Full discount limited to retail stores
As planned, Sprint-owned Boost Mobile has begun sales of the iPhone 5s and 5c. The prepaid carrier is offering roughly $100 off Apple's pricing if a phone is ordered online. A previously unannounced promotion, however, is that through November 24th, people buying any device in-store will be eligible for an additional $100 off, so long as they're switching from another carrier.
Boost's Monthly Unlimited plans start at $55, but can shrink in cost if a person becomes a long-term customer and consistently pays on time. Tiers provide unlimited voice, texts, and data, but throttle 3G/4G access over 2.5GB. The upfront costs of Boost's iPhones are higher since they're contract-free.
