How to buy the iPhone X without going brokeThree ways to help you finance Apple's new thousand-dollar iPhone.
Apple says its new iPhone 10 is it's most advance iPhone to date. But it's also its most expensive. So if you just have to have it but your not quite sure how to afford it, here are three things you can do. Most phone carriers offer payment plans that allow you to pay off your device over a period of time. You can then swap out for the latest and greatest after 12 months or as long as 50% of the device has been paid off. Programs like T-Mobile's Jump on Demand give you three free upgrades a year. Or if you'd rather not be tied down to a specific carrier, you can always try Apple's own upgrade program. Apple's program works a lot like the wireless Here it is. The difference is you get an unlocked phone to use with any carrier in the U.S. And you get a year's worth of Apple Care insurance. Which would then free you up to shop for a better deal on a carrier and save even more money. If you're looking for a single line of service, Sprint's free year of unlimited is tough to beat. You'll still have to pay fees and taxes, and not all phones work on it, but it's free. Virgin also has a similar deal, but for $1 a year. The same goes for family plans. Sprint and Cricket are the current cheapest. And before you toss out that old phone, make sure it's helping you pay for the new one. Just because it's old to you, doesn't mean someone else won't be ready to **** it right out. Craigslist or eBay may give you the best price because you're dealing directly with the buyer, but you have to arrange delivery and payment. If you want someone else to do the dirty work for you, Best Buy, Amazon and Apple are just a few places that will buy them. but you'll get gift cards instead of cash. Eco ATMs give you cash, but may not give you top dollar. And if all else fails, you can always give up that Starbucks addiction for 9 months or forego the gym for a year.
