Apple

It’s time to save big on the new iPhone 14. Almost all carriers offer the iPhone 14 for free with a qualifying plan and an unlimited plan. Plus, Best Buy and Apple have some generous discounts if you can trade in a newer device.

Note that iPhone 14 Plus pre-orders don’t open until October 7. These pre-order discounts only apply to the standard iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Apple: Save up to $720 off with trade-in

Apple is offering a pretty straightforward iPhone 14 pre-order discount. If you trade in an eligible device, you could save up to $720 on your order. That’s almost the full price of a base model iPhone 14.

Unfortunately, Apple won’t be giving Android users a huge discount. If you can’t trade in an old iPhone, you’re better off buying the iPhone 14 somewhere else.

Best Buy: Save up to $1,000

If you don’t have an unlimited plan with your carrier, Best Buy might be able to offer you the biggest iPhone 14 discount. It offers up to $1,000 off an iPhone 14 with eligible trade-in and activation.

And to our surprise, Best Buy has a complete list of all eligible trade-in devices. You can check this list to see how much money you will get from a trade. (Best Buy will give you $350 for some very old Galaxy phones, which is interesting.)

Verizon: Unlimited Customers Save Big

If you’re a Verizon Unlimited customer, you can save up to $1,000 on an iPhone 14. That means you can get the base model iPhone 14 Pro for free. Verizon even accepts damaged phones as a trade-in, so minor cracks or scratches won’t hold you back too long.

Those who switch to a Verizon Unlimited plan get an additional $200 in bill credits. Plus, Verizon is offering $120 for a smartwatch when you buy the iPhone 14.

I should also note that Verizon has a new plan called “One Unlimited for iPhone”. This exclusive Unlimited plan comes with a free subscription to Apple One. That’s Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and iCloud+ free of charge.

AT&T: It’s all about unlimited customers

Customers with an AT&T unlimited plan could save up to $1,000 on the iPhone 14 with a qualifying trade-in. That means you can get the base model iPhone 14 Pro for free. (According to AT&T, you’ll get the $1,000 discount if you trade in a device that’s typically worth $230 or more.)

Unfortunately, AT&T doesn’t offer any benefits for customers who don’t have Unlimited.

T-Mobile: save money with or without an unlimited plan

Of all the major carriers, T-Mobile has the most generous discounts for iPhone 14 pre-orders. Magenta MAX customers can save up to $1,000 with a qualifying trade-in. And all other customers can save 50% on their new iPhone 14 when they trade in an older device.

Plus, T-Mobile is offering a fantastic “BOGO $700 Off” discount. If you buy an iPhone 14 or iPhone 13, you can get another one for $700 off!
