A new phone is one of the most important tech investments you can make. You probably use it more times each day than any other device, so you’ll want to pick one that’s just right for you. You could spend hours scouring the web looking for the best offers, so we’ve done the legwork for you. We’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best phone deals available to help you save both time and money.

We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now because carrier-specific deals would grow this list into an encyclopedia. Some of these deals are on the international versions of select devices, which may mean slight variations in specs and affect network compatibility. We’ve made note of the international devices but make sure to check carefully before you buy.

Featured deal: Save $100 on the Google Pixel 5

Google Pixel 5 Best Buy Deal

There seems to be a recent trend of offering savings on new flagship phones right as they launch, and it’s music to our ears. The most recent example is that you can get $100 off the already-affordable Google Pixel 5 through Best Buy. That means you’ll pay just $599.99 as long as you activate the phone to the Verizon network. It might not have the very highest specs on the market, but if you’re a Pixel fan, you won’t be disappointed.

For full disclosure, there are two alternatives to this deal you may want to note. Firstly, if you’re happy to trade in your old phone, you could save a lot more directly from Verizon. If you have an eligible device in good condition and you sign up for an eligible plan then Verizon will offer you $550 off the retail price of the Pixel 5. If you’re also switching to the network then you’ll save up to $250 more, meaning you can effectively get the phone for free.

Willing to wait it out? As you can see here, Best Buy has also teased us all with the fact that the $100 savings on the Pixel 5 will become $200 savings in its Black Friday sale. We all know that Black Friday promotions often start well before the actual day, so this could mean tomorrow, next week, or on the day itself. All we can say at this point is that if you’re patient enough and keep your eyes peeled the Pixel 5 will temporarily get cheaper soon.

The Google Pixel 5 may not be the high-end Pixel we were expecting, but it's a pretty compelling mid-range option. You can save yourself $100 from Best Buy if you're willing to activate the Pixel 5 to Verizon on purchase, or trade-in your old phone and switch to Verizon to effectively get it for free.
