Good news for all the last-minute holiday shoppers out there: Walmart(s wmt) is planning to offer a big sale on Apple’s(s aapl) latest iPhones, along with a few other Apple products, starting Friday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The iPhones are the best part of the sale. You’ll be able to pick up a new iPhone 5c with a two-year contract from AT&T(s t) or Verizon(s vz) for just $27, down from its original $99 on-contract price. The iPhone 5s will see a discount as well, available for $127 with a two-year contract, down from $199. There’s no word on Sprint(s s) or T-Mobile(s tmus) devices, so it looks like those users will be out of luck.

You can also pick up an original iPad mini for the same $299 as usual, but it’ll come with a $50 gift card (the report doesn’t say whether the gift card will be for Apple or for Walmart, though I imagine it’s the latter). And $30 iTunes gift cards will be on sale for $25.

Though $27 for an iPhone 5c is a great deal, $127 for an iPhone 5s is arguably the better one. After all, Walmart already sells the iPhone 5c for $45 with a contract, whereas the iPhone 5s has remained pretty firm at $199.

The sale starts at 8AM Friday and prices will remain in effect through December 24 or while supplies last.

  1. Question. Is there an iPhone 5? Bought an Iphone at Walmart — Not 5c, but 5. Thought it was the 5s, but now wondering if in fact it really is since it doesn’t have an “s” at the end.
