    I was thinking about buying my SE from a local LA Apple Store, and using the interest free payment plan, but realized I'll be paying almost 10% in local sales tax to do that.

    Considering the low price of this phone, it may just make sense to buy it outright, even if I upgrade in a year, rather than pay an additional $50 in taxes.

    Anybody know of a good mail-order source for iPhones with free shipping to avoid paying local sales tax?

    eBay/PayPal already protects against fraud. I guess it doesn't matter with Apple Care, but I guess I can only buy that from Apple, so there's some tax to be paid no matter what.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Look at amazon, swappa or other online places.

    Maybe just support your local infrastructure and pay your fair share of taxes?
