Best Buy today kicked off a new three-day sale that will last all weekend and end on Sunday at 11:59 p.m. CT. The sale is full of great last-minute gift ideas for the holidays, and Best Buy still promises free shipping on everything all season. Orders for most items placed before 10:30 a.m. CT on December 20 will arrive before Christmas Eve.

The first items in the sale are last year's iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus, with savings of up to $150 for qualified activation for Verizon or Sprint customers. Savings are deducted off the full price of the iPhone and reflected in reduced monthly payments over the life of the device, including as low as $18.75/month for 24 months (and $150 down payment) for an iPhone X on Sprint.
