The price of iPhone 5S has been slashed by $26. Walmart is now offering an on-contract 16GB iPhone 5s for $119. Its previous rate was $145.
A $16 price drop is available for the iPhone 5C. Walmart is now offering an on-contract 16GB iPhone 5C for just $29 instead of $45.
Walmart also dropped the price of Samsung Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 is now available at Walmart for $49 instead of $99 as per two years contract. And Walmart will also give a free $50 Walmart gift card to those customers who buy any Samsung phone with a two year contract between March 9th and March 22nd.
But both of these iPhone models are now available at the cheapest prices ever at Walmart. However, buyers can get iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C or Samsung Galaxy S4 at these discounted prices only with a two year agreement with either AT&T or Verizon.
Walmart actually wants to beat Best Buy in the smart phone pricing war especially for iPhones. Best Buy is also offering iPhone 5S for $149.99, iPhone 5c for $49.99 and Samsung Galaxy S4 for $49.99 with two year contracts.
Normally, retailers cut prices to clear out their current stock ahead of a new product launch. And if this is the case with Walmart's iPhones price drop, the rumors about Apple's early (spring) launch of its new iPhone 6 will surely prove to be true.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
