Black Friday is right around the corner, and deals news is now starting to flow at a fevered pitch. People wanting to acquire some tech goodness for Christmas giving can start shopping right now in fact. If someone on your Christmas list wants a new iPhone, some deals are going right now at Best Buy and Target that will save you some money ahead of the holiday rush. Best Buy is offering a deal on the iPhone X that will afford people who trade in eligible devices the ability to get in on a $275 gift card for their trouble.
The iPhone X has to be activated on AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint, though T-Mobile is nowhere to be found on this deal, unfortunately. The big caveat of the deal is that to get up to $275 on a gift card at trade, you have to trade in an iPhone 7 or newer device. As with all trade deals, the condition of the device you are trading will significantly impact how much you get on trade; the gift card special is only valid in Best Buy stores.
