Today at it’s Holiday Preview event in New York, Best Buy announced a bold phone selling strategy for the month of October. Beginning the first of October, Best Buy will be offering 4 phones, one for each carrier, free of charge. The phones will, of course, require a new two-year agreement.
This following Friday Best Buy is starting off the Free Phone Fridays promotion with the following 4 phones:
- Samsung Fascinate (Verizon)
- BlackBerry Curve (Sprint)
- HTC Aria (AT&T)
- Samsung Gravity 3 (T-Mobile)
Interestingly enough, each week this promotion will feature at least one high-end, in-demand smart phone, this is very good news for someone looking for a great deal on a new Android device.
“We are seeing an amazing amount of curiosity and demand for mobile phones right now, especially smart phones, and we want to give consumers another reason to visit Best Buy Mobile in October,” said Scott Anderson, the head of merchandising for Best Buy Mobile. “While we already offer a number of free mobile phone options for our customers every day of the year, launching ‘Free Phone Fridays’ with a great smart phone like the Samsung Fascinate shows that Best Buy Mobile is serious and committed to bringing the best mobile technology and best deals to our customers.”[Via Best Buy Blog]
