Buy one iPhone XR for $15 a month and get a 2nd phone free

For most of July, Sprint has been running a pretty solid deal on the iPhone XR. If you sign up on the Flex Lease program, you can get it for $15 a month for 18 months. That's a huge discount, but now Sprint is sweetening the pot. Sign up for the $15 a month iPhone XR and get $750 in promo credit toward a second iPhone XR. Since that's how much the iPhone XR costs, you're essentially getting it for free.

The XR is normally $31.25 a month, so you're saving $16.25 every month already with the first phone. You can upgrade on the second phone if you want. The $750 promo credit will apply to any other model, even the iPhone XS Max. It just won't be free since that phone costs more to begin with. This deal requires you to sign each phone up on a new line of service or have one phone on a new line and one phone as an upgrade. You'll also need approved credit, and if you cancel early you'll have to pay the remaining balance.

The Flex Lease is an 18-month lease. After that time is up, you can return the phone and upgrade to a new model or buy the rest of the price of the phone. If you choose to buy out the phone instead of upgrading to whatever new iPhone is out at the time, you can either pay off the rest in one lump sum or choose a six-month payment plan. Sprint also has the iPhone Forever plan where you can upgrade to the newest iPhone any time after 12 lease payments.

The iPhone XR is available at this price in several colors including Black, White, Yellow, Coral, Blue, and Apple's (Product)Red. You can even upgrade to one of the higher capacities of 128GB or 512GB and still get the $15 a month price. The color choices are more limited, though, with the 256GB version only available in Red.

Check out our review of the iPhone XR where we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and said "It has almost everything you'd want in a flagship phone for 2018, minus the price tag that's typically coming with them these days." Our reviewer even used the phone for a month and wrote a followup afterward where he said "iPhone XR is legit a great product and it's going to be a great phone choice for a lot of people."

While the iPhone XR does have a great battery, it also supports wireless charging. Check out our roundup of the best accessories, and don't forget to protect your new phone with a great looking case.
