Cricket Wireless has dropped the price of three Samsung Galaxy smartphones as part of a limited time promotion in honor of Cyber Monday. In reality, the extended deal lasts for a few days.

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, wireless carriers are rolling out discounts to attract new customers. This is perhaps one of the most competitive times of the year and buyers have no shortage of options to choose from. Cricket, which operates on the AT&T network, has offered up a number of limited time promotions over the last few weeks.

Starting Monday and running through December 3, new and existing Cricket customers can purchase the Samsung Galaxy S4 for $100 or the Samsung Galaxy S5 for $200. Even Samsung's 2015 flagship, the Galaxy S6, has been halved and now costs $250. And, yes, those prices are without signing any long-term contract.

Double-dipping on the holiday cheer, Cricket is also letting customers combine the discounted smartphones with another limited-time promotion. Between now and December 7, anyone who ports their phone number over from another carrier can receive a $100 credit that can be used toward future bills, accessories and other smartphones.
