T-Mobile’s $200 discount on the iPhone X isn’t as good as it seems

Starting from February 23, T-Mobile has announced it will be offer customers in the US a massive $200 discount on the new iPhone X. However, there’s a catch.

To benefit from this discount customers must hit a certain criteria. Interested customers are required to trade in an older phone and they have to pay the regular price upfront. This means, in the case of the 64 GB model, you are required to make a $279.99 downpayment and commit to paying $30 a month for two years, as well as the price of the associated data plan.

Customers can also use the offer on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, 7 and 7 Plus, although the deal on the iPhone X is holding the biggest appeal for many at the moment.This is a great deal on the very expensive iPhone that starts at $999! The offer cannot be used in conjunction with other offers and the $200 credit comes in the form of a prepaid MasterCard. The credit is in addition to the value of your trade-in device. The trade-in value can be used as store credit, if you make the trade in store, or it can be used in the form of a bill credit, if you mail in your phone.

To find out what your current device is worth, use T-Mobile’s online trade-in calculator.
