It’s that time of year again! The newest Apple gadgets have been released, rendering our current versions obsolete
or at least suspiciously glitchy. The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X have made their debut with price tags between $699-$1,149. I personally could never spend that kind of money on a cell phone, because my priorities are arranged a little differently. If I’m spending more than $400 on anything, I’m instantly comparing it to the costs of travel. We did this last year with the iPhone 7, so here it is again in 2017. These are 4 amazing vacations you could take for the price of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

1- 10 DAY CHINA TOUR W/ AIRFARE
For just $649, this Groupon deal includes round-trip airfare from Chicago, airport transfers, 8 night hotel accommodations, 13 meals, and free tours! That’s $50 less than the 64GB iPhone 8, which costs $699. Imagine that, you can vacation lavishly in the country where the iPhone is made for less than what it costs you to go up the street and buy one. The irony.
2 – 11 DAY SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN CRUISE
At just $849 per person, the price of the 256GB iPhone 8 Plus, you could book a beautiful ocean view room on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Jade. Embark in New York and disembark in Miami, and hit San Juan, Puerto Rico, Kralendijk, Bonaire, Willemstad, Curacao, Oranjestad, Aruba, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica in between! Not to mention Norweigan’s Free at Sea specials, where you can choose from FREE unlimited open bar, specialty dining, shore excursions, wifi, or extra stateroom guests!
3 – 8 DAY TOUR OF ISRAEL W/ AIRFARE
For $1,149, or the price of the 256 GB iPhone X, you could be vacationing in the Holy Land with this Groupon Getaway. Get round-trip airfare from New York to Israel, and domestic transport and tours throughout Tel Aviv, Tiberias, Galilee, and Jerusalem. Hotel accommodations in all cities are included, as well as six breakfasts and two lunches!
4 – 9 DAY SOUTHERN SPAIN VACATION
Imagine driving along the Southern coast of Spain a la Thelma and Louise. With Gate 1 Travel, you can spend 9 days cruising through Costa del Sol, Cordoba, and my personal favorite, Seville for $1009. This includes round trip airfare from New York, car rental and insurance, hotel accommodations, and daily breakfast. The 64GB iPhone X is $999.
