This is not the best Cyber Monday ever to get a super deal on a smartphone. Just a few years ago, retailers and carriers were offering the latest phones free or at deeply discounted prices in return for a two-year contract. Alas, those days are gone but some sellers are willing to toss in a free gift card with your purchase and there are decent deals on refurbs and unlocked models that liberate you from two years of payments.
This big box chain is offering a $250 gift card with your purchase of an iPhone 7S. Get a $160 gift card when you buy an iPhone SE. Best Buy is also offering $100 off if you buy and activate an iPhone as well as purchase a set of Beats Solo 3 or Powerbeats 3 at the same time. This offer seems a bit iffy since you might be able to find the headphones cheaper someplace else.
Buy and activate a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and get a free Samsung Gear VR headset plus a $250 gift card if you go with AT&T or a $400 gift card for Sprint or Verizon.

Of course, since this is Amazon, newer deals could pop up at any time.
