If you’re looking for a brand-new, off-contract iPhone 5s, Virgin Mobile is selling them for dirt cheap, starting at $440 for the 16GB version. Spotted by Dealnews, this Virgin Mobile deal is the best around right now, beating any other off-contract deal by at least $110.
If you need more storage than just 16GB, Virgin Mobile also has the 32GB and 64GB models for $520 and $600, respectively. This is a healthy 20% off from the normal retail price. Usually, you’d pay $650 for the 16GB version, but you can get the 64GB model for less than that.
Virgin Mobile might not be the biggest carrier around, and its coverage might not be as good as Verizon’s, but if you’re looking for cheap carrier that you can use just for the basics that you need, Virgin Mobile isn’t too bad. You’ll have better luck using them in bigger cities if you live in an urban area, but folks living out in the suburbs or in the country might have a harder time getting a signal, depending on where you’re located.
Still, you certainly can’t complain about scoring an iPhone 5s off-contract for as low as $440, which is an absolute steal at over $200 off from the retail price. We’ve seen a few sales already this year from other retailers for on-contract iPhone 5s models. Best Buy had the flagship device on sale for $125 back in January, and Walmart recently bumped down the price to $119 earlier this month.
We’ve actually seen more iPad deals in 2014, and it’s perhaps that most deals we’ve seen in quite a while, but it seems retailers are willing to do anything to get your business, even if it means discounting an iPad by $100, which Walmart did last month with the iPad 2.
2014 looks to be the year of Apple sales galore at various retail locations and we’re only a few months into the new year, which means we should be seeing a plethora of deals coming are way later this year.
