In case you didn't see these yet, there are some unusual deals for the next few days.
Received an alert from Tom Semple, who drew my attention to the unusual offering of an UNLOCKED model of the Amazon Fire Phone, which includes 1 year of Prime (for new membership or additional year for Prime members).
(List price $449 - States taxes are based on the $199 price, per Tom Semple's exploring.
This is especially good (and economical, as unlocked phone prices go) for those who did not want to be locked into using AT&T.
He also saw that "Amazon Amazon helpfully enumerates all of the 'compatible' GSM carriers" but that he will just use its WiFi capability with the features, which is how I use my old Samsung Galaxy 2 phone, which is older and now like a very small tablet for me that saves my cellphone battery when WiFi is available.
The 99 cent deal that goes with a specific 2-yr data plan is still a current one.
