Black Friday deals 2018: $300 off Galaxy S9, Note 9, S9 Plus or $300 gift card



Black Friday deals are beginning to crop up for Samsung phones as premium as the Note 9 and Galaxy S9, to cheaper models you can buy for under $100. This is just the beginning, so you should expect even more offers from now through Cyber Monday. Promotions range from discounts to gift cards. 

Black Friday always falls on the day after Thanksgiving; this year that’s Friday, Nov. 23. These days, sales tend to get going around Nov. 16, and sometimes earlier. We’ll update this often with even more Black Friday phone deals as they appear.
