While there are newer generations of the Apple iPhone available, it wasn’t that long ago that the Apple iPhone 11 found itself amongst the best phones. This is reason alone to make it your new phone of choice, but this $50 price tag from Cricket adds even more incentive. You can shoot 4K videos and take beautiful portraits with the iPhone 11, as it features Apple’s dual-camera system. You can capture low-light photos with the popular Night Mode, and the A13 Bionic chip is great for not only photography, but for gaming and augmented reality as well.

Weekend flash sale gets you a brand new iPhone for $149
The Apple iPhone SE (2022) being held in a mans hand.

If you've been wanting to get into Apple's ecosystem for a while, but have been worried about the high prices of their phones and tablets, then the Apple iPhone SE is the way to go. Billed as the first and only budget-friendly Apple phone, it lets consumers access the Apple ecosystem without spending an arm and a leg, which is a good thing. In fact, the third-generation iPhone SE came out at the beginning of this year and brought with it a lot of great upgrades.

While a relatively new iPhone doesn't often see a lot of substantial sales, we're happy to see this massive $230 discount on the iPhone SE 2022 from Best Buy. That brings the price down to a more reasonable $149 rather than the usual $379. There is a caveat, though, which is that it's part of a phone plan from Straight Talk, so you'd have to pair it with a no-contract unlimited talk, text & data plan from Straight Talk to gain access to the discount. Even so, that's not a bad deal, especially given the discount, so it's well worth grabbing while the deal lasts.
