Apple’s new iPhone XS appears to be doing quite well. iPhones are more than just smartphones in some circles. They are often regarded as symbols of wealth and status. The iPhone is a highly desired smartphone globally for that reason as well. An iPhone XS customer in Russia decided to make his purchase of the device memorable by paying for it with a bathtub full of coins.

Ludmila Semushina, head of an authorized Apple reseller in Russia, posted about this story on her Facebook account. The customer actually came in with a group of men because that many people were required to carry the bathtub full of coins.

They had around 100,000 Russian rubles in the tub which is just over $1,400. That’s what the iPhone XS with 256GB of storage costs in the country. Since coins are legal tender, they technically didn’t do anything wrong by paying with so many coins that the store clerk would have required considerable time to count.

It’s a fun little prank that these people did. However, if you’re someone who works at an Apple store or reseller, you’d probably be wishing that you don’t end up being the person who wants to pay for their iPhone with just coins.
