All of the current iPhone 8 deals require you to trade in an older phone for the biggest savings. In some cases this is an inflated value and a very good deal. In other cases you will make more money selling your iPhone or trading in to a third party for cash up front. Some of the deals spread your credits out over up to two years. This means you will pay less each month, but you will not see a huge up front discount. In most cases you need to sign up for a payment plan.

What’s the Catch with iPhone 8 Deals?

All of the iPhone 8 deals want you to trade in an old phone to save on your purchase. You may get more than you would selling or trading your old iPhone to a person or company, but that is how you are getting the discount.

Read the fine print because in some of the cases you need to be a subscriber to DirecTV or Uverse and in other instances you will need to switch carriers. Double check the details with the salesperson and make sure you see what you are told in the paperwork. Verbal promises don’t mean anything when it comes to an iPhone 8 deal.
