This year’s Black Friday is almost here and the best discounts are here with it. With all the available discounts, many people have been wondering whether the tech giants prepared some nice Black Friday deals for their flagship devices. The iPhone X came out a few weeks ago, however, its hefty price-tag isn’t attainable for everyone. In this article, you can find the best Black Friday deals for iPhone X, but also other devices such as the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8.
Best Black Friday Deals For iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8
While Apple itself won’t offer any discounts concerning its new flagship devices, there are stores that will allow you to get them with a $300 gift card reward, or $200 to $300 off with the right qualifications. Up until now, you can get the iPhone X discount only at Walmart. If you buy the iPhone X at Walmart, you will be given a $300 gift card. However, you will have to activate your device on Verizon or AT&T networks, which means signing up for a monthly installment plan, with $0 down payment, which is available for qualified customers.
Although this is currently the only Black Friday deal regarding the new, futuristic iPhone X, analysts are confident that the smartphone will be discounted in the days left until the busiest shopping day of the year. A Nomura-Instinet analyst, Jeffrey Kvaal, predicted some Black Friday 2017 discounts when being interviewed by Investor’s Business Daily. According to Kvaal, there will be “aggressive promotions” on the iPhone X, despite it being Apple’s newest and most expensive iPhone yet.
“We suspect the need to maintain net (subscriber) add momentum will drive Sprint and T-Mobile to offer aggressive promotions starting around Black Friday,” he told Investor’s Business Daily in the interview.
His predictions have been supported by UBS analyst John Hodulik.
“We believe competition will heat up after the recent abnormal lull as the holiday selling season begins, the iPhone X becomes available and cable enters the mix.” Hodulik said.
“The iPhone X cycle stands out as the best chance in years to entice subscribers to shift carriers,” Kvaal added. “We expect both T-Mobile and Sprint to offer aggressive promos for Black Friday.”
That’s it for the best Black Friday deals for iPhone X, at least until, perhaps, more discounts get announced. We will, of course, update this post as soon as we find out more.
The same Walmart Black Friday promotion applies to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. You will be able to buy either phone and get a $300 gift card with the qualifying mobile carriers. As to other discounts, Best Buy offers $200 off the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with the qualified activation. Target allows you to get both devices with the qualified activation, with $0 down and a $250 Target gift card. Also, Sam’s Club offers a $100 Sam’s Club gift card with activation.
As mentioned above, we’ll be sure to update this post if more discounts emerge. As for the predictions, we hope they come true and that people who can’t afford the iPhone X at its original price, will be able to purchase it on one of the discounts.
