iPhone 13 Pre-Order Deals Saturday, 18 September 2021 – How will you Pre-Order it?

Cellular Carriers

I decided to combine a list of all of the Pre-Order deals that are available for the iPhone 13 for every carrier in the USA and UK. Let’s get into it.

USA Carriers

Apple.com/Apple Stores/Buying from Apple directly

Get $110 – $790 off when you trade in an iPhone 8 or newer towards the iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max. You can see all terms listed on their website here.

Get $110 – $790 off when you trade in an iPhone 8 or newer towards the iPhone 13 Mini/iPhone 13. You can see all terms listed on their website here.

These are both pretty straight forward. That’s the good thing about going unlocked, directly from Apple. Everything is straight forward and you can see before checking out how much you can get towards the new device and your total amount due.

I did not list the carrier promotions here as they are not as good as going with your carrier directly. The direct carrier promotions, listed below, all offer you more money off of the iPhone 12 or 13 line of devices. The iPhone Upgrade program is not listed here as I could not find the terms easily accessible online.

Verizon

You can save “up to” $1000 when you trade in your old or damaged phone. Plus you get $500 when you switch! Plus get AMC+ on us for “up to” a year!

The nitty gritty on this is pretty simple. It is only on “select unlimited plans” which sounds like it is on Get More, Do More, or Play More. These are only for Postpaid (credit check) customers. The trade in devices that receive the full $1000 are the iPhone X (10), 11, and 12 (all models), Google Pixel 4 (all models), Samsung Galaxy A71 5G, Samsung Galaxy Devices: Fold, Note 9, Note 10 (all models), Note 20, S10 (all models),  S20 (all models), S21 (all models), and more. You can see all of the terms and conditions here. The savings get applied as monthly bill credits towards your new device purchase which means you must have them on installment plans through Verizon.

In order to get the $500 when you switch, you must have the device on monthly device payments that is worth at least $700 and port your number. You will then receive a $500 Virtual Prepaid Mastercard within 8 weeks of starting service. Upgrades are not eligible for this promotion.

For the AMC+ on us for “up to” a year – it is 6 months with upgrades, 1 year for new lines. You must have one of the unlimited plans listed above.

AT&T

iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max – New & Existing Customers can get up to $1000 off the new devices.

  • If you cancel wireless service, your credits will end and you’ll owe the remaining balance on the installment agreement for the device purchased.
  • For new lines, if you cancel service on any other line on your account within 90 days of activating the line under this offer, device credits will stop.
  • If buying on the AT&T Installment Plan with Next Up, customer is responsible and will not receive any credits for the additional $5/mo. Next Up upgrade feature.

T-Mobile/Sprint

Get a new iPhone ON US and upgrade FOREVER.

All terms listed on their website here. Also, on Jman’s website here.

Get iPhone 13 Pro ON US, up to $1,000 via 30 monthly bill credits when you’re on a Magenta® MAX plan and trade in an eligible device. This is pretty simple, you can get the iPhone 12 Series or iPhone 13 Series of devices on an upgrade or new line EIP (equipment installment plan) and every other time a new iPhone comes out you will automatically get $800 off towards that new iPhone by trading in your current phone. If you don’t want to upgrade ever other year, that’s fine, the following year you will still get that $800. The value holds true until you upgrade. Plus you get $1000 off the 12 or 13 device you get today. The catch is that you must have the Magenta MAX or One Plus Sprint MAX, Plus and Premium Unlimited plans and you have to wait 2 years to upgrade to a new device. If you have a T-Mobile One, Magenta, or Simple Choice you would only get $500 off a new 12 or 13 device. You can see the full breakdown of how much you would get off on Jman’s website here.

Apple’s UK website does not seem to offer carrier promotions like it does in the USA. Also I could not find any information on the website directly for the iPhone Upgrade Programs which is why I did not include either of these here.

Sky Mobile

Sky Mobile is offering the base iPhone 13 with 128GB storage, unlimited calls and texts, plus a monthly data quota of 50GB for £42. Sky’s iPhone 13 tariffs allow you to roll over unused data for up to three years and stream an unlimited amount of video from Sky apps for free.

O2

For £30 upfront, O2 will give you a 128GB iPhone 13 with a huge 150GB data allowance for £48.98 a month. There’s also a 50GB tariff for £46.99 a month. O2’s iPhone 13 tariffs come with unlimited calls and texts, plus a limited, free subscription to either Disney+ or Amazon Prime.

Three

Three is offering a half-price tariff for six months, including a 128GB iPhone 13 with unlimited calls, texts and data for £31 per month (£29 upfront fee applies). The monthly fee doubles to £62 from month seven, however. Three also has a 30GB tariff with unlimited calls and texts for £56 a month, plus £29 upfront.

EE

EE will give you a 128GB iPhone 13 with unlimited calls and texts, plus 40GB of data for £59 per month after you pay £30 upfront. Reduce that monthly data allowance to 4GB and, for the same upfront fee as before, you’ll pay £51 per month. If, however, you want more data, EE offers a 100GB tariff for £63 per month and an unlimited data tariff at £68 per month. Both are subject to EE’s £30 upfront fee.

Vodafone

Vodafone’s £43 per month tariff (with £29 upfront) will give you unlimited calls and texts plus 25GB of data. For £46 you can double that data allowance to 50GB. Finally, spend £51 per month and you’ll get unlimited data, calls and texts.

Conclusion

Where are you going to be getting your phone? Will you be pre-ordering the new devices? Are you skipping this year?
