Until yesterday, Google had been offering anyone who purchased a Pixel 2 XL $ 100 in Google Store credit. But now, a new offer for the Pixel 2 XL has taken its place: a $ 200 statement credit when financed with Google Store Financing. A free 18W charger will be thrown in even if you don’t choose to finance.

The Google Store has only run one financing deal before, and that was a $ 75 credit on the Pixel when it was just already eight months old.

Goldman Sachs Rumored to Partner with Apple for Low-Cost Financing

Apple is reportedly in talks with Wall Street heavyweight, Goldman Sachs, over an agreement that would see the banking and investment-giant provide Apple customers with yet another option to finance their purchase, according to a report out this morning from The Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the matter, WSJ says Goldman Sachs desires to team up with Apple as it seeks to grow its consumer lending business, and hopes to ultimately offer another financing option for shoppers looking to buy essentially anything from Apple’s website.

“Customers purchasing a $ 1,000 iPhone X could take out a loan from Goldman instead of charging it to credit cards that often carry high interest rates,” The Wall Street Journal noted, while cautioning, however, that “talks between the tech giant and the investment bank are continuing and could still fall apart.”

Additional details about the [potential] Goldman Sachs finance option remain unknown; and it wasn’t revealed whether said option will replace or join the myriad of other financing options Apple already offers customers during checkout.

Apple’s finance options currently include the Barclay’s Apple Store credit card, which touts promotional, 18-month, zero-interest financing on qualifying purchases for well qualified buyers — though if any balance remains after the promo period ends, your entire purchase, retroactively, would be subject to as much as 28 percent interest.

The company also offers its iPhone Upgrade Program via Citizens Financial Group, under the terms of which customers not only spread out the cost of their iPhone over 24 months, but are free to upgrade to any newer iPhone model without having to pay a substantial fee.

“It is unclear,” however, “whether anything will change with the handling of the outstanding Citizens loans,” WSJ noted.

Potential Benefits of the Deal

While nothing is set in stone just yet, as we mentioned, the potential benefits of an Apple & Goldman Sachs partnership could spell great news, particularly for those who either do not qualify for the company’s other finance options, or who simply want to acquire the latest iPhone, HomePod, or even the iMac Pro, via an alternative, monthly payment plan.

Not to mention, but with Apple already rumored to be developing a range of more powerful and, as a result, expensive iPhone, iPad, and Mac computer models for later this year, a new financing option might even be necessary in the long run.

Apple might have a unique deal in the works to make financing iPhones a little easier

iPhone X Financing

The iPhone X’s sky-high price is the main reason why Apple didn’t sell more of its new flagship over Christmas. That’s what various analysts said, about Apple’s first $ 1,000 smartphone ever.

But the iPhone X and its successors may become more affordable to buyers, without Apple having to drop the price. Enter Goldman Sachs.

The investment bank has already worked with Apple to raise tens of billions of dollars, but Goldman Sachs is now eying the consumer banking niche where Apple can help it net millions of potential customers looking for loans to pay their expensive iPhone habits.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Goldman Sachs is negotiating with Apple to offer financing options to iPhone buyers.

Goldman Sachs wants to tempt iPhone buyers with better loan deals than credit card institutions, the report notes.

The deal hasn’t been finalized, and talks could still fall apart. But if successful, Goldman Sachs may offer iPhone buyers a “point-of-sale” loan at checkout, that may be significantly cheaper than credit cards.

Goldman Sachs launched an online lender business called Marcus which helps people refinance credit-card-debt. Marcus loans come with a 12% interest rate.

Credit cards can charge upward of 20% in interest, aside from late fees and other charges. Should Goldman Sachs come with a Marcus-equivalent for iPhone purchases, then buyers may be more inclined to avoid credit cards when buying Apple’s expensive toys.

By targeting Apple fans, Goldman Sachs looks to grab a sizeable chunk of the point-of-sale loans business. In 2017, shoppers borrowed more than $ 200 billion from credit card companies according to First Annapolis estimates quoted by The Journal, with $ 80 billion of it going towards expensive furniture and electronics items.

This year, Apple is expected to launch three distinct iPhone X successors, including a more affordable version. But it’s unlikely for Apple to drop the price of the high-end iPhone X successor. $ 999 may stay in place as the new norm for flagship devices for at least a year. Samsung’s new Galaxy S and Note phones are also expected to be more expensive than last year’s models.
