    Just got my fiance a new iPhone 5S 32gb!!! It was pay $269 for out of warranty replacement or $299 after the 5s $200 store credit trade in we got used that was having issues.

    Wasn't really a tough call, paid a little extra and went new so I can get my charge purchase protection in case they drop the price within 90 days, extend the warranty a year and also got the squaretrade family plan warranty since hers is new, which let me get mine covered as well with ST.

    All in all not too shabby I think considering refurb/swappa are going for $250 still. Had bad luck w used phones so kinda exciting lol

    That's awesome. Looks like you're really enjoying the fact it is new. I have always bought new for myself. I also enjoy that shiny new toy feeling. I'm waiting for the new 5se to be introduced in several days, as well the 7 Plus in September. Well tell her to enjoy it!

    Thank you! Year we had a used 5s die on us I bought on CL and traded in one we received from family that started acting up. Feels good to be able to have piece of mind and the squaretrade warranty since it let me add both our phones. iPhones seem sensitive lol, Apple was fast in both this experience and my beats headphone experience so major plus.

    Nice deal, especially since a new one is like $450 from Apple for just the 16gb!

    I would love a 5se. Still have my 5s though. When I first played with it, was amazed at how well the finger print sensor was compared to my note 4 then.

    Congrats. I remember the day that I received my iPhone 5s (it was actually my first phone). Even now, it is still a solid phone.

    Congrats!

    I picked up a 64 gig 5s a few weeks ago as my first foray into iPhone land. I have always loved the design of this phone so even though it is older I had to get one.

    It is a snappy little phone and I am really enjoying it. Hopefully you will too. 😊
