Apple's yearly release cycle makes it expensive to always have the latest and greatest iOS smartphone available when you're trying to juggle a two-year service agreement, but you're not totally out of luck. If you're tempted to upgrade to the iPhone 5S because of its 64-bit A7 processor but are stuck with an iPhone 5, you can go the usual routes -- eBay and/or Craigslist -- or trade it in at Walmart. Wally World's trade-in program offers an immediate credit from $50 to $300 for more than 100 smartphones, with the iPhone 5 eligible for the $300 credit. The Samsung Galaxy SIII fetches $175, while... Read more...
If you like living on the bleeding edge of technology, now is a terrible time to pick up an iPhone or iPad device. Apple has begun inviting members of the press to its headquarters on September 10, presumably to announce the next iPhone, and you have to think a tablet refresh can't be far behind. So, if you snatch up an iPhone 5 today, you'll kick yourself next week for not having waited. The same doesn't apply if you could care less about owning the latest and greatest, and are more concerned with scoring a deal. If that's what floats your boat, you can head over to Walmart and pick up a discounted... Read more...
The trade-in industry is exploding, spearheaded by annual renewals of hot products (iPhone, Galaxy S, etc.) that folks just aren't interested in waiting for. So, in order to get the hottest, latest, and greatest right away, many have turned to trading in older gadgets in order to cut into the price of a new one. This isn't a new concept in the video game industry; GameStop and other retailers have accepted trades on older games for years, and even re-sell those older games to those who are looking for a cheaper fix. But now, Walmart is looking to boost interest in its electronics department. After... Read more...
When it comes to Apple products, discounts are few and far between. The company just doesn't offer up coupons and price slashings on any sort of regular basis, and in fact, most of the retailers certified to sell genuine Apple products don't offer any discounts, either. Walmart has typically shaved a few dollars from iPod and iPhone products, but not much else. Unless, of course, a new product is en route. There has been no formal indication from Apple that a next-generation iPhone is on the way, but Walmart has just taken the axe to the MSRP on its iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 handsets. The iPhone 5...

Wondering if tablets have officially become a mainstream commodity? Well, here's your answer: they're flooding Walmart. While iPads and select Android tablets have been around on Walmart shelves for a bit, you know these things are getting popular once a brand like Hisense gets approved. It's spectacularly diffcult to convince Walmart to give you shelf space, and somehow, Hisense has managed to do just that. Hisense today entered the tablet marketplace with the Sero 7 Series. The Hisense Sero 7 PRO ($149) and the Sero 7 LT ($99) are available in Walmart stores and on Walmart.com starting today,... Read more...
Walmart just undercut the competition by announcing that Samsung's Galaxy S4 is available to pre-order in more than 3,500 retail locations nationwide and online starting at $168 with a two-year service agreement from AT&T. Barring any special promotions, that's 16 percent cheaper than the standard $200 subsidized price most other wireless carriers will charge. You can also activate service with T-Mobile or Sprint, according to Walmart's press release. To do so, you need to purchase a $25 pre-order card, which comes with a free $4.99 VUDU credit, and then wait for a Walmart employee to call... Read more...
Walmart hopes to put the hurt on Amazon by taking a page from its online rival and using in-store lockers to holder items ordered on the Internet. In doing so, customers will be able to get their hands on their purchased goods much faster than waiting for delivery. The mega chain said it will put lockers in about a dozen U.S. stores this summer to hold goods until customers pick them up at their convenience, Reuters reports. It's the same thing Amazon has been experimenting with since 2011, with lockers installed in convenience stores, drug stores, and some Staples and RadioShack locations. Image... Read more...
Rumors are boiling over regarding the potential for a low-end iPhone before the end of the year, but one has to wonder: does Apple really need a low-end iPhone? Already, Apple is penetrating new markets by getting the iPhone 4 onto prepaid carriers like Cricket, and now, Walmart + Straight Talk have announced that the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 will soon be available. Starting on January 11, 2013 in more than 2,000 Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com, customers now have access to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 on Straight Talk's $45 no contract unlimited talk, text and data plan. To make this offer... Read more...
If you're looking for a last minute Christmas gift, head on over to your local Wallyworld (if you can stand the crowd this time of year) and browse the Apple products, you might be surprised at what you find. Namely, Walmart is selling the iPhone 5 for just $127 in-store with a two-year service agreement to AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. The iPhone 5 normally sells for $187 at Walmart, and $200 on Apple's website, so this is a fantastic deal for a high-end smartphone. But is also an indication that Android has Apple in a headlock? It's hard to tell. Under normal circumstances, discounts this deep... Read more...
Walmart may be able to save you a few bucks this holiday shopping season, provided you're in the market for Apple gear. We're not talking about ancient devices, either. One of the discounted items up for grabs is the 16GB iPhone 5, which Wally World is selling for $127, a fair amount cheaper than its usual selling price of $199. The 16GB iPhone 4S has also been marked down and is selling for $89.97, representing a $47 savings. Keep in mind these are subsidized prices that require a two-year service contract with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. For those of you jonesing for an iPad, Walmart reduced... Read more...
I don't mind the madness that is Black Friday, I really don't. You won't catch me camping out in front of Best Buy or any other store for hours or days on end, but you might spot me walking the aisles after the doors open, in part because the spectacle is a sight to behold. Last night, for example, I took my 16-year-old stepdaughter shopping at the mall. She had never experienced Black Friday and wanted to see the commotion first-hand. Feeling good from the butt-kicking the Patriots put on the Jets, I thought, 'What the hell, let's do this.' And so we did. She snagged some good deals too, stocking... Read more...
The next YouTube video that's likely to go viral is that of Walmart employees tossing around iPads in the warehouse of a Kentucky store. Apple iPad devices are shown being thrown like several feet in the air like frisbees not always getting caught. In one instance, an employee purposely slams a boxed iPad to the concrete floor and says, "Oh wow, sorry about that iPad. I hope nobody buys that." Throughout the 48-second video, the employees are heard laughing and making sarcastic comments. At the beginning of the video, the narrator sets the stage by saying, "Alright, this is why you don't buy an... Read more...
Boxee TV, the current evolution of the intriguing Boxee Box set-top box, looks like a real contender in the anything-but-traditional-pay-TV media consumption market. The box is $99 and offers Internet streaming and built-in apps including Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, Vimeo, and Pandora (with more to come including Spotify, TED, and MLB.TV) in addition to dual tuners for OTA signals and basic cable, and $14.99-per-month unlimited DVR capabilities. The product itself is compelling, but the Boxee folks landed a huge retail ally: Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, which will be selling Boxee TVs... Read more...
If you’re planning to pick up a Kindle Fire at Walmart, you’d better hurry. The retail giant won’t be bringing in any new shipments of Kindles, likely because it sees Amazon as encroaching on its digital retail space. The do-not-carry list includes all Kindles, including the humble e-readers. Similar e-readers and tablets, including the iPad and Nook, aren’t expected to be pulled. Walmart may be distancing itself from a device that lets consumers shop Amazon’s website online, or it may be seeing consumer interest in other devices. Or both. In any event, Walmart... Read more...
