Walmart permanently cuts the Apple iPhone 5c to $29, Apple iPhone 5s to $99

Walmart permanently cuts the Apple iPhone 5c to $29, Apple iPhone 5s to $99
Looking to buy the Apple iPhone 5s or Apple iPhone 5c?  Starting tomorrow at 9am local time, your neighborhood Walmart store will be offering both iPhone models at a discount. With a signed two-year contract, the plastic-coated iPhone 5c will cost you $29, down from $49. The full-featured Apple iPhone 5s can be yours for $99 on-contract. That knocks $50 off the price of Apple's current flagship smartphone.

Late last year, Walmart sold the iPhone 5c for $27, and the iPhone 5s for $127. However, the new prices are said to be permanent and are available only at Walmart brick and mortar stores. The discount prices are for the 16GB version of the phone. While the 32GB variant of both the Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPhone 5c will also be discounted, the new prices for those models are unknown at this time.

We have to assume that by making these new prices permanent, Walmart is beginning to lighten its inventory of the two iPhone models in preparation for the new 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, and the 5.5 inch Apple iPhone phablet, both expected to be released later this year.

Its on sale because Apple doesn't want to get stuck with a lot of these 4" non HD iPhones in its inventory. When the iPhone 6 comes out. A lot of blinded iPhone users will realize Apple had them held back. Because now they will have a bigger HD display. Something that Android users have known all along for years. Phablets for years on Android people use them like tablets.
For the Apple users with 3.5" or 4" displays. It will be like welcome to 2011/2012. You can call it trolling, but this is just a fact.

Well we all know from the logic police that a phone only goes on sale because it isn't selling, and isn't premium.

I agree with you on this. I felt bad for Samsung Galexy S5 at launch when they had it discounted.

Fire sales before the release of iPhone 6. Seems like every one is doing it now.

iPhone 6 is the phone most worthy upgrade for its screen size.

True, so worthy, as it came from a lowly phone. But it'll still be behind.

RadioShack has the 5S for $80, If you have a somewhat new high end smartphone you want to trade in you could probably get the 5S for free and maybe have a little left over.
