Yesterday I was able to get an iPhone 8 Plus 64GB for $250 plus tax with a new 2 year contract. I paid for the phone upfront and there was no change to my unlimited data plan. The other option they gave me, since I was only interested in the 8 Plus or the XR, was the XR at $279 plus tax.
8 Plus normal price is $699, so quite a discount.
Apologies if this is a repost, I've only posted a few deals in my 10+ years on Slick Deals.
I called 1-800-288-2020 and confirmed I was talking to the loyalty department. After some pushing and prodding and telling them that someone on chat support offered me the 8 Plus for $249, they were able to find the deal. Don't let them tell you it doesn't exist.
PS: dependong on where you live, shipping may be insanely fast. No joke, some dude from a delivery service delivered my phone within 30 minutes of ordering it. I'm in Silicon Valley, yes.
