I've been looking at the Iphone 8 Plus for awhile. This had been $528 on visible before rebate, just checked this morning and the price has dropped considerably. Since the price is under $400, the rebate is only $100.

IPhone 8 Plus 64GB is $360. https://www.visible.com/shop/smar...one-8-plus.
IPhone 8 Plus 256GB is $384.

You can use the service for two months and get the $100 Prepaid Mastercard® Virtual Account.
You can also forgo the rebate and get the IPhone for a very nice price.


First month is $25, service afterwards is $40/month unless you get into a Party Pay group. Consecutive months can be as low as $25, go to the website to learn more. Pay for the first month when you activate, second month can be paid near the end on your first month of service.

I checked to see if this deal had posted, didn't see any prior posts.

QA Update: Only available in Space Gray 64GB

Caution Buying - THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH COMPETENT CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENTS - BILLING IS A MESS - NOT WORTH THE HASSLE AT ALL IF YOU USE THE PHONE FOR BUSINESS OR IF YOU NEED 100% RELIABILITY. REMEMBER YOU WERE WARNED!
PORTING IS EITHER VERY BAD OR WORKS GREAT.... IT'S ALMOST A COINFLIP.... IT IS POSSIBLE TO LOSE YOUR PHONE NUMBER IN THEIR PORTING LIMBO..... MORE LIKELY IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE AUTOMATIC NUMBER PORTING SYSTEM, EXPECT 5-14 DAYS FOR THE PORT TO COMPLETE IF THERE IS A PROBLEM

Visible customer service is overwhelmed because of the deals they are offering, can take hours to reply to you.

Service is 4g LTE only. All calls are VOLTE only. Will not work in areas with just 3G roaming. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Video streaming is throttled as well as tethering. Just an fyi

Visible also has problems [reddit.com] validating addresses [twitter.com] and they have no interest in fixing these issues.

Additional $5 Off Promo codes are available on Reddit. Referral codes aren't allowed on Slickdeals.

Do not use visible. I got charged 80 instead of the advertised 40 and then you have to prove to them you got overcharged for them to refund you. Also, you will never get the gift card. they claim an email was sent and tell you to contact a number that is either on maintenance or keeps giving you the round around. Then when you try to port because you can't take it anymore they make it super hard to actually port.

Phones are unlocked. I believe all IPhones that are CDMA certified are also GSM certified. If you read other posts concerning Visible wireless you will see that phones do not have to be activated on Visible. So yes, you can immediately activate on other providers.

I was hoping this one would stay low profile until the local Costco got some 11 pros in... The resellers will have this OOS shortly.

Get up to a $100 Prepaid Mastercard® Virtual Account when you buy an eligible device from us and pay for two months of service.*
Here are the deets. Buy an eligible device from us, pay for your first two months of service, and you'll get a Prepaid Mastercard Virtual Account sent to you via email. Purchase a device over $400 and you'll get a $200 Prepaid Mastercard Virtual Account. Purchase a device under $400, but still more than $50, and you'll receive a $100 Prepaid Mastercard Virtual Account*. Already have a phone you love? No problem. If it's compatible with Visible, just activate it, pay for two months of service, and we'll email you a $100 Prepaid Mastercard Virtual Account too.

*Some restrictions apply. See offer details, https://www.visible.com/promos/get200

I read on an older Visible post that the phones are used or have been sitting in a warehouse for a long time. Is that still the case? It's the return policy good?

Just to clarify, this info is straight from the Visible site.

Do phones bought from Visible come unlocked?
Yes, they do. When you order a phone, we'll also ship you a SIM to activate your Visible service for the first time. Instructions to activate your SIM will be provided via email.

Does Visible offer a warranty for phones?
You bet! All phones purchased on our website include the warranty from the original device manufacturer. In addition, all Visible devices come with a 14-day worry-free guarantee where you can return the device for any reason.

Can I return the phone and get a refund?
You'll have 14 days from the day the phone is purchased to return it. Just let Care know and they'll send you a return label. You'll have to turn off Find My iPhone and do a master reset before returning the phone. Once your phone is confirmed to be returned, your refund will be applied within 3-5 business days.
If you have financed your phone with Affirm, you can follow the same process. After Visible finishes processing a refund, Affirm will credit your loan balance for the amount of the refund.

As to the question about the phones being old stock, I don't have an answer to this. I just ordered my first phone from them.
