The Best Cell Phone Deals This Holiday Season
December is a great time to get a new cell phone. Many companies announce deals that are just as good or even better than Black Friday to take advantage of the Christmas shopping season.
If you are in the market for a new cell phone, it is worth taking a look at all of the new models that have been released as well as the deals that carriers are offering. Every year at this time a new batch of iPhone models from Apple and Android models from Samsung, Google, LG and One Plus are announced. This means that these phones have special launch pricing that you can sign up for which allows you to get a great discount on a premium phone.
If you are looking for a more budget friendly model, then you are also in luck. Since manufacturers release their brand new flagship phones during the holiday season, old phones from previous model years get a big discount too. Some of the best models from 2019 such as the Google Pixel 4, Apple iPhone 11 and Samsung Galaxy S10 are currently available at a deep discount.
Here are some of the best cell phone deals to know if you are in the market to upgrade or buy a new phone.
