Should you get the non-“edgy” Samsung Galaxy S7 from Best Buy with a complimentary $250 gift card and Gear VR headset on a monthly installment plan, or are Verizon and AT&T’s extended Black Friday deals, letting you nab the Note 7 replacement phone completely free of charge… with strings attached, better?

Well, what if you give both the big-box retailers and major carriers the cold shoulder this Cyber Monday, and instead decide to pick up the 5.1-inch flat-screened flagship Android from Cricket Wireless?

Technically, you’ll still be doing business with one of America’s big four wireless companies, but at least AT&T’s prepaid daughter operator reduces its conditions for “Merrier Monday” Galaxy S7 deal entry. All you need to do is activate the device, typically available for $650, on a smartphone plan with a new line of service or network switch, and you’ll get a whopping 50 percent off its list price.

Namely, $325 off, and $325 left to pay today and tomorrow, November 29, only, while supplies last. Still a little rich for your blood? Then maybe Cricket can interest you in a $50 LG Stylo 2 or LG X Power, marked down from $150 and $100 respectively, and good until January 5, or “while supplies last.” Oh, come on, you can scrape together enough extra cash to not let that irresistible Galaxy S7 promo elude you.
