In USA, as an alternative to buying an iPhone at full price, it is now possible to rent it. This service became possible within the framework of a special program initiated by the re: Store retail chain in partnership with Forward Leasing. In fact, each participant of this program buys a brand new iPhone on lease, and after a certain period of time will be able to exchange it for an even newer model of a mobile gadget.
iPhone for 4000 rubles
You can get iPhone 11 for 4000 rubles a month. For rent, the service provides all three models of the latest line of 2019 - iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. You can also rent last year's XS and XS Max. The rules of the program provide for the possibility, after 12 months from the beginning of participation in it, to take another device for a while or to terminate the lease ahead of schedule and still buy an iPhone. As an additional guarantee, the service offers once a year to replace the display of the rented model, if necessary.
The monthly rental of an iPhone, specifically the iPhone 11 model with 64 GB of internal storage, will be 3,940 rubles (the retail price of this device is about 60,000 rubles .).
Model 11 Pro Max with the same 64 GB (market price - 99,990 rubles .) will cost as early as 5,950 rubles. It's easy to calculate that the annual rental of an iPhone 11 (64 GB) is RUB 47,280 , which is even less than its retail price.
However, after a year of lease, the user will have to pay a portion of its residual price together with an additional service worth 11,000 rubles , which is a prerequisite for the program, to buy the device into ownership.
Adjusters Pro service, which costs 11,000 rubles, is included in the mandatory rental conditions. According to it, the company that provides iPhones on lease undertakes to change the screen of the device free of charge in case of any problems with it. You cannot refuse this condition. At the same time, the cost of Adjusters Pro is initially included in the price of the rented gadget.
The terms of service allow you to cancel the lease early, but such a right appears after at least six months of participation in the leasing program. For early termination of the lease, a special fee is provided within 7,000 rubles. In addition, at any time after you start participating in the program, you can buy an iPhone that was originally rented. There are no fees for this.
Having received an iPhone for rent under the leasing program, a year later the user has the right to return it and take another smartphone model "by subscription". In this case, there is no need to pay any additional residual amounts. However, in order to exchange the previous device for a new one, an important condition must be fulfilled - the previously rented iPhone must be returned almost in its original form. The panels of the device should not have any scratches or other damage, although these requirements do not apply to the display, because the possibility of its replacement was previously provided for by the Adjusters Pro service already included in the rental price.
