1. Get a free 64GB iPhoneXR when you buy any of the new iPhone models and one new line of service through Verizon, saving you $749. Unlike the Sprint deal we previously wrote about, you don't need to trade in your phone to get a free iPhone XR. However, just like the Sprint deal, readers will have to pay the full price of both phones before being reimbursed monthly in $31.25 bill credit over the span of two years. If you want an iPhoneXR with more GB, Verizon also offers $750 in credit you can apply toward the more expensive XR models.

  • Product: Free iPhone XR (64GB)

5. Amazon Prime members can get three months of Audible for free if they're new subscribers. Audible usually offers one-month free trials, so this is an unusual deal that will save readers $45 as membership usually costs $15/month. With the subscription, you'll be able to enjoy one new book per month, as well two free Audible originals of your choice. After the trial ends, you are allowed to keep all the books you chose, even if you cancel your membership. This offer will only be available for a limited time, however.

The brand doesn't just sell festive outdoor lights for Christmas, but Halloween and other occasions as well. The Wirecutter's Doug Mahoney says he's been testing lights for years and these are some of the longest-lasting; you can easily re-use this every year. After spending 70 hours researching Christmas lights and talking to a ton of experts, Mahoney wholeheartedly recommends the brand.
