Ready to get a brand new iPhone 11 64GB for free? All you have to do is let go of that older smartphone and give it to Sprint. As long as the phone is on Sprint's list it can be in any condition, too. The trade-in is good for $29.17 off your monthly bill for the duration of your lease.

The trade-in can be both Android and Apple phones. Requires a new line signed up on Sprint's 18-month Flex Lease. You'll pay $0 a month for the phone though. If your phone is older than the iPhone 7 or Galaxy S9, you can still get a discount, too.

This deal requires approved credit, and you will need to sign up on a new line of service with Sprint's Flex Lease. The Flex Lease is an 18-month commitment. 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 phone is out at the time, you can either pay off the rest in one lump sum or choose a six-month payment plan.

The trade-in program includes phones from both Android and Apple. Trade in the iPhone 7 or newer, the Samsung Galaxy S9 or newer, the Note 9 or newer, the Pixel 3 or newer, the LG G8, the LG V40, or the LG V50 to maximize the deal. Older phones can still be traded in, but you will only get a maximum of $14.59 off.

While the $29.17 monthly credit means you can get the iPhone 11 for free, you don't have to stick with just the iPhone 11 if you don't want to. You can upgrade to the iPhone 11 Pro or the iPhone 11 Pro Max if you want. You'll still only get $29.17 off your bill, but that lowers the cost of each phone to $12.50 and $16.67 a month respectively. That's a bargain for Apple's latest and greatest.

That's a lot of info to digest, but the key takeaway is that this is another great phone generation from Apple. We gave the iPhone 11 4.5 stars and a The Best badge. Rene Ritchie said "...with the added ultra wide camera and Night Mode, improved selfies, industry-leading A13 Bionic chipset, Gigabit LTE and Wi-Fi 6, and iOS 13 operating system... iPhone 11 is the most compelling iPhone Apple has ever made." Here's everything you need to know about Apple's new smartphones.

He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
