Today, pre-orders for the Apple Watch Series 7 began on Apple.com as well as on participating carrier websites. Similar to years past, the launch of a new Apple Watch is seeing a few solid day one discounts from carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile/Sprint.

For all pre-orders, the Apple Watch Series 7 can be ordered today, and it will begin shipping (and be available in stores) on October 15.

AT&T

AT&T's offer for the new Apple Watch requires you to purchase two models, and then you'll get $200 off in bill credits. This offer supports the Series 3 (up to $289.99), Series 4 (up to $699.99), Series 5 (up to $749.99), Series 6 (up to $799.99), SE (up to $359.99), and Series 7 (up to $799.99).

You'll need to buy two Apple Watch models, and place both on a qualifying installment plan with AT&T. The Apple Watch purchases must be two new lines or a new line and an upgraded line. Certified refurbished watches are excluded from this deal.

After purchasing, your $200 credit will begin within three billing cycles, applied in equal amounts over the entire installment plan term.

Verizon/T-Mobile/Sprint

When purchasing the Apple Watch Series 7 directly from Apple.com (or at an Apple Store) and activating it on a new line with Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint, you can get a $100 e-gift card. Full details are available on Apple's site as you go through the model selection and checkout process.

Looks like on Verizon they want you to activate a new line? I wonder if that’s worth the hassle?

Yeah, any carrier is going to require a line of service because that is the product THEY sell. They don't make a dime on Apple's hardware.

I got an Apple Watch Series 6 to hold me over and activated it on Tmo.
Do you know if I would be eligible to get the $100 if I activate the Series 7 or is that for people who never activated a watch at all?

Is there anything in the fine print from stopping someone from starting a new line and taking advantage of the $100 gift card and then once it arrives 6-8 weeks later, cancelling the line from their old watch? Can’t seem to find anything from stopping us from doing this….

I bought it in the store and a) they said it was actually $150 (I guess in-store special?) and b) they verified if I've completed paying the previous device there's no reason I can't just cancel it.

Thanks -- much appreciated!
