Apparently you don't have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to save a ton of money on phones this year. In fact, if you can find a penny lying around anywhere you can actually purchase any phone with the Droid moniker. That would include the HTC Droid Incredible or the Motorola Droid X. It even extends to the newly released Droid Pro. Of course you have to sign your life away to Verizon for two years to cash in on the deal, but with the money you save you can buy some killer cell phone accessories like this solar powered phone charger. The deal only runs through the weekend.
Amazon and Verizon aren't the only players getting into the penny for a phone game. AT&T will be having a 24 hour .01¢ sale for all refurbished phones on Saturday the 26th. OK, so that's not nearly as impressive as a brand new Motorola Droid Pro for the same price, but wait a minute. AT&T will have a second 24 hour .01¢ sale on Monday the 28th where they will be offering their high end smartphones for a copper Lincoln. Two of the phones included in that deal are the HTC Aria and the Blackberry Curve 3G.
US cellular isn't offering anything quite as cool as a penny sale, but they are launching their Black Friday deals starting Monday the 22nd. US Cellular will be offering $80 mail in rebates on 4 different phones, including the Samsung Acclaim and the LG Apex, which will be free after the rebate.
No word on what Sprint or T-Mobile might have planned for the busiest shopping weekend of the year, but they have their work cut out for them to offer up anything that matches what's already out there.
