Anyone who has postponed buying an iPhone 5s now has a sweet deal to consider from RadioShack. Starting on Friday, stores will offer Apple's latest iPhone with 16GB of storage for just $99.99. Of course, in order to qualify for this subsidized sale price a two-year service agreement must be initiated with a wireless carrier.
iPhone 5s buyers can choose between AT&T, Sprint or Verizon to take advantage of the deal. Not only is RadioShack offering 50 percent off, but anyone upgrading can trade in a used smartphone for instant store credit. Depending on the appraisal, owners of the 16GB iPhone 4s can get up to $100 and the 16GB iPhone 5 can be traded in for up to $175.
This means that grabbing the discounted iPhone 5s now with the right trade-in could even leave extra store credit for a case or accessories. It's not clear how long the sale price will be in effect, however Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 later this summer. With RadioShack taking the lead, expect other retailers to reduce iPhone 5s pricing as the iPhone 6 launch date approaches.
The iPhone 5s first arrived in September of last year in gold, silver, and space gray. Check out the latest iPhone deals directly from RadioShack.
