The deal is in-warehouse only, not online. Must be existing (upgrade) or new Sprint subscriber. Every Sprint subscriber with a compatible, regular plan that can be dealt with by a national retailer (no SERO, SWAC, free year, kickstart, etc) and eligible upgrade can upgrade in-warehouse. If your local Wireless Advocates kiosk does not have the phone in stock, it will be mailed to you after performing the upgrade in-warehouse. You must file for the $500 Costco cash card online after the fact.

Phones MUST be financed on 24-month installments, no outright purchase or 18-month leases. If your account/line where the upgrade occured is not active when the $500 Costco cash card is delivered in 14 weeks, you will not receive the cash card. If you pay off the installment before that you may jeopardize your GC. If your account is a no credit check account, you cannot finance phones. If your plan has an ongoing promotional discount for BYOD and NOT financing a phone, it will disappear when you finance one and revert to regular rates.

Basically all Sprint phones 2 years and older are being cleared out, and nothing from within the past 2 years (XR/XS, 11/11 Pro) are eligible for this promotion. Availability of phones in the eligible list may differ according to your Costco/Wireless Advocates region. Some examples of people who have gotten in on the deal:

"I was there today. I upgraded all 5 lines. They don't have Sprint phones in stock so they will mail them all to me.
I didn't ask for the price of X, probably too expensive.
iPhone 8 Plus was $450 but OOS.
Order 1 of iPhone 7 Plus 128GB for $449,
1 of iPhone 7 128GB for $399,
3 of iPhone 7 32GB $349 each.
Only paid the tax upfront and will be installment.
All phones will be free after the $500 Costco card, then probably will be traded in for iPhone 12 this Nov."

"I spoke to a rep at Wireless Center. iPhone 7, 8, 7Plus, and X are still available for this offer.
8Plus is sold out.
iPhone X was at $899.99 before the $500 cash card"

"For a Galaxy S9+ I paid $49 tax in store. Expecting $700/24 = $29.17 charge per month for 24 months. $500 Costco Card coming. $30 activation fee is supposedly waived. Effective cost for a GS9+ = $249"

Do not try to screw around with the cell phone vender or attempt to game anything, you will be regionally banned as in previous deals:

There have been issues with warranty regarding these devices. Some may very well be refurbished. Call your manufacturer with your IMEI to see if they offer warranty service, and if not, if they could manually extend their warranty for 12 months if you provide them with your order invoice. Samsung has at least accepted this for some users.

The catch is you need to use Sprint
All iphones do not have a monthly credit as part of the promotion. All have a $500 Costco gc promotion value.

Buy phone, pay full price. Receive Costco gc in 14 weeks.

i7 32GB: $349 + tax

pay for four months' service. For some, that is $25/mon/line + taxes.

Receive $500 gc.

Phone cost is zero. You can unlock it after 50 days of use.

Resale value is about $200. Do five lines and net phones with a collective value of $1000.00.
No monthly credit if you are buying a iphone 8 or 8 plus

Buy, keep it active for 50 days on sprint, request unlock, profit

Whats the catch? Just upgrade to 8 plus for $450 and get a $500 costco card?

I have 5 lines on unlimited plus for $100 a month. Will the plan change if we do this?

24-month credit is the catch I think.

What happens when Spring merges with TMob? Will these phones be able to access all of TMobs bands? Do they keep their Sprint plans?

This and card terms state "up to 14 weeks for processing" so potentially few months of sprint service will be needed.

Good deal. But I don't see iPhone 7/8/X for sale. Only iPhone SE or iPhone XR/Xs/11.
