If you don't live in India
and don't have a recent iPhone in perfect working condition to give up in exchange for a big trade-in discount from Apple
, your money-saving options for the iPhone XR
are fairly limited. But while retailers like Best Buy can only offer modest $50 markdowns with monthly installment plans on select networks, Fry's Electronics is following up its killer iPhone XS deal
from yesterday with a similarly enticing iPhone XR promotion today
This is also good for just 24 hours in brick and mortar stores nationwide, definitely justifying that effort by shaving a massive 350 bucks off the regular price of the more affordable 2018 iPhone variant
. That essentially means you'll be coughing up a crazy low $400 instead of $750 for a brand-new iPhone XR
with 128GB storage space, a robust glass and aluminum construction, a decent 6.1-inch LCD panel, a surprisingly capable single 12MP rear-facing camera, as well as excellent battery life, powerful sound, a speedy Apple A12 Bionic processor, and modern Face ID technology.
Of course, you can't just pay the 400 bucks and leave your local Fry's store with an unlocked iPhone XR in your possession. Instead, you'll need to activate the device on a new line of AT&T service and agree to a 24 or 30-month installment plan. The former will require payments of $18.70, while the latter reduces the monthly fee to $14.96, down from $31.25 and $25 respectively outside of these super-limited promotional windows.
