HTC's Black Friday deals include a free HTC One A9 with Apple iPhone trade-in
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.
