Apple positions itself as a premium brand, and that means premium pricing across the board. If you’re already spending big money, it makes sense to get the most out of your dough, which means opting for the 256GB model. Problem is, that particular phone is quite pricey, typically selling for $1,379 outright. Right now, DWI is selling the Gold iPhone 7 256GB for only $1199, leaving you $180 in your pocket to spend on new apps to compliment your shiny new iPhone.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is so close we can practically taste it. Well, not literally, because as yet nobody’s produced an actually consumable smartphone, although that would be a smart sales strategy. You’d have to keep buying new phones, after all. For now, we’re stuck in a solidly inedible smartphone world, but while we dream, you can save on the previous generation of Samsung smartphones. Samsung still officially prices the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge at $1149, but DWI’s current deal offers it for just $699, a serious $450 saving direct to you. That’s enough for more than enough actually edible cakes and sweet treats to keep us happy for a good long time.

Google’s Pixel sells itself on both quality and simplicity, with a particular focus on folks who want the latest versions of Android as soon as they’re available. While many of its key features have been overtaken by later phone such as the HTC U Ultra, LG G6 and even the Galaxy S8, the Pixel is still a great handset if you’re heavily into Google’s services. DWI’s weekly deal on the silver bodied 32GB Google Pixel puts it in your pocket for $889, a $190 saving off its usual price.
