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.


Walmart's offer is available in store only through December 1. The new iPhone must be activated by 11:59 p.m. on December 1. See page 11 of Walmart's flyer for more details.

Target will offer a free $200 Target gift card with qualified activation of an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max on Verizon or AT&T. This deal is valid through Sunday, December 1.


Best Buy is offering savings of up to $500 on an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro with qualified activation on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint and in-store trade-in of an older iPhone. Depending on the value of the iPhone traded in, this deal lowers the total price of an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max to $199, $499, or $599, respectively, with the cost divided into 24 monthly payments.

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.

Verizon and Sprint are offering a buy-one-get-one-free deal on the iPhone 11, with $700 in bill credits applied over a 24-month installment plan with the purchase of two new iPhone 11 devices, each with an unlimited data plan. Verizon has a similar deal for the purchase of two iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max devices.

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.
