Deal: get the LG G5 on monthly installments with Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, get a free $200 gift card
If you’re planning to purchase the LG G5 through a monthly installment plan with either Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, then you might as well take advantage of Best Buy’s new promotion. The retailer is offering a free $200 gift card when customers purchase the LG G5 through an EIP with one of these three carriers. 

Earlier today, we told you that Best Buy is throwing in a free $250 gift card when customers purchase the Motorola Moto Z Droid on either a two-year contract or a monthly installment plan with Verizon. As it turns out, the retailer is also offering a $200 gift card with LG G5 purchases. This time around, customers are granted a bit more flexibility as the deal is valid for three of the four largest carriers in the US. 

Getting the LG G5 on Verizon on a monthly installment plan translates into 24 monthly payments of $26 each. Sprint is asking for 24 monthly payments of $24. AT&T is asking for even less, $22.97 per month for two years. Regardless of which carrier you’re getting the LG G5 on, Best Buy will hand out a $200 gift card when you activate the phone. 

The LG G5 is far from the being the commercial success that LG’s mobile division was hoping for when it unveiled its modular smartphone back at MWC 2016 in late February. However, this doesn’t mean that the handset isn’t worth considering. The raw specs include hardware such as a 5.3-inch IPS display running at 1440 by 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, a 16MP primary camera, and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front. 

If Best Buy’s offer tempts you, here is some more info on the LG G5:

What do you guys think, will any of you guys be taking advantage of this deal?

For AT&T: $22.97 x 24 months = $551.28 + 9.9% Washington State Sales Tax = $605.85 - $200 gift card, = $405.85... The $399 ZTE Axon 7 is still a better deal. Comparable specs, no LG Quality Control Lottery, and a 2 year warranty with accident insurance.

30 months of payments at AT&T, not 24.

As stated above this phone was overpriced from the jump. So paying over 350 for this phone, when the G6 is around the corner is a rip off. Also the phone has poor battery life

Girlfriend planning on getting the G5 since buyers and sellers have all agreed it's okay to over charge for new phones. G5 has almost identical specs of the V20 and is a couple hundred dollars cheaper. It doesn't make sense to buy phones the first year they're released. Unless, of course, it's priced fairly and competitively. I'm going to pick up the Moto Z Play for myself.

Late August 2016 at Best Buy, I paid $1 out of pocket for my G5 with a Sprint 2-year contract. And I got a 35 inch LG Smart TV for free. I like my deal more than the current promotion.
