Save $240 on any size or color of the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus at Verizon

Want a modern iPhone but can't quite jump up to the iPhone X prices? Verizon has a deal knocking $239.99 off the price of the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. All you need to do is sign up for a new line of service and grab a device worth at least $600 (the least expensive iPhone 8). You will earn that $239.99 as a promotional credit spread out over the course of your 24-month commitment. Also, this is an online-only deal that you won't find in a brick-and-mortar store.

The iPhone 8 drops to $15 a month with this deal compared to its normal price of $24 a month. You can also upgrade to the 256GB and still save. The new price for that version is $21.25 a month instead of $31.25. Both versions come in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB drops to $19.17 a month and the 256GB version drops to $25.42. The 64GB version is available in Red, Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. The larger capacity has all those colors, as well, except for Red.

While the iPhone 8 obviously isn't as powerful as the more current phones, it did bring a lot to the table. It was the first Apple iPhone with wireless charging and it introduced the A11 Bionic chip, which made the iPhone as fast as some laptops. Read more about the things the iPhone 8 got right in our review where we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5. Whether you get the iPhone 8 or the iPhone 8 Plus, protect it with a case and screen protectors.
