47,211 Views
iPhone XS 64GB is $600
Sprint customers get $500 Costco Gift Card Rebate for eligible upgrade / new line. Kickstart Lines and "No Credit Check" Accounts do not qualify.
Valid 6/19 - 6/25/2020


Order must be made at Costco kiosk. The kiosk will ship it to your address.

Device must be financed with installment plan ($25*24 months). Only tax will be due at the kiosk.

To request sim unlock, device must be fully paid off (installment plan can be paid off early) and be active on sprint network for 50 days.

Rebate form must be submitted online within 30 days. Rebate will be fulfilled within 14 weeks.


Other phones also qualify for the offer. But I chose to post only about XS because it's the best value.

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 get this. Costco Wireless Advocates kiosk will ship the phone to you and print out a rebate form. You must file for the $500 Costco Cash Card online using info from that form.

Phone MUST be financed on 24-month installment. No outright purchase or 18-month lease.

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.

If your account / line which was upgraded is canceled before $500 Costco Cash Card is issued (in 14 weeks), rebate may get denied.

technically it's a completely different deal. the list of phones and rebate amounts get changed each week.
i made the thread to let people know XS has $500 rebate now. it didn't qualify for any rebate before today.
so the detail about XS is buried inside 100 pages.

Am I right in saying that if you are on Sprints unlimited kickstart deal, that rate plan will be changed to a different rate?

Same question. For unlimited KS and no credit check account, I am out of luck?

For my math let's say I live in CA so 8% tax. Phone is $650. I need to stay on the network for 4 months (wait for gift card to arrive 14 weeks and unlock phone 50 days) with cheapest Normal plan that's 4x$65=$260. So essentially I will be paying 650+260-500=$410 for a new iPhone XS plus 4 months of service? $475 to be safe?

This deal requires you to finance the phone (at least until gift card comes). No credit check accounts and Kickstart are BOTH BYOD or outright purchase only accounts (no financing).

Fair enough, for alerting people to this one phone. Would follow the other thread as well as that's where the "action" is right now (i.e. insights, etc.)

Still two weeks away from hitting my 90 days for the $300 port in card, but need a new phone. Not sure if I should wait until I get the port in card or this upgrade would be considered a totally separate offer.

it's a totally separate offer. there's nothing in the terms of port-in offer about upgrades/changes not being allowed.

Thanks. If I sign up a new account with regular unlimited basic plan ($60 a month plus taxes/fees) and also with a new number, can I port in a number let's say 1 month after and still get this offer?

If by "port in a number later" you mean add a line, yes. If you mean replace that initial line # with your actual "permanent" cell number later, no.

For the latter, Google Voice is your friend, or just suck up losing out on current plan and transfer your real number from the start. I am suffering now with Sprint 5 lines for $100 Plus, which isn't available anymore, and none of those 5 #'s are my main lines that I need on the plan

You can always get a new number on existing Sprint line, though they give it to you (you can't port in a replacement # etc).

You can add your real # as an additional line, and after gift card arrives, cancel original line. Depending on circumstances and # of lines and/or promo line costs, this might not bother you. i.e. if you only had one line, added your real line and, then dropped initial line no biggie. But if signing up for 5 lines (free 3,4,5th lines for a year) then cancelling a line will have big impact on monthly costs.

i asked the kiosk rep this today. he said it won't affect rebate. but use your best judgment.

sprint rep told me over the phone today that they allow replacement port-in numbers. and there's no charge. t-mobile charges $15 for number change.
