Best iPhone SE deals: Save up to $720 at Apple, get $430 off at Verizon

New iPhone 14 may be the latest and greatest phone in Apple’s flagship lineup, but it’s not the only new iPhone on the market today. Earlier this year, Apple released the latest version of its budget iPhone SE. The iPhone SE 2022 is the third generation of this series and is the first upgrade we’ve seen in two years. With a starting price of $429, it’s almost half the price of the iPhone 14 at $829, while still delivering the smooth performance and user-friendly interface that Apple is known for. And with tons of deals, offers, and promotions available from carriers and retailers, you’ll have no trouble finding one of these affordable new iPhones at a great price. Some sellers are even offering a chance to grab a new iPhone SE for free, although you’ll be jumping through a hoop or two to get those deals.

One of the biggest upgrades to the iPhone SE 2022 is that it supports 5G, so you’ll be able to get faster data speeds on the go (if you’re in a 5G-enabled area). Apple has upgraded the processor to its A15 Bionic chip, and it has the same tough glass used on the iPhone 14 series. It retains the same size and design as the previous model, which means there’s a Touch ID sensor on the front. A 12-megapixel camera on the back is even more powerful thanks to the A15 processor.

Best iPhone SE 2022 deals

Although the iPhone SE won’t get quite the same attention as the new iPhone 14, there are still plenty of great deals to take advantage of. Below, you’ll find our round-up of the best deals and offers available to help you get the new iPhone SE for less.

Somewhat surprisingly, Best Buy doesn’t seem to carry any unlocked models of the iPhone SE. But if you’re a T-Mobile customer, there’s an offer you can take advantage of. Customers who use T-Mobile as their carrier can save up to $215 in monthly bill credits on their new iPhone SE. Just note that you will need to add a new service line and choose the 24 month installment plan to get the discount. T-Mobile customers will also get an additional savings of $100, on top of the usual value, when they trade in a used device.

You are receiving price alerts for Apple iPhone SE (64GB, Starlight)

If you prefer to buy your new iPhone directly from the source, you can do so with the iPhone SE. Apple has all carrier models with the one unlocked. And if you’re looking to ditch your old phone and upgrade to the new SE, Apple is offering up to $720 off with a qualifying trade-in. With a base price of $429, that means you could theoretically get the new SE completely free. If your trade-in value exceeds the cost of your new phone, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card for the remainder. If your trade-in doesn’t cover the full cost, you can pay the remaining cost in full or split it into 24 months of interest-free payments when you use an Apple Card at checkout.

While Verizon’s offers on upgrading existing lines are pretty slim right now, there’s a great deal available if you’re looking to add a new line of service. When you buy an iPhone SE on a new line with any unlimited plan, you can save $430, which gets you the 64GB model for free. Just note that the discount will be applied as monthly credits over a period of three months, even if you buy the phone for cash.

Plus, if you’re looking for even more Apple devices, Verizon is offering up to $200 off iPads and $270 off select smartwatches over 36 months when you buy a new iPhone SE. . This offer is valid for new and existing customers, but you must have a data plan for the new device as well as for the phone.

New and existing T-Mobile customers can save up to $400 on the new iPhone SE when trading in an eligible device. If you don’t have a device to trade in, you can still get the new SE for 50% off when adding a new service line, saving you $215. Just note that the discount will be applied in the form of 24 monthly billing credits.

Another carrier offering the 2022 iPhone SE for purchase is Spectrum, although the deals are pretty slim. The only offer available is an additional $100 on top of the estimated value of your device with a qualifying trade-in and new service line.

Metro currently has the best prepaid deal of any retailer or carrier. When you buy an iPhone SE at full retail price and port your existing number over to Metro’s $40 per month unlimited data plan, you get an instant $330 discount. That means you get the iPhone SE for a single $100 purchase, rather than being discounted via monthly credits. Those who don’t have a number to change can still save $100 with the activation of a new line on an eligible Metro plan. If you’re looking to buy your phone direct, this is the best deal you’ll find, although you’ll need to visit the store in person to claim it.

To note: Since Metro is owned by T-Mobile, this offer is not available to those changing numbers from an existing T-Mobile plan.

Buy your new iPhone SE from Visible, port your number, and receive a $150 gift card to spend anywhere Mastercard is accepted. The agreement requires you to transfer your number within 30 days and after completing three full months of service payments, you will receive a code to claim your virtual gift card.
