The iPhone gained instant popularity from the day it was released. Its sleek design and uncomplicated structure has definitely added to its fame. Naturally, due to its high demand, its price is slightly steep. However, the good news is that if you know exactly what you want and are aware of your budget, it is not difficult to find a cheap iPhone.
Apple simultaneously released two models of the iPhone- 8GB and 16GB. Therefore, the first consideration to keep in mind is the model. Next you should ask yourself whether you are going to use the device for personal or business purposes and if you will need additional accessories such as speakers, car accessories or headphones.
Once you have reached a conclusion, make a cost sheet for each of these items on an individual basis. Do this as though you are buying each item as a different commodity. This will make it easier for you look for discounts which are again, similar to bulk discount in case of common tangible commodities.
Due to their high demand, most stores that stock up on iPhones are facing a shortage. This makes it a little tricky to find cheap iPhones. Therefore, keeping the following tips in mind is recommended:
1-Keep an eye out for cheap deals in local adverts and retail shops:
If visit your local retailer during a specific month during the year, you will definitely find a good stock of Apple iPhones. Apart from that, local retailers usually put up advertisements that offer good deals as these are sure to get the customer’s attention. In addition to that, always check the classified advertisements in the newspapers.
The easiest way to find a cheap iPhone is to carry out a quick search on Craigslist- a popular classified website on the internet. The website will allow you to search for a device based on the model number you want and the city you are residing in. Once you are sure you want to make the purchase, contact the seller and begin the transaction.
However, with online websites, it becomes necessary to keep a few risks in mind. Make sure that you do not get tempted by scams that offer free iPhones.
3- eBay and other auction websites
After you have carried out the above mentioned procedure, you are sure to know precisely what you want and how much it should cost. This is when you visit auction websites like eBay and carry out a search. In case of such websites, it is always recommended to look around for a while before you reach a conclusion. Be sure to compare prices and make sure you get exactly what you want in terms of features as well as cost.
Second-hand iPhones are very popular today as well. This is because not only is the price low, but the device is in great condition and looks brand new. So if you are unable to get a good price at a retail shop or on an online website, make sure to consider this option as well.
