Best Buy to Discount iPhone by $50 Beginning Sunday

iphone_5_black_whiteBest Buy is launching a new four week promotion that will drop the price of new iPhone purchases by $50. According to AllThingsD, the sale will apply to the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, and the iPhone 5, when purchased with a two-year contract from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

An iPhone with two-year contract typically costs $200 for the 16GB entry level phone, so with the sale, the price will drop to $150. The discount applies to all phone models.

Best Buy has offered similar sales in the past, most recently discounting the iPhone 5 by $50 during the holiday season. Other retailers have also offered significant discounts on the iPhone 5 in the past, with Walmart selling the device for $127 at one point.

Best Buy's current sale will begin on Sunday, May 26 and it will run for four weeks.

Best Buy (http://www.bestbuy.com) is launching a new four week promotion that will drop the price of new iPhone purchases by $50. According to AllThingsD (http://allthingsd.com/20130524/best-buy-to-offer-50-off-apples-iphone-starting-sunday/), the sale will apply to the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, and the iPhone 5, when purchased with a two-year contract from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

Wait, so the on contract $0.99 iPhone 4 will also get a $50 discount? So they'll pay you $49.01 and give you an iPhone 4 to sign up for a 2 year contract? :confused:

Does anyone know if this coupon is good for no-contract phones too ?


Reading comprehension

when purchased with a two-year contract from Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

So no

This MUST be an indication of the new iPhone 5S launching at WWDC with a better camera, bigger and better screen (500+ PPI), faster processor, GorillaGlass 3, fingerprint scanner, capacitive touch home button and Ive's flat black and white all-new iOS!

In all seriousness, older tech has and always will be discounted when newer tech is on its way.

Either the 5S is coming out next month (WWDC surprise) or sales are slow enough to justify the sooner than expected discount.

I got an e-mail from AT&T last week saying I could upgrade my iPhone 4 to a 16gb iPhone 5 for $100 (I am out of contract). Decided to pass since the iPhone 4 really does everything I need plus I have the 32gb model and it's full. :)

That deal probably requires you to trade in your iPhone 4. That essentially means you are selling your iP4 for $100. You could get more selling it on eBay/Craigslist.

Your guess is as good as mine.

Hopefully they will price match the phone I just bought two days ago!


Good luck; you'd be crazy not to try.

Gotta love those Memorial Day weekend sales! :)
