Despite being a few years old, Apple's iPhone X and iPhone 8 are still worthwhile purchases. Sure, the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR are the current flagships, but Apple's iPhone have excellent staying power. Even better: You can get them for a lot less than the cost of the current-gen iPhones.
For instance, Apple currently sells the unlocked iPhone 8 for $599, whereas the unlocked iPhone 8 Plus is priced $699. When you trade in an eligible iPhone, you can get up to $500 off the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Depending on which iPhone you swap, you could pay as little as $99 or $199 for the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, respectively.
If you don't have an iPhone to trade-in, you'll pay $24.99/mo. or $29.99/mo. for the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, respectively for 24 months with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or Verizon.
Best Buy is taking from $250 off iPhone X purchases made with Verizon as well as $150 off with activation and a new line with Sprint. Those savings are spread out over the course of 24 months.
Best Buy also sells an AT&T-tied iPhone X for $250 off at $26.66/mo. for 30 months.
If you're looking for deals now, Apple has marked down the price of its previous-gen iPhones and even though it ceased production of its iPhone X (at least for now), carriers are selling their remaining inventory for as low as $899.99.
Many carriers also have dedicated trade-in sites where you can appraise the value of your current iPhone and potentially lower the price of your new purchase even further.
