Those looking to turn a profit from trading in their old iPhones and getting one of the newly released models can now easily achieve their goals by getting their brand new iPhone 5C from retailers such as Radio Shack and Walmart, both of which have dropped prices to under $50.
As NASDAQ reports, those who want to buy an iPhone 5C straight from Apple would have to bear a cost of $549 without wireless contract and $99 with a two-year agreement. Those that head to their local Radio Shack to make the purchase might still have encounter the same $99 upfront cost with two-year contract, but they also get a $50 gift card that can be put towards the price. Walmart simply cut their already low price of $79 down to $45. Walmart representatives report that this will be the price for the remainder of the holiday season.
It was only last month that Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced these new seventh-generation iPhones. The 5S is the high-end model, coming complete with controversial fingerprint scanner and A7 chip. The 5C is the cheaper of the two and is made of plastic. Those who sell their old iPhone 4S and buy a new iPhone 5C, taking advantage of the lower price offered by one of the two retailers that dropped the price, can stand to profit as much as $150.
