Apple's recently discounted iPhone XR gets an additional $300 price cut at Verizon
Unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max, last year's iPhone XR is still around after the launch of the iPhone 11 trio, dropping from a starting price of $749 back in the day to $599 in a 64GB storage configuration at Apple and authorized third-party retailers like Best Buy.
But if that feels a little steep for a handset with a single rear-facing camera in tow when the $699 non-Pro iPhone 11 has two 12MP shooters on its back, you'll be glad to find out that Verizon is running a cool new sale with pretty simple requirements and (almost) no strings attached. You don't have to trade anything in or buy two iPhone XR units to qualify for this latest promotion, which lets you save a full $300 on the already reduced $600 retail price of the 6.1-inch device with an LCD panel and Apple A12 Bionic processor.
In a nutshell, you're looking at a fairly standard special offer requiring you to activate a new line of service on a monthly installment plan. If you do that, the aforementioned 300 bucks will be credited to your account over two years, which means you'll end up paying just $12.49 a month instead of $24.99 for a grand total of around $300 (down from $600).
Even better, you can also score a complimentary $200 Prepaid Mastercard with an eligible port-in of an existing phone number from a different carrier and new line activation on an unlimited Verizon plan. Don't forget to claim your freebie by visiting vzw.com/digitalrebatecenter and entering the "APPLE200" promo code after making sure you meet all the conditions mentioned above.
While the iPhone XR is naturally getting a bit long in the tooth, its value for money is impossible to deny (at 300 bucks), with stellar software support, a surprisingly capable single rear shooter, excellent battery life, superb speakers, and decent overall performance. And yes, you can get the half-off handset in a number of eye-catching paint jobs from Verizon, including yellow, coral, red, and blue in addition to black and white.
