Deals: A Look at the iPhone 13 Sales Offered by AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Best Buy, and More

iPhone 13, ‌iPhone 13‌ mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max pre-orders went live on Apple.com earlier today, and now you can also pre-order the newest Apple smartphones across many carriers and retailers in the United States. Carriers typically offer numerous deals and bonuses to ordering through them instead of Apple, and that's no different for the ‌iPhone 13‌ launch.

iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Carrier Pre Order Feature 2Note: 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

At AT&T, you can get up to $1,000 off a new iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max, if you purchase the new device on an eligible installment agreement, pay a $30 activation/upgrade fee, and trade in an eligible smartphone.

To get the maximum $1,000 off the new iPhone, you'll need to trade in an iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, or XS Max. A few Android devices are also eligible, and all must be in good working condition.

If you trade in an ‌iPhone‌ X, XR, or XS you'll get $700 credit to put towards the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌, and an ‌iPhone‌ 7, 7 Plus, SE, 8, or 8 Plus will get you $350 credit. Credits start within three billing cycles after trade in is completed.

Shoppers should note that this offer is not an early upgrade program, and the trade in device can not be on an existing installment plan on AT&T. For existing customers looking to upgrade their ‌iPhone‌, you can get up to $500 off the ‌iPhone 13‌ or ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌.

T-Mobile/Sprint

T-Mobile has introduced a new "Forever Upgrade" offer this year, allowing users to get ongoing discounts on new iPhones every two years. Specifically, if you trade in an eligible smartphone you'll get up to $1,000 off ‌iPhone 13‌ or 13 Pro on the Magenta MAX or Sprint MAX plans.

Then, in two years you can get up to $800 off the newest ‌iPhone‌ and every two years after that. T-Mobile says that customers will be able to access this $800 credit every two years "forever."

Additionally, if you're on another T-Mobile plan, you can get up to half off the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ via 30 monthly bill credits, or up to $500 off the ‌iPhone 13‌. Both of these deals require an eligible trade in.

You can also buy one ‌iPhone 13‌ or iPhone 12 and get a second one free (up to $800 credit) with 30 monthly bill credits. This requires you to add a qualifying line on any T-Mobile plan.

Verizon

At Verizon, current and new customers can get up to $800 off the iPhone 13 lineup with select trade in offers and on select unlimited plans. If you're switching to Verizon, you can get up to $500 to help cover the cost of switching, for a total of up to $1,300 off new models.

If you purchase an ‌iPhone 13‌ on a Verizon device payment plan, you can get up to $250 off select iPads or $150 off select Apple Watches. Apple Music is also included in the Get More Unlimited Plan, while all other plans have six months of ‌Apple Music‌ at no cost.

Visible

Visible won't have the ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ available to order until launch day on September 24. But once they do, if you port in your number to Visible and buy an ‌iPhone 13‌, you'll get a $200 digital gift card and a free HomePod mini.

Best Buy

In addition to carriers, a few retailers have also opened up pre-orders on the ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌. Starting with Best Buy, you can save up to $720 on ‌iPhone 13‌ and up to $1,000 on ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌.

The ‌iPhone 13‌ deal requires qualified activation and trade in of an ‌iPhone‌ 8 or newer, while the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ deal requires qualified activation and trade in of an ‌iPhone 11‌ or newer. These deals will run through September 23 and you'll have to trade in your old ‌iPhone‌ in a Best Buy store to see the offer.

Walmart

At Walmart, you can get $100 off the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. This offer is valid only on purchases made with valid installment plans. The retailer also has up to $1,000 off the new iPhones with eligible trade ins on participating carriers. Check here for more details about Walmart's offers.

I hate all this bill credit crap. Just give me a decent discount up front. They're just turning around and selling the traded in devices for more than they give you anyway. I don't want to finance the phone. I want to pay for it and be done.
I think a lot of you are failing to understand the bill credit process and how it works. You are going to pay for your carrier anyway. Why not let your carrier subsidize your iPhone and get the iPhone for free while you are paying your carrier? You are crazy to pay for your iPhone up front. You can always pay it off early if you need to, like if you switch carriers or just want a different phone. But while using your carrier, let them buy your phone for you. It's a 0% interest loan if you pay it off early for the part they subsidized. At best it is a free latest iPhone Pro model that only cost you sales tax and a $30 upgrade fee.

I've done it this way for years, usually paying a couple hundred dollars or so to go up one model and get more memory, etc. I am very happy with my iPhone 11 Pro 256GB, but considering today it cost me a $30 upgrade fee, and only $100 divided over 36 months ($2.78/mo.) to go with the 256GB model, I went ahead and upgraded since the trade in deal is so good to get better battery life, 5G, better screen, better cameras, and slightly larger screen (going from 5.8" to 6.1").

Also, the bill credit process works best if you have multiple lines and can hand down older phones to children as that way you can still get a new iPhone every 1-2 years. You can "buy" a new iPhone for your son or daughter's line, but you can use the new phone on your number (just put your sim in) and give them an older phone, switching phones and SIM cards as you need. You don't cancel any phone contract early but let it go to maturity if you want to get the most out of the deal.

This is actually making me hesitate on buying. Trading in my 11 Pro this deal basically gives me a free 13 Pro. Not sure if I want to be locked into it for 3 years though. Never did it this way, usually trade and pay in full. Anyone know if you DO want out early can you just pay the balance of the phone?
