“Deals aimed at tempting iPhone users to upgrade their devices are starting to crop up,” Mike Snider reports for USA Today.

“Walmart today is dropping the price of its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models to $99 and $29 from $149 and $49. Two-year activation is required for AT&T, Sprint or Verizon and each phone has 16 GB of memory. The discounts are only available in Walmart stores,” Snider reports. “Meanwhile, Costco earlier this week began selling iPhones online at discounted prices, with 16GB iPhone 5s models starting at $77.99.”

“More deals are likely as retailers and providers seek to prompt buyers from their wait-and-see mindsets,” Snider reports. “Many customers may be waiting for discounts on iPhones that come after Apple brings new models to market.
