Dick Smith Electronics is cutting 20% off iPhone 8 pre-orders through eBay
Save heavily on iPhone 8 or iPhone 8+, although you will wait a while to get your new handset.
Dick Smith Electronics is running a limited-time 20% off promotion on iPhone 8, iPhone 8+ and Apple accessories, with a particular focus on Apple's new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+ handsets, which officially go on sale from tomorrow, 22 September 2017.
20% off is a compelling level of savings for a new handset, because it tips the prices of many of Apple's newest handsets under the $1,000 mark. For example, at the listed price of $1,249 for an iPhone 8 256GB, you'd pay just $999.20 for a brand new handset. If you're more keen on the iPhone 8+, it appears that only the 64GB model is available, but you'll still drop the price for that handset down to just $982.40.
There is one notable limitation on the eBay deal that you should be aware of, however. As with all things Dick Smith Electronics (and its parent company, Kogan), mobile handsets purchased this way are sourced through Hong Kong, which means that you'll have to wait on delivery.
That will vary depending on availability, with timing when we checked for an iPhone 8 suggested between 31 October and 21 November. That's markedly slower than Apple's own delivery times for the same handsets, which at the time of writing sat at just 3 business days. Still, if you're happy to wait and save a serious chunk of cash, it could be a worthwhile deal.
The offer runs from today through to 25 September 2017, and applies to all Apple products sold through eBay, so there's also potential to slice some of the cost off an imported MacBook or other Apple device this way, up to a maximum discount of $500.
