Everyone wants to get in on Black Friday this year, and T-Mobile is no exception. Looks like the majority of T-Mobile’s deals will include a few extra lines you need to be aware of that tie you to the carrier, but that’s to be expected. The deals still include some of the hottest phones of the year and prices matching the lowest we’ve seen on a few other products.
Deals worth considering
Free smartphones with caveats
The first few pages of T-Mobile’s Black Friday ad are just filled with all the phones you can get for free: iPhone XR, Galaxy S9, LG G7, OnePlus 6T, T-Mobile’s new REVVL 2, etc. You’ll be getting these for free in the form of monthly bill credits over a certain period (24 months for some, 36 for others), and you’ll need to add a line and trade in a phone. If you’re already on T-Mobile or considering the switch, a modern phone for free is probably worth it.
Samsung Gear IconX true wireless earbuds: $129.99
This price matches the same deal we saw in Samsung’s Black Friday ad. It’s only about $5 better than previous deals we’ve seen, but that is an all-new low and a price that Amazon is trying to reach as well.
Apple Watch Series 4
T-Mobile’s ad is vague and imprecise, but it promises a deal on the Series 4 Apple Watch. We haven’t seen anyone else offering a deal on Apple’s newest generation smartwatch. The savings will probably come in the form of monthly bill credits like other deals, but if this is the one you’re looking for this Black Friday, T-Mobile might be the place to go. We know Best Buy and Target have Black Friday deals on the Series 3, and those prices are more precise.
Deals worth ignoring
T-Mobile’s ad isn’t exactly jam-packed with excitement, so you could probably ignore most of it if you’re looking to buy a bunch of stuff. However, if the ad has that one thing you want a deal on, keep an eye on the T-Mobile website for when they go live. I’d say the deals most worth ignoring are ones like the Skullcandy Ink’d Bluetooth earbuds for $39.99. Not necessarily because they are bad, but rather because the price is boring. The earbuds are that price on Amazon and have been for most of the year.
Most of these deals will be online and in stores. The prices go live Friday, November 16.
