On Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 10pm ET, Walmart will offer a free $300 Walmart gift card with your XR purchase. (The iPhone must be purchased via an installment plan).

Effective today, buy an iPhone XR at Verizon and get another iPhone XR for free. You must open a new line of service to qualify for this deal and you'll be credited for your second phone via monthly bill credits.

In other deal news, Amazon and Apple have reached an agreement that will allow Cupertino to sell more of its devices on Amazon, reports Cnet. The list of products includes iPhones such as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS. Having one more retailer selling Apple iPhones could usher in better deals. Although keep in mind that the report didn't address if Amazon will be able to offer discounts on the new products.

In the meantime, we've hand-picked the best iPhone deals and promos, including a very tempting free with trade-in offer and a buy-one, get-one deal. We'll be updating this guide regularly to help you get the best price for every major carrier and retailer.

Apple Store

Apple wants to make sure you never feel iPhone envy again. Purchase your iPhone XR from Apple via the company's iPhone Upgrade Plan and you'll pay $37.41/month. It's not the cheapest plan available, but it ensures you'll get a new iPhone every year.   


If you're looking for the best iPhone XR deal, look no further than Sprint. The carrier is offering the iPhone XR for $0/month with eligible trade-in and a Sprint Flex lease. Eligible trade-ins include everything from the original Google Pixel to the iPhone 7. This iPhone XR deal — along with Sprint's XS and XS Max offers — make Sprint the go-to carrier for iPhone deals.      


Walmart is taking $100 off the iPhone XR (all models) when you order it through them and activate it via Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint with installed payments. The discount is applicable to online and in-store purchases.

Eligible trade-in phones include a range of handhelds from the iPhone 6s to the HTC 10. (Newer phones will receive a higher credit). Magenta Friday deals go live on Nov. 16.
