Ready to upgrade to that new iPhone 5S that will be hitting the market in a few days? If you want to get it for the lowest price possible, you should buy it from Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is known for offering low prices to their customers, but usually these prices are reflected in price drops that go into affect after a product has been available for a while.
Wal-Mart announced that they will be offering the new iPhone 5S for $189 on its release date, September 20. That price is $10 cheaper than what you will find in other stores. Will this discounted price be enough to persuade shoppers to buy the phone from Wal-Mart? Most people won't expect to find a newly released iPhone at a discounted price, but Wal-Mart customers should be used to getting their items cheaper.
No other store is offering the iPhone at this discounted price, but getting the discount does have a requirement. You have to sign up for a 2-year agreement. This is standard with most phone upgrades and like other smartphones, the new iPhone 5 you will have to have a data plan.
If you want to get an even better price on the new iPhone consider trading in your old one. Wal-Mart will take your old phone and give you a credit towards the purchase of a new one.
The iPhone 5S seems to have a pretty big fan following but there are also many people who do not think it is worth the money. For some, there just aren't enough changes and upgrades to make it worth the cost. Those who do plan to buy the new smartphone are likely to see another iPhone hit the market again shortly.
