iPhone XS and XS Max Deals and Discounts
As shocking as it sounds, Sprint is offering to lease customers the 64 GB iPhone XS for $0 a month with an eligible trade-in. Seriously. You can also get the XS Max for only $4.17 a month.
To take advantage of either option, however, you have to opt in to Sprint's 18-month Sprint Flex plan. Additionally, the phones viable for the trade-in go all the way back to the iPhone 7.
You can read the full terms and conditions along with eligible trade-ins on Sprint's website by following this link.
If you want to go straight to the source and pick up your new phone from Apple, you're in luck. The tech giant has updated its Apple GiveBack trade-in program to include the last generation's models.
A working iPhone X, for example, can net customers $525 in trade-in credit, which is far and away the best trade rate we've seen so far. If you want to swap out your iPhone X for the new hotness, Apple is the best place to do it.
If you buy two iPhones from AT&T, the second one will grant you $700 in credit over the course of your term agreement. But there are a few caveats. To put it simply, you have to:
- Be a new or current AT&T customer
- Buy two iPhones at full price (either upfront or over the course of an installment plan)
- Add a new line to your phone service
- Either sign up for DirecTV or already be a subscriber
After that, you'll receive $700 in bill credit. You don't get a lump sum, however.
The credit is distributed in equally divided monthly installments to your bill over the course of your agreed contract with AT&T.
So if you have a 30 month contract, you'll get around $23.33 a month.
You should think very carefully about committing to this deal, as it's asking a lot of you. You can read the full terms and conditions by following this link.
Verizon is offering a $750 service credit when you order the XS, XS Max, XR, or X. However, you need to buy two phones at full price (either upfront or over the course of 24 months with an installment plan) to claim the credit. And one of those phones needs to be an XR or an X.
In addition, you need to buy a new line for one of those phones.
After you do that, the $750 service credit is doled out evenly over the course of 24 months (or $31.25 a month).
Also, this offer does NOT stack with trade-in credits. You can trade in your old device to Verizon for $100 or more, but then you won't receive the $750 credit.

If you're looking for a trade-in credit but you don't want to add a new line to your existing phone plan, T-Mobile will give you up to $390 in 24 monthly installments on your bill when you purchase the new iPhone XS or XS Max and trade in your old device.
However, you can't buy the new phone outright to take advantage of this deal, you need to use a financial installment plan.
You can find the full list of eligible trade-in devices and the full terms and conditions here.
US Mobile, a smaller carrier that utilizes Verizon's infrastructure to provide service, is giving out up to $100 in service credits with your new iPhone XS or XS Max. While you don't have to start a new line or trade in an older device, there are still some steps to this process.
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.
The carrier doesn't sell the device, so you'll have to get it somewhere else. After you get your SIM card, insert it into your new phone 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.
From 10/19 through 10/25/18, Costco members can visit the in-warehouse Wireless Center to get up to $390 back from T-Mobile when purchasing an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.
An eligible trade-in device is required to receive the maximum benefit (varies by phone model traded), which comes in the form of a single bill statement credit and a Prepaid MasterCard Card. This is a great deal for those who only need one phone and don't want to be tied down waiting for 24 months of statement credits.
