The iPhone SE 2022 is an excellent budget phone, and it's earned a spot on our list of the best cheap phones to prove it. If you want an iPhone without the usual Apple price tag, this iPhone SE 2022 is the phone you want.

Even though this iPhone is already a great value, that doesn't mean there aren't some amazing iPhone SE 2022 deals to be found.

For example, new Visible customers who purchase an iPhone SE (2022) will get free 3rd-Generation AirPods and a free $200 gift card (opens in new tab) of their choice. The phone will sell for list price of $429 (or $17.87/month). After three months, you can pick a gift card of your choice from the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, Lowe's, Mastercard, and more. It's one of the best Visible deals we've seen.

iPhone SE 2022: free AirPods 3 + $200 gift card w/ iPhone SE @ Visible (opens in new tab)
Verizon-owned Visible is offering a pair of 3rd-Generation AirPods and a $200 gift card free with the purchase of an iPhone SE 2022. Gift card options include Amazon, Best Buy, Lowe's, Mastercard, and more. This deal is also valid on purchases of the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, or iPhone 11. This deal is available while supplies last. 

In our iPhone SE 2022 review, we were truly impressed by the performance of this cheap phone. For our money, it's the fastest phone you can buy that costs under $500.

In fact, this phone has the same chip as the stellar iPhone 13. This gets you the same performance as Apple's flagship phone, while costing hundreds less.

Additionally, the iPhone SE 2022 has better battery life compared to the 2021 version, extending from 13 to 15 hours. Plus, there are new camera features like Photographic Styles and Deep Fusion. The 4.7-inch Retina HD display, 12MP rear camera and 7MP front camera have stuck around from the previous model.

While you're not getting a discount on the phone itself, you will get a $200 gift card of your choice that can be spent on anything from Amazon, Lowe's, Best Buy, and several other retailers. You'll also get a free pair of 3rd-Generation AirPods. These earbuds have excellent sound quality and several other useful features, too. They usually go for $179 at full price.

Don't know about Visible? Visible is a Verizon MVNO, or mobile virtual network operator. MVNOs provide cellular service using another carrier's towers — in this case Verizon's. That also means Visible customers can take advantage of Verizon's 5G service if they're living in an area where 5G is available and they've got a compatible phone.
