When is Cyber Monday 2020? 

This year, Cyber Monday takes place on Monday 30 November. It's always the first Monday directly following the Black Friday weekend, and acts like a bookend to a big old week of holiday offers. The best Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals will likely arrive on Monday 30, but there are plenty of early offers to take advantage of right now, especially if you're up for switching to a smaller carrier such as Mint Mobile.

Cyber Monday is the main shopping day for big tech deals, which of course includes the Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals. Major retailers and phone providers pull out all the stops on this last big Cyber week sale day before the Christmas rush begins. Basically everything you could ever think of buying goes on sale during Black Friday, so whether you’re looking for home computer deals, a smart pen (opens in new tab), or the best Cyber Monday cell phone plan deal, you'll surely find them and more. 

Should you buy a new cell phone plan on Cyber Monday? 

Ok so we've tracked down the best Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals, but is Cyber Monday actually the right time for you to upgrade or make a switch? This is an important question, because the average cell phone plan lasts a couple of years, so you'll be stuck with it for a while. So our advice is not to rush into anything and make sure you know up front what you're looking for and what you can afford. After all, the very best Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals are super-tempting, so you need to know what you're after.

Normally we wouldn’t expect newer models to have such big price drops straight out of the gate, but this year phone manufacturers and retailers have been releasing some of the best Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals we can recall. We’re already seeing big discounts and savings on the latest handsets, with price cuts on the latest models and flagship devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Plus, iPhone 12, and Google Pixel 5. 

Phones launched just this year, such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 (opens in new tab), will likely appear in the Cyber Monday sales. What we’re saying here is that if you don’t mind grabbing a 6-12 month old smartphone, you’ll be able to make some substantial savings.

Early Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals

Cyber Monday is just around the corner now, but there are plenty of deals to be had already. That's why we thought we'd track down the best Cyber Monday cell phone deals from all the big providers now, so you can decide if you want to buy now or hang on a little longer for Cyber Monday to officially arrive. To make your search easier, we've separated the deals out by provider.

Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals: What to expect

If last year's Cyber Monday sales are any indication, we should be in line for some big discounts on current gen smartphones, including the iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S20 (opens in new tab), and OnePlus 8 (opens in new tab). Most of this year’s phones came out in the earlier half of  2020. This means manufacturers and cell phone providers will be looking to shift old stock in time for the next intake of new phones, making these Cyber Monday cell phone plan deals the ideal way to make a saving.

At the same time, the ongoing pandemic has clearly had a big impact, with many smartphone companies taking walloping hits to their bottom line this year due to manufacturing issues and lower levels of spending. This could go either way on Cyber Monday, as brands may look to offer smaller discounts to recoup losses, or huge deals to entice shoppers back out. If Black Friday is anything to go by, it will be the former.
