If you typically buy your smartphones from the local carrier, it might be in your best interest to stick to it this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Right now, carriers like AT&T are running promotions that will get you the latest iPhone 14 for free. There are some loopholes, of course, but they are less tricky than you think.
To get a fully discounted iPhone 14, you need to trade in a device worth $130 or more. That includes phone models as old as the iPhone 11. You must also have a qualifying Unlimited plan, which includes Premium, Extra, and Starter, and commit to using the phone under AT&T for 36 months. Unless you’re planning to switch carriers soon, a free iPhone is never a bad idea.
