Does anyone in the UK sell iPhones below the RRP?

    It looks like Apple is price-fixing, as I haven't noticed anyone selling them below the RRP - surely this can't be right?

    Normally if you shop around for things like Playstations you can find some good deals - why can't you do the same with iPhones?

    Anti competitive strategies are illegal in the UK: https://www.gov.uk/cartels-price-fixing

    Carphone Warehouse sometimes drops the prices of older iPhones

    If the others don’t get it for cheaper then they can’t sell it for cheaper.  doesn’t sell their devices cheaper even when ordered in bulk. It’s simple.

    Here in India, online retail biggies are already offering around USD 50~70 off on the Max Retail Price( MRP)( which itself is the 2nd highest in all of Apple Markets) . But to sweeten the deals and with the festive season arriving, certain Credit card companies are offering further cashback of USD 130 onwards.
    Just to get a hint, prices on an ecommerce site called PAYTM,
    iPhone 8 64: Selling price is USD 970 less cashback of USD 138. Net cost is USD 832
    iPhone 8 256: Selling price is USD 1169 less cashback of USD 138. Net cost is USD 1031

    Prices are inclusive of 12% GST.

    Argos currently sells the 32Gb iPhone SE for £299 (has been this price for a while), £50 below RRP.

    Be cautious of buying “unlocked” iPhones from Carphone Warehouse. Despite being advertised/sold as sim free, they lock to the first Sim you put in them.
