The holidays can be an expensive time, with all of the gifts, food and travel you need to pay for. Luckily, cellphone carriers always have special deals running to help you save some money, especially during this season. Here are some of the best deals that carriers are offering now.

Best iPhone deal

Winner: Sprint’s iPhone XR BOGO deal

Right now, Sprint is the only carrier offering a buy one, get one free deal on the newest iPhones. For a limited time only, if you get any of the newest iPhones — XR, XS or XS Max — on a Sprint flex lease, you’ll get another iPhone XR on a Sprint flex lease for free! If you need a phone and one of your loved ones needs a new phone, it’s the perfect time to treat you both!

Runner-up: Verizon and T-Mobile

If you only need one new iPhone, then both Verizon and T-Mobile are offering bill credits if you trade in an eligible phone. T-Mobile is offering up to $390 in bill credits when you buy an iPhone XR, XS or XS Max on a monthly installment plan, while Verizon is offering up to $300 in credits, also when you buy the phone on a monthly installment plan. Both deals require you trade in an eligible phone, and your total bill credits will be determined by the quality, age and model of your trade-in.

Best Samsung Galaxy deal

Winner: Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S9 for $9 per month

Sprint have heavily discounted both their Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ phones, saving you over $400 total. Get the Samsung Galaxy S9 on a Sprint flex lease, and you’ll pay just $9 per month for 18 months (or you can upgrade after just 12 months). That’s just over $160 total for a brand new Samsung Galaxy S9! If you prefer the larger model, the S9+ is just $14 per month.

Runner-up: T-Mobile’s free TV deal

While T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T all offer bill credits with eligible trade-in phones, T-Mobile is offering a free TV when you buy any of the new Samsung Galaxy phones — Galaxy Note9, S9, S9+, S8 or S8 Active — on a monthly installment plan and activate at least two new lines of service. And, it’s not just any TV. We’re talking a 50-inch Samsung 4K TV — that’s ultra HD, folks. Hurry, this offer is only valid while stocks last, and you must redeem your TV by the end of the year.

Best Google Pixel deal

Winner: Verizon’s $300 discount

If you want a new Google Pixel 3 or 3 XL, then trade in your current phone to Verizon to get up to $300 off your monthly bill (spread out over 24 months). Your bill credits will be based on the model of your phone and its quality.

Best deal for families

Winner: Boost Mobile

If you’re looking for a good family plan, then don’t look past Boost Mobile’s family plan offer. Four lines for $120 per month, which includes unlimited data, talk and text, and 30GB of mobile hotspot for each line!

Runner-up: Metro by T-Mobile

If you don’t need a mobile hotspot but still want an unlimited plan for your family, then Metro by T-Mobile’s family plan is for you. For just $100 per month for four lines, you’ll get unlimited data, talk and text all on T-Mobile’s fast and reliable network. There is a catch with this deal, though. It’s offered in-store only, so you’ll need to head to your closest Metro store to take advantage of this offer.

Best value

Winner: Sprint’s FREE Unlimited Plan

Yes, you read that correctly. Sprint has an unlimited plan that’s free! Well, for a year anyway, but still, that’s going to save you hundreds of dollars. You may have heard of this deal before since it’s been running all year long, but it’s still one of the best deals around. Sprint’s Unlimited Plan is usually priced at $60 per month for unlimited data, talk and text, but Sprint is offering it to new customers who bring their own phone for absolutely nothing — for a year.

Runner-up: Mint Mobile’s Discounted Plan

If you don’t need unlimited data (and it’ll surprise you how many of us don’t), then Mint Mobile has arguably one of the best cellphone plan deals this holiday season. For just $20, you’ll get three months of service with unlimited talk and text, and 5GB of full-speed data per month. That’s as little as $6.67 per month! What makes this offer great is that your service will be on T-Mobile’s network, which is known to outperform Sprint’s network.
