RadioShack has just contacted us via email to announce that they will be offering the iPhone 3GS free with $50 instant savings. This deal comes right after Best Buy offered a similar deal for a one day sales event back on the 22nd of August. RadioShack will also offer the same $50 savings on the iPhone 4 to bring the 16GB version to $149.99 and 32GB to $249.99 with 2-year contract. This deal only lasts from August 27th to September 3rd 2011. Customers can also save up to $150 by trading in their old iPhone 3GS 16 or 32GB.
Consumers call also take advantage of RadioShack’s “Trade & Save” program, a trade in credit for older iPhone 3GS models via gift cards, for additional savings. While RadioShack does not sell Verizon products, yet, AT&T existing and prospective customers can enjoy the good times.
