With the hell that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday now nothing but a painful, distant memory you may be forgiven for thinking that all the good bargains have been and gone. But, thankfully, you would be sorely mistaken – especially if you’re on the lookout for either an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus.
Keen to keep the discounts rolling, the mammoth Walmart has discounted both of Apple’s latest and greatest smartphones by a generous $50, and while it’s not the kind of discount that will have anyone buying one on a whim, it’s a worthwhile reduction nonetheless.
Before the sale began Walmart sold the 16GB iPhone 6 for $179, with an iPhone 6 Plus in the same capacity setting customers back $279. As of today the two will cost $129 and $229 respectively, though you will obviously have to pay for that two-year contract that inevitably comes with such a deal. Still, you’ve got to pay for that anyway, right? And also, these offers are available in-store only.
A massive sale it may not be, but it does make Walmart a better bet as far as pricing is concerned when compared even with Apple’s own stores, so if an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus has been on your Christmas wishlist this year then now is the time to treat yourself to one of the best smartphones on the planet. The fact it’s now cheaper than it was last week is just gravy.
Running for nothing more than a week, the sale also includes Apple’s older iPhone 5s model as well as Samsung Galaxy S5 if that’s something you’d prefer. It’s worth noting that the new prices are only available in-store too, so don’t go scouring the website expecting to find any bargains there. That’s right folks, if you want a discounted phone then you’re going to have to leave the house to do it.
But at least you can get all your groceries while you’re doing it.
Oh OK then, maybe not groceries. Mountain Dew and Doritos sound better?
