The Biggest Holiday Deals on Smartphones
New smartphones are released every year–but they’re only getting more expensive. Don’t shell out $1,000 or more for the newest high-tech cell phones. Just wait until the start of the holiday season, and you’ll see the deals last through New Year’s.
If you’ve been eyeing the latest releases from the biggest names in smartphones, the day after Thanksgiving and the weeks that follow mark the best time to buy. Once Cyber Week kicks off and we head into the holidays, the biggest online shopping season of the year, you’ll find deep discounts on the most sought after smartphones.
You won’t find steals this surprising or this affordable any other week of the year. During the Holidays, you can save hundreds on the smartphone you’ve been saving for.
These are the biggest cell phone deals that you need to pay attention to this holiday season.
Samsung Galaxy 8
Fortunately for Samsung fans, every one of the newest Galaxy cell phones will be deeply discounted during the holidays.
Samsung is offering $400 off the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8 if you trade in your current smartphone. You don’t have to own a Samsung phone to take advantage of this holiday deal: Samsung will accept iPhones, Google’s Pixel, and the LG G4 for trade-ins.
You can also score a great deal on any Samsung Galaxy 8 model through Best Buy. The tech retailer is offering $300 of these smartphones when you agree to a contract with Sprint or Verizon.
LG smartphones are always more affordable than many other competitors’ high-priced phones, and they’re becoming even cheaper during the holiday season.
Head to Best Buy either online or in-person any time after Thanksgiving and you can score the LG G6 for just $5 per month. You do have to sign up for a 2-year contract with Sprint–and keep in mind that, if you cancel your contract, you’ll have to pay the remaining cost of the phone.
Regardless of your carrier choice, the LG G6 totals just $120. This is a serious steal compared to the $1,000 or more price tag of models by Apple and Samsung.
The Moto G5 Plus
Motorola made a splash when it reentered the cell phone market recently, offering reasonably priced choices for those who don’t need a big brand name behind their smartphone. If you’ve become a fan of these Android phones, you’re in luck this holiday season.
The Moto G5 Plus is a brand-new release, but it’s already going on sale before Christmas. Best Buy is offering the 64GB model for a little over $200.
An added bonus: this smartphone isn’t tied into a wireless contract and arrives unlocked. You can use the Moto G5 on any network you choose.
The iPhone SE
Apple fans can get excited for the holidays: a few older generation iPhones are about to see incredibly deep discounts. Though the iPhone typically totals more than $700, retailers like Target are offering stunningly low prices.
During the holiday season, you can find the iPhone SE for just $99 at Target–a huge deal, considering the Apple Store is still selling this model for $349.
There are no activation fees or special contracts tied to this great deal. The iPhone SE sells unlocked, ready for use on any wireless network.
So whether you’re looking to save some cash on a savvy and state-of-the-art cell phone or want the biggest, best, and most impressive device on the market, these are the device deals you need to know the holiday season. Check them out for yourself and get ready to save.
