Black Friday is officially in full swing and retailers and making their final discounts available before Cyber Monday. If you’re on the hunt for a new smartphone, Best Buy has some good deals that are worth checking out. Don’t forget to check out the 5 best deals for Target and Walmart this Black Friday too.
As ever, let’s start with the big guns. For the latest iPhone XS and XS Max, Best Buy (and Sprint) are offering $150 off the total price of a 24 or 18 month contract, which is discounted in monthly instalments.
There’s also $100 off last year’s iPhone X alongside a 24 month contract. If buyers choose Sprint as their carrier, there’s $200 off the the total price (also distributed over 24 months).
It’s worth noting that signing up to a long contract isn’t ideal, but there are also few straight money off discounts for Apple’s latest smartphones this Black Friday. So this is one of the better deals. Elsewhere, Target and Walmart are offering gift cards worth between $150 and $400 for the iPhone X and XS.
Best Buy does has a good Samsung Galaxy S9 deal however, knocking $200 off the unlocked price, which is the same as Samsung’s offer on all of its 2018 range. The difference here, of course, is that Samsung also offers good trade-in prices, so you can pick up an S9 cheaper directly from Samsung.com. The Note 9 is available with a 24 month Sprint contract for $480 too, which amounts to $300 off.
Sticking with the Android theme, LG’s latest ThinQ gets a huge $624 discount, bringing the total price down to $168. It’s over a 24 month contract, but even for a contract deal, that’s good. Outside of being tied to Sprint for two years, you probably won’t see a cheaper top-end Android this Black Friday.
There’s also $400 off Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with a 24 month contract, with the discount applied monthly over the full course of the contract. The overall price comes to $399 and $499 for the smaller and larger devices respectively, but it does mean you have to stick with that phone for two years. If you want to buy a Pixel 3 upfront with a decent discount, head over to the Google store.
Best Buy has some of the better smartphone Black Friday sales this year, which aren’t all long contract deals. It even matches up to Samsung’s impressive Black Friday sale.
