[Best Buy] iPhone XS Open Box $1179

For those who may not already know (I just discovered) you can buy new open box iPhones direct from a Best Buy for a cool $200 discount. Unlocked from Apple is $1379.

Not a great deal but if someone needs an X or XS this is the cheapest I’ve found at the moment. Might be more fit for “ongoing deals”

Just a word of warning to my fellow dealers of the red,

Open box deals are not always a good idea. I proposed to my girlfriend with an open box ring and she immediately dumped me. I now spend most of my time surfing through profiles on plenty of whales in the sea. The guy at walmart said it was a nice ring and he assured me that it would be a great success, but if not, I had 30 days to return it.

Another thing to keep in mind, you never really know how many times the box has been opened when you buy open box items. You should always ask the salesperson if it has been unboxed more than once. How do we know Best Buy isn't selling an open box item 4-5 times until it finally becomes a storage closet box item?

I hired a private statistical investigator aka mall security guard and after a bit of investigation I was informed that the ring had been open boxed 7 times and all 7 resulted in failed proposals.

Bro, judging by your profile picture I would say that the ring wasn't the deal breaker

Been a while since I've looked at iphone prices but holy crap $1,300 for a cellphone? I mean I've heard of Apple testing the waters to see how much they can push the price on thier iphones at $1000/iphone but $1,300 is crazy IMHO.

Not sure why you say unlocked. All phones in Canada are unlocked.

You think $1300 is nuts? The iPhone XS Max 512 gig is 2k plus tax, so ridiculous!!!!
