Will college students spring for the iPhone X on Cyber Monday? Seize the day and win $700.*


According to Techradar.com: “We can expect Cyber Monday 2017 to do for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X what Cyber Monday 2016 did for the iPhone 7. From mobile carriers offering BOGO deals or credits for installment plans to retailers chopping the price and tossing in freebies, there may not be a better time to buy the iPhone 8 or iPhone X. If you do see a sale, don’t expect it to last long.”
