Still stumped what to get your dad for Father’s Day? Apple’s hoping you’ll go big and gift him an iPad Air, but even if you just want to get a sweet iPhone case for the old man the online Apple Store will now ship it to you at no extra cost.
Periodically, Best Buy has been known to offer $50 discounts on select iPhones and iPads. If you’re looking to save a few bucks on an Apple product, Best Buy’s deals are a good, regularly occurring window to buy the device you’ve had your eye on.
If you’ve been waiting for that window to open again, good news! Starting this Sunday, February 16, and going to February 22nd, Best Buy will be taking $50 off the purchase of any iPhone with a two-year contract on any carrier.
You can also get $50 off the iPad mini with Retina Display, but only if you hop to it: that deal ends today. And if you trade in your old iPad while you’re with it, you can get a Best Buy gift card worth up to $200… probably not the best value for trading-in an old iPad, but a deal that could possibly influence some President’s Day weekend impulse shoppers.
Best Buy has knocked $75 off all iPhone 5s models for a limited time, making the 16GB model just $124.99 when bought with a two-year contract extension on AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. It’s one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for the device since it made its debut last September, but you’ll need to grab yours soon.
Want a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c but don’t have the dosh? If you have any smartphone that can boot up, Best Buy will be running a promotion next week where they’ll let you exchange it for $100 off a new iPhone 5c or 5s.
The iPhone 5c has barely been out for two weeks but a couple of retailers are already offering promotions on Apple’s plastic handset in hopes of getting more foot-traffic into to stores. RadioShack informed us that it will start offering the iPhone 5c for $50 starting Saturday, October 5th, matching Best Buy’s offer that was announced yesterday.
RadioShack’s discount isn’t a true price cut, but the store is giving customers a $50 gift card to use toward the price of their purchase to knock it down to 50 bucks. It’s similar to Best Buy’s iPhone 5c deal, except Best Buy’s $50 gift card can only be applied to future purchases. Like Best Buy, RadioShack’s offer is only valid when signing up for a new two-year contract, but if you want to drop the price even lower you can use RadioShack’s Trade & Save program and apply the value of your old smartphone to your new 5c.
Update: Not one to be outdone, Walmart just decided to drop the price on the iPhone 5c to $45 from now throughout the holidays.
