Big box retailer Best Buy has announced a new promotion aimed at potential smartphone purchasers this holiday season. Citing the success of its Free Phone Fridays campaign, BB will be offering “a minimum of four free smart phones (one from each carrier) in all Best Buy stores, in all Best Buy Mobile specialty stores and online” through the holiday shopping season. Currently, Best Buy’s website has fourteen smartphones listed with a $0 price tag, including HTC’s DROID Incredible and Aria, LG’s Optiums S and T, BlackBerry’s Curve 9300, and Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10.
“We were excited by the amount of consumer interest we received around our ‘Free Phone Fridays’ promotion in October, so we wanted to do it again only bigger,” said Best Buy Mobile’s president, Shawn Score. “People want smart phones and we couldn’t think of a better way to end the year for our customers than to offer free devices every day in December.”
As with most free phone promotions, a new or upgraded activation with a signed two-year contract is required.
