Best Buy and Walmart are dueling over low prices for the new Apple iPhone 5c.
Best Buy is offering
a $50 gift card for the iPhone 5c, which lowers the price to $50. The deal is good with a 2-year contract. This was $29 lower than the Walmart offer
of $79. However, ABC News reports
that Walmart has now dropped its offer to $45 for the iPhone 5c.
Best Buy's deal is available in-store or online for store pickup only and runs through 10-7-13. If you purchase the iPhone 5c in a Best Buy store, Best Buy says you will be able to apply the $50 gift card towards the smartphone. If you use the online for store pickup option you will only be able to use the gift card for a future purchase. You can find the details here
ABC News says
Walmart's iPhone 5c offer will remain in place at $45 throughout the holiday season.
