It appears that Sprint’s Black Friday special offer for families or groups was a hit, because the wireless carrier has decided to extend the deal. There is no word yet on how long it will be extended, but it is a good bet it will only be for a limited time.
Last Friday, consumers in the United States bought $1.2 billion worth items through their smartphones and tablet devices. This marks the first time ever in the history of the American retail industry that purchases done via mobile devices breached the $1 billionth mark, as pointed out by a report published by Adobe over the weekend. This year’s Black Friday also managed to hit another milestone, with its overall sales (not only via mobile) increasing 21 percent to $3.34 billion, the first time that sales have exceeded $3 billion. And when combining the sales of Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day, Americans spent $5.27 billion.
Sprint has announced its latest Black Friday deal and it may be its best one yet. In this newest offer, mobile users who decide to sign up for Unlimited Freedom get to have their third, fourth, and fifth lines of service free of charge. That’s three free lines with unlimited voice calls, text messaging, and data. So for a family or group consisting of five members, that means enjoying all the video streaming, music streaming, social media, and web surfing they can without having to worry about their data allowances being consumed or overage fees.
Two of the biggest phone makers in the planet right now have decided to join in on the Black Friday frenzy. Apple will be conducting a one day event this week, while its fierce rival Samsung will also be offering customers generous discounts on a range of mobile devices and other electronic products.
This year, it appears that mobile virtual network operator Republic Wireless is not too keen on Black Friday. Instead, the carrier will be unleashing Taco Tuesday, which will see the MVNO offer a range of special deals November 29th (the Tuesday right after Black Friday, hence the name). It might turn out to be a wise decision, especially for somebody like Republic Wireless, who might be better off choosing its battles carefully. Year after year, the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy is getting more crowded, and for an MVNO, offering special deals a day after the storm might not be so bad.
Remember the T-Mobileweekend special deal that offers a couple of lines of service absolutely free of charge for current and new subscribers? Well, the major US wireless carrier has decided to extend the promo until Tuesday of this week. T-Mobile had originally launched this offer just for the weekend, but it appears that the deal is still good for two more days (officially, it will end on November 22nd at 11:59 PM).
Apart from T-Mobile, another major US wireless carrier, Sprint, is also announcing its Black Friday deals this week. Sprint’s offers cover smartphone devices and mobile accessories, and range from buy one get one deals to generous discounts and item giveaways. Black Friday may still be a week away, but it may be a good idea to check out the deals in advance.
T-Mobile has officially announced its Black Friday offers for this year. More than a couple of weeks ago, the wireless carrier’s upcoming Black Friday deals were leaked in the interwebs. Although the offers indicated in the leak were not official yet, it did give customers a bit of an idea of what to expect. But now that T-Mobile has made it official, let the speculation end and the buying begin.
T-Mobile is at it again. After introducing a buy one get one special offer for Samsung’s Galaxy S7 last weekend, the major US wireless carrier is now readying a new promotional deal for this coming weekend. This time around, the mobile operator will be offering a couple of lines of service for families, absolutely free of charge.
Strictly speaking, there is still over a couple of weeks to go before Black Friday arrives, but HTC has decided to launch its special offers early. This is clearly an effort by the Taiwanese phone maker to get a jump on the competition, and in the process, further fuel the excitement of consumers who can not wait for Thanksgiving weekend to start.
