As if there wasn’t enough proof pointing at a couple of new iPhones coming our way next week, popular American retailer Target has slashed the on-contract price of the “old” Apple iPhone to a record low $99.99.
Well, technically, Walmart achieved the absolute record low earlier this week, when it dropped the iPhone 5 to $98 with AT&T, Sprint and Verizon 24-month pacts, but what’s two bucks nowadays?
Just like the competition, Target cuts the very lucrative iPhone 5 deals regardless of your choice of carrier, but of course, you’ll need to make do with just 16 GB of storage. Or, you know, cough up an extra 200 bucks for the 32 GB variant and a total of $400 for the 64 gigs flavor.
One more thing you’ll have to weigh in before deciding whether or not to take Target up on their offer is the promo is not available online, just in physical stores. Small inconvenience, if you ask me, considering the US Apple Store continues to list the iPhone 5 starting at $200.
Meanwhile, the aging but still snazzy and robust as heck iPhone 4S is itself available for a special price via Target stores, namely $49.99 with customary 24-month Verizon, AT&T and Sprint carrier agreements. That’s also a pretty nice deal, though no match for Walmart’s, where the two year-old handheld goes for 10 bucks less.
