NEW LINE REQUIRED

NO TRADE IN REQUIRED

NO CONTRACT REQUIRED

Rebate in the form of a virtual prepaid mastercard.

Requires at least one new line activation (can be cancelled after rebate received).

Phones are required to be paid in full at time of purchase, and thus can be unlocked with T-Mobile.

Eligible devices: iPhone 14 series, iPhone 13 series, iPhone 12 series

9/16/22 - 9/25/22
Update on 9/22: deal renewed 9/22/22 - 9/28/22
Update on 9/29: deal renewed 9/29/22 - 10/5/22

Allow 6-8 weeks from fulfillment of offer requirements. Max 6 discounted devices/account. May not be combinable with some offers or discounts.

iPhone 12
iPhone 12 mini starting at $629 (64GB)
iPhone 12 starting at $729 (64GB)
iPhone 12 Pro starting at $999 (128GB)
iPhone 12 Pro Max starting at $1099 (128GB)

iPhone 13
iPhone 13 mini starting at $539 (128GB)
iPhone 13 starting at $629 (128GB)
iPhone 13 Pro starting at $899 (128GB)
iPhone 13 Pro Max starting at $989 (128GB)

iPhone 14
iPhone 14 starting at $719.99 (128GB)
iPhone 14 Plus starting at $809.99 (128GB)
iPhone 14 Pro starting at $899.99 (128GB)
iPhone 14 Pro Max starting at $989.99 (128GB)


So, my calculation for the "all-in" costs of two iPhone 14 this year is:

(Qty 2) iPhone 14 (128GB) = $956.38 ($478.19 per phone)
(Qty 2) iPhone 14 Plus (128GB) = $1147.18 ($573.59 per phone)
(Qty 2) iPhone 14 Pro (128GB) = $1337.98 ($668.99 per phone)
(Qty 2) iPhone 14 Pro Max (128GB) = $1528.78 ($764.39 per phone)

A really great deal is for two (2) iPhone 13s =$763.48 (or $381.74 per phone)

These calculations include 6% sales tax a time of purchase and assumes 3 months of $20 plan for the new line, which can be cancelled after rebate received. After this period you will have two unlocked iPhones that can be used with any carrier.

These prices are without any trade in....selling or trading your old phone(s) in elsewhere would bring cost down further.

Also, when buying from Costco you get a two (2) year warranty against manufacturer defects. The first year is through Apple and the second year through Costco. Not as good as Applecare+, but its no additional charge.

CostCo item #
iPhone 13 128GB item 1599608 black
iPhone 13 128GB item 1599617 blue
iPhone 13 256GB item 1599619 $719.99
iPhone 13 Pro 128GB item 1599714 gray
iPhone 13 Pro 128GB item 1599720 blue
iPhone 13 Pro MAX 256GB item 1599916 $989.99

How to check your local Wireless Advocates kiosk for inventory, assuming you have the item #. Unfortunately iPhone 13 256GB are OOS in my area but two different CostCo locations have iPhone 13 Pro MAX black and sierra blue in stock.

https://imgur.com/a/U4tjyA5

1) Call your local CostCo B&M [costco.com], press option 1, ask if they have item # in stock? If they don't, ask them to check the surrounding area. If you don't have the CostCo item # you could always just call the kiosk directly and ask them. If they provide you with an item # please update this wiki.

2) Assuming they say yes it's in stock and you want actual confirmation, call your local Wireless Advocates kiosk. To find their phone number, try a Google search [google.com] using your city and state.

Get two new lines. Wait for rebate. Cancel two new lines. Move new phones to old lines.

I'm guessing that either Apple or the telco (T-mo) is offering additional incentive to Costco for the iPhone 13 and 14 series but NOT for the 12 series; probably don't have large stock of the older 12s. Instead of telling you that they don't offer it, they allow you to buy it if you're willing to pay more.

For most new buyers - it's a no brainer to pick up the 13 instead of the 12, if you're not looking to go to iPhone 14 because of eSIM or looking to reduce costs.

Yeah....t-mobile deals not as good as last year.

So, my calculation for two phone 14s this year is:
Phone 1 = $719.99
Phone 2 = $719.99
Taxes $86.40 (6% sales tax)
Total = $1,526.38
Rebate = $630
Total = $896.38

If you assume 3 months of $20 per line plans ($180 total), your total out out pocket for two unlocked iphone 14 is $1076.38 (or $538.19 each).
> New Line Required
why is that a requirement always? do they expect us to make babies every year around September?
It's funny that Costco only accept Visa card but the rebate is Master card

I am not sure....Costco traditionally sells cheaper than everywhere else. I will find out the price when the stores open this morning and update the post.

Limited-time offer; subject to change. Qualifying credit, additional line (2+ total), & service required.

So you need service to get this.

The offer details don't state the minimum plan required. I did this same deal for the iPhone 13 last year and I am not on a high tier plan. I am/was on the regular Magenta plan.

The details on the deal from last year stated in my rebate form "activate 1 new voice line (existing customers) on any rate plan"

I would think this deal would be the same.
