Those looking to purchase an iPhone in the near future might want to make it a point to check out the prices at their local Target. 9to5Mac is reporting that the retailer is knocking $50 off both 4 and 4S models for all carriers.

This brings the iPhone 4S down to $150 — in line with discounts being offered by regional carriers, and the iPhone 4 down to just $50. And apparently, Target’s not the only chain dropping the prices on the popular handsets…

iLounge notes that RadioShack has just announced an identical sale, knocking $50 off of both iPhone 4 and 4S models. The discounts are good for 8GB and 16GB versions on all carriers, and require you to sign a new two-year contract.

Although it’s unclear how long Target’s sale will go on, RadioShack says that it plans to offer the discounts through the end of June. These kind of sales don’t come along very often, so it’s recommended that you jump on it while you can.

What do you think? Deal or no deal?

  • Deal. That’s a deal right there.

    LOL maybe if you’re hard up and can’t afford an iPhone but $50 off a phone that you end up being able to buy at least twice over during the 2 year contract is just a rip off but then it’s the same in the UK. Buying a phone in this way, heavily subsidised upfront but recouped over the 2 years is no better than getting a loan from a loan shark that charges you a crazy interest rate, good I guess if you can’t buy it sim free but you can get an iPhone 4 for like £200 here in England on a 12 month contract for like 25 quid a month so I don’t get why anybody would choose a 2 year contract anymore.

  • That is a deal, to bad I bought my 4s in October

    • in other words you would have waited 7 months just to save 50bucks? not me

  • Maybe they are dropping their 4S inventory to make room for the iPhone 5 or whatever the hell they are going to call it. That would be awesome if they went back to the original Summer release date. We can only dream…..
