[Best Buy] iPhone 12 Pro 128GB $1107 Unlocked (Geek Squad Open Box YMMV)

Best Buy has a few open box iPhone 12 Pro models on sale. These are sold and shipped by Best Buy. Personally I had great experiences with BB open box phones (looks almost new, all accessories included, and you get the remaining manufacturer's warranty), but it's possible YMMV.

Availability of BB Open Box items tends to come and go, but the price is good until Jun 28, so check back later if they go OOS. (Note that sometimes the link / item code changes).

Could be a response to Apple's $75 gift card deal, or they're just clearing out stock in preparation for September. Still, decent discount if you need to buy an iPhone right now.

iP 12 Pro 128GB Graphite $1106.99: bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/15202531
iP 12 Pro 128GB Blue $1106.99: bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/15202523

They also have regular iPhone 12 on sale. Not as good of a deal though:
iP 12 64GB Black $926.99: bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/15202515
iP 12 64GB Red $926.99: bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/15202517

I went from 8 to 12 Pro Max. Never again will I go for the max. I have permanent carpal tunnel in both hands (heavy user). The 12 was good enough and I hate my (first world) life now.

Seriously.

Why do you not like the pro? I just need a camera upgrade, my iPhone 8 is still fast enough, just wanting a nice camera.

Yeah but at least they're returnable to any Best Buy store.

Gotta pay taxes but that's the trade-off for not playing Russian Roulette with someone on Kijiji.

I almost got hit by a scam seller on craigslist (blacklist phone). So this deal is pretty ok so I bought a space grey and a blue for my teens last night. Will see if they are flawless new then.

If you have Telus EEP then you could probably get it during their flash sale. The plan they are offering is not that bad.

not saying it is bad deal or what not, you are still saving like 300 bucks from new. Just saying it is YMMV, but yes, no hassle return. It will be accepted like it was a new product purchased from bestbuy.

Long time best buy geek squad open box user here.. Every product I've received was mint, from smart watches, phones, laptops, and tablets! Just an n of 1 but thought I'd put it out there. I think the S21 Ultra is around 1200 as well.

lmao that was the last thing I needed to see.

$86/month total for that and the 15 GB Peace of Mind plan. Yeah it's only $8/month less for the 12 Pro Max ($30/month promo vs $38/month regular) but that's $192 over the length of the contract and there's no way of knowing if that $56/month for 15 GB plan will be around come September/October or what the actual price of the 13 lineup is going to be.

Bestbuy open box has been solid for me, some amazing deals. How is battery life on small 12 pro?

A $300 savings for a 1 year old phone when new iPhone 13 Pro coming in October. I guess if you need a phone now get it, but otherwise I’d wait.

iPad got M1 this year so iPhone might get a huge bump in performance as well.

Can you buy applecare for these devices after you purchase them on BestBuy? Not sure if they are still compatible with applecare since they are open box.

It's still a decent price for anybody considering it. Yeah, the 13's will be here in a few months, but this is what the [used] iPhone 12 Pro models of similar color and storage are going for. And you don't get the same refund and return policy like you would from a store.
