Sprint looks to beat the Black Friday madness with discounts and deals aplenty

HTC Bolt review
Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends
With retailers seemingly announcing their Black Friday deals earlier and earlier with each passing year, it is not a huge shocker that Sprint decided to do the same this year, with some deals available now.

Starting with the highlight, Sprint will take 50 percent off the HTC Bolt on November 24 and 25. Part of the problem with the Bolt was its high price tag, an issue made more pronounced by its aging hardware and more powerful smartphones selling for much cheaper, so this discount that comes so soon after its announcement comes as a welcome surprise.

Moving on to more deals, if you buy a Samsung Galaxy S7, you get another one for “free” starting on Friday. To take advantage of this deal, you will need to be on Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom Plan with one new line of service, with both phones needing to be activated with 24 monthly installments. Keeping with the Samsung theme, from Friday through November 28, picking up either the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge nets you a free Galaxy Tab E.

Sprint looks to also give LG some love, though those two deals are more entertainment focused. The first LG deal gets you a free LG 43-inch 4K UHD Smart LED TV when you buy the V20. If you think the V20 is too large and want to go for something smaller, getting the G5 nets you a free LG 32-inch LED HD Smart TV. Both of these deals start November 24 and go through November 27.

If you are not on the hunt for a smartphone, however, Sprint will also offer two Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 Bluetooth speakers, which normally go for $450 each, for $150 each or 12 monthly payments of $12.50 for each speaker. The carrier also discounted the Parrot Swing MiniDrone, bringing the price down from $140 to $120. Sprint also offers the GoPro Hero 5 Black, as well as the Mophie Powerstation Mini 3,000 mAh and the Special Edition BB-8 Droid with Force Band for $400, $30, and $200, respectively. As is the case with devices, accessories can be purchased either outright or through monthly installments.
