Best Buy is once again giving a pretty steep discount to the iPhone 5 as well as “other select iPhone models”. This time, however, it appears as if the discount is to get rid of some iPhone 5 inventory before the iPhone 5S is announced, which is expected to happen next Tuesday.
This deal means that the iPhone 5 16GB version will cost just $149.99 with a new 2-year contract. However, this is also just a trick by Best Buy to get more sales before the next iPhone is launched. When the iPhone 5S is released, the iPhone 5 will most likely be dropped down to just $99 on a new contract, meaning that it would be even cheaper than Best Buy’s current promotion. If you’re looking to snatch up a new iPhone 5 sometime soon, I recommend waiting until the iPhone 5S is released, and you can save some extra money too.
Will you be picking up a discounted iPhone 5 when the next version of Apple’s iPhone is announced next week? Drop a comment below and let us know!
