Black Friday 2019: Best Deals on iPhones

Black Friday is upon us and that means many deals on iPhones, from straight-up discounts to trade-in and financing incentives. Below, we've rounded up some of the best offers available for iPhones in the United States.

Unfortunately, iPhone deals rarely come without strings attached, so be prepared to purchase a device on a carrier installment plan in most cases and make sure to read all of the fine print when signing up.

iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max

Walmart is offering some of the best Black Friday deals on the latest iPhones this year, including a $300 Walmart eGift card towards future purchases with the activation of a new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max on a qualifying AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint device payment plan.

You can get up to an additional $250 on another Walmart eGift card with an in-store trade-in of a qualifying older iPhone in good condition, for a total of up to $550 in Walmart eGift cards for the latest iPhones.

T-Mobile is offering up to $700 off the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max, or the iPhone 11 for free, with the trade-in of an iPhone 7 or newer in good condition. The credit will be applied over a 24-month installment plan.

Fine print: only with unlimited data plan + new activation or credit toward future purchase. I call it a scam.

Is it just me or is Target marking up at least some of their iPhones? Apple sells the iPhone 11 Pro 256GB for $1149 where Target is charging $1199, granted with a $200 gift card but that's still pretty misleading.

Any time I see claims of an iPhone "deal" involving a carrier, I save my time and move on. Way too many restrictions and hassles.
