Sprint offers a $350 discount on the iPhone X if you trade in your old smartphone


Apple's iPhone X will be available for pre-order starting this Friday, but some carriers will probably jump the gun and announce their special deals on the flagship a few days earlier – just like Sprint did today.

Since the iPhone X's price starts at $999, any discounts would help make it a better deal. Sprint announced today its iPhone X promotional deal, which allows customers to save up to $350 when they buy Apple's upcoming flagship.

The deal is only available through Sprint Flex leasing and implies customers to trade in their old smartphone for the iPhone X. The following devices are eligible for the deal: iPhone 7and 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, S7and S7 edge, Note 5, LG G5, G6, and V20, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Moto Z Droid, Z Play, Z2 Force, Z Force Droid, and Z2 Play, BlackBerry Keyone, and HTC U11.

If you're willing to trade one of the smartphones listed above, then you will be able to get the iPhone X for $22.22 per month as part of an 18-month leasing program. If you decide to keep the phone, then your monthly payments will increase to $41.62 for another six months.

However, if you do want to trade in your iPhone X for another lease at the end of the 18-month program, then you can do so without having to pay increased monthly payments.

At the end of the day, you should be paying around $650 for the iPhone X instead of nearly $1,000. One last thing worth mentioning is the deal will be available for new and existing Sprint customers.

That’s funny, because you wont own your iphone x. You give up your current phone you own for a discount on your rental. That is comparable to giving up the house you own in order to get a discount on a rental property.

Wrong. Because like a car, you have an option to buy when the lease is up and you can still make monthly payments too. Just like TMO jump. I mean you can't use it for free. And most only keep it now until next models. They are all throw away. I think the Note 8 BOGO deal was a better deal, and if you wanted to buy it, you coukd trade in a flagship and get Up too $400 off. So either way the Note 8 was less. But any deal that saves you cash is a good deal. But carrier's can do better on deals though.

PA, apparently you guys don’t know how Sprints leasing deal works. After leasing a phone for 18 months, you have 2 choices: trade in the phone for a new one or pay a fair market price for it. You do not have the option to pay off a balance of what you’ve already paid in order to keep the phone. The fair market price of an iphone x could be anywhere between $1 to $998.

I think you are wrong. The lease allows you to upgrade to another iPhone, without coming up with any money. The phome is $999. You pay taxes upfront and th3 phone actual retail price is billed at at 24. But you will satisfy the lease after 18 months. If after the lease you want to buy, you pay the balance which is what you haven't paid. So in this case you pay $650 over 24 payments and after 18 you can trade up or if you wanna keep it, you have to pay the 6 months that are left. I think its you who is misunderstanding. Unless Sprint leasing is not the same as every one else. If so then it's not a lease. https://www.sprint.com/en/landings/sprint-lease.html#end-of-lease

The link says at the end if the lease you trade to a new phone or you have the option to buy based on the remaining balance of th4 phome. Which you can pay off in 6 payments, those payments could be higher or lower then yoir original payment. Because they all give more discounts if you lease in hoping you renew on a new phone.

You don’t pay taxes upfront on a lease. It’s spread throughout the 18 month lease.
