Looking for a new phone? These Presidents’ Day deals could get you a free iPhone 15, a Pixel 8 for $399, or a free TV

The annual Presidents’ Day sales aren’t usually known for discounts on phones (more things like home goods), but there are some superb options right now if you’re looking to upgrade.

Verizon, Amazon, Mint Mobile, and AT&T all have superb cell phone deals right now coinciding with the Presidents’ Day sales so I’ve rounded up all the top options right now just below.

A few highlights include the iPhone 15 being given away for free alongside a new unlimited data plan for the first time ever at Verizon (no trade needed!), the excellent Google Pixel 8 for a record-low price of just $399 at Mint Mobile, and Amazon’s nifty $100 upfront discount on the brand-new OnePlus 12. All of these are Black Friday-level deals and well worth considering if you’re on the hunt for a shiny new phone.

Most of these cell phone deals at various carriers do need corresponding data plans to be eligible. You will, however, find some great discounts on unlocked devices over at Amazon right now, which are perfect if you’re looking to break away from the usual pricey plans at the major carriers or port your own device over.
