Thread Details

Did a search, seems no one is mentioning this promote can actually be applied to iphone5.
On the other thread, someone said it didn't.

So here it is....

Oct 6th only, shopdiscover has double cash back for one day, combine that with the 5% quarter bonus and 5% cashback at apple.com you net 12% total.
I talked to a rep and confirmed the cashback stacks, also works on iphone5 up to 2 units purchased within 30 days.
Same offer works on other apple products also, but it is not really worth to mention as those thing do go on sale every now and then. So unless you are one of those people on some primer account that is not charging tax on equipment sales, this is probably the best deal you will see for a while on iphone5, until the refurb unit comes out.

Here is the run down
go www.discover.com to sign up the 2% cashback bonus and the 5% quarter bonus if you havent already, and head over to shopdiscover and select apple store from the merchant list for the 5% cashback and start shopping, it will bring you to apple.com. Just do your upgrade etc there, make sure don't close the browser/tab until you checked out.

enjoy.

and please, don't get all exciting with the omg apple stuff is over priced bs. Even you think this is over priced, you can still jump in this deal and flip the phone for a sweeter profit. There are peopel buying att iphone5 16gb for $800 on craigslist now, and verizon up to 1k due to its out of the box unlock sim. By the time you got the phone, price probably will drop some but still will give you a better cost vs profit ratio against other seller out there :x my estimated arrival date is nov 7 - 14

BTW, I believe you don't even have to pay for the purchase with Discover card.

Still, the question is - is there a way to get the iPhone off contract?
You still have to provide your cellular phone number, but then Apple's site does a lookup, says you aren't upgrade eligible, then offers you the $649-849 pricing without a contract extension. If you don't currently have any phone service I'm not sure if it's possible yet.

how do u know people r buying it at $800 on craigslist?
I've had multiple (legitimate/non-Nigerian) offers $750, $840, and $850 for my ($10 eBay IMEI unlocked) 16 GB AT&T iPhone 5. I can confirm this is true.

I listed it at $850, and people were offering up until that last week. It obviously drops as more phones are available in around the city. The demand is still very high though. Even at an early upgrade of $475, you're still looking at a significant profit here.

Is this going to be the best deal basically for upgrade? I saw somewhere was waving upgrade fees on this but I don't know where? So after the cash-back its basically a free upgrade.
I am going to upgrade to the iphone 5 but I wanted to wait to see if there was any problems with the phone and I wanted to get a somewhat good deal. I will probably wait the latest till the end of November, so this will be the best deal till then? TIA!

Since the offer is best today, even if you place an order for an iPhone 5, the shipping date is 3-4 weeks. Meaning your card will not be charge until it's shipped. So will the discount of 12% still applies? That's a BIG if.

From what I read before on the 2%, you need to make the purchase today AND it needs to post to your Discover card today to get the 2%, otherwise it will only be 1%. Presuming the other cashback still apply, you are at 11% instead of 12%.

Good point, I bet Apple will post a pending charge today but it won't post until it ships.

The 5% CB for OL purchases looks safe beacause it is valid till DEC but I'm not sure about the 2% as mentioned avobe by the time it ships one may get ony 1% and what is worst 5% apple may go down by that time also and if the card is not chrged till shipping there is going to be a lot of disapointment :-)

Can you buy it online for store pickup? That way the online purchase bonus works like it should and the charge may also post today.

Best price for iPad too after 12% discount.

The poster you quoted is incorrect. For this cashback to work, this is how the breakdown works:

5% - Quarterly 'Online Purchases' category - Will definitely not work if you do not use discover card.
2% - Oct 6 special bonus - Will definitely not work if you do not use discover card. May not work even if you use your discover card since the terms are strict about the purchase 'posted on Oct 6' which would not be the case since Apple would post it when it ships.
5% - Shopdiscover affiliate linking - May work, may be not. This has been a hit/miss since shopdiscover terms state you need to use discover card.

This is incorrect. Apple will post it later but the transaction date matters here. It will be in "Processing" status till tomorrow. It works fine.
