Recently, I bought a lovely 64 GB iPhone 6 for T-Mobile at the Apple Store, because I had heard that they had the best availability of the new iPhones and because I had heard that the price for the new iPhones, being Apple products, was basically the same everywhere. However, my smug confidence was shattered when my husband informed me that one of his friends had gotten his T-Mobile iPhone 6 at Costco, and had gotten a significant discount. Horrified at being outdone at the discount game, I hurried to the mobile phone kiosk at the South Austin Costco and demanded to know if this was indeed true. To my astonishment, I found that you can save $78.54 on the purchase of an iPhone 6 at Costco, as well as getting a free lightning car charger and dash mount for your new iPhone. The way it works is that Costco is essentially footing the bill for the sales tax that you would pay on the purchase of a $649 iPhone 6 (the price of the 16 GB version). In Austin, that is $53.54. Plus, they give you a mail-in rebate for a $25 cash card, and the aforementioned accessory package. If you choose to get a larger capacity iPhone 6, as I did, you pay the extra $100 or $200, and are charged tax on that amount, but not on the initial $649 base amount. It is a sweet deal…so sweet, in fact, that I returned the iPhone I had purchased a week before to the Apple Store and bought one from Costco. $78.54 plus a car charger and dash mount is nothing to sneeze at!
