Add to that the available exchange offer and bundled payment offers, you could end up saving even more. Amazon is also teasing 'never before offers' on the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 6, so this could be a good time to get one of the older iPhone models, if you've had your eye on one.
