. lol I got an S View case w/ S Pen, a rugged case, an extra S Pen, UV Sterilizer thing, and the fast charge wall charger that apparently doesn't come with the phone anymore. Website said it'll ship by Feb 5.

    I didn't spend my Samsung credits at checkout. I understand I have a month window to use or lose once I receive the phone. I was undecided on what I might purchase at the time. Today I ran to Costco for supplies and dropped off for a hands on with the Ultra. I must say, I'll be loving this phone! Smooth as butter and lightening fast with a display that is astounding. I also played with the Galaxy Watch 3. I guess that's how I'll be spending my preorder rewards. I currently wear a Gear S3 Frontier. It's three almost four years old but has zero problems. I don't need their buds and not a big S pen guy... the watch upgrade seems to be the best way to use my credits.

    Dang, they had a display one? Jealous!

    I bought from BestBuy, so I have to wait for phone to be in hand to get the $200 credit and smart tag. Probably going to get the new buds and the sanitizer box, lol.

    I bought mine for $1150

    $650 for S21 Plus

    used a $30 gift card and $60 in reward credits I had.

    Out of pocket: $450

    Yes they did and I took advantage of the opportunity to explore. It's very comparable in size and weight to my Note 10+. It's taken me a year to become accustomed to the buttons being on the wrong side of the Note... now I'll have to relearn that. It felt great in the hand and looks... OMG what a beautiful phone! The sales rep came over to assist me and I told him I just needed some hands on fun while I was waiting for my order to arrive. He smiled and said I well understand... It's quite a phone. We are in for a treat!
