It may have recently fallen out with Beyoncé over her decision to debut her new album on iTunes rather than in brick-and-mortar stores, but Target isn’t above going down the Apple route to grab a pre-Christmas buck either.

Customers searching for perfect last-minute holiday gift ideas can head to Target, which is offering deals on the iPhone 5c, 5s, and iPad Air between now and December 24.

(N.B. The iPhone deals require users to take a two-year contract with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.)

Here are the deals Target is offering:

  • iPhone 5C  16GB – $30 plus a $30 Target Gift Card
  • iPhone 5S  16GB – $179.99 plus a $25 Gift Card
  • iPad Air – $470 plus $20 Gift Card
  • iPad mini, first generation – $299 plus $30 Gift Card

Target shoppers can even get an extra $25 in store credit toward the purchase of an iPhone if they trade in their old model smartphone in working condition.

Just to put all that in context, it means that customers could pay as little as $5 for a 16GB iPhone 5c.
