Verizon Black Friday deals are already available, and offer some highly desirable tech for a significant discount. Just what we want to see from the nation's best phone carrier during Black Friday.

Currently, one of the best early Verizon Black Friday deals is a free iPad and Apple Watch when you buy an iPhone. The caveat is that you'll have to sign up for an Unlimited plan to qualify, and you're only getting the entry level 10th Gen iPad and Apple Watch SE 2. Otherwise, this is one of the best Black Friday phone deals we've seen.  

If you don't have a phone to trade in and you don't mind owning a phone that's a generation old, Verizon has multiple 5G phones on sale for free with no trade-in required. This includes models like the iPhone 14 Pro Max, Galaxy S22, and the Galaxy S23 FE.  Below we're rounding up all of the best Verizon Black Friday deals you can get this week. Also, check out our Verizon promo codes and Verizon phone deals guides for more ways to save.
