Samsung devices

British retailer Carphone Warehouse is jumping on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday bandwagon, announcing the opening of a "Flash Sale" for Samsung mobile devices today. Many handsets that previously required an upfront payment on-contract — including the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy Ace 3 — are free for the duration of the sale. Others, are free on certain contracts and include a free gift — the Galaxy Note 3, for instance, comes with a free Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch tablet on contracts from £33 per month.

The Carphone Warehouse sale runs until 11:59pm GMT next Tuesday, Dec. 3. Elsewhere, rival retailer Phones 4u announced its Black Friday deals yesterday.

Carphone Warehouse Cyber Monday ‘Flash Sale’
Lowest prices ever

In anticipation of the biggest online shopping day of the year, Carphone Warehouse is offering shoppers its lowest ever prices in an online only ‘Flash Sale’. Customers can snap up bargains on Samsung products, including a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7” bundle for just £33 a month on a 24 month contract. The iPhone 5s has also been reduced to Carphone Warehouse’s best price ever and the exclusive range of Kate Moss designed accessories has been slashed to half price.

All handsets available on Carphone Warehouse Flash Sale can be viewed here:

A Carphone Warehouse spokesperson said: “Tablets are going to be a big seller this Cyber Monday, particularly now that there are so many different devices available that cover a range of budgets. That’s why we’ve specifically tailored our device bundle deals to offer people looking for value for money the chance to get their hands on a tablet for the family without any extra cost.

“The UK market is beginning to catch on to Cyber Monday, traditionally a US trend, and the web is bustling with more offers and deals than ever before to entice customers in on this now crucial Christmas shopping day. Last year we saw a 22% increase in the number of UK customers logging on during ‘Cyber Monday’ compared to the average online retail traffic for the rest of the fortnight and it is likely that this year’s uplift will be even more significant.

“There’s also been a huge increase in the number of people using their smartphones for shopping. In fact, in recent weeks we’ve seen the number of orders placed through our mobile site increase by more than 200% compared to the same time last year. We’re expecting Cyber Monday this year will mirror this further and that more customers than ever will be doing their Christmas shopping on the move via smartphones and tablets – perhaps it should be renamed Mobile Monday.”

All offers end 11:59PM Tuesday 3rd December
