If you’ve had your eye on the Samsung Galaxy S3, but haven’t yet made the leap to purchase it, today might be the right day. As previously reported, the S3 is part of Best Buy’s Deal of the Day, selling for 50 percent off, today only.

The deal doesn’t mention a specific carrier, but when I took the deal for a test drive, the only carrier option presented to me was Sprint. It isn’t clear if other carriers may be options depending on your location, but I tried the deal with multiple zip codes and still found Sprint was the only option presented. Still, it’s $99 for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S3, so depending on your carrier preference, this could be for you.

Are you planning to use this deal to get yourself a new Samsung Galaxy S3? Or have you already got one? Have you got any tips for potential buyers?

    Already have one, but it’s about to be checked out by Samsung, as I pressed my home button and my fucking glass cracked below it… FUCK GORILLA GLASS

  • Well I headed over and was planning on purchasing two of these, but the site gives me an error and a phone number when I try to add the phone and when I called they just said they might be going through some updates that are messing up the site.

    When will the sales begin on Galaxy Note 2?

    Why did they end the sale early? There’s still over an hour on the ‘Daily Deal’ countdown but the price is already back up to $199. I was really hoping to finally upgrade.
