Pocketnow’s Cyber Monday 2018 deals update!
If you’ve been dragged through mall after strip mall and are looking forward to actually completing your holiday shopping in the comfort of a computer display tomorrow, we’ve got your go-to list for the things in mobile technology you (or your pals) want!
We’ve updated our Black Friday deals list with new information on savings for the coming days and a wider Unlocked section at the bottom of the page. Take heed!
Note: Where a widely-available retail deal is available, we will supply a link to a B&H Photo listing, denoted in italicized bold text. As Pocketnow is an affiliate, we may generate revenue if you click through.
When it comes to purchasing any of these phones, you’ll have one way or another of taking them to the carrier of your choice. It just so happens that they all have the latest high-octane spec sheets in their class, so you’ll be all set for the next dozen (or two or three) of months.
- You’ll find it difficult to get anything other than “buy one, get one” offers for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR at the carriers.
- Trusted eBay sellers, though, are selling refurbished iPhone X devices at weekend lows from $549 for the 64GB version and $745 for a 256GB unit.
- That said, if you’re okay with putting up with Apple Store Gift Cards — you’ll have to buy another Apple product with it — you can get $50 back on the iPhone 7, 8 or their Plus sizes.
- You may have missed your chance on straight-up discounts for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but Google Store customers can get a free Google Home Hub and $50 in Google Store credit with the purchase of either phone. More details at the store.
- As for Samsung, you can buy a Galaxy S9, S9+ or Note 9 for $200 off or take just $100 off and get a $200 goodie package — featuring AKG headphones, a wireless charging pad, a case for your phone and a DeX cable. And more is available from Samsung direct or participating retailers.
- The LG V40 ThinQ is available at $200 off! That’s $749.99 at B&H Photo!
From the Carriers
A couple of carriers have revamped their offerings since Friday to bring a new round of deals for tomorrow. Some of them have already been stretched by a few days.
We should state that many of these deals require at least one new line for existing accounts and two for switching or new customers. You’ll also have to sign onto a multi-year pay-off agreement for your phone.
