Black Friday iPhone 13 deals

You've come for a Black Friday deal on an iPhone 13, and you're in the right place. Maybe you thought the best you could do for a price cut on last year's model was the $50 Apple Gift Card from Apple, a deal that started today. We have some more creative options as well, especially if you're looking to sign up with a new mobile network.

Mint Mobile, for instance, has a very unique deal on an iPhone 13. You pay full price for the phone, then you get mobile service free for six months. Normally carriers do this deal the other way - they give you a free phone if you agree to pay for service. That leaves you with a monthly bill, and a two- or three-year agreement. We like that Mint's option leaves you with no monthly bill, and the chance to walk away in half a year. 

We never see huge Black Friday Apple deals, so signing up with a carrier is your best bet for a deal on an iPhone 13 or an iPhone 13 mini, the last mini iPhone that Apple sells. You can get the iPhone mini for free from Verizon if you sign up for a new unlimited plan, and you don't need to trade anything to get that deal. We love that offer for folks who don't have a phone they can give back. 

Below you can find all the early iPhone 13 Black Friday deals available right now and some more advice on how to make the most of the end-of-year sales.

Apple iPhone 13 & 13 mini: 6-month plan free /w device at Mint Mobile
Mint Mobile is one of the most popular prepaid carriers right now thanks to their incredibly competitively priced plans. While this particular iPhone deal will see you paying for an iPhone 13 upfront - which is admittedly pricey - you'll be getting a nice 6-month plan free as a welcome bonus. With plans for as little as $20 per month, Mint is a great choice if you're looking to cut out those pricey unlimited plans at the major carriers. See this same deal on the iPhone 13 mini here

Apple iPhone 13 mini: free with a new unlimited data plan at Verizon

Apple iPhone 13 mini: free with a new unlimited data plan at Verizon
No trade needed:
This free iPhone 13 mini deal is one of the best iPhone offers available right now at Verizon. The iPhone 13 mini packs Apple's latest tech in a smaller form factor than its larger flagship counterparts. In the past, we've seen this device go for as little as $5 per month without the need for a trade so this week's promotion really takes it up a notch. We would say, however, that the iPhone 13 Pro (below) is better value right now since it's available for free under the same terms.

Apple iPhone 13: $5 with a new unlimited line at Verizon
Verizon's current deal on the iPhone 13 is amazing when you consider you don't need a trade-in to get this fantastic device for just $5 - just a new line on an unlimited data plan. What slightly ruins this deal's party is the fact that both the iPhone 13 mini (see below) and the iPhone 13 Pro are both available for free right now under the same terms, so we'd probably recommend those instead.
Total cost: $180 (plan req)  | Monthly cost: $5 (36 mo)

Apple iPhone 13: $50 Apple Gift Card with purchase at Apple

Apple iPhone 13: $50 Apple Gift Card with purchase at Apple
Apple isn't dropping the price on the iPhone 13 any further than it's already gone. Instead, just as we predicted, Apple will offer a $50 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of select devices. Those include both the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 mini. If you want to avoid signing up with a carrier, this may be the best Black Friday iPhone 13 deal you'll find.

Apple isn't dropping the price on the iPhone 13 mini any further than it's already gone. Instead, just as we predicted, Apple will offer a $50 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of select devices. Those include both the iPhone 13 mini and the larger iPhone 13. This is the last iPhone mini that you can buy directly from Apple, so this Black Friday iPhone deal could be the best pricing you'll find. 

Apple iPhone 13: $20 $10 with unlimited plan at AT&TTotal cost: $360  | Monthly cost: $10 (36 mo)

Apple iPhone 13: $20 $10 with unlimited plan at AT&T
AT&T's iPhone deals on the standard iPhone 13 have been switched up to offer a nice $10 monthly device discount that you don't even need a trade to get. This one isn't quite as good as this week's deals on the latest iPhone 14 in our opinion but it's a good option if you don't happen to have a highly valued device sitting around ready to trade.
Total cost: $360  | Monthly cost: $10 (36 mo)

Apple iPhone 13: $150 gift card with switch at Visibile Wireless
Here's one of our favorite alternative picks to the 'big carriers' - Visible Wireless. This prepaid network offers completely unlimited 5G data plans for as little as $30 per month and even better still, it's got its down iPhone deals for new customers. Port your number over and pick up an iPhone 13 from Visible and you'll get a $150 online gift card. It's not a huge bonus, but it's worth considering if you're looking to save cash in the long run.
