Many of the national carriers are heavily discounting their phones to get ready for new product launches this fall. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is no different in this respect, except you have to be in “the know”, in order to get the discount. Their stores have been authorized to match the price breaks offered by all of the major competition, so if you have a desire for a new iPhone, and haven’t made up your mind to stick it out for the iPhone 5, which will be released next month, according to sources, then now is your chance to save.
According to Angela Moscaritolo, of pcmag.com, the discounts are available on request, and can add up to some good savings. The discounts for iPhone 4s and iPhone 4 models are set at $49.01, which knocks more than 10% off the price of the most expensive model.
Pricing with the discounts is as follows:
64GB model: $349.99
32GB model: $249.99
16GB model: $149.99
iPhone 4: $49.99
Remember, you must specifically ask for these discounts, as they are not openly offered. One other thing to keep in mind, is that if you have your heart set on the latest version of the iPhone, then you need to wait for a month or so, as Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been rumored to be releasing it at the end of September.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) also unveiled its back to school discounts, which include a $100 gift card to spend on apps after purchasing a qualifying Mac. This offer is good through Sept. 21. You can also get a $50 discount off the $530 price tag of a new iPad at the Amazon Marketplace, if you’re willing to accept a refurbished model.
There is a lot of excitement in the world of Apple these days, and each day we hear more and more about the new iPhone 5 , which is rumored to be available by the end of next month. Apple continues to impress with some of the coolest gadgets in the tech market today, and I look forward to seeing what they will do next.
