Best Place to Buy New iPhone 6s 64gb

What reputable outlet has the best deals for this model? Anyone shopped in the past year or so for an old stock model?

I know there are new ones on Apple.com but they don't list 64gb - do local stores sell 64gb? Fleabay has new 64gb for $350-400+ (recent sold listings). Wondering also if one can buy AppleCare or whatever they're calling the extended warranty for these eBay phones. Is that a good deal, still, vs. something like SquareTrade? Been a long time since I bought any new Apple gear. This is for my Ma. She has two 5 models, both of which have "issues." Suffice it to say she definitely needs warranty for accidental damage.

Thanks, y'all.

Does she really need 64 GB? Yeah, maybe not enough for you, or others, but guessing her needs are far far less than most? Especially based on the fact shes been using an iPhone 5... so overkill...

Thanks guys, will check out those refurbs. Yeah she pretty much needs the 64; she is terrible at deleting photos, videos, etc. She was using a 5s 64 til recently here when it won't charge or ring anymore...for reasons unrelated to quality.

For $40 more you can get the 128 GB refurb, to future proof it some more.

The refurb store also has the 6s Plus if she's been wanting the bigger screen.

And remember that the refubs have a full one year warranty and you can buy Apple Care Plus for them too.

Hmm, my wife is too, but shes never filled her 32 GB iP 7. Just kept transferring from 4, 5, 6, to 7.

Wonder if you checked the storage it would show how much shes actually using.

Probably also a great candiditate for iCloud, get the photos backed up too. Never have to plug it in.

I'd go the Apple refurb route. AppleCare is easier to deal with, from experience. Wife has a 6s Plus 64GB that needs a new screen because the inside has a discoloration on the screen. Not broken at all just discolored in a small spot like it had pressure on it that damaged the screen but did not break the glass. Anyways it's going to only cost an additional $29.

Thanks for all the comments.

>Wonder if you checked the storage it would show how much shes actually using.

At this point it doesn't matter since I get that 64 refurb for 429 - she needs a phone basically today here and they don't have any 32gb. The price diff on a refurb would be pretty negligible anyway for going the 32 route. And I keep going back to knowing my mom the way I know my mom, a 64 is the way to go for her. If nothing else, gives me insurance not to have her call me every few months (as has been the case) and ask why she's out of space. RollingEyesSmiley5

Grand Daughter bought a 6S Plus, and is selling her 6S with 64gig. Right now its in craigslist, it is still under Apple Care until December. But she wants as much as possible. But it has been new since in a case since leaving the Apple Store. Used on T Mobile, and is unlocked for all.

Are they real Apple refurbs with full Apple warranty, or really just used phones?

I bought one on CL for $225 about six months ago. Yes, it's a 6s 64GB. The guy's wife got it as a replacement, and decided she wanted a 7 instead.

Seems to be mostly sold out except at City of Industry store.
