iPhone XR: Our favorite iPhone Black Friday deal

Unlocked iPhone XR Black Friday
Are these deals for real?

If you found the iPhone XR on Back Market, you might be asking yourself this question. In fact, at the time of writing this (Nov 2022), prices for the iPhone XR start at just $189. Other retailers list it for over $250 on average these days, so our deals are up to 25%+ off compared to other sites. Even though the iPhone XR was released in 2018, it still stands as one of the best iPhone models even compared to iPhone 13 or 14. So if you're not in a rush to get the latest and "greatest" Apple iPhone, then do yourself and your wallet a favor by shopping for refurbished options on Back Market.

How can we offer such a big discount on iPhone?

To begin with, we only include high-quality, refurbished smartphones and electronics in our market.  Here's how it works. We take used iPhones and give them to professionals to inspect, repair and fully replace any parts that are too old or do not function properly (kinda how your mechanic checks your car). After conducting several performance tests to ensure quality, the iPhone returns to the market like new. 

Many people complain that their old phones don't work as well as they once did. The battery is the culprit in most of these cases. If your old device is starting to give you issues with speed, check the battery first. The truth is, an iPhone battery lasts for about 4 years. And, it works like new for just 2! We love Apple products, but the battery life isn't great. That's why we're passionate about refurbishing these phones so you can get even more use out of them. It's also much more environmentally friendly than buying a brand new device.

The iPhone XR is no exception. The model is about 4 years old, so while some parts on used phones might not perform as well, we're able to refurbish them to a like new standard that you can trust. You can shop confidently this Black Friday knowing that our iPhone XR's also come with free standard shipping, a 1-year warranty and 30 days to change your mind.

What makes the XR so special?

If you're looking for an iPhone that has all of the features you're after at a super low price tag, the XR is your best bet! It has excellent battery life (especially after the battery has been replaced by our experts) and the latest software. Plus, with newer iPhone releases like the iPhone 14, iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, the XR continues to get progressively cheaper even though it still holds up well compared to the newer models.

The XR comes in an array of colors, a throwback to the Apple devices of yesteryear. Do you remember all of the different colors of the 5C? The XR is one of Apple's best-selling products thanks to its affordability and full-screen design. The SE was one of Apple's most affordable options, but it does lack certain features. Get those features back with the XR. 

You can usually find an XR on our site for under $200, which means you don't have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to get it. 

What makes the XR such an awesome deal?

Since the XR comes with the A12 Bionic chip from 2018, it's still a great performer. And even though you can also get a great deal on a used model, remember that Apple batteries typically last about 2 years before considerably losing longevity. If you buy a used XR that isn’t refurbished it may still come with an old battery, and that renders it useless. 😔

Four years later, the XR is still one of the best Apple deals on the market. While the iPhone 14 series offers a few newer features and more model options, it's quite an investment. You CAN already find the iPhone 14 on our site for a great price ($706 or  $293 off compared to the new price on Apple of $999), but we know that not everyone can afford to put that much money towards a phone. 

A refurbished phone lands in the sweet spot for buying an XR this Black Friday. “New” is overpriced. “Used” isn’t trustworthy enough. But “refurbished” is just the right middle ground, giving you a deal that doesn’t sacrifice quality or affordability.

More Black Friday Apple deals to consider

The XR is our favorite Apple phone deal, but what about all of the other Apple devices out there? Maybe you're more interested in an Apple Watch, MacBook Pro,  Apple pencil, or AirPods. No worries, we've gotchu. You'll find amazing deals on all of these products and more on our website. The best part? We have these prices and discounts on iPhones and other Apple products EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR - no more waiting until November Black Friday 'doorbuster' deals.

You don't need to shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday

Since we're trying to do our part in protecting the planet, we're not going to encourage you to shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. These two shopping holidays are the culprit behind many unnecessary purchases and overconsumption. Although we understand it can be tempting to buy into early sales on new releases for AirPods, Apple Watches, MacBooks or iMacs, you can instead find all of these products at insanely low prices on our website no matter what day it is. Our planet deserves a break, so you can save a little money while fighting the good fight against e-waste when you shop refurbished.

But if you do choose to shop on either of these days, please don't hesitate to check out our listings for Black Friday electronics and Cyber Monday tech. But just keep in mind: Our sellers are doing their best to give you great deals every day of the year, so there really is no rush 🙂
