iPhone 5c to cost $79 through Target, excluding REDcard scheme
Target will be price-matching Walmart for the 16GB iPhone 5c at the smartphone's launch tomorrow. Walmart's already-discounted price of $79 for the iPhone 5c, when bought with a two-year contract, will be equaled by Target. Participants of Target's REDcard scheme will be able to get an extra 5-percent off, making the iPhone 5c cost $75.05.
While the discounts will apply to the 16GB model, 9to5mac notes that Target is not going to discount the 32GB iPhone 5c, which will have the same $199 price as Walmart, aside from the REDcard scheme. Pre-orders for the iPhone 5c have opened today through Target Mobile centers.
Target will also be selling the iPhone 5s in-store tomorrow, but will not be lowering the 16GB version's $199 price to Walmart's $189. If Target's REDcard is applied to the iPhone 5s the price does reduce down to $189.
