Every year, we have brought you the absolute best deals over the entire week of Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Some of our links are currently live, however some will not be working until the day of the actual sales.
We at Wireless Mobile News know what kinds of deals you are looking for and will be scouring the ads starting Monday November 24 to get you ready for Thursday Thanksgiving, through Black Friday right through to Cyber Monday and Cyber Week. We even have information about Verizon's new "Connection Day."
The best deals for we think there will be new phone models will be the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, Moto G and Droid Turbo. Be sure to check all our Black Friday through Cyber Monday -week deals, we will add more daily.
Best Buys at Best Buy
Probably one of the best places to get wireless and tablet deals without waiting in line will be Best Buy. In fact, Best Buy will start Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving. November 27 at BestBuy.com, Thursday, starting early in the morning. Stores open Thursday at 5:00 pm, however since you can buy things online earlier, it could save you time to order online, often you can pick the item up in the store when thinks are not crazy of have it deliver.
Our source says that Samsung Galaxy S5 will be $1 with a two-year agreement across major carriers as a Doorbuster deal which will also be online. If you go to the Best Buy website, today that deal is not live yet if you look at Samsung Galaxy S5, the price still shows $199.99 with a contract. We're sure there will be good Best Buy weekly cell phone deals
We think there will be some great deals with rebates for the LG G3 for many carriers. The LG G3 has a 5.5 screen 5" Quad HD (2560 X 1440) IPS and 13MP camera.
The other big sale item will be $100 off the iPad Air 2 with a starting price of $399. This is very unusual if you buy an iPad Air at Target, you get gift cards. Fo saving real money, gift cards require you to buy more merchandise, then you get the credit card bill later. This deal will not start until Thursday morning after midnight Central Time. Last year, Best Buy threw in many extra gift cards to be used at Best Buy that sweetened their deals. Best Buy deals start according to their headquarters time zone.
NOTE: The DEALS at Best Buy will not be live until very late Wednesday!
AT&T Jolly Daily Deals
AT&T usually has a different type of sale every day from Black Friday through Cyber Week, we don't have the exact per day deals yet. The deals are generally in white or red for one cent with a contract. AT&T has an added bonus this year and has waived the activation fee with online orders (a $40 value until Dec 31, 2014).
The new bonus this year is for NEXT customers who pay for their phones with their plans if you switch to AT&T- get a $150 bill credit (when you add a new line of service with a smartphone on NEXT. Restrictions apply.) AT&T frequently gives $100 off all tablets (with a new 2-year data plan at AT&T.).
Right now AT&T has $100 Off when you purchase Samsung smartphones with free shipping, however, we would wait until closer to Black Friday to see what the best deal will be.
NOTE: More AT&T Deals will be updated later.
For Samsung Galaxy S5, buyers Best Buy seems like the best deal, yet. However if you really want the premier Droid Turbo Get $100 or more VZW giftcard when you trade in your old smartphone for a new Droid Turbo.

T-Mobile usually offers some kind of special in-store deals the weekend before Thanksgiving. The T-Mobile plans recently knocked down the data four line plan for $100 to one gigabyte per line. There will a Cyber Monday sale with free Shipping We think that as far as getting a discount on a phone we will see some discounts on the web for models of phones that are not the most recent but adequate such as LG Optimus L90 bundle that includes four phones for $360 and SIM cards.
Where T-Mobile gives you great deals is not by the phone price but they offer international data roaming to many countries, free music streaming and free international texting to select countries. The theme we see for Black Friday through Cyber Monday is $49 off some great phones.
