Best iPhone 12 pre-order deals
Verizon is rolling out an aggressive pre-order deal offering new customers a FREE iPhone 12 if you switch from another carrier. You’ll need to sign-up for Verizon’s unlimited plan and trade-in your existing device to take advantage of this promotion. Existing customers can get iPhone 12 for as low as $15 per month when signing up for a Verizon Device Payment plan with unlimited service, while trading in your previous iPhone 8 or newer.
New and current AT&T customers can get iPhone 12 for FREE when trading in select smartphones and signing up for an unlimited plan. This will equate to as much as $800 in credits over the course of 3-months.
T-Mobile is bundling two iPhone 12s with unlimited 5G data service for $100 per month as its lead pre-order offer. The reduced price comes way of bill credits over the course of a 30-month agreement. Again, you’ll need to trade-in an existing device and switch service to be able to take advantage of this offer. iPhone XS or newer receives the best trade-in value.
Xfinity Mobile is taking $250 off any iPhone and giving existing customers a $250 gift card if they trade-in an existing device and upgrade. While this is a particularly aggressive offer with few strings attached, keep in mind that Xfinity Mobile is currently limited to Xfinity home customers.
This year, Walmart is serving up iPhone 12 pre-orders with up to $130 off depending on which carrier you sign-up with. Financing and a device payment play are required to cash-in on these savings, however, no trade-in is stipulated with this deal.
iPhone 12 Pro
Verizon won’t quite be offering up a free iPhone 12 Pro at launch, but there is still a notable monthly discount available. You can lock-in the iPhone 12 Pro at $18.70 per month when you trade-in a device. That number jumps to $23.29 if you’re an existing customer. This promotion will require an unlimited plan in both instances.
AT&T is being more aggressive than other carriers on the iPhone 12 Plus bringing the monthly cost down to $6.64 per month for new customer with an eligible trade-in. You’ll need to be on AT&T’s unlimited plan.
T-Mobile is serving up the same $100 per month for two iPhone 12 Pro devices and 5G unlimited service via monthly credits. Much like the iPhone 12 deal referenced above, a trade-in is required and the promotion is spread out over 30-months.
