Black Friday Ad Leak: Sprint $50 Samsung Galaxy S III


NerdWallet’s Black Friday coverage begins with the first ad leak of the year. We’ll be writing up all the Black Friday 2012 ads and also keeping on top of the relevant Black Friday news.

Sprint will be selling the Samsung Galaxy S III for only $49.99 with a two year agreement on Black Friday, down from the current price of $199.99. This is the first leaked ad of the season, and it’s a good one. The stock of $49.99 killer smartphones is sure to be limited, so if this is up your alley, plan ahead.

It’s also likely that this isn’t the only good phone deal that Sprint will be offering on the 23rd. Last year, Sprint rolled out a Nexus S 4G from Google and a Samsung Replenish both for free. They continued the deep deals with 4 other discounted phones, a Samsung Conquer 4G for $49.99, a HTC Evo 3D for $99.99, a HTC Evo View 4G for $249.99, and a BlackBerry Playbook for $199.99.

Sprint Black Friday 2011 Discounts Original 2011 price Black Friday 2011 Price % off
Nexus S 4G from Google $99.99 $0.00 N/A
Samsung Replenish $0.00 $0.00 N/A
Samsung Conquer 4G $99.99 $49.99 50%
HTC Evo 3D $199.99 $99.99 50%
HTC Evo View 4G $399.99 $249.99 37.5%
BlackBerry Playbook $499.99 $199.99 60%
Average price: $216.66 $99.99 53.7%


So what does this all mean? For starters, Sprint never offered a phone at 75% off last year, so the deeply discounted Samsung Galaxy S III might be the best sale this year. But with the amount of phones that Sprint marked down last Black Friday, we can be pretty sure to see some more nice models come down for this year’s Black Friday. The items that Sprint discounted last year were a solid mix of top tier gadgets and low cost phones, so again we can guess that we’ll see a decent medley of different models in different price ranges. Stay tuned for more updates.

    This company charges for customer service. To speak to them is a task in itself as their automated line keeps you on the phone forever and you are charged even if u call outside of their hours. I called on Saturday at 8:47 central time which is supposedly their time zone and the automated system says they are says they are open and then a recording says they’re closed. If u lose your card you cant even pay to have it sent express, they have to judge whether or not your situation warrants them sending it with their “express” service which is 3-5 business days. Since when is it not an emergency for anyone to not have access to money?
