Whether you're buying a new phone or switching carriers, there's a deal out there with your name on it. As next-gen phones like the iPhone 12 and Pixel 5 purportedly arriving soon, soon-to-be-previous-gen phones are seeing deep discounts. 

For example, Verizon is running a BOGO phone deal that nets you a free iPhone 11. To qualify for this deal, you must activate a new line under a Verizon Unlimited plan. Your $1,000 cashback will show up as credits on your monthly billing statements over the course of 24 months. 

Even better, you can switch to Verizon Unlimited and get a $150 Verizon gift card bonus. 

Alternatively, if you're looking for an unlocked Galaxy phone deal, Amazon is your best bet. The retail giant currently has the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G on sale for $799 ($200 off), which is an all-time low price. 

These are just a couple of examples of this week's top phone deals. From the Apple iPhone 11 to the OnePlus 8, here are the best phone deals you can get right now.
