Black Friday 2014 deals on phones, tablets and accessories: $100 off iPhones and iPads, $1 Galaxy S5
Say what you will about the spirit of Black Friday, November 28th, but it traditionally marks the beginning of the holiday shopping spree, and you can still find pretty good deals across the board, so why not save some cash. Whether it will be an iPhone 6 for $99, or a half-priced tablet, some of this stuff might be worth your while, so check out our hand-picked Black Friday phones, tablets and accessories bargains, which we will be continuously updating as it fits.
As usual, most good deals will be for subsidized carrier offers that bind you to a lengthy contract, but if you are due for an upgrade, or planning to get a new phone on contract, a deal's a deal anyway. Target and Best Buy just outed their Black Friday preview ads, and here's the scoop:
- LG G3 for $1 on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint with a 2-year contract, courtesy of Best Buy;
- HTC One (M8) for $0.01 with a 2-year contract, courtesy of Amazon;
- Samsung Galaxy S4 on Straight Talk Wireless for $249, courtesy of Walmart - the deal is valid for 11/27 at 8pm with the 1-Hour Guarantee;
- Nokia Lumia 635 for just $39 on prepaid, courtesy of AT&T;
- Motorola Moto X (2014) for just $359 off-contract on Cyber Monday, courtesy of Motorola;
- Apple iPhone 6 for $179.99 on contract with the same carriers - a $20 discount on the regular contract pricing, plus a $30 Target gift card
This Black Friday deal also lists the 64 GB unit $199, and the 128-gigger for $299, again with a significant discount from the regular price, if you are going to get shackled with a two-year contract anyway. Not bad at all, and this offer might spark a rivalry between the club membership retailers, which is only going to benefit us, provided you manage to grab a hold on an iPhone 6 there, as the leaflet says only 40-50 per store will be provided.
- Samsung Galaxy Tab PRO 8.4 - BestBuy has one of the best small tablets you can find at the moment for just $249.99, or you can get it as open-box certified item down to $229.99;
- Apple iPad Air 2 for its regular $499 price, but with a $140 Target gift card, bringing the trendy tablet down to $350, or all models straight-out discounted with $100 (Best Buy);
- Apple iPad Air - last year's finest Apple tablet can be now had for just $295, courtesy of Sam's Club. The catch - the deal is saved for November 15th only, and don't expect more than 15-20 units of those per store, so line up early, as the stores open 7am. An iPad Air with cellular connection will run you $429, which is again a pretty good deal; Alternatively, Target has it for the regular $399 price, but you get a $100 Target gift card to match.
- Mophie battery cases and power packs will go for $59.99 at Best Buy, instead of the usual $99.99;
- Beats Solo headphones for $79.99 at Best Buy, down from $169.99;
- Fitbit Charge tracker for $99.99 at Target, down from $129.99
- Google Chromecast for $24.99 with Target, a tenner discount from the regular price.
