Sprint Customers: iPhone Xs Max 256GB at Best Buy $549 upgrade "Cash Price"

$549.00
+28 Deal Score
35,362 Views
Best Buy has the Apple iPhone Xs Max 256GB (Space Gray or Gold) for an upgrade price for Sprint Customers of $549.99 one time payment. No new line needed. $20 activation fee.

Yes this phone is 2 years old, and if you are adding a line or new sprint account, and those looking for BOGO, this isn't your deal as there are better offers for those situations.

But for those in the niche of only needing one phone or on a Sprint account like Kickstart (add line/cancel after ordering) or are leaving Sprint soon and don't want to finance. . .this is something to consider for a 6.5" iPhone vs. the price of an iPhone 11 Pro Max without adding a line, waiting on bill credits, etc.

Also available for same price Xs Max 64GB and Xs 64GB (but why)

The deal has been sweetened to $399.

Please defer to the new thread below that broke the new low price.

Happy Deal Hunting

Would buy if I had sprint. Good price. This will probably work with T-Mobile out the box also.

Is the sales tax calculated on $549? After how many months of service will Sprint unlock for a new line?

good point. Prices usually take a bit to start coming down no?

Pretty good deal for sure. New iPhone coming out this year won't have dramatic change. It will have slightly larger screen, maybe slightly less notch, 5G, better camera, more Ram, but for some it won't matter too much. For a lots of people, processing power that iPhone Xs Max has is plentiful.
iPhone 11 Pro max has same ram as iPhone Xs max as well, so I guess iPhone Xs max will be supported pretty long time as well.
There are some known issues with iPhone Xs max, but I didn't notice major issue with reception under Verizon.
Personally, I think discounted iPhone Xs max is a great deal, especially if it's low $500 range without bill credits.

How does the camera compare between the xs max, 11 and 11 pro max?

Sprint unlock policy is 40 days. Taxes, for me, show approx $45, so based on $549 and not $999 as it is an "on sale" cash price vs. a subsidized/finance price. "Cash Price" tax rules vary by location.

I have an iPhone xs Max only, so can't really justify, but I heard 11 pro does much better on low light I believe. I have no complaints with Xs Max though. 11 Pro and Xs max both have same 2X optical kinda zoom however.
Even though regular 11 has two lenses, it doesn't have 2X optical zoom like 11 pro and xs serires.

This is a very goood deal. If you already have a Sprint phone and are buying this as an "upgrade", this is a no-brainer deal. The best on the phone X Pro max thus far and therefore it should be frontpage. I guess teh moderators haven't made it frontpage solely because it is such a deal only for Sprint users and not others who will be compelled to get a new line with Sprint.
