Plus there’s even the chance to score some great deals on a couple of your favorite gadgets…
The iPhone X is already available for pre-order from the biggest names in the world, but, when Apple announced that they intended to make it available immediately earlier than they expected, a large supply of the upcoming iPhone ended up being made by companies like eBay, which is currently offering their pre-ordered iPhone X for as low as $250.99 . As it turns out, eBay is pretty great. While they may not have the best Apple reputation, their pre-order for the iPhone X is a one-stop shop for everything iOS, and it’s pretty darn close to any other website you’ll find, including Amazon and Best Buy. If you’re looking to pick some up early, it’s a good idea to do a little Google research first. After all, eBay has more than 4,000 deals listed right now , and you might just get lucky and score a deal when you can’t find anything that you want.
What makes eBay so great? The biggest factor, is that they aren’t the busiest sites on the web. They have the best selection of new releases for iPhone users looking to strike it rich, and every single product that is made available during the day for sale is on sale for pretty much the same price as it was on Saturday morning. They offer deals on anything else you’d care to spend an extra $60-$100 dollars for, and with millions of active users in their store, it’s unlikely that the product you’re looking for will be sold out until the morning.
I personally use eBay a lot, and you can shop just as easily there and back, even if they do have a sales page. The other thing I’ve found about the site is that it makes it a lot easier to find deals when you’re already in your holiday budget, using the eBay “My Wishlist” feature. There are a few features on the site that allow you to view what others have bought and sold, the most well-known which is the “See what others have got” feature. When you have a wishlist, you can click on each item you’d like to purchase, and it will show you the prices for that item when it is available. What if you didn’t have an active wishlist? The idea is that this would be possible after purchasing and you’d be able to access that list whenever you wanted. It was definitely something I tried, so maybe it’s a feature you’ll want to do some more research on. One thing I haven’t done is research any other resellers of used smartphones when buying. As it turns out, if you purchase a used phone at any other reseller, you’ll want to be sure of obtaining the best manufacturer warranty you can, and that’s usually the main reason your phone is in poor condition. If these conditions are violated, you’ll want to avoid buying any other phones.
Now I’d love to hear your feedback as I build up our list over the days ahead, but even if you are the type of person who can’t wait until Christmas / New Years Eve to get this year’s iPhone X, there may still be time to get them as cheap as you can on eBay, although it’s possible they could end up being sold on eBay on the 24th. We’ll keep you posted!
