Best iPhone SE deals: Save up to $650 at Apple, and $700 off at Verizon

It has been nearly two years since Apple launched the second generation iPhone SEAnd so far his successor, iPhone SE 2022, here. The iPhone SE update has been rumored for a while, but now that it’s official, you might be looking to replace your current iPhone SE with a new one. It may not cost you as much as you think. Carriers and retailers have come up with so many great deals for the new version, some even let you get the new phone completely free with eligible exchanges and eligible data plans.

One of the biggest upgrades to the iPhone SE 2022 is that it supports 5G, so you’ll be able to get faster data speeds on the go (assuming you’re in a 5G compatible region). Apple has upgraded the processor to its A15 Bionic chip, and it has the same strong glass used in iPhone 13 series. It maintains the same overall size and design as the previous generation model, which means there is a Touch ID sensor on the front. The 12MP rear camera is made even more powerful thanks to the A15 processor.

Best pre-order offers for iPhone SE 2022

While the iPhone SE may not get as much attention as iPhone 13 verb or the iPhone 14 will This doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of great deals to take advantage of. Below, you will find our collection of the best offers and deals that can help you get the new iPhone SE at a lower price.

Somewhat surprisingly, Best Buy doesn’t seem to carry any unlocked iPhone SE models. But if you are a T-Mobile customer, there is an offer you can take advantage of. Customers who use T-Mobile as a carrier can save up to $220 on their new iPhone SE with an eligible trade-in. Just note that you’ll either have to add a new line, or upgrade an existing line to get the discount, and you’ll be prompted to choose Pickup from Store as your delivery option.

If you prefer to buy your new iPhone directly from the source, you can do it for the iPhone SE. Apple has all carrier models along with the unlocked model. And if you’re already an iPhone owner and looking to switch to the new SE, Apple is offering up to $650 when you trade in an iPhone 8 or later. With a base price of $429, that means you can theoretically get the new SE absolutely free. If the trade-in value exceeds the cost of your new phone, you will receive an Apple Gift Card for the remaining amount. If the replacement doesn’t cover the full cost, you can pay the remaining cost in full, or split it into 24 months of interest-free payments when you use your Apple Card at checkout.

If you’re already a Verizon customer and have any unlimited data plan, Verizon offers up to $700 off iPhone SE when you upgrade a pre-existing line and replace an eligible device. Fortunately, even old and damaged phones qualify for this replacement offer, as long as there is no battery damage. Swap credits apply over 36 months, and you will require an installment plan to receive the discount.

Plus, if you’re in the market for a new iPad, Verizon is offering a discount of up to $200 over 36 months with the purchase of a new iPhone SE. This offer is valid for both new and existing customers, but requires that you have a data plan for the iPad in addition to the phone.

Unfortunately, AT&T is not offering deals on the iPhone SE at this time. While the product page allows you to trade in old phones and devices, you won’t earn any money for this purchase. You can buy the phone at full retail price or in 36 monthly payments starting at $12 per month for the 64GB model. All three colors are available, and you can choose from 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

New and existing customers on any Sprint or T-Mobile plan can save $400 on iPhone SE when trading in an eligible device. This comes in the form of 24 credits per month, but you’ll only pay $29 (plus tax) for the iPhone SE. And if you’re looking to add a new line to your plan, you can save up to $215 on iPhone SE across 24 monthly credits, no replacement required.

Spectrum is another carrier that has the new generation iPhone SE available for purchase, although the deals are pretty slim. The only offer is that you can save $100 on a new SE (or any new Apple device) with an eligible trade-in.

Metro has the best prepaid offer of any retailer or carrier right now. When you buy an iPhone SE at full retail price and convert your existing number to a $60/month unlimited Metro data plan, you’ll get an instant discount of $350. Meaning you get an iPhone SE for a single $80 purchase, instead of being discounted via monthly credits. If you want to buy your phone directly, this is the best offer you will find.

NB: Since Metro is owned by T-Mobile, this offer is not available to those who change their number from their existing T-Mobile plan.
