Radio Shack is also joining the list of retailers who are selling the colorful plastic iPhone 5C for way below standard, contract price. Best Buy is offering the $50 price-tag until October 7th, Radio Shack is offering the iPhone 5C for $45 until November 2nd. Wal-Mart is offering a couple of sweet deals; the iPhone 5C for $45 and the biggest retailer will also buy iPhone 5S’ in working condition for up to, $300. This is a perfect alternative for customers who may not be so thrilled about the iPhone 5S, and their 14 day carrier guarantee has expired. Apple provides a 30 day guarantee for return or exchange of the product.

Apple has been encouraging the sales of the iPhone 5C. The Cupertino-based tech giant took San Francisco by storm – billboards, kiosks and even bus stops are adorned with colors variations of the iPhone 5C selection. While the iPhone 5S Gold can be sold on the eBay marketplace for up to $10,000, the iPhone 5C remains on the shelves, craving attention. The iPhone 5C resulted in the exact specs of the iPhone 5 except wrapped in color. This should be a benefit to customers, right? The iPhone 5 previously sold for $199.99, the iPhone 5C half of that. So, what has pushed customers away from this purchasing point?

Visiting the local Apple store in Westlake, Ohio provided information directly from the buyers who came out from the store. Carrie H. from Elyria stated, “When Apple announces a product, we wait. We so wait and we remain dedicated. Yet, here we are with the same product. Of course it’s going to bomb. We don’t want this company creating the same product! WWJD [what would Jobs do?] honestly?!”  Mentioning the iPhone 5C price drop did stop mom Laurie W. from Olmsted Township, from going into the store. “I was going to go in here and review the best deal for my daughter, these iPhones are too expensive and don’t seem to be a good deal anymore. Where was that special at again?” Wal-Mart and Radio Shack are offering the plastic wonder for $45 and Best Buy for $50, when advised, Laurie stated she would head there.

The iPhone 5C still packs a pretty punch, it is equipped with the powerful A6 chip, the 4-inch Retina display is a beautiful resolution of 1136 x 640. The 8-megapixel iSight camera provides the panorama and face detection features. It offers fantastic benefits such as AirPlay mirroring to the Apple TV and free apps from Apple like iPhoto, iMovie and Pages. Many Apple fans are lukewarm on the reception of the phone, hopefully the price decrease brings more buyers to relieve inventory from retailers.

The iPhone 5S Gold has been a near impossible mission for purchase. The Silver and Space Gray are delayed by two weeks for delivery. Many are now starting to experience issues with the TouchID and are grumbling about returning it. With Wal-Mart’s buyout program of a working iPhone 5S, it will be interesting to inquire on the level of returns and their accompanying reasons for the return process. Apple touted over 9 million devices were sold during the opening weekend of the iPhone 5S/iPhone 5C.  The company is unlikely to share the specific breakdown or any level of returns at this point.

If customers are looking for a buy this weekend and for the next month, visit Best Buy for their $50 special  of the iPhone 5C. Radio Shack and Wal-Mart are touting the best deals at $45 for the iPhone 5C. No word has been received from Apple regarding their authorized retailers dropping the price by over $50 within its first few weeks of release. This is truly a history-shifting moment for Apple, there has never been a severe price drop within the first few weeks of release on an iPhone model. Only time will tell and determine if this will strike the brand of Apple, and the level of trust from their buyers regarding innovation and creation.
