If you are buying an iPhone 5 at Radio Shack or Target, in-store, with a contract, you can save about $20 on the handset.
This is likely to entice shoppers to choose their store over the competition if they are in the market for an iPhone. It may not be a huge, huge savings, but $20 is something, especially during the holiday shopping season, and for a hot item like an iPhone 5.
According to what we read, it applies to AT&T models. If that’s true, it’s a bit of a bummer for those on other carriers.
