A couple months back, mobile carrier Visible was offering this sweet deal: The Samsung Galaxy A51 for $208 after rebate. It's still available, though you'll be paying $408 up front and then using Visible as your carrier for at least two months (not that there's anything wrong with that).
Prefer immediate savings? Here's the best non-rebate deal to date: For a limited time, and while supplies last, eBay seller Never-msrp has the new, unlocked Galaxy A51 for $279.99. Regular price: $399.99. Note that shipping may take about a week. You can also get six free months of Spotify Premium, provided you've never had an account before. That's a $60 value.
