Exploring the Best iPhone XR Deals and Discounts
You can get the new iPhone XR for $0 a month when leasing with Sprint Flex. You just need to trade-in an eligible phone and sign up for an 18 month contract and you should be good to go.
Sprint will provide you with a return kit, and they will give you 30 days after you receive your XR to trade-in your old phone. This deal is also available for new lines and eligible upgrades with approved credit.
There are a lot of terms and conditions on this deal, so be sure to visit the Sprint site to learn more.
If you're upgrading to an iPhone XR, you can get a $100 back in the form of credits applied directly to your account by trading in an eligible phone. The credit will be paid out in installments over the course of 24 months.
You can also get $300 in credit over the same period if you decide to add a new line. You can find the entire list of eligible trade-ins on the Verizon website.
AT&T has a buy two, get $700 back in credit deal for iPhone XR purchases. There are quite a few hoops you have to jump through to get this deal, however.
First, you have to buy both phones through AT&T Next with wireless (a minimum $80/mo combined after discount).
You'll also need DIRECTV (minimum $29.99/mo) to qualify. In addition, one of these phones must be a on new line.
If you want to learn more, you can do so directly from AT&T.
Get a refund of up to $500 towards a new XR when trading in an eligible phone with Apple. The size of the refund depends on the model of phone you're turning in, but it doesn't have to be an Apple phone to qualify.
If your phone is not eligible, Apple will still recycle it free of charge. You'll have to check the Apple website to see if your phone qualifies.
T-Mobile is offering up to $390 in bill credits when you trade in an eligible phone with your purchase of the new XR. This requires opting in for a monthly payment plan, and a credit of up to $10.83 will be applied to your monthly billing statements.
The amount of credit you receive will be directly tied to the value of the phone you trade in, and your own personal credit history.
Check the T-Mobile site to see what phones are eligible for trade-in.
In addition, T-Mobile is bundling their Unlimited Plan with a new iPhone XR for just $40 a month on up to 4 lines. The full terms and conditions can also be found on the T-Mobile website.
Best Buy is offering an interesting incentive if you buy the new iPhone XR in-store.
You'll get a $275 Best Buy gift card if you trade in an iPhone 7 Plus or newer model when you make your purchase at a physical Best Buy location. That gift card, however, won't count towards the purchase of your phone.
Learn more at the Best Buy website.
In cooperation with T-Mobile, Costco is offering up to $390 cash back on an in-store purchase of a new iPhone XR. All you need to do is trade in an older phone!
For a full list of eligible phones and trade-in values, check out T-Mobile's website here.
While this may sound exactly like T-Mobile's native deal, Costco is offering part of the rebate in the form of a pre-paid MasterCard.
You'll receive the value of the trade-in phone as a bill credit, with the remainder mailed to you as a pre-paid gift card within six to eight weeks. So if you trade in an iPhone 7, you'll get a $100 bill credit and a $290 gift card.
Just remember that this deal only applies for new or existing T-Mobile customers.
Sam's Club has announced a special deal that will only be available for one day, November 10th.
If you're on Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular, you can get a $300 Sam's Club gift card with the purchase of select iPhone models.
Unfortunately, AT&T users only qualify for a $100 Sam's Club gift card. The eligible models are the iPhone 8 and 8+, XS, XS Max, and the new XR.
US Mobile, a smaller carrier that uses Verizon's infrastructure to provide service, is giving out up to $100 in service credits with your new iPhone XR. You don't even have to trade in an older device, but there are still some hoops to jump through.
First, you have to order a US Mobile Starter Kit (basically just a SIM card) from the company for $3.99 and enter the code CHEAP100 at checkout. Then, you have to buy a new iPhone XR.
The carrier doesn't sell the device directly, so you'll have to get it somewhere else. After you get your SIM card, insert it into your new XR and activate your phone with the same code, CHEAP100.
From there, US Mobile will give you a $100 service credit evenly divided over the course of 12 months. However, if your service plan costs less than $100 over that year, US mobile will NOT refund you the difference.
Xfinity Mobile is offering a $200 credit for customers who purchase the XR, start a new phone line for it, and port an existing number to said phone line within 60 days of their purchase.
Keep in mind, however, that you need to be an Xfinity Internet customer to take advantage of this deal and that the service uses the Verizon network.
This promotion is running through January 6th, 2019, and offers something a little different from most phone rebates. Instead of a bill credit, Xfinity will send you a $200 pre-paid Visa gift card within 16 to 18 weeks after your purchase.
The deal is good for each new iPhone you purchase (i.e. two new iPhones will refund $400), but there's a $1000 rebate limit per account. You can read the full terms and conditions from Xfinity here.
