Great news for people who are looking for the unique chances to get an Apple device. Today Best Buy is planning to cut $50 off the iPhone in a four-week promotion that kicks off on Sunday. The price cut applies to the purchase of the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 in conjunction with a two-year contract with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint.
The promotion is a nice opportunity to grab a 16GB iPhone 5 for just $150 with a two-year contract.
Ina Fried, reporting for AllThingsD
, explains that Best Buy in additional short-term promotions over Memorial Day is including “several popular but older Android models.”
Specifically, from May 26 to June 1 Samsung’s Galaxy S III will retail for $49 on AT&T or Sprint (a $50 saving), HTC’s Droid DNA for Verizon for $49 (a $150 saving) and HTC’s One X on AT&T for free (a $100 saving).
It’s not clear whether Best Buy is clearing stock ahead of a next-generation iPhone or just including Apple’s handset in the Memorial Day Android promotion.
For what it’s worth, given the aforementioned Android devices are discounted only from May 26 to June 1 while Apple’s handset is offered for $50 less in a four-week run gives us reasons to suspect that Best Buy could in fact be clearing old stock. Apple’s distributors normally slash current iPhone models in the weeks leading up to a new model.
So what are you waiting for ?
