For a long time Apple wasn't selling any products at Costco because of some falling out between them and Costco. However I recently noticed there's now a new Apple products table with iPads and ipods. I thought it was a step in the right direction. Then yesterday I noticed that they are now selling the iPhone 5s for AT&T! Would be great to see them get the iPhone 6 for Verizon & AT&T!

My Costco sells Verizon iPhones also and currently has a $100 rebate for buying on Edge. No word yet when they will stock iPhone 6.

I am a confused about ordering from Costco.

I currently have AT&T Mobile Share 2GB with 2 lines (phones paid off) for $90 (40+25+25).

Through an AT&T 2 year contract, 2 new 6's would make my monthly bill $120 (40+40+40).

Costco makes me add 3GB per line for $30. I don't see a way to keep my current plan and they don't tell me what my monthly bill would end up being.
$140? (30+30+40+40)

Does Costco allow iPhones to be purchased with ATT Next in store? Online it looks like 2-year contracts only...

I work there, you have to go pre-order tomorrow morning when the store opens at 10am if you want a phone. You can use NEXT to upgrade in-store as well as 2 year.

Thanks for the tip! At Costco can you ADD a line to an existing account (as opposed to upgrade) via Next as well?

You can buy from Costco directly from their website costco.com - search for Apple. It links to a trusted Costco supplier which has iPhone 6 and other models for all carriers in stock.

When I called my local Costco about the 6 availability and pre orders they said they were only getting the 16GB ones in the store and could only take pre orders for those.

The guys at my local Costco said they're expecting to have a "launch day event" but their expressions said something else. Then they tried to get me interested in an Android phone.

Expected date?
the website says 9-23 but the people at the store were confused by that date so they said 10-28 but they said it could possibly ship on the 9-23 but they are not sure as they brand new to selling the iPhone. They Also gave me their store number so I am going to call them on wednesday to find out what inventory they will get for the 19th and if the have the phone I want I will camp on the 19th early in the morning like at 6 as they told me they don't expect much of a rush as only costco members could buy from them.

So, I had to bop down to our Costco to see if anything was up (It's only 5 minutes away—dangerous to the pocketbook!).

First, the guy seemed to know what he was talking about, unlike the two guys I talked to earlier in the week.

They're only accepting preorders for Verizon. Expected delivery date is Oct. 7.

They will have 6's, including the Plus, on the 19th, though he added he suspected they'd only have the 16GB plus models. He couldn't say for positive.

really when I pre-oreded there today they said my 6+ won't come till october 28th but if I can get by oct 7th thats great. they also told me they could get more then just the 16gb 6+ for the 19th so they gave me their card and said to call on wednesday to find out what they are getting.

That's exactly what my local Costco guy told me, except he didn't mention a delivery date.

Is says the 6 plus will process on or before the 20th. Does it mean we can get it on the 19th or 20th or they won't ship it out till then?

My local Costco said they'll be getting them on release day.
This is what I expect, except, supplies will be limited until apple's suppliers catch up with demand (as usual).

You should be able to get Iphone with any major carrier if you go to your local costco and go to the mobile kiosk. (Only way to go with tmobile...not available online).

FYI: if you don't want iPhone 6, costco is currently offering iPhone 5s starting at $78 on contract (according to my email from a couple days ago).
