Priced at a premium of P49,990 or $978, the Note 8 (64GB version) will be available for preorder starting September 8th through the 17th. To sweeten the deal, Samsung will be providing a one-time screen replacement within 6 months of purchase, but buyers who opt in early will receive an AKG Bluetooth speaker. Meanwhile, the phone is set to hit stores — offline and online — on September 29.

If you find yourself interested in getting Samsung’s latest Galaxy flagship — and we wouldn’t blame you one bit — you should know that there are plenty of payment options available to you locally. So don’t stress yourself too much with that asking price. Head over below for your full list of options, cold, hard cash excluded.

Which stores carry the phone?

Most authorized retailers will probably have units available on site. Online stores are a different story, however, as the Note 8 will only officially go on sale in the Philippines through Lazada, Argomall, and Abenson.  

I own a credit card. What are my options?

Well, you can use your BDO or Citibank to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for P2,082.92 monthly. BDO cardholders can get the phone over 24 months at no interest.

Those with a Citibank card, on the other hand, can enjoy a payment plan of up to 36 months at zero interest, amounting to P1,388.61 per month. That’s not bad, but it also means you’ll probably wait three full years before your next flagship. Good thing the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 packs 6GB of RAM and is unfazed by water.

As always, you can buy the Note 8 using another provider, though offers will vary from retailer to retailer.

Wait. What if I don’t have a credit card?

You can still purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 through a month-by-month financing option like Home Credit, which has an offer of 12 months at zero interest with 50 percent down payment. Of course, you’ll still be required to go through the company’s standard approval and screening process.

Bonus: What are the color options available? Can I get the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in beautiful blue?

Um, no. Not at the moment. Black and gold are the only color options available for the Philippine market. But things can change in the coming months, so keep those fingers crossed.
