The major carriers all have their iPhone launch offers out. AT&T and Verizon seem to both be offering the same basic deal, buy one and save $700 on another. T-Mobile has the same thing plus a trade-in offer for $300 off. Sprint may have the best deal of all though. Customers can get an iPhone XS for $0/month with an eligible trade in.
Sprint's iPhone XS And XS Max Launch Offers
Through 10/5/18 Sprint is offering the 64GB iPhone XS for $0/month and the 64GB iPhone XS Max for $4.17/month with an eligible device trade in.

This offer does require you to activate a new line of service and have approved credit. Customers will then get the iPhone XS for free or the XS Max for $4.17/month on a lease after a $41.67/month bill credit. The bill credit will appear within the customer's first two billing cycles. Customers will be required to keep their leases for 18 months. If service gets canceled the remaining lease ($41.67/month multiplied by however many months of the lease you have left) balance will automatically become due.

Verizon iPhone Offers
Verizon is offering "buy the latest iPhone, save $700 on another." They are also offering $100 or more for trade-ins, but the two offers cannot be combined.

For the $100 or more in a trade-in, you'll get $100 off an iPhone Xs Max, Xs, X, 8 Plus or 8 when you trade-in a device that's in good working condition. The $100 will be issued to you over the course of 24 months in the form of monthly bill credits.
