    On top of this, spend over $8000 in Fortress with a Standard Chartered credit card to get $450 cash back.

    So total $2950 in cash back and vouchers if you purchase an $8000 iphone, on a Tuesday or Sunday, in Fortress, in Harbour City, using a Standard Chartered credit card.
    I stand in awe of your ability to scout deals.

    This could only have been improved by adding something like: The best way to buy a new iphone is from Fortress in Harbour City using a Standard Chartered credit card every Tuesday or Sunday while hopping widdershins on your left foot and chanting the Hong Kong Haka

    If you open, you can check for defects straight away.

    You can take it away without opening, if you wanted to. However you’ll only be covered with the local Apple 1 year warranty.

You do have to call a hotline to register though, but at least no need to fuss with past-sale shopping center coupons.

    The only difference I've found between buying iPhones at the Apple Store versus buying at retailers like Wilson, Fortress, and Broadway is that the salesperson has to unbox it and turn it on before giving to you. Probably so you wouldn't turn around and re-sell it immediately a new phone for a big profit (more relevant if the iPhone model is very new).

    The physical Apple Stores accept AlipayHK. They have accepted for a few years now. The online Apple Store does not take AlipayHK though.
