Today has been a good day for Apple customers. First Apple reduced the price on refurbished iPads, now Best Buy will be running a $50 discount on the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5 for the next four weeks. The discount will go into effect on Sunday and will be valid on any device purchased with a new two-year contract through Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T.
This discount could signify that a new iPhone isn't too far off in the future as Apple devices usually only get discounted ahead of new model launches. It could also be to help drive sales. After all, the iPhone 5 has been out since September of last year and it has to compete with the newly released Galaxy S4 and HTC One.
Best Buy is also offering some short-term Memorial Day discounts. From May 26 to June 1, the Galaxy S3 will be available for $49, the HTC Droid DNA will be available for $49, and the HTC One X will be available for free. All of these require their respective carriers and a new two-year contract.
