If you closely follow smartphone deals, you know that the US unlocked models of Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge don't often go on sale. However, for Black Friday, several retailers are handing some pretty nice discounts and freebies out for them. We're also seeing some discounts on American carrier and international dual SIM models.
Let's start with the US unlocked Galaxy S7 (SM-G930U). Samsung.com is not only taking $120 off the S7's MSRP of $669.99, making the price $549.99, but is also throwing in a free Gear VR gift pack (it's not clear what exactly the gift pack includes, although it's likely free Oculus content) and a white wireless charging pad (not of the fast charging variety). It's worth noting that the Gear VR being included is the improved, darker-colored 2016 model. Black Onyx appears to be the only color available, and the offer ends today (11/26).
B&H has also discounted the Black Onyx US unlocked S7 by $120 to $549.99 and is including the same Gear VR gift pack, but is throwing in some different free things - a black Samsung fast wireless charging pad, the black (mostly useless) OEM keyboard case, and a transparent OEM case with gold accents - in place of the standard white wireless charging pad. This deal ends tomorrow (11/27), although the Gear VR gift pack will continue to be included until the 28th.
Like Samsung.com and B&H, Best Buy is offering the US unlocked Galaxy S7 for $549.99 , but has the Gold color available in addition to Black Onyx. However, there are no freebies included. If you're okay with a refurbished unit , you can save an additional $50 and get one for $499.99.
Interestingly, Samsung.com has some pretty intriguing offers for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge carrier models . AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon models (all of which have slightly different prices) of the S7 and S7 edge aren't technically discounted, but they're all eligible for $250 eCertificates towards future purchases on Samsung.com and the Gear VR gift packs that have been mentioned a few times now. It's worth noting that the new Blue Coral color is available on all four carrier models of the S7 edge. These promos all end on November 28th.
Lastly, B&H has some pretty substantial price cuts for the international, dual SIM unlocked models of the S7 (SM-G930FD) and S7 edge (SM-G935FD). The S7 Duos is being discounted $200, from $699.99 to $499.99, and the S7 edge Duos is being discounted $250, from $799.99 to $549.99. A free Samsung fast charger (QC2.0-capable) is included with both devices.
