Sprint is at the top of the list when most consumers think about budget carriers. The carrier is often doing $0/month leases on trade-in or free service when you switch from other carriers. We’re expecting some great deals during this year’s Sprint Black Friday 2018 sales, so keep reading to learn the best ways to prepare for the big day.

When is Black Friday at Sprint?

Last year, we saw the first mentions of Sprint’s Black Friday sales in mid-November. We saw the official information drop on November 15th, to be exact. Like T-Mobile, the deals began on the 17th. We can expect this to continue in 2018, so you shouldn’t have to fight Black Friday crowds to get a good deal at Sprint.

Free shipping at Sprint

Sprint normally charges $10 per item for shipping unless you’re buying a phone and activating a new line. We can expect this to continue on Black Friday, as Sprint didn’t do any special shipping deals last year.

Will Sprint be open on Thanksgiving?

No, Sprint will not be open on Thanksgiving day. But, you should be able to cash in on savings online, especially since the deals started early last year.

Score Black Friday savings at Sprint

We’re going to see some great sales at this year’s Sprint Black Friday sales. Last year we saw phones, tablets, accessories, and even Hulu plans discounted. Sprint will be a hot ticket item for many as it offers a lower-cost alternative to the other carriers while still providing you this year’s hottest devices.

Will Sprint have Doorbusters for Black Friday?

Since Sprint’s Black Friday festivities started on November 17th last year, there likely won’t be any Doorbusters this year. Since you can start shopping so early, though, there isn’t really a need as most of the products aren’t on limited supply. And, if something does run out, Sprint normally allows back-orders to be placed.

Does Sprint offer price matching during Black Friday?

Generally, no. Sprint is among one of the lowest-cost carriers around, and will likely have some hard-to-beat deals this Black Friday.

What will be on sale at Sprint on Black Friday?

Last year, we saw plenty of the latest gadgets get discounted, from the Galaxy S8/Note8, to Harman Kardon speakers, it was all on sale. One standout deal that Sprint offered last year was the Galaxy Forever promotion that allowed you to pay one price and get every new Galaxy phone after 12 months. Another great deal was five lines of unlimited for $100 total per month. Plus, you could get a free Hulu Limited Commercials plan with the account, which had a monthly added value of $8.

Sprint is already heavily discounting the iPhone XS and XR to $0/month when you trade-in an eligible device, so we can expect to see some fantastic deals like this (or better) on Black Friday.
