Tables have yet to be set and turkeys haven’t even made their way to grocery store shelves, but Sam’s Club is betting Americans will want to rush over to the warehouse store for deep discounts on Apple’s iPhone 6S.
On Nov. 14, the Sam’s Club chain is offering customers a $200 Sam’s Club gift card with activation of an iPhone 6S under an installment payment plan with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. Alternatively shoppers can go with a two-year contract through Sprint, Verizon Wireless or U.S. Cellular, which comes with a $100 savings over standard contract pricing. Under the subsidized plans, prices for the iPhone 6S start at $99 for the 16GB model, $199 for 64GB, and $299 for the 128GB version. Tack on $100 for the 6S Plus with 5.5-inch display. The iPhone deals are only available in-store.
“We’re excited to kick off holiday shopping for our members with our lowest-prices-of-the-season event on Saturday, Nov. 14,” Rosalind Brewer, president and CEO of Sam’s Club, said in a statement. “Our shoppers can feel confident they are getting a great deal on many top gifts, and early enough to plan the rest of their holiday budget.”
In addition to iPhone deals, Sam’s Club is also knocking $150 off the 64GB iPad Air 2's price. The 128GB version is also receiving the same discount -- but it's only available online.
If iPhones aren’t your cup of tea, the warehouse retailer is also offering big deals for customers who want to purchase a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Note 5. Shoppers who purchase the devices under installment plans will receive a $300 gift card. Two-year contract customers can purchase the smartphones for 96 cents.
Shoppers can take advantage of some of these offers online starting at 7 a.m. at Sam’s Club retailers. Details on all Black Friday deals are expected to be revealed at a later date.
