Just before the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless all announced sales for Black Friday and over the weekend. Conspicuously absent was any sort of sales event promoted by Sprint. Turns out Sprint was saving its deals for Cyber Monday instead of Black Friday.I didn't do any holiday shopping over the weekend. I abhor crowds and generally don't find the madness worth my own sanity. Be that as it may, shoppers hit the stores aplenty over the weekend looking for deals on gifts. Sprint's competitors all rolled out savings, which included a buy-one-get-one-free offer from Verizon Wireless, $50 BlackBerries from AT&T and $50 in savings on select handsets from T-Mobile.
I am sure these three carriers are extending their sales into today, or are offering alternate variations thereof. Did any of you go to a Sprint store over the weekend? I didn't. Sprint had to be offering sales of some sort, but the company didn't promote them at all. For whatever reason, Sprint decided to wait until this morning to pull out the big guns and announce its holiday deals.
