Interested in snagging some great Black Friday deals on prepaid phones but don't want to deal with the crowds? If you aren't interested in camping out in big box store parking lots, many of the best Black Friday deals on prepaid phones will be available online.

Unlike the in-store deals that are revealed weeks in advance by leaked scans of print ads, the online deals tend to pop up with no advance warning.

Prepaid Phone News will be updating this list as deals sell out and new items go online so check back here often or follow me on Twitter or Google+ or Facebook so you don't miss out on any of the deals.

For in-store Black Friday deals see our  2015 Black Friday Brick and Mortar Deal Tracker which lists all known in-store Black Friday prepaid mobile phone deals.

Black Friday is over. This post is no longer being updated.  See Updated 2015 Cyber Monday and Cyber Week Deal Tracker for Cyber Week deals.

Online Now:

Amazon Free shipping on orders $35 and up.

As in prior years, Amazon won't publish all its deals at once. Instead they will put new items on sale frequently throughout the day every day through the end of the month. Ten special Deals of the Day will go live at Midnight Thanksgiving and 10 more sometime Black Friday.

More deals will be available only through the Amazon app for Android, Fire OS and iOS. This year for the first time, the Amazon app will let you choose the deals you're interested in and notify you when the deal goes live.

    2. Dennis: If I order Samsung galaxy PRIME with porting the #, will I get $20 instant discount + $50 porting MIR + $100 shopping card rebate?. Is so, its a good deal!

    3. Yes, the discount and both rebates can all be provided.

  2. Not sure if this is a pre-black friday sale but there are tons of phones on sale at Walmart.com.

    LG Power $19.99
    LG Destiny $19.99

    and a few other great deals!

  3. can the Verizon Motorola phones from Best Buy etc be used on selectel or page plus or just usable for verizon prepaid proper?

    wish these phone companies would be phone companies and cell phone makers would simply sell unlocked phones.
    will it really cost that much to put all bands in every phone? Or just sale phones unlocked and clearly mark what bands they have!

    1. LTE Verizon Prepaid phones will work out of the box on Verizon MVNOs like Page Plus. 3G Verizon Prepaid phones must be used on a Verizon Prepaid plan for six months before they can be used on MVNOs.

    2. There's no definitive answer. New never used Virgin Mobile phones generally work on RingPlus but not always. Its best to check the MEID on the RingPlus site before buying, if possible or buying from a vendor that offers hassle free returns.

    1. It was sold out BEFORE the ad even went live!! that reminds me of the Toyota dealer ad last weekend for a fully loaded brand new 2016 Toyota Camry SE for $9999......needless to say they never had it (and never will), this is a typical bait and switch game.

  16. If somebody bought a 640 from Microsoft recently, is there an easy way to get the difference refunded? I can buy one at $39 on Black Friday and return the one I have now for what I paid, since I haven't opened it yet, but that's a lot of hassle and extra shipping cost for Microsoft. Not for me because I think I can return the phone to a physical Microsoft store a few miles from work.

  20. Ting has some tempting news about its Black Friday Sale, which will actually start on ....Friday. At 8:00, so you won't have to wake up at Midnight+1. What a concept!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So if someone refers you to Ting they get $50 for the first referral. They get a $25 referral credit, an a $50 account credit when they start a new account and bring a phone that's new to Ting. They also save $8 on a SIM+shipping. Friday phone discounts are extra savings.

      Delete
    2. Can you get the BYOP credit if you sign up Black Friday and order a SIM when you sign up? Of do you need to already have the SIM to activate the phone Friday?

      Delete
    3. That's covered in the Q&A that follows the Black Friday link above. Ting says wait to order the SIM on BF, to get the $8 discount. You will have until 12/7 to sign up and get the $50 credit. You get the extra $25 account credit if another Ting user refers you. If you don't know one, do some web searches. Some Ting users advertise so they can get their $25 credit when you sign up with their referral (their first referral is worth a $50 credit to them).
