Sprint and Verizon Offer Promotional Deals For iPhone X with Trade-In

iphone x

It’s October 27, which means you can officially pre-order your iPhone X.  We gave you a few ways that you can increase your chances of getting one, but what we haven’t told you about are the promotions.  That’s right, carriers are going to want your business, so they are going to be offering you some promotions.

Sprint

The iPhone X starts at $999.  But Sprint is going to take $350 off of that price if you trade in an eligible device.  With that trade in, you’ll get a $22.22/month payment for 18 months, towards the iPhone X.  But with like anything else, there are some caveats.  If you decide to keep the iPhone X after that last payment on the 18th month, the monthly payments will revert to the standard $41.62/month for the remainder of the time frame.    Which means the total price of the 64 GB iPhone X is $649.68.

Sprint is offering the promotion to both existing subscribers and new customers that switch over.  Which isn’t always the case.  They’re usually looking to lure new customers to their service, so this is actually a really good deal.

What’s interesting about this deal, however, it’s not just about Apple as far as the trade in goes.  You can trade in Android devices as well.  Sprint will take in iPhones dating back to the iPhone 6 Plus (nothing earlier guys), and also these Android devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge
  • Samsung Note 5
  • LG G5
  • LG G6
  • LG V20
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • BlackBerry KEYone
  • HTC U11

Verizon

Maybe not as good of a deal as Sprint, but Verizon is offering to give a subscriber up to $300 off the purchase of an iPhone X, as long as you have a device to trade in.  How does this one work?  Well, you have to be an existing customer and be part of one of Verizon’s unlimited plans – Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited.  If you meet these criteria, you can upgrade, but you’ll have to pay a $30 fee.  The promotion is available for new subscribers as well, but you need to sign up for one of these plans in order to get the “deal”.

Once you’ve jumped through those hoops, you can get the iPhone X through monthly payments – which is just like Sprint.  Except with Verizon you’re going to be paying $41.66/month for the 64 GB iPhone X.  Like Sprint, you can trade in the following phones to get this deal:

If you trade in a phone on this list, you will get $300 off:

  • iPhone 7 or 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s or 6s Plus
  • Google Pixel XL
  • LG G6
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus

If you trade in a phone on this list, you will get $200 off:

  • iPhone 6 or 6 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • Google Pixel
  • LG G5
  • LG V20
  • Moto Z Force
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge
  • Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
  • Galaxy Note 5

If you trade in a phone on this list, you will get $100 off:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5C
  • iPhone 5S
  • HTC 10
  • Moto Z Play
  • Galaxy S5
  • Galaxy Note Edge
  • Galaxy Note 4

Based on sheer numbers Sprint seems to have the better deal.  But if you have an older phone you will still be able to make a trade in with Verizon.  So maybe it’s a toss-up? If you’re thinking about an iPhone X make sure you check out any promotions that your carrier (or a new carrier) might have for you before making that purchase.  It’s an expensive phone so you want to get the most out of the deal.
