So you want an iPhone X so much you’re willing to preorder the thing. The only question is where.

If you choose Best Buy you’ll pay $1,099 up front for the cheapest, 64GB version on all three carriers. That’s $100 more than the exact same phone ordered from Apple.

Best Buy‘s higher price only applies if you pay the full price up front. If you pay over time, pricing is basically the same as on Apple’s site.

Best Buy’s representative did not immediately reply to CNET’s request for comment.

The retailer also charged more for preorders of the iPhone 8. At the time a company representative told customers on its forum that the phone is not eligible for price matching, and couldn’t explain the higher price.
