Your amazon link shows $199, there is a $100 credit if you activate a new line of service by 5/31/2019, not a good deal because you can get similar price in Canada if you activate a line.

So Amazon does not sell it for $100 USD. If you need to open a line in the States, why don't you do it locally at Koodo? You could get it for almost $0.00 CAD a week ago.

Well, if that's all you're doing with your phone, even the 6S is an overkill.

Literally my most hated element of rfd’s. I think it’s just based on how many people view/respond. Same reason there are posts from like a year ago in the hot deals, cause 4000 people have discussed some crappy android watch from Verizon
How is there not some mechanism, or even an alert for mods to move deals with less than -25 score to Shopping Discussion or something.

I know right, this is red flag DEALS, and this isn't a deal at all, it's actually robbery. It's the opposite of what we're looking for. And there is other ways to get the 6s, for at least 100 or 200 less than this.

The price of a used iPhone 6S on Kijiji is over $200. If you get it used from a store it’s over $300. Used Galaxy 7’s are over $250, some with screen burn. That S7 is around the same age as the iPhone 6S. It no longer gets OS upgrades. The 6S will be getting upgrades for at least another year or two.

That $400 price is less than twice the typical price of a used iPhone 6S. Not bad at all. It may not be the greatest deal of all times but the only way you are going to get a cheaper one with AppleCare is via some questionable route of signing up for a plan, paying off the phone and then cancelling the plan. You might get away with it a few times but eventually it will catch up with you.

I have both the phones I mentioned. Both bought used. They are both great phones and certainly worth over $200. There are people who will not settle for anything less than a 6” screen, 4000 mAhr battery, fastest Snapdragon, etc... Specs are everything for some. For them any Apple phone will never be enough as they care less about support, ease of use, good resale value, etc... For these folks a $400 iPhone 6S is inconceivable. Nevertheless, a lot of people do not think that way and Apple phones don’t seem to have any problems selling. I guess we will see how long it takes for a Costco to either drop the price or sell out.

32 gigs is fine for most people. The mini iPad deal from Rogers, with more storage, was a similar price and sold out very quickly.

In any case, I’m glad the OP pointed this out. You’d be surprised at the number of people, not wishing to go on tabs, who are interested.

How is this hot? $400 for a 4 year old phone?
Because it’s actually supported, unlike a 2 year old android phone. But ya, you can do better.

Don’t bother, when it comes to phones most folks on this forum don’t know what they are buying. Not only do they not understand specs, they also don’t get the value of software support that android makers just don’t give us. Also the 6s holds up to midrange android phones and flagships that just dropped support, but with support. https://www.macrumors.com/2018/05/17/sa ... hone-6-ad/ See Samsung gets it, they compete with 4 year old iPhones.

For new iphones, it seems like each year they raise the price for latest and greatest. One effect, intentional or not, will be also that the price of a 4 year old phone will increase every year too.

Hopefully the supply outstrips demand and we’ll see prices we more expect on future sales of this phone.

I usually would say used price + battery replacement price is fair deal for brand new of old iphone.
