Walmart Black Friday 2013 Ad Includes Incredible iPhone 5s Deal
The Walmart Black Friday 2013 ad includes a great iPhone 5s deal and will actually pay shoppers to buy an iPhone 5c on a two-year contract with Verizon or AT&T.
Apple Black Friday deals are the highlight of many retailer ads this year and Walmart is going big with the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in a deal that might be worth getting in line for.
The Walmart Black Friday 2013 ad arrived online yesterday showing off a iPad mini deal that shoppers cannot pass up thanks to the $100 gift card which effectively cuts the price to $199 and the promise that it will be in stock for one hour or delivered to you by Christmas at the Black Friday price. This guarantee takes the worry out of waiting in line for nothing, and shows that the Walmart Black Friday 2013 plans are bigger than in year’s past.
Walmart opens at 6PM on Thanksgiving Day for Black Friday, but the iPhone 5s Black Friday deal doesn’t start until 8 AM on Black Friday proper. If Walmart remains open overnight it would not be a surprise to see people lined up for this deal on Thanksgiving Day.
Not all Walmart Black Friday 2013 deals include the guarantee, which is the case with these incredible iPhone deals. Walmart is cutting the price of the iPhone 5c dramatically and with the gift card bonus the iPhone 5s is just over $100 on a two-year contract.
All of these Walmart Black Friday 2013 iPhone deals are limited to the stock on hand and are only available on Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile and Sprint shoppers are out of luck, and shouldn’t bother waiting in line.
The iPhone 5s Black Friday deal at Walmart is only $10 off the retail price of a new iPhone 5s, but it includes a $75 Walmart gift card which effectively drops the price to $114. That’s $86 less than you would pay on a regular day at a carrier or Apple. You will need to sign an agreement and quantities will be limited, so be prepared to arrive early. This looks like it is only good on the 16GB version and will cover all colors, even though a gold iPhone 5s is still tough to find.
The iPhone 5s features a 4-inch Retina display, Touch ID fingerprint reader, 8MP camera, Apple A7 processor and LTE connectivity. Read our iPhone 5s review for more.

The iPhone 5c Black Friday deal is even better. Walmart drops the price to $48 on contract, which pairs up with a $75 gift card to basically pay you to take the iPhone 5c. After taxes you may almost break even, but that’s still a good deal if you want this colorful iPhone with older internals.
The iPhone 5c comes with an Apple A6 processor, 4-inch Retina Display and 8MP camera. There is no Touch ID and some iOS 7 camera features like Slo Mo and Burst mode are not available.
Target is offering the iPhone 5s for $179 with a $30 gift card, which is the only other leaked iPhone 5s deal worth mention at this time. It’s not clear if Apple and carriers will respond with deeper discounts on iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Black Friday deals.

This is an incredible deal, but I bet, as you suggested, that gold models would be tough to find. My guess is they would be mostly unloading silver and space grey inventory at Black Friday. With these discounts it’s further incentives to get the 5s over the 5c!

is this deal applicable for upgrade or is it for a new line? The T&C does not clearly indicate this

Alot of people don’t like stores opening on Turkey Day but I work Black Friday and never ever got to take advantage of these deals. SInce they were always gone by 5pm Friday. Unfortunately I am in the market for an iphone 5s and Can’t get to walmart till 2pm this year. I guess I am out of luck again. Going to Walmart at 6pm Thursday, I wish the deal was for Thursday.

Is there a discount on the iphone 5c if you already have a plan and wanted to buy one?

Hi…Use your gift card for a completely other product….maybe buy clothes and then return them and get cash.I do not think they will let you use it to buy the cell phone. So buy something else if you don’t need to buy accessories for your I phone. I also think you can use lay away and get the black friday deals…. and, or you can order on line and they will give you the same price. They talk about locking in prices in many different articles. I would call and request to speak to a manager in the cell phone department and ask them the question about the PLAN. Ask them if you already have a plan can you buy the Iphone and get the same deal. I do not think so.

This Walmart deal on Iphone 5c was a scam in my area!! Went to 3 different walmarts and none sold iphones, then went to a 4th and they said they had them but could not sell due to the “system” being down!!!
