Apple Sale: Best Buy Temporarily Cuts iPhone 5S Price
The holiday shopping season may have ended, but great deals on Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) products are still available. A new promotion from Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) is offering the 16GB iPhone 5S for $125 with a standard two-year service contract from AT&T (NYSE:T), Sprint (NYSE:S) or Verizon (NYSE:VZ). This is $75 less than Best Buy’s regular iPhone 5S price of $200.
However, smartphone shoppers hoping to take advantage of Best Buy’s sale will need to move quickly. As noted by CNET, the deal expires at the end of Saturday, January 4. Luckily, shoppers don’t have to travel to a brick-and-mortar retail store in order to secure a discounted iPhone 5S. The sale price is also valid through Best Buy’s online storefront.
For smartphone shoppers looking for a mid-range device, Best Buy is still offering Apple’s iPhone 5C for free with a two-year service contract. Shoppers that are looking to upgrade their existing smartphone may also be eligible for additional savings through Best Buy’s trade-in program. According to Best Buy’s website, customers can get a gift card worth up to $200 when they trade in their old smartphone at participating store locations. Trade-ins can also be completed online, but it may take up to two weeks to receive the gift card.
Here’s how Apple has traded over the past five sessions.
