Apple is one of the love brands that are widely preferred around the world. The brand announced new products recently, among which iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X have already took their place among the most popular smart phones despite their really high prices. On the other hand, the fact that the prices and discounts are similar in every country. So, which countries are more advantageous in terms of prices of Apple?
The cheapest iPhone X on Apple stores costs 999 USD in USA while the cheapest iPhone 8 is 699 and iPhone 8 Plus 799 USD. In Europe, the price of iPhone X goes higher up to 1149 Euros in Germany while it is 1579 USD in Australia. When we check the price list in England, iPhone X comes up as 999 Pound, iPhone 8 649 Pound and iPhone 8 Plus 799 Pound.
Heading to USA for a cheaper Apple
The prices quoted for US customers are exclusive of sales taxes, which vary state-by-state, while the UK prices include VAT. So it is a worldwide trend to buy Apple products during a travel to USA (even traveling to USA just to purchase an Apple); however, this gets less appealing as you have to pay VAT when you turn back to your own country. Especially in Europe, products such as iPhone X are so expensive that it’s led thousands to eye-up transatlantic flights to see if it’s cheaper to fly across the pond to buy it. And it is, even with the cost of the flight, but there’s a catch: you would become an international electronics smuggler in doing so.
On the other hand, a flight ticket, the price for an iPhone and VAT in your country and accommodation costs may be very same with the price of an iPhone in your own country. The same amount of money may cover the expenses of a travel in a far country, which is not totally a bad idea. So just choose your own way!
