The best Black Friday 2017 phone deals at Best Buy, Walmart, Verizon, and more

If youre shopping for a new phone this weekend, be prepared to read some fine print. The days of straightforward discounts are over. Instead, youre now looking at deals that require you to sign up for frequently confusing installment or leasing plans, with the discounts paying out over the course up to two years.

Thats certainly not as nice as just getting a price cut up front. But if you were planning to buy your phone on a monthly payment plan anyway, theres not much to take issue with here. On Black Friday, youll be able to save several hundred dollars on some of this years top phones. You can check out this years best discounts below.

WALMART
Buy a new iPhone or Galaxy phone on an AT&T or Verizon installment plan, get a free $300 Walmart gift card. For iPhones, the offers applies to the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X. For Galaxy phones, it applies to the S8, S8 Plus, and Note 8.

The year-old Galaxy S7 (32GB) is also on sale for $299 (usually $499).

BEST BUY

Buy an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus for $200 off on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint installment plans.

Buy an iPhone 6S for $150 off on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint installment plans.

Buy a Moto Z2 Play for $191.76 on Verizon installment plan (usually $408).

Buy a Moto G Plus (64GB) for $225 (usually $300).

Buy a Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, or Galaxy Note 8 on on a Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint installment plan, get a free $300 Target gift card.

VERIZON
Verizon is offering 50 percent off the Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, and Moto Z2 Force when you sign up for an unlimited plan.

Its also offering 35 percent off the Pixel 2 XL, Galaxy S8 Plus, and the Note 8 for those who sign up for an unlimited plan.

And finally, itll be offering $100 off some Android phones above $400 when bought on an installment plan. Weve reached out to Verizon to find out which phones qualify.

SPRINT
Lease a Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, S8 Active, or Note 8 for 50 percent off. Be aware that the discount applies to the 18-month lease period only. If you want to pay off and purchase the phone, youll have to pay full price on the remaining quarter of it.

Lease a Moto Z2 Force for 50 percent off. Like the Samsung deal, this applies to the 18-month lease period only.

Lease an iPhone 8 or X for $350 off. No additional gimmicks here, though youll need to remain subscribed to Sprint for 18 months to get the total discount.

T-MOBILE
This is hard to really qualify as a deal, but T-Mobile will give you $300 off an iPhone X if you trade in another recent iPhone. The discount will be doled out over 24 monthly payments.

Otherwise, T-Mobile is primarily doing buy-one-get-one deals, which require opening a new line of service (something that wont apply to most people). But if youve been planning to do that, nows the time: the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Galaxy S8, S8 Plus, S8 Active, and Note 8, and the LG V30 and G6 are all eligible. Buy one, open another line of service, and the second phone will be free. Critically, though, both phones have to be on installment plans, so youll have to stick with T-Mobile for two years to fully get the discount.

AT&T
AT&T hasnt announced its Black Friday deals yet.

HTC
Buy an HTC U11 for $599 ($50 off) and get a free pair of JBL Reflect Aware USB-C earbuds.

MOTOROLA
Buy a Moto Z2 Play for $400 (usually $500).

All Moto Mods are on sale for 25 percent off.

Buy a Moto G5 Plus with 32GB of storage for $200 ($30 off) or with 64GB of storage for $230 ($70 off).

LG
Buy an LG V30 or V30 Plus, get up to $400 off another LG product.

SAMSUNG
Buy a Galaxy S8 or Note 8, get a free Gear 360.

MICROSOFT
Get $150 off the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus starting Thursday, November 23rd.

GOOGLE
Google hasnt announced Black Friday deals just yet, but Pixel discounts will be available through Verizon.

APPLE
Apple doesnt seem to have deals of its own this year (or it hasnt announced them yet). Instead, youll have to go to retailers to see what kind of deals theyre offering on the iPhone.
