While Black Friday is still technically 36 hours or so away at the time of this writing, and the vast majority of Best Buy’s doorbusters dedicated to the occasion have been slated for a Thanksgiving Day inauguration, it’d be a shame not to check out some of the retailer’s already available holiday steals.
After offering the US unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 for an all-time low price of $550, free fast charge wireless pad included, and a $600 128GB Surface Pro 4 keyboard bundle a couple of weeks back, then throwing in $300 gift cards with LG G5 purchases, BB today discreetly knocks the Moto G4 Play off to $49.99.
There’s obviously one big catch, namely an obligation to activate the 5-inch phone on a prepaid Verizon plan, but still, you’re looking at LTE connectivity, near-stock Android Marshmallow with Nougat decidedly on the way, 16GB expandable storage, 2GB RAM, and decent 2,800 mAh battery capacity.
Normally, the Big Red prepaid G4 Play costs $85, although we’ve seen it discounted to $65 not long ago. Never to $50, of course.
At the same time, you can procure a wide range of Samsung tablets at marked-down prices, including a $70 Galaxy Tab E Lite, $90 Tab A (2016) 7.0, $200 Tab A 10.1, and $400 Galaxy View, the latter of which used to cost a whopping $550. Oh, and if you happen to pass by a Best Buy physical store, do inquire about this Galaxy S7 trade-in program promising $450 in gift cards for any “working smartphone” replaced with a brand-new Samsung flagship on a Verizon, AT&T or Sprint monthly installment plan.
