Without getting into a long-winded debate about the hardware and platform differences between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the main advantage Sony's console has over Microsoft's is that it's a $100 less expensive at $399 versus $499. Of course, the Xbox One comes with a second generation Kinect motion controller, so while the price difference isn't an arbitrary one, it's a forced purchase since you can't buy the console sans Kinect. That said, a temporary price drop just took away the PS4's cost advantage, at least in part. At present, both Best Buy and Walmart are selling the Xbox One on sale... Read more...
Microsoft nearly flipped the used games market upside down when it first began revealing details about its Xbox One console prior to launch, though in the end, the Redmond outfit listened to its customers and reversed course. As a result, not only is the used games market still thriving, it's expanding and drawing interest from new players, such as Walmart. Beginning March 26 (a week from today), you'll be able to bring your used games to Wally World and receive a credit that can be applied to anything sold at the store or Sam's Club. You can also use your credit for online purchases at either... Read more...
GoPhone, AT&T’s prepaid mobile service, was blessed with a new addition to the product family in the form of its first prepaid mobile hotspot and associated data-only service plans. The AT&T Unite mobile hotspot, a Netgear device, will be available starting on November 12th for $99.99. The plans to go with the Unite will be 250MB for $15 a week or 5GB of data for $50 a month, and the device features a 2.4-inch touchscreen display, up to 10 hours of battery life, and supports up to 10 WiFi devices simultaneously. You can also manage connected devices from the Unite including blocking... Read more...
Not feeling Apple's suggested pricing for its latest iPhones? If you can stomach a trip to Walmart, you'll be able to score the 5C for $79 (-$20 SRP) and the 5S for $189 (-$10 SRP). This pricing is of course made possible thanks to contracts; going with either Verizon, AT&T or Sprint, you'll be locked-in for 2 years. Already in a contract? You might be eligible for the same pricing to upgrade. If you're wanting to avoid contracts and don't mind going with an older model, Walmart will also soon be slashing the pricing of the iPhone 4S and 5 (non-C, non-S) by $100, putting them at $349 (we'd...

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...
