Best iPhone SE 2022 pre-order deals

Although the iPhone SE doesn’t get quite the same attention as the iPhone 13 did or iPhone 14 will, it does not mean that there will not be offers for you to take advantage of. We’ve rounded up all the best places to pre-order the new iPhone SE, plus all the best deals you won’t want to miss.

Best Buy is one of the best places to buy the all-new iPhone SE, as it’s one of the few places that will carry the carrier versions as well as the unlocked ones. It doesn’t look like there are a ton of deals on the new iPhone SE right now, or any specials from Best Buy. We’ll update if that changes.

If you prefer to buy your new iPhone directly from the source, you can do so for the iPhone SE. Apple has all carrier models with the one unlocked. You can pay the full retail price up front or split it into 24 months of interest-free payments when you use an Apple Card at checkout. Apple also offers a wide range of trade-in options.

It doesn’t look like Verizon has great deals for those looking to buy a new iPhone SE like it has in the past for other devices. You can finance the phone for just over $11 per month for 36 months, or you can buy it outright starting at $429. If you bundle a new iPad Air and iPhone SE on payment plans, Verizon will give you a $150 credit off the price of the new iPhone SE.

AT&T will offer the phone at full retail price or through 36 monthly payments starting at $12 per month for the 64GB model. The carrier will have all three colors, and you can choose between 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

New and existing customers on any Sprint or T-Mobile plan can save $400 on the iPhone SE when trading in an eligible device. This comes in the form of 24 monthly credits, but you’ll only pay $29 (plus tax) for the iPhone SE.

Spectrum is another carrier that has the next-generation iPhone SE available for pre-order, although the deals are pretty slim. The only offer is that you can save $100 on the new SE (or any new Apple device) with a qualifying trade-in.
