    Post Apple's Pain = Your (Potential) Gain



    Bloomberg is reporting today that new iPhone sales are falling short of expectations—so much so that Apple marketing staff have been pulled from other projects to address the situation. The result is potentially good news for anyone in the market for the company's latest and greatest:

    On Sunday evening, Apple kicked these efforts into high gear, adding a new banner to the top of its website advertising the iPhone XR for $449, $300 less than its official sticker price. The deal, noted with an asterisk and described at the bottom of the page, requires customers to trade in an iPhone 7 Plus, a high-end handset from two years ago.
    Unfortunately I don't think any comparable trade-in deals are available to Canadian buyers, at least not yet. Apple's GiveBack program in Canada is apparently run by an outfit called Brightstar; their current trade-in value for a 256 GB iPhone 7 Plus is only $315 CAD, or $237.75 USD. And I can see no asterisks on Apple.ca

    We'll have to live vicariously through our American friends, it seems. Be sure to let us know if you snag a sweet discount!

    My sweet discount was $365* off of an iPhone X with a Koodo medium tab while retaining $60/10GB/ULNW. I only wish they still had the 256GB version available like they do at Bell and Rogers.

    *$365 off of the carrier-inflated $1275 retail price, not sure what Apple would charge as it's no longer listed.

    Anyone know if Apple GiveBack can be combined with the iPhone Upgrade Program?

    Sure, if you trade in something else not tied to your upgrade. I traded in a couple older Nexus devices and they just send you a digital Apple store GC.

    I took advantage of the program and traded 3 6Ss and a 6 for $750 in gift cards. Thank you Apple.
