Walmart Will Start Selling The iPhone 5c For $27 (With A 2-Year Contract) On Friday

So bright.

So bright.

Wait… this Friday isn’t even the day after Thanksgiving and already I’m sensing hordes of people seeking a big discount crashing through the doors at Walmart. And I know I didn’t get that time machine working yet, so the fact that Walmart is selling the iPhone 5c for $27 on Friday must be some kind of crazy freak sale.

Crazy like a fox, perhaps, but Walmart is offering the 5c for a huge discount down from $99 on Friday only. You’ll have to also sign up for a two-year contract with a phone carrier but that’s still a pretty attractive price for a phone that was just released three months ago.

It could be that the 5c just isn’t selling that well — maybe Apple customers like it shinier metal sibling the 5s more, who knows. But Walmart has been hacking at the price of the phone since it started selling it and this would appear to be the lowest it can go. Or can it go even lower? Doing the price limbo could be fun.

Other Apple dingles and dangles will also be discounted, adds the L.A. Times: The also newish 5s will be priced at $127 with a two-year contract, a discount from its usual $199; the 16 GB iPad mini will still cost you $299 but will come with a $50 gift card and then there will be $30 Apple iTunes cards fro $25.

The sale starts at 8 a.m. local time and will involve products that aren’t Apple as well, with prices in effect through Dec. 24 or until anything sells out.

    Dammit, I hate Wally World, but I hate Verizon’s price gouging even more. I may have to try to pick one of these up.

    Target is selling the 5c for $50 and you get a free $50 giftcard making it free. As a bonus, you don’t have to go to Walmart.

      Thanks, but I really want the 5s with the fingerprint scanner. We’ve been using those on laptops for ages, I can’t believe it took this long for voice or biometric recognition to make it to mobile devices.

    I’ve never actually seen a 5c in the wild. I don’t know a single person who bought one.
