When people are buying products, online or offline, they are always looking for a bargain. I know that I do. You are not a true consumer if you are not looking for a bargain for any product that you are looking to purchase. The same goes true for cell phones. If you are looking for a cell phone at a discount, then you will want to consider some factors.

One thing that you will want to pay attention to is the number of deals that get published by some of the major service providers like tmobile, verizon, sprint, etc. As long as they exist amongst one another, there will always be a bargain available for people to take advantage of. There are constant transactions going on between these companies and it will be imperative that you pay attention to what is going on in the marketplace.

The other factor that needs to be considered is how realistic you are when looking for these deals. You must understand that you do not get anything for free without paying for sacrificing something else. For example, there are many cell deals out there that require you to have long term service plans. If you get a free phone, you will have to sign a 2yr agreement, in most cases, and stay with them for that exact amount of time. This is basic stuff but it is commonly missed by most people because they get so excited about the deal that they are getting with the phone. Make sure you understand the terms of the agreement before you take that discount.
