On the heels of news that it may be cutting smartphone contracts as soon as this month comes more news out of T-Mobile as the carrier has cut the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 through its website in a deal that lasts through Sunday.

Earlier today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was being offered through T-Mobile’s website for the very expensive price of $369 on-contract. However, the carrier has slashed the price of Samsung’s 5.5-inch phablet nearly in half.
The deal, which will run through Sunday, March 3rd, sees the Galaxy Note 2 available on-contract for $199.99 which is far better than the carrier’s usual $370 on-contract asking price. T-Mobile’s pricing is far more expensive than any of the other Galaxy Note 2 carriers as they offer the phablet for $299.99 on-contract.
However, unlike other carriers, the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 isn’t available through many retailers, including Amazon which offers the Galaxy Note 2 at deeply discounted rates.
Those looking to take advantage of the offer in-stores will not find the deal available. This is a web-only offer that T-Mobile will stop running once the clock stokes midnight on March 4th. When that happens, the device will return to its normal price.
The Galaxy Note 2, along with the Galaxy S3, represent Samsung’s top-of-the-line devices at the moment. The Galaxy Note 2 is a unique smartphone in that it offers a massive display and comes bundled with a S-Pen stylus that is able to take advantage of unique applications like S-Note and others.
In addition, the Galaxy Note 2 features a future-proof quad-core processor, 16GB of storage space with a microSD card slot, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box.
T-Mobile’s device currently runs on the carrier’s HSPA+ 42 network but it has made it clear that it will be offering it on its new 4G LTE network in the future, after it rolls out a software update.
The carrier has yet to say when that software update might arrive.
