WalMart iPhone: Now Only $97: Sale With No End Date
WalMart is Selling the iPhone 3GS 16GB Black Model For Only $97 With a 2-Year Contract
Wal-Mart has slashed the price on the iPhone 3GS 16GB black model by $100 to just $97 with a two-year contract. This sale has no end date to it and at the moment is not a limited time offer.
Although WalMart has long been known to be competitive in its prices and its iPhone was already $2 cheaper than Apple and AT&T, this price slash is adding fuel to the fire that Apple is getting ready to launch their next iPhone.
When Apple released the iPhone 3GS, WalMart was the first to reduce the price of the first model of the iPhone to just $99, and Steve Jobs is scheduled to speak at the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 7, which is where he has unveiled new versions of the iPhones before according to the WSJ.
In a statement by Mehrdad Akbar, the senior director for wireless at WalMart, he said:
As it is our commitment to always lead on price, we are going to reduce the price on this most popular smartphone so our customers can realize these new saving as soon as possible.”
This statement seems to imply that Apple is going to drop its price on the iPhone 3GS as well to make way for the new model. Apple has not released a statement in regards to WalMart's price drop at this time.
