Future Shop and Best Buy have dropped the price of the iPhone 5 on a three year term (new activations) from $179 to $149, a $30 savings. The new price is available from select carriers such as Rogers, TELUS and Bell for the 16GB model in either black or white. It doesn’t appear to be a temporary sale, but a permanent price drop. We expect carriers to follow suit shortly to match this.
If you’re into subsidized iPhones and contracts, this might be just the time to jump on the iPhone 5. The next generation iPhone 5S is expected to launch this fall (with a similar design), so these price drops aren’t really unexpected.
Let us know if you’re going to jump on this!
