Crazy: The iPhone X can cost over $3,000 on Amazon


Amazon is not among the official channels that are offering Apple's iPhone X, but various third-party vendors can use Amazon's platform to re-sell the new handset. Right now, if you're searching for an iPhone X on Amazon, you'll find that you can order one for prices significantly higher than those available at Apple and major US carriers.



 



One particular third-party seller says it can ship the iPhone X in 2-3 days - which sounds nice, given that stock shortages are expected to affect the device's general availability. However, to get the iPhone X in 2-3 days from said vendor, you'll have to pay a crazily high price: $3,499 for the 64 GB model, or $4,499 for the 256 GB model.



 



Normally, the iPhone X 64 GB costs $999, while the 256 GB version is sold for $1,149. Pre-orders have been open since last week, and the new smartphone will be officially launched tomorrow, November 3, with some units (likely not many) being available in Apple Stores for walk-in customers.



 



We're certainly not advising anyone to buy the iPhone X via Amazon, unless they desperately want to get the handset fast, and don't find it anywhere else.

And that hurts you how? Are you the one paying for it? I always wonder why some people take issue with how others spend their hard earned cash?

Why do you wonder why people take issue? Does it hurt you in any way if people judge? And it's not always hard earned cash

So now you know how everyone makes their money? Are you with the IRS?

Not always hard-earned suggests there are exceptions to the hard-earned part, not talking about everyone. So no I don't know how everyone makes their money, but common sense tells me there are plenty of people who don't work hard for their money.

Man, I'm so sad I didn't flip some. Could have gone on world tour by flipping just 10 or so.

iSheep will happily pay whatever amount it takes to say they have one, even if they forego their rent to do so. I know 2 people who are those sheep. priorities.

The actual sales prices on eBay listings are closing at $1300-1500 on 64 gig and 1400-2000 on 256 gig version. I let my x reservation go was hoping prices would be in the $2500 range. Guess the sheep are to poor or the demand is not as high yet. Maybe around black Friday it will increase the scalp prices if production keeps lagging

And by the time they pay all the eBay fee's and paypal fee's they are not making much of anything.

That doesnt mean anyone is buying it....I dont think anyone will pay more than $200 to have the 256GB on Nov 3rd.

I like how they're trying to look generous with the "FREE shipping".

iPhone x is a very sought after phone. I would share a link but PA gave a warning about links. I’m a little confused because there is a dude on here who may have 2 or 3 links in a single comment. With maybe 15 real wordy comments per article. Anyone know the actual rules to links?

Not surprising, some people have more money than they know what to do with. I forget if it was the iPhone 6 or 6s, but the first one to come in gold was selling for over $2000 on EBay.
