Black Friday Sales - What to Expect

November 27, 2013 by

Although Black Friday is technically an American thing, Canadian retailers like to hop on the retail wagon and offer competitive deals to keep shoppers this side of the border. This year it appears many service providers will be offering higher-end phones for free with a 2-year contract. Great deal if you're looking for a solid device, but are perhaps a little cash poor this holiday season. At select retailers (eg; Best Buy), some even offer a free gift card as added incentive.

Phones we've noticed that will be up for grabs at a reduced price with a 2-year term include:

iPhone 5s 16GB $180
