Customers can now pick up any smartphone from any major carrier at $50 off their regular price.
Best Buy is giving away $50 gift cards to any customer planning to put it towards the purchase of a new smartphone from any carrier with any plan. The deal includes many of today's most popular devices such as the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One. It also should encompass upcoming devices such as the upcoming iPhone 6, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and HTC One 2.
In order to receive the gift card users must log onto Best Buy's website between Feb. 2 and Feb. 15 and sign up for the deal. The card can be used any time before Dec. 31, 2014. By this date, all the successors to this year's line of flagship devices should be available.
New lines and new phone numbers are not eligible so users will want to check the Upgrade Checker to find out if they are qualified. Users will need to register with their existing number, which could be used to activate a new agreement with any of the major carriers including AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile.
More info and full terms and conditions will be available on Sunday. Users can find the updates here.
It is safe to assume that the iPhone 6, Galaxy S5, HTC One 2 and Galaxy Note 4 will be available before the end of December this year. The Galaxy S5 is expected to be available by April, the Galaxy Note 4 will probably launch in the spring with the iPhone 6, and the HTC One 2 will be released sometime soon.
However, none of these launches have been officially confirmed at this time.
