Target cuts price of Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S

Target cuts price of Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S
Target is expanding the Apple Store-within-a-store concept and is also cutting the price of the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S by $50 each with a signed 2-year contract, according to 9to5Mac. The 8GB Apple iPhone 4 is now priced at $49.99 and the 16GB Apple iPhone 4S is $149.99. You will have to come into the store to get the deal because it is not available on Target's website. Both AT&T and Verizon models are being discounted.

The discount is available through May 12th,which is this coming Saturday according to our calendar. There is no word on whether or not the $50 haircut applies to higher capacity models. Earlier this year, Target offered a $200 trade-in for the Apple iPhone 4 which essentially allowed owners to trade up for free to the Apple iPhone 4S. Of course, that deal required you to sign a 2-year pact, but ended on March 3rd.

With the Iphone5 supposed to come out soon looks like they might be trying to clear inventory before they have to really cut the price soon.

With Verizon pushing LTE, AT&T deploying LTE, folks are getting attracted and pushed to LTE devices. A price drop may be just enough to entice people enough to think, "for another two years, I will be okay with 3G".

People already start to think the iPhone is outdated and that why the discounts start.

ahh.. and hes back to being the normal troll. ya can never hide it for too long, can ya? funny since you iNuts keep saying Android is for tech literate people, so on and so forth and iOS is easier. It really sounds like the more intelligent people gravitate to android more often than not. You guys contradict yourself too much.

Studies show iPhone users are more educated and intelligent. You're a perfect example of android users being lower tier

Was that the same study that claimed that iPhone users were more tech savvy (but that didn't really say that)?

i take that as a compliment from you since just about everything you say is opposite of reality.

Very Intelligent phone? Rich people phone? Only prisoner and Iphone users need to “Jail Break” and naive people sell their kidney for the phone. My GOD how evil is this phone (Only if Steve Job could answer).

radioshack also has this same promo. But They have all three iphones on there. Sprint, att , and verizon! better deal plus radioshack always have them in stock, i tried getting one at target i had to drive 10 miles. Radioshack had it around the corner.

Thats because Target Mobile is owned by Radioshack. So the bigwigs in Texas finally got around to putting the new prices for Target Mobile in the system so that both sites match up in pricing. From what Im hearing Iphone sales arent doing so well lately in Shacklandia and theyre in a panic to sell phones to the point of taking a slight hit on them in order to get them moving.
