You don't have to fight Black Friday crowds like those pictured above to get great deals on prepaid and unlocked phones. Many of the best Black Friday deals on prepaid phones will be available online again this year.

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 2016 Black Friday Brick and Mortar Prepaid and Unlocked Phone Deal Tracker which lists all known in-store Black Friday prepaid mobile phone deals.

Sales are listed below, sorted by store name, operator and price.

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 every 5 minutes through the end of the month. Ten special Deals of the Day will go live at Midnight Thanksgiving and 10 more sometime Black Friday.

    Comment Page :
    1. AMAZON - Nextbit Robin Factory Unlocked Phone - Midnight (U.S. Warranty) $169.99 Two different colors.

    2. Assuming your times are EST which agrees with start times I've seen on other BF sites posting online start times.

      1. Most of the stores don't give a starting time for their online sales. Instead they say something like "shop online all day Thanksgiving". Last year the sales went live anywhere from 12 AM to 9 AM ET.

      2. oh, that sounds so great. I'll just stay up all night clicking my "refresh" button.

    3. In any case, they agree (as far as the ones I checked) with the online times I found on bfads dot net. Didn't post a link to bfads dot net as they have site ads.

      1. You sound kind of lost... Coming here, to a phone news site that has ads, to say that you won't post a link to a site that people only go to for ads because it has ads in it.

      2. LOL!

        Just go out & be like the skaters waiting outside of GameStop at 0400 AM this morning.

    4. $110 for the Moto G4 Play 16GB at Frys:

      images dot frys dot com/art/email/112516_fri238lxs_2/bfri2_web.html#set5

      1. I can't find the Moto G4 Play in their 11-25-16 BF. (onlythe the Moto G4 Plus 32GB). Model. Is there a separate ad ?

      2. It's in store only which is why it's not listed in this post. The ad is here: Frys.com Email Campaign 11.25.16!

    5. Best Buy still not live! is there some special trick- like the promo codes yesterday? Any clues? just wait? and maybe miss it...

      1. Best Buy live now :) .... You still awake ;) .

    6. best buy.com live! walmart.com live! orders in! happy shopping!

    7. Bought both the LG Phoenix 2 and the Huawei Ascend XT.

      Thanks for providing the links Dennis.


    8. Target went live @ 3 AM ET. You need to add item to cart to see discounted price.

    9. The Walmart iphone 5s for straight talk can be unlocked or used used for any other carrier?

    10. Happy thanksgiving everybody! Im thankful i didnt have to stay up all night clicking refresh! Just one extra hour waiting for best buy.

      Frys electronics has some good deals tomorrow, online too i think?

    11. Cricket has got just one deal?.. Thats not good.

    12. Boost Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 $350 at their online store

    13. Fry's has the 64GB Moto G4 Plus for $209 after code. It's a door buster item. Available online and in-store. Page 9 of BF ad.

    14. **Dennis* *
      If you happen to see this Thursday night, Happy Thanksgiving and Thanks for this site!! Strictly based on value vs specs: Motorola Moto 4G (costco $175 plus tax) vs Motorola Moto 4G Plus (Frys $210, unsure abt tax?)
      For $35 more get double storage (32 up to 64), double ram (2 up to 4) plus slightly better camera. Both have LTE band 12 to use on MetroPCS. Which would you select based on a $35 price difference? Both gsmArena & cnet reviews sided slightly with the 4G based on $50 price difference before black friday pricing.
      Thanks for your thoughts & also for the time you AND Christine put into this site!!

    15. Seems like this year's Black Friday was a little weak and not just on phones but on pretty much everything. Maybe it's just me.

      1. Weak on phones but TV offerings seem way over the top.

      2. I didn't think so. I found plenty of junk cheap phones I don't need! and it was fun. and, I expect the deals will just keep coming for the next few weeks. Unless the hackers crack open the verizon moto G4 play soon, this year will not compare to last when we got moto e for $10! Even watching all year, that deal was never repeated.

      3. Yeah I found some great TV deals too. The problem is that a few minutes of online research told me that most of those cheap TVs wouldn't last more than a few weeks.

      4. There were some good prices on Samsung models and those will last more than a few weeks.

      5. "There were some good prices on Samsung models and those will last more than a few weeks"

        Burn baby burn...

    16. Which Windows device would be best to get? Lumia 640 XL or Lumia 650?

      1. 640 XL because of 13 MP camera! These phones sip battery life if controlled correctly! If you upgrade to Windows OS 10.1, your battery will drain 4x as fast but you will get abundant different programs and easier menus! Just go and buy yourself another battery to exchange out!

    17. Ting phone sale for BF. E.G.,
      New LG G4 CDMA for $174. Refurb iPhone 5S for GSM or CDMA for $174.

    18. and for Cyber Monday ?

      1. Most Black Friday sales are sill active. I'll be updating this post through today and will post a Cyber Week tracker tonight or tomorrow.

        Other than Target's 15% off site wide sale that Christine covered Wednesday and a few noon phone items at Amazon there's very little advance notification of upcoming Cyber Monday deals.

    19. Back- In-Stock Online: AT&T Huawei Ascend XT GoPhone Prepaid Smartphone $49.99

      1. Shows OOS here right now for Walmart and did earlier as well. Sometimes these go in and out of stock or stock is regional for some retailers. I do not know if stock is regional with Walmart or not.

      2. Yes, stock appears to be only for local stores and will vary by zip code you selected or Walmart site thinks you are at, so double check that and try other zips if applicable for you.

    20. will the Boost phones (LG Tribute HD 4G LTE from BB) activate on Kajeet?

      1. The Tribute HD only has been reported to activate on some Sprint MVNOs including RingPlus and Ting. It will probably also activate on Kajeet but I haven't heard of anyone trying it. Boost phones other than the Tribute HD generally do not activate on Sprint MVNOs.

    21. Dennis: now, why would the boost tribute hd work outside boost? Loophole? I dont get it. I might try it on RP to update my volt which still works fine but has gps and speakerphone problems since day one.

      1. Forget it. You waited too long, and the price is now $50.

      2. Of course its a loophole that the Tribute HD works on MVNOs with having been used for 12 months on Boost.

    22. Verizon Moto G4 Play at Best Buy for $35 for Cyber Monday!
