Price cut for Apple iPhone 5 is on Target
posted by Alan F. / Jun 01, 2013, 11:10 AM
Another promotion for the Apple iPhone 5 can be found at Target. The discount retailer is taking $50 off the price of the Verizon, AT&T and Sprint version of the handset starting on Sunday and running through June 9th. That is the day before WWDC kicks off. But wait-there's more. Through July 9th, trade in a working cellphone and take another $50 off the Apple iPhone 5 or Apple iPhone 4S. Again, a two year pact must be signed.
Why is there such a strong desire to get rid of Apple iPhone 5 inventory? If we didn't know any better, we would think that a new version of the handset is on the way.

Part of the reason why it's expensive is because of it's high resale value. The iPhone 5 is the most advance iPhone money can buy, therefore, it's clearly not a mid-range device. If you are like many people who can't afford the iPhone 5, you have the option of the 4S or 4. Personally, I am waiting for the 5S to come out and see how Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, Straight Talk, etc. positions the 5 and 4S. I need to replace my aging Moto Triumph that is going to be 2-years-old this July.

They're only speaking the truth. Refer to time magazines list of greatest inventions. Once something reaches icon status it never loses that distinction. You should know that, but I guess you don't use anything iconic.

They need to say "best" instead.

I would say it's the most well rounded. It's smaller screen, and basic UI make it the best phone for new Smartphone buyers, but the hardware is good enough for expert Smartphone users to still get by. But it is far from the best... There are many smartphones that best it in overall specs. That's like arguing that the Camry is the best car vs Corvettes, Hummers, and Ford F150s. Sometimes the phone or car that is the most well rounded is actually very mediocre and has had to make a lot of concessions to get to that status.

S-Plode, S-Cratch, S-Bloat. It can go the other way to.

The trade in at Target adds $50 to any existing trade in value towards the purchase of an iPhone. A phone that normally trades inf or nothing gets $50. A phone that normally trades in for $50 gets a total of $100 trade value.
