The best introductory iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR deal comes from US Mobile
But wireless service providers need a way to stand out, often offering at least semi-decent trade-in or BOGO (buy-one-get-one) promos shortly after the official announcement of an upgraded iPhone generation.
If you’re willing to deal with smaller prepaid operators, you can typically save even more while not having to jump through as many hoops. Case in point, US Mobile’s sweet introductory iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR discount.
This is an even smaller carrier than the likes of Boost Mobile, MetroPCS, or Virgin, nonetheless relying on Verizon’s “Super LTE” network, as well as allowing customers to build their own plans they can change and refine every 30 days.
That sounds pretty cool, especially when you can get $400 back on your iPhone XS order by signing up and maintaining a US Mobile service line for 12 months. Now, the operator won’t sell you the handset itself, and the $400 markdown actually represents a combined 24 monthly bill credits.
Still, the deal is fairly straightforward and hassle-free, requiring you to order a US Mobile starter kit with the “CHEAP400” promo code applied before checking out, and then activate your line using another promo code you’ll receive in an email. You’re free to bring the iPhone XR, XS, or XS Max from another carrier or, obviously, purchase it directly from Apple, with a cool $16.67 monthly credit showing up on your bill as soon as you begin paying US Mobile for its convenient custom plans.
