Still need to finish up your holiday shopping? Or maybe just buying a gift for yourself? Either way, it’s definitely been a good month to buy Apple(s aapl) products, with more discounts on iPhones and iPads than I can remember seeing in holiday’s past. And now you can add Target(s tgt) to the list, which is serving up some last-minute holiday savings.

Here’s a look at Target’s iPhone and iPad deals through December 24. Of course, those iPhone 5c and 5s prices will require you to sign a two-year contract.

Dec. 15 – 21

  • iPhone 5c, $50 plus a $50 Target gift card
  • iPhone 5s, $149.99
  • First-generation iPad mini, $299 plus a $30 Target gift card

Dec. 22 – 24

  • iPhone 5c, $30 plus a $30 Target gift card
  • iPhone 5s, $179.99 plus a $25 Target gift card
  • iPad Air, $479 plus a $20 Target gift card
  • First-generation iPad mini, $299 plus a $30 Target gift card

On top of these discounts, you can trade-in any working smartphone and get the value of your phone plus an additional $25 store credit toward the purchase of any contract phone through the month of December.

So far, I think the lowest iPhone prices I’ve seen are from Sam’s Club(s wmt), which is offering the iPhone 5s for $119 through January. But you need to have a membership in order to shop there. For everyone else, this is a pretty good deal. But keep in mind that Apple sales abound this season, so it pays to shop around.

  1. Can you please provide the source of the $479 ipad Air promotion as nothing is being advertised about it as of late Saturday at that I can find. Also, my local Target store Mgr doesn’t know anything about this. Thx!

  2. Don’t forget, if you have a Target RedCard you get 5% off everything at Target. A no-brainer if there ever was one. That drops the price of the iPad Air to $455 plus the $20 gift card — effectively 13% off for a recently released product that’s in high demand.
