Walmart to Sell iPhone 5C for $79 and iPhone 5S for $189
If you are looking to pick up one of Apple’s two new iPhones, you can save some money if you go to Walmart. The retail giant announced that it is offering both devices at a discount from the time they launch. Walmart will be offering 16 GB models of both the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S at a discount according to CNET
. The 16GB iPhone 5C will sell for $79 while the 16GB iPhone 5S will sell for $189, savings of $20 and $10 respectively.
The iPhone 5C will be available at the listed price beginning Friday, September 13, when pre-orders for the device begin. Customers must pre-order at a physical Walmart location though, as online pre-orders are not offered. The orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis with a requirement of the device being picked up by September 25. Since there is no pre-order period for the iPhone 5S, customers will have to pick up this device in stores when it launches on September 20.
Pricing on both the phones is contingent upon a customer signing up for a new, two-year contract with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. Customers who wait until Saturday will also be able to take advantage of Walmart’s new trade-in program. Depending on the condition of the device being traded-in, customers can receive up to $300 in store credit toward the purchase of a new smartphone. The new phones will have to be activated in store for Verizon, Sprint, AT&T or Walmart’s pre-paid wireless service as well.
Are any of you going to take advantage of the offer?
