The Galaxy S7 is the best Samsung phone you can buy this holiday season, given that the Galaxy Note 7 was cancelled due to its tendency to explode. Lucky for Samsung fans, there are plenty of great Black Friday deals for both the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge right now. But Best Buy’s latest offer seems to be too good to pass up, as it might be the best Black Friday Galaxy S7 sale we’ve seen. It might be even better than Best Buy’s other hot pre-Black Friday Galaxy S7 deal.

DEAL ALERT: Don’t like these deals? Check out an even bigger Black Friday sale right here

Best Buy will give you a free Best Buy gift card worth $450 when you trade in any working smartphone for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge. You’ll have to buy the phone on a Sprint or Verizon installment plan to get the gift card, though.

If you were already eying a Galaxy S7 from Sprint or Verizon, then you have to check it out right now. Sure, you’ll have to trade in your existing smartphone, rather than sell it yourself, but that $450 gift card should come in handy on Black Friday. The best part about it is that you don’t have to wait until next week to take advantage of this huge Galaxy S7 sale. The deal is included in Best Buy’s early Black Friday 2016 sale, which should be available online and in stores right away.

Best Buy’s full Black Friday ad is available at this link (see the updated version as well). The full press release detailing this amazing Galaxy S7 deal and other great pre-Black Friday sales follows below.

Best Buy: Five Reasons You’d be Crazy to Wait until Thanksgiving to Start Holiday Shopping

For many shoppers and deal-seekers, Thanksgiving and Black Friday have been circled on calendars for months, and for good reason; it’s one of the best times to score deals on holiday gifts and must-haves.

But this year, customers can’t wait until Turkey Day to start their holiday shopping.

“More than ever, customers don’t need to wait until next week to find great deals in stores and online,” said Mike Mohan, chief merchandising officer at Best Buy. “Some of the lowest prices on the hottest tech gadgets are available right now.”
Need more proof? Here are five reasons you should start shopping now:

1. Thanksgiving Day Football

The table is set, the turkey is roasting – it’s football time. How can you watch the game on your new-and-improved TV if you’re waiting until next week to buy it, especially when there are legit deals right now?
Swing by Best Buy and pick up a Samsung 48-inch LED Smart HDTV for $279.99 (save $220), a Toshiba 55-inch LED HDTV with built-in Chromecast for $349.99 (save $100), or if you want to go all out, a Vizio 70-inch 4K UHD TV with a built-in Chromecast for $999.99 (save $300.)
And don’t forget about sound. Save $132 on Samsung Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer ($147.99.)

2. Holiday Hosting Prep

So you’re hosting Turkey Day again this year – and unfortunately, your home won’t clean itself and your meal won’t cook itself. How do you prep for guests if you don’t have what you need?
Best Buy has hot deals on everything you need for cooking (for example, save $50 on all Vitamix blenders) and tidying up before guests arrive (Dyson V6 Total Clean Stick Vacuum for $379.99, savings of $170.)

3. Post-Election Dinner Table Conversation

We all have that family member. Although Nov. 8 has come and gone, many of us dread that guest (or two) who has become a political pundit and can’t wait to share his or her election views with you.
You’re going to need to tune them out – Sony wireless headphones, which are $110 off, should help.

4. Family Photos

This is one of few times of year you’re surrounded by all of your loved ones, so you’re not going to want to miss the photo opportunities. This weekend, get an Instax instant film camera bundle with two cameras and two sets of film for $99.99 (save $50.)

5. Your Holiday Shopping Budget

Wouldn’t a $450 Best Buy gift card help your holiday gifting budget? Wouldn’t a new Samsung smartphone sweeten the deal?
