The latest rumour has stated Apple will announce new ‘iPhone 6s’ models at an event on September 9. Every year ahead of this new model launch, existing stock usually goes on sale, which is what appears to be the case right now for the iPhone 6 Plus from Rogers and Bell on contract, along with MTS.
Both companies have the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus on sale starting at $299.99 ($299.95 from Bell) on a 2-year term, which is a $180 discount off the regular price of $480 (38% off).
What’s interesting here is the 64GB iPhone 6 Plus remains at regular price from Rogers, but Bell has it on sale for $419.95 (normally $600; 30% off or $180.05).
As for the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus, Rogers has it slashed to $469.99 (normally $730; 36% off or $260), while Bell has it offered at $549.95 (25% off or $180)
- 16GB iPhone 6 Plus – $299.99 (save $180)
- 64GB iPhone 6 Plus – $598.99 (regular price)
- 128GB iPhone 6 Plus – $469.99 (save $260)
- 16GB iPhone 6 Plus – $299.95 (save $180)
- 64GB iPhone 6 Plus – $419.95 (save $180)
- 128GB iPhone 6 Plus – $549.95 (save $180)
Interestingly enough, sale prices on the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus make it cheaper than the iPhone 6 on contract from both Rogers and Bell when it comes to the 16GB, 64GB (Bell only) and 128GB models.
Also, regional carrier MTS in Manitoba has slashed iPhone 6 Plus pricing as well, with the 16GB configuration now starting at $179 (save $196 or 52%; normally $375) on a 2-year term with a minimum $74/month plan. The 64GB 6 Plus starts at $299 and 128GB model at $429, respectively, depending on plan:
As of writing, TELUS has not discounted their iPhone 6 Plus prices (yet). We’ve also reached out to Rogers to ask if their 128GB iPhone 6 Plus price is real or an error, for the doubters out there.
Again, these discounts are relatively significant, but we’re nearly one year into the iPhone 6 cycle and you will be required to sign a minimum monthly plan ($80 or more) on a 2-year contract for Rogers and Bell customers.
Are you going to be signing a 2-year contract for an iPhone 6 Plus anytime soon (we really should be moving to where Eastlink offers the iPhone, available for $0 on contract)?
