    Just curious did you get it at a discount price or full price??? I paid retail price this is the first phone I buy at full retail price since I don't want to lose my unlimited data.

    Full retail at the time of purchase for my iPhone 6 plus and my husband's iPhone 6.

    My son did his on a 2-year contract for the 6 plus.

    The most recent iP6 Plus I purchased was sold to me at full price, then AT&T issued a substantial credit reducing my upcoming bill for service. They've been a good company to do business with.

    It's really not a discount, it's financed? Anyway, I paid outright.

    Bought my 6 64gb on ATT NEXT 12 (no tax in OR) so no money down. Turned in a 4S for $200, so I figure that is $200 off the full retail. Plus, the line I used was under contract for another year, so by using NEXT, it took it off contract. Can pay it off when ever I want.

    I pay the contract price every year, made possible by keeping a dummy line for $10/month which I device swap to my line every other year. This can be done on the old family plan though.

    Full retail unlocked 16GB 6. Went through ShopDiscover 5% cashback with online purchases, and an additional 5% back through Apple Store ShopDiscover link. This net me $71 cashback.

    Also, submitted $100 price adjustment to Discover (price protection policy) due to the Sam's Club Black Friday sale where my model is $100 off.

    Also sold 5S for $350. If Discover accepts my price protection claim, I'll be out of pocket $196.

    Purchased a 6+ for the wife full retail through ATT NEXT. Made me feelings hurt.

    Report back if you actually get this. iPhone 6 is still excluded from ShopDiscover (now rebranded "Discover Deals") and even if it weren't ShopDiscover discounts don't stack with other deals (the 5% cashback bonus). I settled for just the 5% cashback. It also happened last year when I bought a 5s for my wife -- ShopDiscover excluded the 5s. No mail-order discount for Discover last Fall, but got 5% on my Chase Visa.

    Talmy,

    I actually already received the CashBack Bonus and did get 10% on the phone, so I can confirm it does stack. I credit a Slickdeals post for bringing it to my attention. Looking at the terms prior to the purchase, the 6 Plus & Air 2 was not included, but the regular 6 was included. Maybe it has changed since then (purchased the phone on November 5).

    As a matter of fact, $6.14 was just flat out removed from my cashback balance for the billing period because I guess I actually hit the max cashback for the Quarter ($75). Looks like I'm done using this card for the year.

    I got it on contract and realized I made the wrong choice after researching the 2 year savings so I called ATT to switch to Next but they said it was too late. So I paid $325 contract cancellation.

    Retail for IPhone 6plus 64 850
    I paid 400 on contract and 325 to cancel contract.

    Saved 125.00
