If you’re interested in acquiring an iPhone 4 — and so far have managed to resist buying one — then RadioShack’s current sale should be just the thing to win you over. From now until December 11, RadioShack is offering the iPhone 4 for $50 cheaper than its standard price for new AT&T customers and for current customers who are eligible for an upgrade. That means $150 for the 16GB model and $250 for the 32GB model. The $50 discount also applies to other iPhone models offered by RadioShack, including the 3GS.
Even more incredibly, RadioShack is offering bigger iPhone 4 discounts through its trade and save program. Customers who bring in a functioning iPhone 3G with an intact screen will get receive a $75 credit; customers who swap a 3GS can take off $125.
The trade-in prices come in addition to the original $50 discount, meaning that customers who trade in a 3GS (a $125 credit) will be able to buy a 16GB iPhone 4 for an astounding price of $25 (yes, $25) or a 32GB model for $125. The 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 models normally sell for $199.99 and $299.99, respectively, with new AT&T two-year contacts.
The sale is an effort to raise awareness of RadioShack’s sometimes overlooked wireless business by attracting holiday shoppers who might want to spoil themselves with a new iPhone 4.
If this sounds like the perfect excuse to finally cave and get an iPhone 4, you’ll have to leave the house to do it: the deal is only offered through RadioShack’s brick and mortar stores — not online. RadioShack is offering a way for potential customers to check their upgrade eligibility through its website.
Again, we should emphasize that sale prices only apply to new AT&T customers or to those with an AT&T contract who are eligible for an upgrade.
