Wal-Mart to sell iPhone 5c for $27 with contract on Friday
As part of a holiday sale starting Friday, Wal-Mart plans to offer the iPhone 5c for $27 with a two-year contract from AT&T or Verizon.
That’s a huge discount on the iPhone 5c, a $99 model that Apple introduced just three months ago.
The iPhone 5c has struggled to sell and Wal-Mart has been discounting it since it was released in September. Friday’s sale price won’t be as good at what Wal-Mart offered on Black Friday -- $45 for an iPhone 5c with a $75 gift card thrown in -- but you’ll be hard pressed to find the iPhone 5c for cheaper than $27.
Besides the iPhone 5c, Wal-Mart will also discount other Apple gadgets.
The iPhone 5s, also new this year, will be available for $127 with a two-year contract, down from its normal price of $199. The 16 GB iPad mini will be available at its normal price of $299 but will come with a $50 gift card. And finally, Wal-Mart will sell $30 Apple iTunes gift cards for $25.
Wal-Mart’s Friday sale also includes other electronics, video games, toys and clothing. The sale kicks off Friday at 8 a.m. local time. Sale prices are in effect through Dec. 24 or while supplies last, Wal-Mart said.
