Upgrade strategy to iphone X from iphone 7/7+

0 Deal Score
I currently on an T-mobile plan where i would receive an credit back for my iphone 7 ie no cost to me. I am planning to buy an iphone X.

Based on most of the online chatter looks like there is not going to be any offers from the service providers. At best i might get $300 for my phone which is equal to what i owe. It is as good as giving away my phone for free.

Should i hold on to my iphone 7 phone and buy iphone X out right as my current phone will continue to receive the service credits? After an year if my iphone 7 is worth even $100 then that would be my profit?

suggestions pls

In a year if the phone depreciates in value from 1000 to 100 as you're worried about, then it seems like your best deal would be to wait a couple years and pick up an iPhone X for $100.

If you're right then you saved $900. If you're wrong and the phone holds more value than $100, then you'll have more money to put toward the phone.

Either way, this is Slickdeals. Smart money is buying used if there are no deals. The alternative is buying new at MSRP, which is way outside the scope of what this site is all about.
