Get the best price on a cheap iPhone 6

Shop around and save money by finding the cheapest iPhone 6 deals.

The iPhone 6 may not be the latest Apple iPhone on the block, but it's still a great phone. Plus, thanks to the iPhone 6S models, it's also a bit cheaper. Here's how you can get the cheapest iPhone 6 deals in Australia.

1. Buy the iPhone 6 outright and purchase a SIM only plan

If you want the freedom of not being locked in to a 24 month phone contract, then purchasing the iPhone 6 outright is the way to go. Check out our comparison below to see the prices of purchasing the iPhone 6 on a 24 month contract or purchasing it outright and going on a no lock-in SIM only plan.

Note:This table is displaying the outright vs contract prices for the iPhone 6 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. It is also only showing plans with more than 200MB of data allowance per month. If you would like to change these settings, simply click "Modify Results" on top of the table to tailor the results to your needs.

2. Save it as a favourite search on eBay

Saving "iPhone 6" as a favourite search on eBay does two things: Firstly, it will show the latest results for iPhone 6 in your feed each time you log into eBay. Secondly, you will automatically receive search results via email. This way you can be the first to know about the cheapest iPhone 6 deals floating around eBay.

3. eBay coupons and discounts

Many online shoppers purchase items from eBay every day without taking advantage of some of the discounts and coupons on offer. You could potentially save up to 15% on an iPhone 6 with the right discount code (that's a $99 saving for the 16GB model). How do you find the latest eBay discount codes and coupons? Right here on finder, of course.

4. Sign up to the right newsletters

Even if you're not the kind of person who signs up to newsletters, now is the time to do consider it. With the iPhone 7 approaching fast, online tech merchants, like Kogan and DWI are going to be the first off the block with discounts on the earlier iPhone models and what better way to stay in the loop than signing up to their newsletters. You can also sign up to finder's newsletter for the latest shopping and tech news.

5. Sign up on a 24 month plan

This option may seem obvious to some and not even a consideration for those who don't like to commit to anything. There is a common belief among Australian telco customers that, after you consider the inflated price of a phone plan against a SIM plan, that you really don't save anything on the handset – not to mention you're now locked in for 24 months. However, in some cases you can actually get a fantastic price on an iPhone 6s. For example, Virgin's $80 plan comes with 9GB of data, unlimited calls and SMS (the phone plan equivalent to the $60 SIM plan) and a monthly $2 handset repayment. Even when accounting for the $20 difference between the SIM plan and phone plan, that's still only $528 over 24 months – that's a cheap iPhone 6s.

6. Sell or trade in your old iPhone

Apple's rigid pricing system might seem unfair to most, but there is one benefit that comes from it: your old iPhone is still worth a pretty penny. Second-hand iPhones (in reasonable condition) hold their value unlike any other brand. Below are the average second-hand sale prices for iPhones as recorded by Gumtree Australia.

Kogan is one of the largest online retailers of electronic goods. As well as selling through their website, they also sell products through their eBay store. The interesting part is, sometimes the prices differ. At times the store might be cheaper, other times eBay might have a coupon or discount running that will make the eBay version cheaper. Got it?
