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.
Earlier 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.
