Walmart Offers Discount on Apple’s New iPhone 5C

Walmart (WMT[1]) is offering discounts for those who pre-order Apple’s (AAPL[2]) upcoming smartphone—the iPhone 5C.

PC Mag reports[3] that Sprint and AT&T (T[4]) have announced that pre-orders for the phone will begin at 3 a.m. while Verizon (VZ[5]) and T-Mobile (TMUS[6]) will be taking pre-orders on Sept. 13. These will all be sold on Apple.com with the 16GB iPhone 5C selling for $99 and the 32GB one for $199 with two-year contracts.

Walmart is also selling the phones and they are offering a $20 discount for the 16GB and a $10 discount for the 32GB ones. The retailer will be taking in-store pre-orders as of Sept. 13 and you can pick them up on Sept. 20 or 21. Customers can also trade in their old phones to get the iPhone 5C at a further discount.

The iPhone 4S is now priced at $0.97 at Walmart and the iPhone 4 will be $0.10 and come with a $100 Walmart gift card.
