It’s almost September 2016, which means new iPhones are about to be unleashed on the world. It also means the iPhone 6 Plus is two years old, and probably preparing for retirement. But even so, Verizon thinks now’s the time to buy the first Apple phablet, and it’s throwing massive discounts at shoppers in an effort to clear store shelves.

DON’T MISS: I built a Wi-Fi paradise and all I needed was one device

From Friday through Sunday you can get $200 off the retail price of the 64GB or 128GB iPhone 6 Plus and $150 off the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus when purchased on a device payment plan. Verizon is also waiving activation and upgrade fees.

I know I just hinted that Verizon’s deal is a bad one, but that only applies to early adopters and savvy tech fans who want to purchase Apple’s next-best thing – in this case, the iPhone 7 launching in about a month or so.

But if you don’t mind using a former flagship device and you want to purchase a brand-new phone rather than a used model, then Verizon’s iPhone 6 Plus bargain is certainly one to consider. In Apple stores, the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus is priced at $649, while the 64GB version costs $749. Apple stopped selling a 128GB iPhone 6 Plus last year when it introduced the iPhone 6s Plus.

Verizon’s end-of-summer iPhone 6 Plus deal can also be combined with other promotions, including 16GB of data for $150 per month for four lines, a free Galaxy J3 V smartphone for each line you activate, and up to $650 in cash to pay off your old contract when you switch to Verizon and trade your old device.
