How to find the best phone deal on Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2019
Choose your phones
Choose what you want before Cyber Monday that want you can stick to your guns rather than be tempted by too good to be true deals. In previous year brands have tried to tempt people but slashing prices on cheaper phones.
Make sure you look up the features beforehand. What do you want most? A high spec camera? Look into the battery life, screen, design, size and camera and weigh up your options. You may see a phone with a great camera perfect for that Instagram shot, but not clock it’s terrible battery life if you make a hasty Black Friday purchase.
New or best spec?
When choosing what you want ask yourself whether you want the latest generation. You may have settled on a brand and model, but there’s the question of the generation – older phones drop in price when a new gen is released making it a better option when looking for deals. If you’re ok with that then you can save even more on Cyber Monday. The same works the other way, check when a phone was released so you’re not getting a cheap deal on an out-of-date phone.
Look for special offers. If you and a friend want to get new phones you could snap up a two-for-one offer. We saw these deals last year and they came with real savings, up to half price in some cases.
4G or 5G?
EE is likely to go head to head with Vodafone when it comes to 5G offers. The tech is very new so you’re not very likely to find unlimited deals, but you could get a decent phone like the OnePlus 7 Pro or Samsung Galaxy S10 or Note 9 with 5G and 30-60GB data at a slightly lower price. If you were looking at 5G anyway it’s worth waiting and getting something within the ballpark of £55 to £75 with a phone included.
Where can I find the best phone deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
We’ll update this page with the best EE offers, but your best bet for a deal will probably come from online retailers outside of the main networks.
