Deal: pre-order the Apple iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus from Costco and get a $50 or $100 mail-in rebate

If you're the owner of a US Costco card member and you have your mind set on purchasing an Apple iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, then you'll definitely want to learn more about Costco's new promotion. The retailer is offering its card members mail-in rebates of up to $100 when pre-ordering a new iPhone model.

Costco is offering different mail-in rebates for each carrier. T-Mobile subscribers are the luckiest ones, as Costco offers them a $100 mail-in rebate with the purchase of any iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus version. Verizon and Sprint subscribers get a $50 mail-in rebate on the Space Gray iPhone 6s with either 16GB or 64GB of internal storage, or the 16GB Gold iPhone 6s Plus. Unfortunately, AT&T customers lucked out, and will not be able to get a mail-in rebate. 

To be eligible for the mail-in rebate, which will arrive by mail in the form of a Costco Cash Card, you'll have to pre-order your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus by September 24th.

Although it's not uncommon for various retailers to offer mail-in rebates with the purchase of an iPhone, it's a bit unusual for these rebates to be offered anywhere near launch day, and we've never seen rebates being applied to pre-orders before.
