If you’ve been eyeing a smartphone upgrade this holiday season, shop and save at Verizon’s Black Friday event. Deals on smartphones and electronics start online on Thanksgiving, so you can sign up for a new phone between bites of turkey.
Verizon 2016 Black Friday deals
New and current subscribers can pick up the latest Android smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Google Pixel, for as low as $10 a month over 24 months.
Other deals include tech gifts such as tablets, headphones, wearables and mobile accessories.
Here’s a peek at some other Black Friday highlights:
- iPad mini 2 for $99.99 after two-year activation (save $300).
- Fitbit Charge 2 with $25 Visa gift card for $129.99 (save $20).

Read the fine print before signing up for any Black Friday smartphone or tablet promo. Most transactions require you to pay an activation fee and taxes at checkout, plus deal prices are available only for qualifying customers.
Be mindful — your generous gift list might result in a bit of credit card balance. In the 2015 holiday season, 44% of American shoppers incurred debt and took about two months to pay it off. If you’re part of this crowd, make sure to avoid paying interest with the right credit card. NerdWallet’s list of best credit cards for holiday shopping includes cards with 0% interest periods that may last from 9 to 21 months. There are plenty of reasons to stress over the holidays; don’t let credit card interest be one of them.
