Cyber Monday is here, and the tech deals continue to roll in at a furious pace. Last week, Samsung's gorgeous Odyssey G9 49-inch ultrawide gaming monitor was discounted to $999 for Black Friday, representing a $400 discount off its usual price. Today, however, that same monitor is available for just $899 direct from Samsung, an all-time low price.
To obtain the $899 price, you'll need to jump over just one small hurdle. Before adding the Odyssey G9 to your cart, you must enable the Samsung Discount Program, which is really just a box for you to click. You don't need to sign up for anything.
You can enable the Samsung Discount Program one of two ways. First, if you say a dropdown that says "Save up to an extra $100 with Samsung Discount Program," you can click it and select Education Discounts. Samsung will not ask you to verify that you are a student or teacher and will just take $100 off.
If you don't have that dropdown menu, scroll down to the bottom of the product page to the column titled Offers. Next, click on Student & Educator Discounts. Finally, go back to the Odyssey G9 product page, add it to your cart and you should now see the $899 price.
