Target offers last-minute iPhone and iPad deals for holiday shoppers

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.



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!

I received an email about it from Target’s PR. But it looks like the deal is live on Target’s site now.


You can use your target red card on your target mobile purchase as well. So yes, you can use it to buy your iPhone when you renew or sign a new two year agreement.


Random question here. On the iPhone and iPad discounting do you think the store or Apple is eating the discount?

Alex Colon

I think it’s the store. Especially when it’s in-store gift cards given as part of the deal.

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.


Don’t forget your credit card information will get stolen, so you’ll be purchasing a whole lot more than you bargained for!
