T-Mobile, regional carriers offering iPhone 5s and 5c for $0 down on Black Friday

iPhone-5s5c-deals

According to a leaked internal memo posted by TmoNews, T-Mobile is going to be dropping the upfront price of both the iPhone 5s and 5c to $0 down on its usual installment plans for Black Friday. That cuts the usual down payment for the iPhone 5s down from $149 and the iPhone 5c from $49. The deal will officially kick off on Friday and last through Sunday, but the report notes that “a select number of stores will be accepting orders from Thursday evening.” After getting your iPhone for $0 down, you’ll pay around $20 a month for 24 months on T-Mobile installment plans.

Some regionals carriers are also gearing up for big discounts this Friday. Appalachian Wireless announced it will offer the 16GB iPhone 5, 5C or 5S for a penny on contract today only and nTelos will also have the iPhone 5c for $0 on Friday. Appalachian is also advertising the penny deal for Black Friday on its site, but no word if iPhones will be included after today. T-Mobile definitely beats Walmart’s best deal with the iPhone 5c for around $45 on contract, but we’re thinking other retailers and carriers might announce iPhone discounts for Black Friday too.

Walmart will credit YOU $30 to get an iPhone 5c on contract this Black Friday

apple-iphone-5c-black-friday-walmart-deal-9to5toysEarlier this week Walmart released their entire Black Friday deals and amongst the best is a free $75 gift card with the purchase of an iPhone 5s or 5c. Now, that is a great deal considering the iPhone 5c typically costs $99 on a 2-year contract so the free gift card would offset nearly 75% of your out of pocket cost, but wait – it gets better! Along with the gift card promotion, Walmart is also dropping the contract price of the iPhone 5c down to $45.walmart-black-friday-deal-iphone-5c-9to5toys

That means that if you buy an iPhone 5c with a 2-year contract from Walmart on Black Friday you will net $30 in Walmart gift cards. This is the first time ever a retailer is theoretically paying a consumer to take an iPhone off their hands. This may be a reflection of weak demand for the 5c or perhaps just the competitive nature of holiday pricing. Check out our complete coverage of the Walmart Black Friday ad here.

ipad-2-staples-deal-free-gift-card-appleUpdate: While Newegg’s deal on iPad 4th gen. is over, the 16GB WiFi model (black or white) for $399.99 with free shipping is now available through eBay once again. That is the best price ever for the current generation iPad. The iPad 2 from Staples is now sold out.

Apple’s event tomorrow is rumored to spotlight the iPad lineup and may result in a price drop or even discontinuation of the iPad 2, but on the cusp of this event we have a great deal on this device. Staples has the black 16GB WiFi model for $399 packaged with a free $100 Staples gift card. That’s a value of nearly $500.

The gift card would be perfect to outfit your new iPad with a smart cover, bluetooth keyboard, or any other accessories.

If there is a bigger price drop or a new tablet your are interested in just return today’s deal. If not, enjoy your new iPad!
