Walmart Dropping Price of iPhone 5c to $0.97, iPhone 5s to $79 for 90-Day Period

Walmart will begin offering the 16 GB iPhone 5c for $0.97 with a two-year contract during the next 90 days, reports Engadget.
iphone_5s_5c.jpg The move by the retailer follows a permanent discount of the 16GB iPhone 5c to $29 in June, as Walmart will offer the special pricing to customers on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular. The company is also dropping the on-contract price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to $79, down from $99.

It is likely that these new price drops are being done to get rid of existing inventory before the introduction of the iPhone 6, which will be unveiled on September 9 and likely go on sale about a week later. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is expected to be launched first, as the release of the 5.5-inch version may be delayed due to production issues. Both versions are likely to incorporate a faster A8 chip, a new camera system, an improved Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and iOS 8.

Not everyone needs (or even wants) the latest, greatest model. These are some nice deals, and will remain so even after the iPhone 6 is launched.

I hope no one buys it if they don't have to because the new will come out soon. Unless they can't afford the new one.

Or don't care...

Really? An unlocked iPhone with no strings attached? :eek:



Ah, I see. Yet another misleading headline. :rolleyes:


Sort of preaching to the wrong choir aren't you? Forum members tend to understand phone subsidies. :confused:

For those who are determined to stick to the 4" display, these deals are great.

I fully expect this pricing to remain when the iPhone 6 comes out - and I also expect to see a good bump in sales of these models because of it.

I can see plenty of companies jumping on the 5C at Free/$449 and 5S at $99/$549 for their employees.

I'm telling you....Apple is going to sell more iPhones than anyone else sells of all their smartphones next quarter. Just watch.

For once, I'm not looking forward to the latest iPhones. I'll gladly pick up one of these if apple does go thru with the Dino sizes.

I got my wife the iphone 5 on launch day and it was the best move at the time. That phone will last another 2 year (barring any mishaps) and I don't even remember paying the $200 back then. I would say that paying the extra $120 could mean another year of ownership plus you have the latest and greatest.
It's funny because we pay almost $1900 on a 2 year contract yet we complain about $120 in savings upfront for a old phone.

I wonder where Walmart got 97¢ from? Kind of arbitrary :


Here's my 2c (geddit?:D):

Walmart does that with a lot of their prices. It's so they can be cheaper than everybody else selling stuff for $x.99.

Most Americans don't have the first clue how much a phone actually costs or how much they are being over charged on contracts.
