Tax on $197.99 in store in CA.

$80 cash card when you get an iphone 6 with new line or an upgrade at costco.

There is a mail in rebate though.

Rebate here:

You can find the sprint and veriozon rebates on the website. I have confirmed in store they are offering the same rebate if you purchase any iPhone 6.

Costco still charges tax on the warehouse price. Confirmed.

Walmart charges tax on the full price of the phone now.

For the 3 carriers that Costco provides cell service to...
Go here and the MIR is there for each phone that qualifies or in stock.

Does NOT work with ATT NEXT program. If you are on a data plan, ATT NEXT is actually cheaper. Either way, you have to pay ~ $ 650 for iPhone 6 16 GB.
If you use ATT NEXT at COSTCO, they will give you a car charger and car phone holder free.

This is how ATT NEXT works...........

On AT&T NEXT plan, you pay monthly "installments" based upon the length of plan you select (20 for NEXT 12 and 24 for NEXT 18). All comes down to $ 650 for iPhone 6 16GB. You have to pay sales tax up front and then only the monthly payments. After 2 payments, you have the option to pay the remaining amount at once and own the phone free & clear. If you continue to pay monthly, based upon your plan (NEXT12, NEXT18 etc.) you will be eligible for a "free" upgrade in 12 or 18 months. However, You have to return the old phone in a good condition and the payments you have made are gone, and you start all over again with the new phone. This plan allows you to stay on the data based plan and just pay $ 15 per month per device.

On the 2 year plan, you do get the iphone subsidized up front (after paying taxes and activation fees), BUT you lose the $ 15 per month charge and you pay $ 40 per month. That is a $ 25 per month more = $ 600. With the up front payment, this plan COSTS MORE than ATT NEXT.


One distinguishing point is that you return the phone for NEXT but not for the 2 year susidized plan, the phone at the end of 2 years still seem to be worth 2-300 on open market rate, possibly reducing cost to only the monthly increase of $25 each month

Is this online only?

edit: pdf says

Purchase and activate a qualified AT&T device on a 2-Year New Agreement or a 2-Year Qualified Upgrade at Costco or on Costco.com

iPhone 5s 16GB: $75 Costco Cash Card
iPhone 6 16GB, 64GB or 128GB: $80 Costco Cash Card 2.

Agreed that it's best to avoid Walmart for mobile contracts. Too bad the Costco deal is AT&T only.

great deal. for those who do not have costco membership, i have been noticing for the last 2 years BB has the latest iPhone for $125 for new/upgrades between thanksgiving and christmas.

It does not look like At&T Next qualify for the rebate. It says signing the agreement in rebate form.

And do you have to pay activation fee when buying from costco?
