Apple is finally letting you buy a factory unlocked iPhone 4S directly from their website. I believe this is a much better deal if you are not eligible for an upgrade and are looking for a good resale value when you are ready for the next best iPhone! I would buy it online for some cashback and the convenience of the iPhone being shipped to our doorstep.
There is a catch though – it is a world phone but limited to GSM worldwide.
How about some cashback?
When it comes to iPhone purchases, not many vendors offer cashback.
You may try the following :
- Discover Card – ShopDiscover (5% cashback @ Apple.com)
- Bank of America – Add It Up (2% cashback @ Apple.com)
- BigCrumbs (1.6% cashback @ Apple.com – good if you don’t have Discover card or BoA account) (Use any credit card and get credit card points/cashback in addition to BigCrumbs cashback)
While the cashback percentages are measly, they can give good returns if you buy an iPhone 4S at no-commitment prices. The best part being buying from the comfort of your home, saving a trip to the store, saving time and some cashback in return!
