If you have not been living under a rock all this time, you know that the iPhone is better than all other phones. It may be more expensive, but it features better hardware and software integration, not to mention that the iPhone guarantees an unparalleled experience. You get the best apps, the software is always up to date, and you can take great photos with accurate color. The iPhone is a high-end product, which means that buyers have to dig deep into their pockets to get their hands on such a smartphone. If you take into account everything that goes into the iPhone, the price is justified. But what do you do if you want an iPhone, but cannot afford one? Well, there are several things you can do to save money when buying a new iPhone. Keep on reading to find out more.
Be on the lookout for promotions and discounts
Apple does not always put up the Sale! Sign, but that does not mean that there are no opportunities to get discounts. Electronic retailers, as well as cell phone carriers, offer good deals, especially during the holiday season. If you want to make a significant purchase, keep your eyes on Apple promo codes. You can get a discount no matter what product you buy. When you shop online, apply the promo code before finalizing the order. Complete the checkout process and enjoy your savings. Apple continues to have coupons on related websites. Use your favorite search engine and type in the words “promo codes”. This will generate a list of websites that offer promo codes.
Perhaps your company is entitled to discounts. If you are buying items for your own personal use, you may get a discount at the Apple store. The multinational technology company works with many businesses when it comes down to product placement. Reach out to someone in the HR department and see if you are eligible for any discounts. Maybe there is an employee purchase program that you did not even know about. The discounts vary based on the product that is being purchased. It goes without saying that more expensive gadgets receive bigger discounts. Employees are restricted to 2 devices per year.
Get used to the idea of having a small phone
The market is now making room for phones that are 5G capable, which use more power and require more battery and space. They tend to be bigger and, unfortunately, more expensive. If you do not want to pay an arm and a leg for a new smartphone, choose a smaller model. You do not necessarily need an immersive screen, a bigger battery, or more wireless transfer power. The phone is the most important gadget in your life, but you do not need a supercomputer when leaving home. Apple recently announced that they will launch the second-generation iPhone SE, which offers decent performance and a nice camera.
The new iPhone SE is capable of handling the most demanding tasks and ensures super-fast Web surfing. You can use your small phone for hours at an end. The best part is that it is affordable. You can enjoy what Apple has to offer without breaking the bank. The second-generation iPhone SE will be available in white, black, and red. It is quite visible that the multinational technology company has made a change in strategy. Apple would like everyone to enjoy the iOS experience, so they are serving a wide iPhone price range. Bigger is not always better, just so you know.
Stop drinking coffee for 1 year
If you really, really like coffee, chances are that you are spending a lot of money on takeaways. The cost of the cup of black magic can add up over time. Take the time to track your spending in terms of the number of espressos you bought in the past couple of weeks and you will have a surprise. It is understandable that you love this beverage, but do not spend all your hard-worked money in the coffee shop. Make your coffee-drinking habits more affordable. For instance, you can go 1 year without store-bought coffee and save enough money to buy an iPhone.
Prepare your coffee machine late at night so that you can enjoy a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. You will not be tempted to go to the deli on the corner. You have the mug that makes you smile and the juice that helps you survive through the day. If you are fed up with your coffee machine, buy a new one. Make an investment and avoid spending money in the long-run. If you would rather put that money aside for the iPhone, take advantage of the free office coffee. It may not be great, but the coffee is good enough to get started for the day giving you a much-needed caffeine boost.
Invest in a refurbished iPhone
It is enough to say the word “refurbished” and everyone starts making funny faces. Even if it is better for the environment and gives you the chance to get something you have been dreaming about for a long time, not many are willing to buy refurbished products thinking that it is not worth it. Refurbished gets bad names, regrettably. If you are ready to buy an iPhone, yet the price is not that compelling, buy refurbished from a reputable retailer. It is a lot cheaper as compared to buying new. What is more, you will be happy with your purchase because Apple sells restored iPhones with the same parts used in new models.
Refurbished smartphones are in such good condition that you cannot even tell they are used. As mentioned earlier, it is recommended to shop at a reputable store. Do not look up refurbished iPhones on Craigslist. Apple should be the first place to start when you feel like going on a shopping spree. The product comes in a new box and, most importantly, it has a refurbished certificate and a 1-year warranty. What more could you ask for?
