Shoppers looking for a new Samsung Android smartphone can find tons of deals on Black Friday. Whether it’s the Galaxy S6 you’re seeking or the Note 5, several retailers are offering deep discounts on a wide range of devices from the South Korean carrier.
In many cases the S6 can be had as low as one cent with a two-year agreement. The catch is Samsung is also expected to release its next iteration of the handset in early 2016 -- the so-called Galaxy S7. But if you’re a smartphone user that isn’t concerned about staying on the bleeding edge, it’s hardly an issue. Here’s a look at where you can find deals on Samsung’s Galaxy S6 smartphones during Black Friday 2015.
If you’re looking for a new Samsung smartphone, get a $250 Best Buy gift card on Black Friday with the purchase or lease and activation of a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge or S6 Edge Plus. The S6 and S6 Edge are also available as low as $1 with a two-year contract for AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. The S6 Edge is available for $149.99 under a two-year contract, a $200 savings.

Customers that purchase a Galaxy S6 and sign up for a device installment plan through Walmart can grab $150 in savings as well as a $100 Walmart gift card. One thing to keep in mind is the savings comes in the form of bill credit through Verizon or AT&T. Walmart will also throw in a free Bluetooth speaker, a $99 value. Reservations for phone appointments start at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, with smartphone activations starting at 9 p.m.
Shoppers can purchase a 32GB Galaxy S6 or Note 5 for one cent with a two-year plan through Verizon or Sprint. Alternatively, qualified customers opting for a device installment plan can get either device on Sprint, AT&T or Verizon for $0 down and a $250 Target gift card. Customers can also pick up a 16GB 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab A tablet with a free $30 Target gift card for $229.99, a $70 savings. Target opens its doors 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving. But the Galaxy S6 deals won’t be available until 9 p.m.
The warehouse retailer says it plans to have some discounts on a number of smartphones such as the S6 and S6 Edge. But it isn’t expected to reveal the exact deals until Thanksgiving day. In addition to Galaxy smartphones, Sam’s Club is selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with 8-inch display for $179. The 9-inch version is also available for $229. Sam’s Club deals start online on Thanksgiving day. But in-store deals don’t begin until 7 a.m. local time on Black Friday.
