Best Buy beats Target and Walmart with free iPhone 5c

See also

Best Buy has matched, and slightly improved, Target's good deal on iPhone 5c: Best Buy now offers a new iPhone 5c free with a new two-year commitment for smartphone service with either Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. This is for the 16 gigabyte model in any of the five colors that Apple makes: yellow, pink, green, blue or white. The deal appeared on Dec. 26, the same day that NewsNet listed Kohl's, Best Buy and other Cleveland-area places to shop for after Christmas bargains.

This is slightly better than Target's deal because Target requires that you spend $30 for the iPhone 5c and then receive a Target gift card worth $30. At this point, Walmart appears not to be competing with its big box rivals iPhone 5c prices, though Walmart has offered iPhone 5c for $50 since October. Apple stands pat with its list price of $99.

All the deals mentioned above are for a 16 gigabyte iPhone 5c purchased in conjunction with a new two-year commitment for phone service.

The iPhone 5c uses the same A6 microchip as last year's iPhone 5, has an excellent 8 megapixel Eysight camera and 4-inch Retina Display screen. All four major U.S. carriers, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, support the iPhone 5c, and you can purchase iPhone 5C at any of their local stores, though we have yet to see them offer prices as low as Best Buy and Target. Nevertheless, the zero price is likely to be a sign of things to come because smartphone prices fall quickly as their technology ages.
