HTC's Black Friday deals include a free HTC One A9 with Apple iPhone trade-in
HTC is having a rough year. From a tumbling stock price to a decline in its financial position, the company has failed to electrify the industry with any of its phone releases in 2015. With the year winding down, HTC has announced its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. One deal in particular can net you a free HTC One A9, the latest release from the manufacturer.

A mid-range handset, the HTC One A9 is priced at $499 off-contract. If you purchase one between November 26 and December 2, HTC will send you a rebate depending on which phone you send in to them. Send in to HTC the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s or the Apple iPhone 6s Plus and you will get back from HTC the $499 cost of the One A9. In essence, you are trading in any one of the iPhone models for the HTC handset. And since the HTC One A9 looks like the twin brother of those iPhone models, no one will be able to tell that you switched.

If you mail in a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, you will get a rebate from HTC for $200. Send HTC the LG G3 or LG G4, and you will receive a rebate in the amount of $100. Those deals are also valid from November 26th through December 2nd.

There are also other deals like the one offered for the HTC One M9. The handset is 40% off from November 30th through December 2nd. If a tablet is what you are looking for, from November 26th through the 27th the Nexus 9 will be priced at a 40% discount. In addition, the first 500 who purchase the 32GB model will receive a free Logitech Keyboard.

From November 28th through November 29th, all accessories will cost you 40% less. And HTC is taking a whopping 60% off of the RE Camera from November 30th through December 2nd. The first 900 who take advantage of the deal will receive a free RE Protection Pack. 

Perhaps HTC can get a short-term pop to its top line with this sale. Considering the discounts, the manufacturer probably won't get much of a boost to its net profit.

Since Htc can't make money off their own phones looks like they are getting into the resale market. So far this is the lamest Black Friday deal I've seen

I'd go for an A9, gotta play with it first. You young uns need to learn specs aren't everything, the M8 was solid gold, but I found I used the headphone jack more than the speakers. The new amp in the A9 sounds like it will serve me well. Samsung lost me when they gimped the note 5, I'd love the 6S plus, but the prospect of a dual camera 7 is too appealing, keep in mind when Apple and HTC shared patents, they suddenly both had two tone flashes, apple now has Zoes, the A9 looks like a 6. It only makes sense Apple uses the two camera system from the M8.

Lol you can get more than $200 on Craigslist for the GS6 and iPhones resale value are ridiculous. Good luck HTC.

40% off an M9 isn't that bad of a deal. That makes it $390 in the US which is quite a competitive price for all that it packs.

15. fyah_king unregistered

$100 for my G4? Lol, htc you guys are tripping.

HTC will resell your Galaxy S6 for at least $400 and make a nice $200 profit. HTC maybe should just give up and go into the phone resale business.

HTC would probably make more money re-selling the used iPhones.

Ummmmm. No! Had a M8 for about six months before it became my mom's phone but I was totally upset with how the camera scked. Since the M8 they still havent released something worth my money. They need to step it up in 2016.

I wish they kept the promo $400 price through the holidays, I feel like that's a better deal than any of this. Of coarse $400 as the final retail price would have been even more appropriate.

$200 for a Samsung Galaxy S6? This is not a good deal. Especially because the Samsung Galaxy S6 is way better than the HTC One A9...

30. shinywindow unregistered

And way better than Krapple as well..

Unfortunately you are so desperate HTC. I don't know what happened to you, but I am confident you have the worst management after that eflop.
