If you’re planning on buying one of the new iPhones, you might want to consider visiting Walmart. The retail giant is offering the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s at discounted prices. The company offers handsets that run on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless.
Walmart is offering the entry-level iPhone 5c at just $79, which is a $20 savings. The least extensive iPhone 5s will set you back $189, which is a $10 discount.
Like other retailers, Walmart will begin accepting iPhone 5c preorders beginning tomorrow, Sept. 13. There will be no preorders available on the iPhone 5s.
Both handsets arrive on Friday, Sept. 20 in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
As noted by 9to5Mac, Walmart’s discounts could lead markdowns at other locations:
What’s interesting here is that Apple Stores usually do price matching so it might be worth a try after waiting on line on launch day. Best Buy will also price match often, so this could trigger markdowns all over …
Walmart’s discounts are currently only available in stores, and not online.
