Walmart will sell the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at a slight discount.

Instead of charging $99 for the entry level iPhone 5C, it will charge $79. For the iPhone 5S it will charge $189 instead of $199.

Walmart has often discounted the iPhone, but we can’t remember it happening this soon.

You can pre-order the 5C at Walmart this Friday. There are no preorders for the 5S, so you’ll have to go to the store on Friday, September 20 when the 5S and the 5C go on sale.

CNET points out that if you wait until September 21, Walmart is doing a smartphone trade-in program, so you can get an even better deal.

Also, if you don’t care about the color cases, you can buy an iPhone 5 for $79 today at Walmart. The iPhone 5C is the exact same thing as the iPhone 5, just with a plastic casing.
