We’re all friends here we’ve done our homework, we wanted the iPhone X and knew what it took to get one. No rainchecks, no holds – this is what you have to do sometimes to get the newest gadgets and deals it is what it is. It’s a lot of fun and exciting to do this.”
Not only did Sams Club offer the iPhone X but also the hard to find iPhone 8S and 8 Plus. A store employee mentioned other items that were on the morning “deal” – TV’s, Xboxes, and other Electronics, but most were in line for the chance to get the newest iPhones.
