We’re just a few days away from learning all the details (and price) of the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, which means retailers like Best Buy are scrambling to clear all their old iPhone 5 inventory off shelves. Best Buy is taking $50 off the price of the iPhone 5, in an effort to lure new customers in.
This isn’t the first time the retailer has sold the iPhone 5 for $149, but T-Mobile customers are still out of luck, as the offer is only available to Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon customers.

Earlier this month, Best Buy kicked off a two-day promotion that offered up a $200 gift card when you traded in your old iPad for a brand new model. It was obviously a big success, because just two weeks later, the promotion is running for a second time.
