Apple iPhone 5C seems to be having some trouble setting into the U.S. market. Looks like this is serious as retailers are ready to offer iPhone 5C for free on Black Friday 2013.The iPhone 5C was offered at the discount right at launch. Now the price of the iPhone 5C is down to only $45 instead of the $99 list price. Of course we talk carrier contract deals here. As reported, Walmart and RadioShack dropped the iPhone 5C price to $45 end last week. I am pretty sure you will see the iPhone 5C advertised for free in Black Friday 2013 ads. I could even see Walmart and Best Buy through in a $50 or $100 gift card with the free iPhone 5C. Walmart offered a free $100 gift card with many smartphones last Black Friday.
It looks like that Apple gave retailers full flexibility on the pricing of the iPhone 5C. Typically Apple is very strict on sales prices. The iPhone 5S seems to be still under this tight control from Cupertino.
We expect the Free iPhone 5C Black Friday deal to appear even before the actual Black Friday 2013, November 29.
