As with all things 2020, Black Friday is a little different this year. Companies have unleashed a bunch of their deals early with the expectation that many are going to be doing Black Friday online.

Many cellphone carriers have followed the trend, releasing early Black Friday deals that are set to extend through Cyber Monday and even further. These are some of our favorite Black Friday deals.

iPhone 12 deals

The iPhone 12 series is the latest of all the big cellphone releases, and because it is the iPhone, it’s the biggest. All of the major cellphone carriers are offering big trade-in deals for the iPhone 12 devices.

AT&T and Verizon are offering the iPhone 12 mini for free or $700 off any other iPhone 12, while T-Mobile is also offering the iPhone 12 and 12 mini for free or up to $830 off the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

Three free months with Mint Mobile

Mint Mobile has been getting a ton of attention lately. Clearly, they’re benefiting from an increase in promotional budget — but let’s be honest, also because actor Ryan Reynolds is part-owner and pretty much official spokesperson.

Mint is set to get even more attention with this great Black Friday deal. Basically, when you buy a three-month cellphone plan with Mint Mobile, you’ll get the following three months free. It’s pretty hard to beat free service.

Free phones from Credo Mobile

Credo is another mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) with some hot deals this holiday shopping season.

For a limited time, you can get any of the phones under $400 from Credo for free.

Smartphones under $400 might not be the best around, but there are at least two which are actually very good devices.

We’re talking about the latest iPhone SE and the Google Pixel 4a. You can get either of these phones for free with Credo.

Huge discount on the Samsung Galaxy S20+

Just when you thought you weren’t going to see one of the major carriers on this list again, here comes Verizon with another big Black Friday deal.

Get your hands on Samsung’s Galaxy S20+ and instantly save $400. Trade-in an eligible device and save an additional $550.

Plus, just for switching to Verizon, you’ll get a $400 Verizon e-gift card. All that adds up to a bunch of savings.

Big discount on all Reach Mobile plans

Reach Mobile already offers some of the best prices for cellphone plans, but this Black Friday you can save even more.

First, Reach is offering $15 off all of their plans for the first three months of service.

Second, Reach will credit you $5 per month for 24 months, saving you an additional $120 over that time.
