Future Shop’s iPhone 6 Pre-Orders Start Sept. 12, Includes Accessories Promo [u]


In line with previous iPhone launches, Future Shop (and Best Buy too—waiting for confirmation) has announced it will be taking pre-orders for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, starting on Friday, September 12.

Pre-orders will be available for customers on Rogers, Telus, Bell, Fido and Virgin Mobile.

But wait—there’s more! The company tells us pre-orders in store will also include a promo for 20% off mobile accessories. So if that interests you, Future Shop might be the place to go.

Based on what we’ve seen last year with the iPhone 5s launch, pre-ordering at Future Shop versus your local carrier has been an easier, faster and more seamless process at times.

Customers will most likely have to pay a $50 deposit again and will be called when their choice of iPhone arrives. While last year resulted in shortages, Best Buy handed out $50 gift cards for the inconvenience–a nice touch.

Let us know if you’re going to reserve your iPhone 6 from Future Shop this year.  Rogers, Fido, Telus and Bell will have their pre-orders start tomorrow as well.

Update: As expected, Best Buy has the same promo too, the company just told us:

    I’ve usually preordered unlocked phones from Apple, but I am going with a contract now. Should I preorder through Telus or FutureShop?

  • David

    Does anyone know if Future Shop/Best Buy are able sell iPhones on government employee plans?

  • Sumit Sekhri

    If you’re looking for the phone as soon as possible then go with whom has more stock. I am going to assume Telus but I don’t know that for a fact.

  • Jamie

    Does anyone know what time Rogers/Telus/etc are starting preorders exactly?

  • Fido said 6am EDT on Twitter. Assuming Rogers will be at the same time.

  • Vincent CAdieux

    Does anyone know if Futureshop is gonna open their stores sooner ? It seems that in Quebec, they all open at 10h00AM but I remember in the past the opened sooner for iPhone launch but I’m not sure if it was for pre-order or for launch date..

  • Nafizur

    i’m assuming you can’t buy the phone out right from futureshop?

  • Bob

    Does anyone know if Costco is going to be carrying the new iPhones?

  • beavisaur

    Ya that’s what they did last year. Had to get it on contract and locked to a provider is what I was told when I was getting my 5S

  • I asked them and am waiting to hear back. Typically they open earlier for pre-orders and launches.

  • You should be able to, but it’ll be locked and you’ll have to pay what the carrier charges for outright pricing.

  • Tins

    No they don’t have access to government plans. I asked for the same thing. 🙁 you have to go through a corporate store.

  • Vincent CAdieux

    I called the Saint-Bruno store and the girl told me that they open at 10:00AM as usual.

  • gtasscarlo

    You might as well buy from Apple.

  • Paul

    I was informed that they will open at 8am since i did my reservation thru them.
