Sprint officially announces Black Friday deals, including 16GB Galaxy S III for $49.99Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Hot on the heels of some leaks that teased Sprint's Black Friday deals, the carrier has come out and confirmed its plans for the biggest shopping day of the year. In addition to offering a discount on the Samsung Galaxy S III on Black Friday itself, Hesse and Co. will have discounts in place both on Thanksgiving itself as well as in the days following Black Friday. Here's what specials Sprint will have on offer next week:
- November 22, Thanksgiving Day: Sprint will have some discounted devices available on its website at www.sprint.com/holiday and through telesales, including the 16GB flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S III, which will be priced at $49.99 with a two-year contract. For anyone that prefers to see all zeroes in a price tag, both the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE will be available for free on contract.
- November 23, Black Friday: Sprint will be offering its Thanksgiving Day sales in-store on Black Friday, meaning that customers can snag a 16GB Galaxy S III for $49.99 after $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract or either a Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Victory for free on contract.
- November 24-25, Saturday and Sunday: Both the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy Victory will remain on sale through the weekend, with their pricing set at $0 with a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract.
In addition to these Black Friday deals, Sprint says that it's currently waiving the activation fee on all 3G/4G tablets (tablet plan pricing here), and the carrier's holiday website also shows that it's offering the LG Viper 4G LTE and LG Optimus Elite for free. That all adds up to quite a few sales that are taking place and coming up next week, so it looks like it's a good time to be a Sprint customer with an upgrade or a new customer interested in joining the Now Network. Sprint's full announcement is available at the link below. Anyone planning on pulling the trigger on one of these deals now that they're official?
