Walmart to offer $20 or greater discount on 16GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus + $15 gift card on launch day

iPhone-6-03

Walmart, the giant US retailer, often negotiates exclusive price cuts on products that smaller retailers can’t match. Just like last year, it has set its sights on the all new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

According to a report published tonight by CNET, Walmart is set to trim $20 off both of Apple’s new super sized iPhones. That drops the iPhone 6 down to $179 and the iPhone 6 Plus down to $279. Both prices require a two-year commitment with AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. Also, beginning on Friday, September 12th, Walmart will begin accepting preorders for the iPhone 6. Anyone who preorders through Walmart will also get a free $15 e-gift card. Sam’s Club members will be able to save an additional $2 on both models, which brings their total discount down to $22.

Based on all the information we’ve seen thus far, these price drops only apply to the 16GB iPhone 6 models and only the 4.7-inch variant will be available for preorder. As of right now, the only other noteworthy iPhone 6 deal that we’ve seen is from Radio Shack who is offering a free $50 iTunes gift card with purchases through September 27th.

Monoprice iPhone 6 cases as low as $5.60 with free shipping

monoprice-iphone-6-case

Monoprice is listing cases for the new iPhone 6 as low as $5.60 with free standard shipping. Choose from several different colors and styles.

These probably aren’t going to be the best case you’ve ever owned, but for less than $6 they should be perfect to hold you over until you can find your ideal case. As of right now, the cases are slated to ship by tomorrow, so you shouldn’t have any problem getting one before September 19th. Note: Monoprice doesn’t mention if any of these cases are compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus.

Another best bet is to pay a couple extra dollars and go with a name brand case (update: buy through the Spigen eBay store to save even more). Either of these options are (probably) a smarter buy than Apple’s newly announced $35 silicone and $45 leather cases.

Upgrade your iPhone 4 (or newer) to a Verizon iPhone 6 for free w/ 2-yr contract (updated)

verizon-iphone-6-6-plus-free-trade

Update (9/12 2:45pm): The trade-in promo is outlined in this press release by Verizon.

Update (9/11 11:15am): The promo is still not back up on Verizon’s site, but the details can be found in this post made by a Verizon Wireless Customer Support rep.

Update (9/10 5:45pm): Looks like the promo has been removed Verizon’s website. We’re reaching out to Verizon to find out what is going on.

In light of Apple’s iPhone 6 announcements, we’re expecting a flurry of trade-in promos from carriers and trade-in services. We’ve already covered your best iPhone 6 trade-in options, but this Verizon promo stood out to us.

Verizon is promising a $200 gift card for any working iPhone 4/4s/5/5c/5s. Now, you can probably get a higher rate for all of the iPhone 5 models, but $200 for a 5-year old iPhone 4 is way above market value.

For example, Gazelle is currently offering $15 for a working Verizon 8GB iPhone 4 and $50 for a working AT&T 8GB iPhone 4. Amazon prices are better at ~$57 for similar configurations, but that’s still not close to the $200 Verizon is offering as part of this promo.

It’s not clear if it works on preorders or not, and other details remain scarce, so check back for the latest updates.
