Factory Direct Black Friday iPhone X $629

Is this a good deal? I do not want to do one of the suggestions of buy at Costco or someplace then cancel plan, pay off phone to me this is dishonest.

as a former FD employee, their quality isn't the best. I would only buy if it was factory refurbished (by apple) and was sealed by apple as well. I wouldn't buy anything that was refurbished by FD. I would also open up in store and check every little thing before paying

Does FD actually perform the refurbishing though? I would have thought they just send it to some repair shop and then put them up for sale?

Last time I was in Factory Direct looking at a Mac laptop, it looked they had carefully run over each and every one of them.

Phones are also often scratched all to hell or dirty.

Thank you everyone for taking time to caution me. Based on your feedback I decided to proceed with caution and did not go look at them. Maybe Apple will discount them, not in dire straits for new iphone yet.

Apple doesn’t do iPhone discounts. There are a lot of carrier discounts on the iPhone XR though.

I use Zoomer, and do not want to change carrier as plan and cost a month works for me at 36@ month. Downside is they do not offer iPhones I brought my 6s with me and sold the phone they sent me. Other carriers seem to be almost double to get an iPhone XR.
