Rumor: Sam's Club to Sell iPhone 4 for $147
The holiday shopping season has not been spared from the red hot retail rumor mill in the least. On Monday, one of the biggest rumored iPhone sales in recent memory sprang up thanks to a "leaked internal memo" that supposedly originated from Sam's Club. According to the document, Apple's 16GB iPhone 4 will soon be available for $147 with a two-year AT&T contract. Similarly, the 8GB iPhone 3GS will be rolled out for just $47 with a two-year contract.
Given Apple's aggressive push into the shelves of major retailers, it isn't a big shocker that the Cupertino-based tech giant would turn to Sam's Club as yet another viable outlet to carry the world's most popular smartphone. "We will be offering these devices at this outstanding Member value until Christmas Day," the memo reads. "Please reprint your flags and have a great sales weekend."
With smartphones and tablets being among the most popular gifts this holiday season, retailers are massively slashing prices on many of the hottest would-be gifts through Christmas. This is a practice that has surprisingly included Apple's iPhone to an unprecedented extent. From now through December 25th, there is no shortage of opportunities to buy an iPhone at discounted prices. And if the Sam's Club deal actually manifests, it could very well be the best iPhone deal available anywhere this holiday season.
