Sprint has released their Black Friday sales information online, and the highlight is an online only deal to get a Samsung Galaxy S3 for just $50, with new 2-year agreement or upgrade of course. Sprint has activated the countdown timer on their shopping page, with just a little over 14 hours to go before the deals are available. Like many other companies, Sprint is bringing the Black Friday sales early, with sales actually beginning on Thanksgiving day. Although the Galaxy S3 deal may get the most attention, Sprint is offering a variety of other sales that consumers may be interested in as well.
Sprint Black Friday Sales Official, Match Leaked Information
The announcements haven’t been particularly earth shattering, especially considering that a leak of Sprint Black Friday deals last week turned out to be spot on. There’s no need to stand in line at your local retail store or big-box shop either, since the deals have been announced for online, telephone orders, and in-store. The deals will continue even longer at the retail locations though, as Sprint stores will keep the deals rolling for an additional day.
Although the slashing from $200 to $50 on the S3 is big news, another highlight on the site is the LG Viper, a 4G LTE device they’re letting go for free with new service or upgrade. This phone features a 4.5-inch display, Google Wallet access, a 5MP camera and Android Ice Cream Sandwich on board.
Consumers can also pick up the Nexus and Galaxy Victory 4G phones for just $50, but can expect to get their money back in a mail-in rebate. The Optimus Elite is also available for free right now with new service contract. Phones aren’t the only things on sale, accessories are getting price drops as well. Several portable audio devices like the Jawbone JamBox, JBL headphones, and JBL FlipBox are all on sale.
Sprint has been on a relative roll lately, following their recent purchase agreement for about 10-percent of the US Cellular spectrum and customer base in the Midwest. This upgrade of their coverage in primarily rural markets and smaller metros like St. Louis and Kansas City may mean bigger Black Friday sales for them in the region. Some customers and consumers are already grumbling that they expected greater savings this holiday season from the telco company, stating that newer devices should also have shared in the discounts.
