The 2020 iPhone SE is a worthy replacement of its predecessor. It’s compact, powerful and cheap, which makes it perfect for almost any user that isn’t phased by multi-camera setups and massive OLED displays. Sure, it’s far from perfect with its small battery and thick bezels, but the combination of Apple’s top-notch build quality and iOS that will keep this phone running smoothly for years to come make it an extremely tempting choice.
Below, we’ve gathered some of the most popular places to buy an unlocked iPhone SE as well as deals with plans from the big three carriers, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T, and a few MVNOs that have some tempting offers to go along with the iPhone SE.

Best unlocked iPhone SE deals
Best iPhone SE deals at Apple
One of the things Apple is known for is that it doesn’t do discounts iPhones on its website (or at its stores) very often and if it does, it’s usually in the form of gift cards that you can only spend on other Apple products. The iPhone SE is no exception, so if you want it straight from the source, you’ll have to pay the standard price.
Best iPhone SE deals at Amazon
It seems that right now, Amazon has stopped selling iPhones with no clear indication of how long that will last. They might be back tomorrow, or in a week or never. We’ll be checking regularly, but you can do that yourself as well from the link below:
Best iPhone SE deals at Best Buy
Over at Best Buy, business is going as usual. The unlocked iPhone SE is going for $399, but if you’re planning to get it with a new one with one of the major carriers then you can save $50 and have it for only $349. Nothing fantastic and if you’re going to sign a contract you can probably find better deals elsewhere.
Best iPhone SE deals at Walmart
Unfortunately, Walmart doesn’t have anything special for deal seekers right now as well. $399 for the iPhone SE 64GB without a contract. And again, you can save $50 if you go for a plan alongside the phone, but those deals are for the next section of this article.
Best iPhone SE deals at Target
Target is selling the iPhone SE and why wouldn’t it? But alas, no savings to be had there either, as the iPhone SE’s price is seemingly too good already to further reduce. But if you somehow ended up with a Target gift card, you can use it on a new iPhone SE.
Best carrier iPhone SE deals
Best Verizon iPhone SE deals
Now we’re getting to the good stuff. What’s the best possible deal you can get on an iPhone SE, or any other phone for that matter? That’s right, $0. And, luckily, Verizon is offering that right now. $0/month for a new iPhone SE. Activate a new line with an Unlimited plan and you get an iPhone SE for free. Can’t beat that!
Best T-Mobile iPhone SE deals
The best T-Mobile can do to reduce the price of your new iPhone SE is to pay you up to $200 for your old iPhone.
Or $100 off if you have:
The savings will be passed to you via bill credits. Not really a great offer considering that you can potentially get more money for your iPhone if you sell it yourself and you won’t have to wait 24 months either.
Best AT&T iPhone SE deals
Meanwhile, AT&T is trying to tempt you into buying an iPhone SE by reducing the monthly payment down to just $5/month. Over the 30-month period of the contract that equals $150, significantly less than the original $400 price. To get that deal, you’ll need to open a new line with the carrier on an existing account and choose one of the unlimited plans AT&T has to offer.
Best iPhone SE deals from MVNO carriers
Smaller carriers, or MVNOs, as they’re commonly known, love the iPhone SE because it fits their budget-friendly philosophy perfectly. So, if you’re looking to have an iPhone SE as a backup phone or one your kid can use without you having to worry about expensive plans, these carriers are your likeliest choice.
Best Xfinity Mobile iPhone SE deals
Xfinity will generously halve the price of the iPhone SE if you’re willing to pay in monthly installments and transfer your number from another carrier. That might ruin your “second phone” plan, but if you’re just looking to ditch another carrier, it’s a great deal.
Best Cricket Wireless iPhone SE deals
Cricket will also give you the iPhone SE for $200 as long as you’re willing to switch your number from another carrier. If you want a new number, you’ll still get a more humble $50 discount, which is still better than nothing.
Best Mint Mobile iPhone SE deals
Mint Mobile doesn’t have the best deal on the iPhone SE itself but combined with its cheapest plans, the overall monthly expense is almost unbeatable. Still, at $15/month for the iPhone, you’re saving $40 from the $400 retail price.
Best Boost Mobile iPhone SE deals
Over at Boost, you can get a decent $100 off when buying an iPhone SE. Not the best deal around but far from the worst either.
Best US Cellular iPhone SE deals
US Cellular has a killer deal on the iPhone SE right now. With it, you’ll only end up paying $1.63/month for your iPhone SE. That’s less than a cup of coffee. The overall reduction is $350. Of course, the savings are coming to you via bill credits, but hey, you’re still paying less.
