Hey guys,

What is the limit for the number of phones you can order using one credit card? In the past years, I have seen some people say 2 phones per credit card.

Was that the case last year?

I don't want them to cancel my order if I try to order 3 phones on 1 card.

I believe it was two phones per order (per credit card). Mostly to limit gray-market transactions and to maintain availability for all who want one.

Oh okay. That makes sense. I'm guessing that ordering 2 phones and checking out and then starting a new separate order for the 3rd phone and checking out would also probably also avoid this problem

Most likely, but using a separate credit card would be the safest option.

There's also carrier websites and retailers to purchase from as well. That is what I did last year to place a backup. I ordered one at midnight from Apple, and then a few minutes later, Best Buy went live and I ordered from there as well.

Thanks! Yes, that is also a good option for me to consider
