Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) is offering the best deal on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus since Black Friday. In an attempt to attract customers after the Thanksgiving weekend, Walmart is selling the iPhone 6 for just $129, a flat $50 drop from its usual price of $179. That’s a huge price cut for a blockbuster smartphone that begins at $199 on-contract.
