This new iPhone 5s deal is perhaps the best we’ll see for a long time and it’s not alone with a $100 off Galaxy Note 3 deal as well as LG G2, Moto X, and Galaxy S4 deals that cut the prices on pretty much any smartphone Best Buy sells.
The catch is that these offers are only available to users who sign a new contract, so users will need to switch carriers or add a new line to get the deal. If you want to upgrade your current line Best Buy will charge the standard price for these phones.
Unlike previous offers, there is no need to trade in an old phone to score $100 off the iPhone 5s, which makes this an incredible offer. Users can still sell their current iPhone to a service like Gazelle or NextWorth and earn enough cash to cover the upgrade with money left over for a great iPhone 5s case and credit to buy a new charger or iOS 7 apps.
This iPhone 5s deal is only valid on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, as T-Mobile is no longer offering contracts on service which are where Best Buy makes money from deals like this. The iPhone 5s deal at Best Buy does require a two-year contract, which is to be expected from any deep discount on a new phone.
Users can pick up the 16GB iPhone 5s for $99 or upgrade to the 32GB iPhone 5s for $199 and the 64GB for $299. All thing considered this deal cuts $100 off the price of a month old iPhone without the need to trade in an old phone or jump through hoops. It is the fastest discount we’ve seen on a new iPhone flagship model, and underlines the reason to buy the iPhone 5s instead of the iPhone 5c, which is now free with this deal, but still not a better deal for the user.
The hardest part about getting this iPhone 5s deal at Best Buy is finding an iPhone 5s in stock to purchase. Best Buy offers many of these smartphone deals online, but not the iPhone. Shoppers can use the Best Buy website or app to locate one in stock at a local Best Buy. The closest Best Buy location with an iPhone 5s in stock is 45 minutes away, but that is a small price to pay for saving $100. Users cannot reserve the iPhone 5s online, so it is worth calling to see if the store will set one aside for you.
The deals also extend to the best Android smartphones on the market, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Moto X, Galaxy S4, LG G2 and many others. Most of these deals are available online. Here’s a rundown of the incredible Android deals Best Buy is offering.
- Galaxy Note 3 – $199
- LG G2 – $99
- Galaxy S4 -$99
- Moto X – $99
It would be better if these deals applied to current subscribers, but coverage between AT&T and Verizon is close enough that it is finally worth comparing the carriers before signing a new two year contract.
