Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) & Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY)
Apple’s iPhone 6s is on sale for just $1.
Customers who shop at Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY) stores or on the retail company’s online marketplace will find that it’s selling the 16GB iPhone 6s for just $1. The deal is a noteworthy discount from the $200 price tag normally affixed to Apple’s smartphone, according to fortune
Like other deals, however, there are some caveats. For one, the offer only applies to Verizon (VZ) and Sprint (S) versions of Apple’s smartphone, leaving AT&T (T) customers out of luck. In addition, the deal is offered only on the 16GB iPhone 6s model. All other iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus models are regularly priced.
According to a Best Buy spokeswoman, customers better move fast: The deal is only good through Sunday.
For Best Buy, offering the iPhone 6s for $1 is part of the company’s ongoing battle with other retailers to attract late shoppers. As Christmas quickly approaches, retailers both online and off are offering a wide range of deals to attract customers to their stores. Dropping the price on an Apple product so substantially is one way to do it. Fortune Report
