From BOGO promotions to free devices, here are some of the sweetest holiday discounts to take advantage of leading up to Thanksgiving.

As retailers begin to roll out holiday price cuts earlier than ever due to the ongoing pandemic, it's never been a better time to catch a steal on a phone upgrade. With AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Best Buy offering specials ahead of the biggest shopping day of the year, you can purchase devices online or in-store for pick-up and delivery.

Per guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of Sept. 11, you should opt for contactless pick-up or delivery if possible and avoid running unnecessary errands. If you do plan to come into contact with others when buying your new phone, wear a face mask when out in public, keep your distance from other people, and wash your hands after handling packaging or leaving a store.
