Early Walmart Black Friday BlackBerry Deals Analyzed

As reported earlier Walmart announced their next early Black Friday deal today. Starting on Saturday you can get a free $100 Walmart Gift card with the purchase of a new BlackBerry with 2-year contract. This is a pretty stress free offer as I guess Walmart will have plenty of BlackBerry phones available during the whole next week.

$100 Gift cards always sound very nice, but are the offered BlackBerry phones a great deal? Lets have a look a the eight BlackBerry phones offered by Walmart and their prices.

Walmart early Black Friday BlackBerry Deals with free $100 Walmart Gift Card:
(Valid starting November 14th with new 2-year contract)

AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8310 Price: $0
On AT&T you have to pay $99.99 after $100 mail-in rebate for the Curve 8310, but Amazon sells the AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8310 for 1c. Walmart's Curve 8310 wins as you get a $100 Walmart Gift Card.

AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9000 Price: $78.88
The BlackBerry Bold 9000 sells on AT&T for $199.99 after $100 mail-in rebate. Amazon charges $39.99 for the AT&T BlackBerry Bold, which is $38.89 less than Walmart charges for it. Overall with the $100 gift card you only save $61.11 on the Bold. On LetsTalk the AT&T Bold is even free with contract reducing the potential savings to $21.12.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8520 Price: $28.88
The Curve 8520 sells on T-Mobile for $129.99. On Amazon you only pay 1c and the activation fee of $35 is currently waived. With the $100 gift card deal you save here $71.12. If Walmart charges an activation fee you have only saved $36.12.

T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Black Emerald Price: $28.88
T-Mobile sells the T-Mobile BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Black Emerald for $79.99. Amazon also has this T-Mobile BlackBerry on sale with contract for 1c and currently no activation fee. With the $100 gift card deal you save here $71.12. If Walmart charges an activation fee you have only saved $36.12.

Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8330 TNM Price: $0
Sprint sells the BlackBerry Curve 8330 for $49.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Amazon also sells it for $49.99 but you do not have to deal with the mail-in rebate. LetsTalk matches Walmart's $0 offer on the Curve 8330, which means this is a great deal as you fully benefit from the $100 Gift card.

Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8330 Red Price: $0
Sprint sells the BlackBerry Curve 8330 for $49.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate. LetsTalk matches Walmart's $0 offer on the Curve 8330, which means this is a great deal as you fully benefit from the $100 Gift card.

Verizon BlackBerry Storm Price:$48.88
I assume Walmart means here the first generation Storm 5530 and not the new Storm 2 9550. The Storm 2 is mentioned in the Walmart announcement, but its price has not been published on the Walmart site. The original Storm 9530 can be had for free on LetsTalk . The savings with the $100 Gift Card are only $51.12.

Verizon BlackBerry Tour Price: $148.88
In the initial announcement the Tour is not mentioned, but it is listed on the Walmart site . Not sure what the deal is here as Verizon also sells the Tour 9630 for $149.99. LetsTalk has the Tour 9630 also on sale for $0. Even with the $100 Gift Card you still make a loss of about $50.

The offers analyzed above may vary depending on the service plan you choose and you also should check the activation fees. Overall the Walmart BlackBerry early Black Friday deal is a mixed bag. On some BlackBerrys you really get a great deal as you get the $100 Gift Card and no other retailer is matching these deals just yet. On several others you do not save the complete $100 or even make a loss when you compare the prices.

Last weekend Amazon matched several of Walmart's early Black Friday deals . It could happen again this Saturday. In the end you really always need to compare prices. A free $100 Gift card offer is not a guarantee that you actually got a great Black Friday deal.
