As America continues to prep for the shopping hysteria that is Black Friday later this week, Sprint didn’t want to feel left out of the festivities and announced a few deals of its own.
Starting with the headline-grabber, if you activate an LG G4 on Sprint, seemingly regardless of how you do so, Sprint will give you a free 24-inch LG HDTV worth $180. That’s not too shabby of a deal, considering the excellent smartphone that is the G4 and the holidays are usually a ripe time for phone activations, anyway. Throw in the TV, which you can simply give to someone as a gift if you have enough TVs at home, and you can see why this looks to be Sprint’s most interesting Black Friday deal.
Elsewhere, the United States’ fourth-largest carrier will offer 50 percent off the lease of the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6. Normally $18 a month on a lease, the discount means the Galaxy S6 can now be leased for $9 a month. Maintaining the Samsung theme, Sprint will offer customers a year of Amazon Prime for free if they activate a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, or Galaxy Note 5. As such, you can theoretically combine the two Samsung deals if a Galaxy S6 is what you’re after.
Finally, Sprint looks to slash the prices of a number of wearables. The heftiest discount belongs to the Garmin Vivoactive, which normally goes for $250 and will sell for $170 later this week. Here are the other discounts:
|Product||Normal price||Discounted price|
|Fitbit Charge HR||$150||$120|
|Garmin Vivofit 2||$100||$70|
|Withings Activite Pop||$150||$130|
Finally, Sprint will offer the LG Tone Pro 750 for $40, a healthy discount from the $70 price tag it normally carries.
All of these deals will go live on Thanksgiving, so you have some time to think about whether they are for you or someone you know. As we usually advise with other carriers, make sure that Sprint is at least somewhat prevalent in your area when it comes to network coverage. The last thing you’d want is to get an LG G4 for a loved one, only for them to consistently receive one bar of service.
