Sure, it's nice to save a few bucks here or a hundred bucks there. But the real deals, the best deals, on Cyber Monday are the things you get for free. That's what you can expect from these iPhone 11 deals. You might have to jump through a hoop or two or trade in your old phone, but what's a little inconvenience compared to getting Apple's latest and greatest at no extra cost?

If you want to get the new iPhone 11 and don't want to go broke for it, get ready to trade in your old phone and sign up on Sprint's Flex Lease with a new line of service. Once you do that, you'll get a $29.17 monthly credit covering the cost of your new phone. It's time to move on from that old, slow smartphone and upgrade to your new lovely. As long as it's on Sprint's list of approved phones, you can get the iPhone 11 64GB phone for $0 a month, and your trade in can be in any condition.

You'll have to commit to Sprint's Flex Lease on a new line of service and trade in your old phone, but after that you'll get a $29.17 credit applied to your monthly bill, making the iPhone 11 free.

Of course, if you prefer Verizon, you can save a lot there, too. Switch to Verizon and sign up on an Unlimited plan and you can save up to $500 with an eligible trade-in. Then, after you've switched, you can get a $200 prepaid Mastercard. That's $700 in savings you can spend on any iPhone you like, including the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

After you've activated your new phone and signed up on a new line with an Unlimited plan, visit the Verizon Promotion Center. Use the code HOLIDAYSWITCH and then fill out the rest of the info. You'll get a $200 prepaid Mastercard sent to you within eight weeks.

If you're signing up with Verizon for the first time, you should also know you can get a full year of Disney+ for free just for being a Verizon customer. Consider that just a nice little bonus. Time to catch up on The Mandalorian and re-watch Aladdin. Here's everything you need to know about the Disney+ deal.
