Best Buy (s bby) has a pretty spectacular deal on iPhones (s aapl) this weekend: It is offering buy-one-get-one-free pricing on the 2010 32 GB iPhone 4, on either Sprint (s s) or AT&T (s t) with a new two-year contract activation. It is the same deal that was offered last weekend, keen observers will note, and it is back for Friday and Saturday only.
The deal is only available in-store, and it is last year’s model, not the current iPhone 4S, but this is still a great deal for couples or just two friends looking to switch to iPhones or upgrade from older versions, since Best Buy still lists the 32 GB version of the iPhone 4 for $199 on contract. The price, $200, is the same as what you would pay for two 8 GB iPhone 4 devices under Apple’s current pricing scheme.
About the only significant feature you will be missing is Siri, since the camera and processor improvements of the 4S are good, too, but likely won’t make too much of a difference for the average user. This is probably a way for Best Buy to clear out existing stock, so expect supplies to be limited.
