Want to Save on the iPhone X? Here Are All The Deals From U.S. Carriers
By all accounts, the iPhone X will be a great smartphone. It looks beautiful, features an innovated new facial recognition system, wireless charging, and is packed with powerful hardware. The only major downside to the iPhone X is that 1,000 dollar price tag. Fortunately for U.S. Apple fans, the country’s various carriers have entered into a bit of a price war that could save you as much as $350 on Apple’s latest iPhone.
T-Mobile is prepared to offer customers $300 off the iPhone X or any of the iPhone 8 models provided they are willing to trade-in a qualifying iPhone. These savings are applied via 24 monthly bill credits.
Additionally, the company is offering a yearly upgrade program that will allow users to upgrade to the latest model of the iPhone provided they’ve paid off at least half of their current phone. At first glance, this “Jump! On Demand” leasing program might seem like a great deal since it will allow you to get the latest iPhone without having to pay off your current device, but there is one important catch. Under this plan, users won’t ever own their phones so they’ll always be paying. If you want the latest iPhone every year then it’s worth considering, but if you’d prefer to simply own your phone then the basic installment plan would probably be a better bet.
Sprint is actually offering the largest iPhone X discount of all the major U.S. retailers offering to slash the price by $350. However, in order to take advantage of this deal, users will have to trade in an eligible smartphone from the following list.
- Phone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- Phone 6 and 6 plus
- iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
- Samsung GS8, Samsung GS8+
- Samsung GS7, Samsung GS7 Edge
- Samsung Note
- LG G5
- LG G6
- LG V20
- Google Pixel
- Google Pixel XL
- Moto Z Droid
- Moto Z Play
- Moto Z2 Force
- Moto Z Force Droid
- Moto Z2 Play
- BlackBerry KEYone
- HTC U11
Sprint says that after the trade-in users will only be paying $22.22 a month for 18 months which brings the total down to $400. In addition, this plan will include Sprint’s Apple Forever program which will allow users to upgrade to the latest iPhone after 12 payments though you can continue to pay off your phone if you wish to own it rather than continuously lease an iPhone.
Verizon has also announced that it will be offering up to $300 off the iPhone X to those who trade in eligible devices. As with similar offers, these discounts will be applied via monthly bill credits. In this case, the credits will be applied over a 24-month period.
Oddly enough, the original home of the iPhone hasn’t announced any special deals surrounding the iPhone X, but they probably will soon. If so, we’ll update this post with more information.
