BestBuy is currently having "Apple Sales Event [bestbuy.com]" through tomorrow Saturday 12/9.
Update: Apple Sprint discounts [bestbuy.com] @ BestBuy still active this week of 12/10! Use Sprint discount for PM.
Update: Best Buy has this again for AT&T starting 12/17, Apple will likely PM upto 10%.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/appl...Id=6009638

- Call your local Apple Store preferably BEFORE opening, you'll get directed to Apple Phone Sales.
- Request BestBuy PM for ATT (BestBuy is selling AT&T for $100 less)
- Apple Store agreed to PM BestBuy max 10% for $94 max Unlocked Sim-Free ATT/TMobile/Verizon/Sprint
- Bought iPhone8 Plus 256GB unlocked, SIM-Free from Apple Store for 10% less = $855 + tax
- Got this after I tried calling Apple Online Sales a couple times (2/3 would not PM iPhone8)
- Picked up phone this evening, if you persist, you should be able to get $95 off
- This should work for either iPhone8, iPhone8 Plus
- Apple Stores will PM BestBuy upto 10% MAX

Good luck! Big Grin

EDIT: This is an A1864 model with Qualcomm Modem

So much effort. It'd be best just order from that ebay seller with no tax, free shipping, brand new.

$915 out the door. You just have to wait a week for delivery.

Edit: Any deals for 64g?

When it breaks down 6 months later they won't fix it because you abused it ....

Did she just go in person and show an ad?

Looks like the AT&T deal is over but Best Buy is still selling the iPhone 8 on Sprint for $150 off ($22.91/mo. with 24-month installments). Would that work for this price match deal on an unlocked phone at the Apple Store?

Absolutely should work! Just buy the unlocked, SIM Free phone from Apple ... Apple store does not ask for your cell phone number or wireless carrier. They'll just ask for your CC # lol.

Unlocked, SIM Free phone does not require any activation so can be used as a surprise gift which was a reason to get it! Such phones work will most of the carriers (ATT,Sprint,Verizon,Tm).

What also helped was calling from my iPhone (even though the purchase was for a different one). They verified my info, AppleID, etc. It took less than 5 minutes as a pickup in store purchase.

So looking at the Best Buy website, they only show a discount if you do the installment plan.. did that matter in your PM? Or did you take an ad into the store? Thanks in advance.
