iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max carrier deals: Buy one, get one $700 off; $0 per month with eligible trade & more

Last updated

Now that Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max have hit store shelves, wireless carriers are offering deals on the new devices. We're rounding up where to get the best discounts, including buy one, get one $700 off promotions.

AT&T Wireless

Kicking off our wireless deal roundup is AT&T Wireless. The wireless giant has added Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max to its popular "buy one, give one" program, which provides shoppers with $700 off when two qualifying devices are purchased. The promotion requires users to buy both devices on AT&T Next with a minimum wireless plan of $65 per month (combined) after the discount. It also requires a new line in order to secure up to $700 off in credits over 30 months. As with other wireless deals, if service is canceled, the device balance becomes due. An activation fee of $30 does apply.

Find out how to take advantage of the deal by visiting AT&T Wireless' website.

Verizon Wireless

Apple iPhone XS Verizon Wireless discount

Like AT&T, Verizon Wireless is running its own iPhone XS and XS Max promotion. Shoppers can trade in a used device and save $100 on the XS or XS Max when you upgrade, or $300 when you add a new line.

To qualify, you must have a qualifying trade-in that's in good working and cosmetic condition. You'll then see $100 or $300 over 24 months as a small monthly credit starting in one to two billing cycles. This ends when the balance is fully paid, or if you cancel or transfer your line to another plan. Luckily, if the market value of your trade-in is higher than $100 or $300, you'll get the full value as an account credit in one to two billing cycles.
