6 Amazing ways you could spend $1,000 instead of on an iPhone X
Apple’s iPhone X is here, and it’s gotten mostly positive reviews.
CNBC’s Todd Haselton calls it “the best smartphone you can buy,” and TechCrunch says “it really is like using the future of smartphones, today.”
But, despite the good buzz, the phone’s price tag is still enough to scare off many other shoppers. It starts at $999 and goes up to $1,150 for a model with extra storage. “If you don’t really care about phones or about having the latest and greatest, then there’s really no need to buy an iPhone X,” Haselton says. “Save some dough.”
Here are some alternative ideas for what you could do with $1,000.
1. Drink 235 pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks
It’s that time of year. At $4.25 a pop for a tall size, you’d be able to consume 235 of the fall favorites for the same price as one iPhone X.
Holiday flavors like peppermint take over for pumpkin spice around December — or whenever stores run out of supplies — so if you’re committed to the autumnal staple, you’d have to make around seven Starbucks runs per day.
