If you're looking for a great deal on a phone, Cyber Monday phone deals are waiting to begin a long term relationship. That's because the best deals we're seeing are from the mobile network providers like AT&T and Verizon, and those deals usually come with long-term payment plans. They're still worth a look, especially today. 

We love a good bundle deal with a new phone, and Verizon has an amazing basket of goodies to hand over if you sign up for a contract agreement and give them your old phone as a trade. If you qualify, you can get $1000 off an iPhone 14 Pro, plus an Apple Watch SE, an iPad, and even a pair of Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds. Usually you have to choose one extra device, but Verizon wants your long-term commitment, so you get everything when you open a new line of service. 

If you have a phone to trade, even if it's broken, Samsung offers some of the best value on your old device. There are great discounts and rebates when you buy a flagship Galaxy S22 family phone from Samsung directly, and you can usually get more for your trade, even if (especially if) you have an Apple iPhone to give. 

Most of the Cyber Monday deals laid out on this page are holdouts from the previous Black Friday sale last week, but that doesn't mean they aren't great deals in their own right. Overall, there are fantastic options and today's sale is likely to be the last chance for a long time to bag some of these promotions.

We'll be keeping this page updated with all this year's Cyber Monday phone deals as soon as we spot them, so please feel free to check in throughout the day. Or, if you're specifically after an iPhone, then you should also check out our Cyber Monday iPhone deals guide.

Cyber Monday phone deals: Google

Google Pixel 6a (128GB, Charcoal): was  (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 6a (128GB, Charcoal): was $449 now $299 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) - The Google Pixel 6a is Google's latest mid-range phone, but with this $150 discount from Best Buy it's available at a low-end price. That's for an unlocked 128GB version in Charcoal. If you're not sure whether this is the right phone for you, we're fans of its small size, clean software, and speedy fingerprint sensor, but less keen on its battery life and charging speed. Still, at this price those flaws are much more forgivable.

Google Pixel 6 (unlocked): was (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 6 (unlocked): was $699 now $471.20 on Amazon (opens in new tab)
You can take 33% off the 256GB storage model of Google's still-excellent Pixel 6; with its superb AI-bolstered camera, strong performance and distinct design. There's also a 25% reduction on the 128GB model.

Google Pixel 7 (128GB, Obsidian): was  (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 7 (128GB, Obsidian): was $599 now $499 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) - The Google Pixel 7 is the latest flagship phone from Google, and while it only came out recently you can already get it at a $100 discount in this Black Friday sale from Best Buy. That brings the base 128GB model down to just $499, but the same discount is available with more storage. In our review we praised the Pixel 7's cameras, so this is one for photography fans. But with the same chipset as the Pixel 7 Pro its performance won't let you down either.

Google Pixel 7 Pro (128GB, Snow): was  (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 7 Pro (128GB, Snow): was $899 now $749 at Best Buy (opens in new tab) - The Pixel 7 Pro is one of the best phones on the planet right now, and it's the very best Pixel. It also only launched recently, so any sort of reduction is notable - especially one as big as $150 off, as we're seeing here. That $749 price is for a 128GB model, but you'll find the same $150 saving on other variants too. The Pixel 7 Pro excels particularly when it comes to its cameras, its snappy interface, and its intuitive software. But this being a high-end phone it's good in most other areas too.

Google Pixel 7 Series: save up to $900 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 7 Series: save up to $900 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)

Cyber Monday phone deals: FAQ

Is Cyber Monday a good time to buy a cell phone?

Regardless of whether you're looking for an upgrade on your carrier device or simply just a cheap unlocked phone, Cyber Monday means excellent deals on both.

For carrier devices, we expect all the big networks to be offering slightly better trade-in terms, switching bonuses, and potentially even buy-one get-one free bundles. For unlocked devices, it's likely we'll see some of the biggest upfront savings all year - especially on Android flagships.

3 tips for buying a phone deal on Cyber Monday

1. Research models ahead of time

By the time that we get to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you don't still want to be uhm-ing and ah-ing about which phone exactly it is that you want to buy. Narrow it down to a well-researched shortlist.

Android or iPhone; 2022 model, or something a bit older. Check for features, size, camera quality and whatever else is most important to you in a cell phone.

2. Deal types to look out for

Just like the above tip, it pays to be prepared. So we'd suggest considering now what kind of deal you want. In the US, there's a common trend for the big carriers to offer BOGO deals - handy if friends or family members are also on the hunt for a new mobile right now. If your current handset is still in good condition, think about the potential for a trade-in to save hundreds — sometimes even over 1,000 — of dollars.

3. Worth a gamble?

As we've explained above, it's not traditional for a whole flurry of new, jaw-dropping phone deals to drop on Cyber Monday. So if you like something that you see on Black Friday or the sales weekend, we'd suggest just grabbing it while stocks last rather than playing the waiting game.
