Frequently Asked Questions

  • While Apple rarely offers Black Friday discounts, you can count on major phone carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile to offer incredible discounts on iPhones during Black Friday sales. To qualify for iPhone discounts, you usually need a qualifying trade-in device and/or enroll in one of their mobile plans.

    Samsung phones are also popular during Black Friday because we often see big discounts from phone carriers as well as from Samsung’s website. You can expect to see sales for older models like the Samsung Galaxy S20 as well as newer models like the Samsung S21 or the Galaxy Z Flip and Fold phones.

  • You can start shopping for smartphone deals now from major retailers and mobile carriers. Some deals may only be available closer to Black Friday, so keep your eyes out and mark your calendars if you see a deal you are excited about.

  • The biggest discounts will often come from slightly older smartphone models, as retailers want to get rid of older inventory to make room for newer models. However, we may still see some recent model phones on sales, too. Your best bet at finding amazing deals will be from phone carriers like AT&T and Verizon, who have historically offered the phone for “free” if you sign up for a plan and/or include a trade-in device. Of course, you can also find great sales on unlocked phones from major retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon and Walmart.
