iPhone SE 2020: free w/ new line + Unlimited @ Verizon
Open a new line of service with an unlimited plan at Verizon and you'll get a free iPhone SE. Plus, you'll get 50% off Verizon's $40 activation fee. This is one of the best iPhone SE 2020 deals you can get right now. Offer is valid through August 31.

The iPhone SE 2020 is the perfect smartphone for cash-strapped Apple fans. It features Apple's latest A13 Bionic chip, a 4.7-inch Retina display, Touch ID sensor, and wireless charging. 

There are only two features the new iPhone lacks. First, there's no Face ID support — a feature that's been standard on all new iPhones. In addition, the new iPhone SE 2020 only has one camera on the front and back. Fortunately, the cameras get a boost from Apple's machine learning tricks. So despite the few limitations, the new iPhone SE is an excellent phone for just about anyone. 

This is likely the best iPhone SE deal we'll see till Amazon Prime Day. Verizon's offer is valid through August 31.
