Deals: Carriers Kick Off iPhone XR Promos, Anker and Choetech Launch New Charging Sales, and More

Today is iPhone XR pre-order day, and like with previous iPhone models you are able to pre-order the XR from all of the major cellular carriers, most of which are offering promotions. If you haven't pre-ordered your iPhone XR yet, check out the list below to see all of the various deals and offers you can get when buying the colorful new iPhone.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.
  • AT&T - Buy one iPhone XR and get another $700 off / both must be bought on AT&T Next with wireless (minimum $80/month) / must have DirecTV (minimum $29.99/month)
  • Verizon - Buy any iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, or X and get the 64GB iPhone XR at no cost, or get $750 off a higher capacity / must add a new line to one of the iPhones / bill credit of $31.25 over 24 months starting in 1-2 billing cycles
  • T-Mobile - Get T-Mobile Unlimited with iPhone XR at $40/month ($30 for the plan and $10 for the iPhone XR) for four lines / qualifying credit, finance agreement, and trade-in required (including iPhone 7/7Plus and 8/8 Plus)
  • Sprint - Get the 64GB iPhone XR for $0/month when purchased on Sprint Flex lease with eligible trade in (including iPhone X, 8/8 Plus, and 7/7 Plus) / $31.25 bill credits applied within two bill cycles / requires 18 month lease with new line of service or eligible upgrade and approved credit
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.

Besides the iPhone XR, there are a few other deals going on as we head into the weekend. Over on Amazon, Anker has introduced two new discount codes for its premium nylon USB-C to USB-A cables of varying sizes. Additionally, Choetech has introduced a trio of new discount codes for shoppers interested in stocking up on cheap and reliable wireless chargers and car chargers. Check out all of these sales and a few others below:

There is no website with this info (although some ATT people will talk about it on /r/att)

You have to get someone in retention to agree to do it.

Thank you. Just called them and got the prices and it all sounded great till CSR told me that the phone will be locked for those 2 yrs to ATT.
I travel to Europe frequently and wanted to use their local SIM card for data and text. So this wouldn’t work for me. However it was a nice price 256GB was $699

Bummer, my brother just bought an iPhone X and Verizon isn't going to retroactively apply the promotion.

These deals are not deals for a majority of people. The best deal is if you have an AT&T Unlimited plan and call into customer retention to get 2 year contract pricing on the iPhone to get $450 off. They didn't change my line access fee or charge any activation fees. I have two iPhone XS Max 256 GB iPhones that I paid $850 each for after taxes.

Do you happen to know if you can get 40% off of two new phones, or is this only limited to one?


I think it’s for as many lines as you have on your family account.

I only have two and got quotes for both.
