The only thing better than scoring a cool gadget is scoring a cool gadget at a discount. So of course we just had to pass along this information regarding some hot deals that Best Buy will be running this weekend for smartphones and tablets.
As noted by CNET, starting today, the electronics retailer will be offering double the trade-in value on mobile devices for folks purchasing a smartphone from one of the 3 major carriers. Additionally, it’s also taking $100 off select iPhone models…
To get double trade-in for a device, simply bring in a working, non-cracked cell phone to your local Best Buy, and the retailer will give you double the phone’s value. You must, however, be purchasing a smartphone from Verizon, AT&T or Sprint.
As for the $100 iPhone discount, it looks like it’s just for the 32GB iPhone 5 (black or white) model on Sprint. It’s a good deal, considering you get a 32GB for the price of a 16GB. But it also means you’d have to sign a 2-year contract with Sprint.
Best Buy is also running promotions on a wide range of other devices this weekend, including Microsoft’s Surface Pro, which is $100 off. The retailer is also still knocking $200 off select MacBook Pro models, and another $100 for .edu students.
If you’re going to act, do it fast. It sounds like most of these deals are going to expire Sunday.
