Best Mobile Deals for the Week: May 26, 2020
We’ve spent the morning digging through this weeks available deals, and this time we done something a bit different — we’ve brought one deal back to the roundup for a second go around. The return deal is for the second-generation iPhone SE with Mint Mobile. Otherwise, aside from the iPhone SE, this time around the weekly deals include a bunch of Android phones. Devices this week include the Samsung Galaxy A51, Samsung Galaxy A10e, Samsung Galalxy J7 Crown and the LG Stylo 3. The carriers included in this weeks deals roundup include Xfinity Mobile, Cricket Wireless, Total Wireless, and Straight Talk.
Save $100 on a Samsung Galaxy A51 with Xfinity Mobile
Saving $100 on a phone purchase sounds good, but saving $100 on a recently released phone sounds even better. This deal means getting the Samsung Galaxy A51 from Xfinity Mobile for $300. In order to secure this deal you’ll have to choose the option to pay monthly, as opposed to paying in full. The payments are $12.50 per month, and they are spread over 24-months. The fine print for this offer states you need to transfer your existing phone number to Xfinity Mobile, and that you must keep your service active for the full 24-month period to get the full $100 savings.
The Galaxy A51 feature set includes a 6.5-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display at 1080 x 2400 with Android 10, 128GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot for expansion, and a 4000 mAh battery. Samsung also has the Galaxy A51 packed with a quad-camera setup. The front-facing camera is a 32MP, and the rear-camera array includes a 48MP main camera with a 12MP ultra-wide and a 5MP depth camera.
Switch to Cricket Wireless and get a Samsung Galaxy A10e for $9.99
Up next is another Samsung smartphone — the Galaxy A10e, which can be purchased for $9.99 if you switch to Cricket Wireless. This deal requires you to port your current phone number to Cricket Wireless, and activate the Galaxy A10e on the $60 per month Unlimited + 15GB Mobile Hotspot plan. This particular plan includes unlimited talk, text, and data, with 15GB of data to use as a mobile hotspot. This plan also includes usage for Mexico and Canada, as well as texting to 37 other countries.
In terms of the phone itself — the Samsung Galaxy S10e features a 5.83-inch edge-to-edge display, 32GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot for expansion, a 3000 mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie. Other highlights include a 5MP front-facing camera and an 8MP rear-facing camera with an LED flash.
Don’t miss out — this offer expires on June 4, 2020
Get an iPhone SE and monthly service for $30 per month from Mint Mobile
This deal is one that is hard to skip, which is why it has earned a return trip to the weekly deals roundup. Grabbing this deal means getting a brand new phone and monthly service for $30 per month (for 24-months). The phone is the second-generation iPhone SE, and the service is for the 3GB plan, which includes unlimited talk and text with 3GB of 4G LTE data. Grabbing the deal at this level means $15 for the phone and $15 for the service. Of course, you can also up your data to 8GB for $35 per month ($15 for the phone and $20 for the service).
The $15 price point for the iPhone SE is for the 64GB model, and you can choose between black, white, or red. The second-generation iPhone SE feature set includes a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with the Apple A13 Bionic chip, which is the same chip that powers the iPhone 11 Pro. Other features include wireless charging, an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, and a home button with Touch ID for device security. The iPhone SE also has a 7MP front-facing camera with a 12MP camera on the back.
Switch to Total Wireless and save $30 on an LG Stylo 3
Switching to Total Wireless and activating a line of service on one of the carriers no-contract plans means you get the LG Stylo 3 for $99.99, which is a savings of $30. The LG Stylo 3 features a 5.7-inch display, along with 16GB of internal storage space, a 5MP camera on the front, and a 13MP camera on the back.
Total Wireless service plans are priced from $23.70 per month (with auto-refill) and go up to $47.50 per month for single line plans. The plans all include unlimited talk and text, with varying amounts of high-speed data. The $23.70 per month plan has 1GB of high-speed data, the $33.20 per month plan includes 5GB of high-speed data, and the $47.50 per month plan includes 25GB of high-speed data. All three plans offer unlimited 2G data once your high-speed allotment is used. The two higher-end plans also include mobile hotspot.
Get a Samsung Galaxy J7 Crown from Straight Talk for $89.99
You can get a new Samsung Galaxy J7 Crown for $89.99 by switching to Straight Talk. This is down from the regular price of $149.99, and the deal requires you to activate the phone with any of the no-contract plans offered by Straight Talk. The carrier has plans priced from $35 up to $60 per month. The plans all include unlimited talk and text and have varying amounts of high-speed data. On the low-end, the $35 per month plan includes 5GB of high-speed data with the $60 per month plan offering 25GB of high-speed data.
