Of course, a few retailers are also offering promotions if you visit their stores to buy the iPhone XR. If you pre-order the iPhone XR at Sam's Club you'll get a $100 Sam's Club gift card, as long as you purchase and activate the smartphone by October 28 on an installment or two-year device plan. Sam's Club says that all major carriers are participating in the offer, and it will keep pre-orders up for the iPhone XR through October 21.
If you visit your local Best Buy store, you can get up to a $275 Best Buy gift card when trading in iPhone 7 Plus or newer models, which you can put towards an iPhone XR pre-order. If you choose to go the Best Buy route, the retailer also supports the carrier offers for Verizon (BOGO $750 off) and Sprint ($0/month on Sprint Flex lease with trade in). Note that this offer is only available in Best Buy stores and not online.
At Walmart, if you pre-order the iPhone XR online for in-store pickup you can save $100 with activation on an installment plan. Once the iPhone XR launches on October 26, you'll also be able to get $100 off the smartphone with an installment billing agreement on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint. Walmart says that this offer is available in select stores only.
