Father's Day offers have begun popping up at various online sites offering discounts for select tablets and smartphones from the major U.S. mobile service providers -- Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint. Here are the latest deals that are making the rounds.
Verizon is slashing $100 off all smartphones originally priced at $199.99 and up.
A surprising number of popular flagship smartphones are getting this offer -- including the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy s5, Apple iPhone 5s, and Motorola Droid MAXX. Each of these smartphones are now selling for $99.99.
Tablets are getting deals, too. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 tablet is selling for $199.99, while Verizon's own Ellipsis "Jetpack" is selling for $0.99.
While supplies last, Verizon is also offering older smartphones and tablets for free. These devices include the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), LG G2, Motorola Moto X, Apple iPhone 4s, Samsung Galaxy s4 mini, and Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet.
There is still a catch to all this generosity though, for every Father's Day deal on Verizon is exclusive to customers purchasing the 2-year service plan.
T-Mobile is reducing $24 off the original price for the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Google Nexus 5, LG Optimus F3Q, and Samsung Galayx Light. The mobile service provider is also slashing $48 off the price of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
As part of a Father's Day deal, customers will get 200MB of free date per month with the purchase of a tablet from T-Mobile's site. Also, T-Mobile is offering free overnight shipping on all smartphone and tablets, but the deal ends on June 11.
Best Buy (w/ Sprint, AT&T, Verizon Two-Year Plans)
Best Buy is slashing $99.99 off the original price of the HTC One (M8) that comes with a 2-year plan from AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. A similar deal is being offered via the HTC manufacturer site as well.
A more generous offer lowers the Samsung Galaxy S4 to a mere $1.00 for buyers planning to purchase the 2-year service from Sprint and AT&T.
Amazon (Samsung Galaxy S5)
On Amazon, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is being offered at the basic price of $99.99. Naturally, the price will increase depending on the service plan. The service plans available come from Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T.
The Galaxy S5 being offered comes in either black or white casing.
