2021 Black Friday Tech Guide

Nov 25, 2021 •

Black Friday is the best time of year, and tech is where you’ll find some of the weekend’s best deals. If you’re in search of a new phone or accessory, here are the best Black Friday deals on iPhones, Galaxys, earbuds and more.

Free IPhone 12 Mini From Verizon

Verizon is offering the most affordable iPhone deal of the weekend, if not the past year-plus. Sign up for one of the carrier’s service contracts, and they’ll provide an iPhone 12 Mini at no cost to you. This isn’t the fanciest iPhone model, but where else can you get a brand-new iPhone for free?

Notably, Verizon’s iPhone 12 Mini deal doesn’t require any trade-in. You could even make money on the deal if you have an old phone to sell. Get a quote for your old phone from us at MLG Cash, and it might even be enough to cover your first month’s payment on the contract.

The free model comes with 64 gigabytes of data, but you can upgrade memory for an additional $5 per month.

IPhone 13 and $449 Value From Verizon

Verizon is also running a deal on the iPhone 13 that makes sense if you prefer prepaid plans or want earbuds. You’ll have to pay for the iPhone 13 in full and upfront, but the phone comes with $200 in gift cards and free AirPods Pro.

That’s a $449 value without signing any multi-year contract. Moreover, you can use those $200 in gift cards to buy other accessories that are on sale or to cover a few months of prepaid service.

This again doesn’t require any trade-in, which is perfect if you’re getting a first smartphone or have a current one to sell. Depending on your current phone’s model, we may be able to give you another several hundred dollars to put toward the iPhone 13. Even older models could increase your total savings over $500 with the other bonuses that Verizon is offering.

IPhone 13 Series Sale at AT&T

AT&T has a more traditional sale on iPhone 13 models. The deals at AT&T aren’t as stellar as Verizon’s free phone/goodies, and you may find better prices on the iPhone 13 elsewhere. This is perhaps the first time that any place has offered the entire iPhone 13 series on sale, though, and it’s noteworthy just for that.

AT&T likewise doesn’t require a trade-in to get the sale prices. Sell your current phone, and your out-of-pocket cost could be even lower than the offered sale.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G Sale From Samsung

Samsung is offering the best-to-date price on the company’s innovative Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G. Even with a sale price of $1,549.99, the phone is one of the most expensive smartphones on the market. That price is $400 off of the original $1,949.99 price, and Smasung is including a wireless charger and Galaxy Buds 2 for free.

Since Samsung is directly offering this Galaxy Z Fold 3 5, there’s no need to worry about trade-ins or contracts. Sell your current phone to further defray the Fold 3’s price, and then get an unlocked model that’s compatible with any carrier. This is a particularly enticing offer if you want a great (and foldable) Android at a solid discount, but would like to keep your current wireless plan.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G With Chromebook

The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is the series’s feature model, and has plenty of capabilities as such. For Black Friday, Samsung is offering a sale price of $1,099.99 and a free Chromebook 4. That’s $420 off of the phone’s original price, and the Chromebook 4 retails for another $229.99.

You’re saving $650 in total on this deal, which is nearly half of the Note 20 Ultra’s original price. Once again , this doesn’t include whatever you can sell your current phone for or require signing a contract.

If you have an elementary to high school-age child at home who needs a new computer, the inclusion of a Chromebook 4 makes this an especially attractive deal.
