The shopping spree for mobile phones has started once we have seen them on our PC screen : “HOT DEALS ON SAMSUNG PHONES”. These “Come and Get it” signs sometimes work like a charm on people’s mind even though the discount is more or less 5% off ( there are cases when you can purchase the phone almost for free).
A hot deal on a mobile phone, be it Samsung or any other brand, can also mean that it is a second hand phone or it may be an offer which includes a service plan also. Some brands, like Samsung, give out vouchers in order to make the purchase of a good phone less expensive.
So, I’m going to list a couple of prices for some phones, not the latest ones, and see how hot they are. Let’s take the case of Samsung Nexus S, which can be found on Amazon and it costs $475.00 if you want it new; but if you don’t mind to purchase a used one you can get it for only $425.00; there is no big difference here. The same model can be bought from Best Buy and it costs $529.99 with free shipping; well this is not a hot deal at all.
Galaxy S™ 4G Android Smartphone can be purchased for $99.99 on Amazon; I may say that this indeed is a real hot deal. It can also be found at other retail shops; but in order to get it at a low price you have to buy a service plan; like in the case of T Mobile where the phone costs $129.99 with a service plan.
If you really want a hot deal for a mobile phone you can go to a retail shop and see what do they have to offer you, but keep in mind that in order to purchase a Samsung mobile phone at an incredible price you have to take it with a service plan and this will cost you in the future much more.11
