Best Buy Mobile sure has a way of enticing smartphone buyers. If the pre-order options, exclusive products and no-mail-in-rebate deals aren’t enough, it’s kicking things up a bit in October. The mega retailer has just announced Free Phone Fridays, a fun alliteration for an even more fun promotion: in the month of October, Best Buy Mobile will be chopping the price of selected phones down to nothing for every Friday during the month.
To get things kicked off on October 1, Best Buy Mobile will be offering the following phones for free with contracts:
- Samsung Fascinate (Verizon)
- BlackBerry Curve (Sprint)
- HTC Aria (AT&T)
- Samsung Gravity 3 (T-Mobile)
Not a bad way to start off the promotion. Best Buy says:
“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.”
While the initial selection isn’t all that bad, I’m curious to see which phones will be offered for free for the rest of the month. Best Buy could do well to offer up one of the Droid phones, or perhaps the Captivate on AT&T or maybe even the G2 for T-Mobile.
