iPhone 5S Walmart Deals Compared To Best Buy, Amazon Release Date Prices

iPhone 5S Walmart Deals Compared To Best Buy, Amazon Release Date Prices

The iPhone 5S Walmart deal sounds good, but how does it compare to the Best Buy and Amazon iPhone 5S pricing?

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the iPhone 5S pre-order date does not exist because Apple didn’t set one. You will be forced to wait in line to get your grubby mitts on the Apple iPhone 5S.

The iPhone 5S Walmart deal is being offered for the iPhone 5S 16GB, lowering the iPhone 5S price from $199 down to $189 with a two year contract. The iPhone 5C pre-order deal at Walmart will net you the 16GB iPhone 5C for $99. But I’d suggest snagging an original iPhone 5 for $79, which is quite a good deal since the iPhone 5C and 5 are mostly the same phone. You should try checking out our full iPhone 5S comparison article, but the short version is that the iPhone 5C supports extra LTE networks globally and Bluetooth 4.0.

The iPhone 5S Best Buy price deal offers up to half off an iPhone 5S for trading your old iPhone 5. Trading in the iPhone 4S or 4 nets you $100, but that might not be the best deal since we’ve seen the iPhone 4S going for around $200. The “half off” iPhone 5S price deal is also based upon the two year contract pricing, not the iPhone 5S retail pricing. The old iPhone 5 can also be sold for around $300.

There are multiple iPhone 5S shopping strategies. The iPhone 5S retail price without contract is a whopping $650, so if your old iPhone 5 could knock down the price to $350. Another option is to pay your carrier’s early termination fee so you can get a iPhone 5s for $200. Assuming your early termination fee is less than $300 you’d still save money. Companies like Verizon also have an upgrade ineligibility discount of $100 if you’re stuck inside a contract currently and it’s not feasible to cancel.

An iPhone 5S trade-in program readies you for the eventual iPhone 5S release date by offering Apple store credit. You can also sell your older iPhone 5, 4S, or 4 to Walmart, Best Buy, USell, Amazon, and Gazelle:
