Walmart Prepares Smartphone Sale
In another huge pre-Black Friday CE sale by a major retailer, Walmart announced this week a major seven-day sale on smartphones. Beginning Nov. 14, customers are offered a $100 gift card with the purchase of any BlackBerry, along with a two-year contract.
The deal is good on all four major carriers, and includes multiple models of the Bold, Curve, Pearl, Storm and Storm2.
"We know customers are very focused on value, and we have promised each week to deliver new savings to help them stretch their dollars this holiday season," Greg Hall, vice president of media services for Walmart U.S., said as part of the announcement "With our expansion of Walmart Wireless products over the last year, we look forward to providing an exciting offer on our BlackBerry assortment and give cellular customers an extra boost on holiday needs."
