With the holiday season about to kick off, there’s no doubt that retailers all over the place are going to begin focusing on the best deals they can, and there’s no surprise that some of the most powerful smartphones out there will be included in those said deals. For example, a brand new deal from Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch for Sprint being bundled with a brand new Blu-ray player, if you happen to be looking for those types of devices.
The deal doesn’t actually last all that long, so you’ll have to act fast with this one. Beginning November 13th and running until November 19th, the deal is being offered to anyone who buys a new Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch for $199.99. You’ll be handed a Samsung (who would’ve thought it would be a Samsung Blu-ray player, right?) BD-D5100, which is valued at $89.99. As an added bonus, Best Buy points out in the press release that you can actually use the phone as a remote for the Blu-ray player, too.
Check out the full press release below.
