If you are thinking about buying a new iPhone in the next few months, you will probably do so through the traditional methods.

You’ll either buy one outright from your local Apple shop or get one on a two-year contract through your phone provider. But both these methods tend to mean one thing – you will be paying a lot for it.

So, if you want to save a little money on your next iPhone, take a look at the following tips. Why pay more when you don’t have to? Let’s see how you can cut those costs.

Take up gift card options

Some shops will offer you gift cards when you buy a new iPhone, so have a look around online or in your hometown for any deals. While you won’t save money on the phone itself, it will give you anything from £25-50 to spend on something else. Don’t forget that you are likely to need plenty of accessories with your new mobile. So, you could, in essence, get these for nothing if you use the gift cards.

Look into cashback sites

There are a lot of cashback sites out there, such as Quidco. They often run deals that mean when you buy something from them; they pay you cash. The amount varies from deal to deal, and you will need to keep an eye out for when an iPhone crops up. However, if you can wait until the perfect time, you can get a nice bonus for buying your new mobile.

Buy second hand

Buy second hand

Check eBay and your local second-hand markets for your next iPhone, and you will save a decent amount. Apple products tend to have a high resale value, even when they have been used, but there are savings to be made. Also, think about getting an older iteration of the device. As each new iPhone comes to the market, the older ones come down in price by a significant amount.

Go refurbished

Another way to spend less on your next mobile purchase is to buy a refurbished iPhone. When a product is refurbished, it has been sold to someone but it is sent back – either because it doesn’t work or it is unwanted. The refurbisher fixes any problems and then sells them on at a reduced price, usually under a grading system. The more expensive phones will look good as new while you will pay less for phones with superficial damage.

Get a store card

You don’t get discounts on new iPhones, but you can if you make use of the store card system. Lots of retailers will offer 10 or 20{71b550cbed0aca3fea2335d26076176dc834a5ad6e765af844b2cea64fe7483b} discounts on your first purchase with your store card, so sign up and use one to save on an iPhone. You don’t have to use it again, and all you need to do is pay the money back from your usual account and cut up the store card.
