iPhone 5Cs For Under $50

iphone5cLooking to buy a new iPhone 5C? Don’t go to Apple or your wireless carrier right away. There are good deals to be had from big box retailers. Three different retailers are running promotions on the new phones and you can get them for as low at $45.

The new colorful iPhones, which Apple is selling for $99 with a two-year contract, is available from Best Buy for $99 (with a contract). In addition, it comes a free $50 gift certificate until the end of today. Radio Shack has also followed suit. Radio Shack is also offering a $50 gift certificate to customers that purchase a $99 phone with a contract.

Wal-Mart has the best offer. The chain store is reportedly selling the devices for $45 with a two-year contract. At first this was a sale price, but now that price point is expected to remain permanent.
