Get a New iPhone 8 With Sprint for About $15 a Month

So. You really want the latest and greatest new iPhone, but you really don’t want to pay that crazy price. Here’s a way around that.

Trade in your eligible device with Sprint, and get 50 percent off the lease price of the iPhone 8. For example, to get the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 retail price), your monthly payments would drop from $29 a month (the regular lease price) to $14.45 a month, which is a savings of more than $250. In addition, the $30 activation fee will be waived if you order online or call.

  • Eligible trade-in devices include: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy 8+, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, moto Z2 Force, LG G6, LG V20, Google Pixel/Pixel XL

What you need to know:

  • This deal requires a new line of service activation or eligible upgrade and an 18-month lease to qualify.
  • There are taxes on any device you’re buying, and you’ll have to pay those up front, regardless.
  • If you cancel your service, the remaining device balance will become due.
  • At the end of your 18-month lease, you can:
    • trade in your device and start another lease on a new device; or
    • pay off the remaining balance, which is equivalent to six months of the device’s regular lease price; or
    • keep making monthly payments at the regular lease price and own the device after six payments.
