In another last minute Christmas Eve offer, BestBuy is offering the 32GB iPhone 4 in a Buy One, Get One Free Offer.

Apple doesn't officially offer the 32GB iPhone 4 anymore. After the introduction of the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 4 is being officially sold now as an 8GB model only, but stock of the 32GB models must remain. The 32GB iPhone 4 costs $199 plus 2 year contract. If you buy two from Best Buy today (in store only), you get the 2nd one free. Both need to sign up for two year contracts, but it's still a nice savings -- if you're in the market for two new iPhone 4 devices.

Oh noooo Apple must really be in dire straights if they are offering their phones for free.

/end sarcasm

That comment was directed towards a few people that insist when any android phone is sold for .01 or drastically reduced that it's the phone manufacturer (not the retail store) giving the deal and trying to push out phones.

It's also directed at the ones that insist that if phones are given away cheaply - they must suck.

Apple does not typically run sales, except for the typical Black Friday discounts. Whereas other brands can be pretty aggressive with their discounting. So many analysts see Apple losing the business of people who cannot afford a lot of money upfront. The free 3Gs (with contract) from AT&T changed that. And now we see Apple selling other items at a discount. They are aggressively courting the bargain-seekers. They have owned the high end (certainly if you look solely at profit) and are now wooing the lower end.

Not quite true, they haven't gone bust. Carphone Warehouse are closing the shops down because they were not profitable.

No need to be pedantic. The fact is that Best Buy UK will no longer exist. They spent over £100 million setting the business up only to find they dont make any profit. The choices were stay open and have both Best Buy (US) and Carphone Warehouse having to fund a failed business, or shut up shop and move on.

To be £35 mil in debt is not a good thing...

The only remaining entity will be 'Geek Squad' which is offered in most, if not all Carphone Warehouse stores. Other than that BestBuy will no longer exist in the UK (not even as an online-only shop).

Relax folks, this is a Best Buy ad... they retain the right to cancel your oder before delivery. In the meantime you get a good feeling about saving money.

Only 360 shopping-minutes left for all you last-minute shoppers.
