The iPhone 5 doesn't go on sale often, but three retailers are currently offering a holiday discount.

RadioShack is offering $20 off of all AT&T iPhone 5 purchases, putting the base 16GB iPhone 5 at $179.99 for new and upgrade-ready AT&T customers. The 32GB model costs $279.99 with the discount, and the 64GB model is $379.99.

Target Mobile, which is operated by RadioShack, has the same deal, with $20 off of all AT&T iPhone 5 purchases.

The promotions are in-store only, so potential customers will need to head to their local Target Mobile location or RadioShack to get the deal. The sale started on December 5, and will continue until December 15.

Best Buy is offering a similar deal, with a free $25 Best Buy Gift Card with the purchase of any iPhone 5. This offer includes phones from Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and AT&T, with a 2-year contract agreement.

When buying in store, customers will receive the gift card immediately, while online customers will receive an e-gift card within 3 to 5 days of the phone's ship date.

Refurbished is the way to go. Got the $99 black Friday deal from AT&T ($199 for my 32GB) for my wife and I. Just received them today and they look and work great :cool:

You save a couple hundred bucks on the phones yet you'll spend thousands of dollars over the next two years just to use them.

apples fault

I love apple just as much as the next guy on this site but I think they are the reason why the phone plans are so absurdly high. Along with the other phone makers out there. Think about it apple is charging the phone companies the full cost of the phone a little over 600 and there mark up is absurd. But it doesn't matter to apple since they know the phone companies will never charge more than 200 for the phone. The only way for the companies to make money is the charge you extremely high fees to use the phone.

Im not blaming any one company but apple definitely has a hand in the high prices of cellular service.

So there's no change in price on the contract's bloated monthly payments?

Cheaper to buy it unlocked directly from Apple and get a nice $30-$50 plan from T-Mobile. The savings will pay off the phone before the year is out.
