Best Buy is selling the iPhone 5C for only $50 with a two-year contract for the next four days.
The phone normally sells for $100 on contract, which means Best Buy is selling it for half-off.
Consumers who buy the 5C at Best Buy get a $50 gift card that they can apply to the phone on the spot, says Joanna Stern at ABC News. Best Buy is also doing the same deal for Samsung's Galaxy S4. The iPhone 5S does not get a discount. The deal runs from Oct. 3 to Oct. 7.
The 5C has only been out for two weeks now, so this sudden discount is pretty surprising.
We're not sure what, if anything, it says about sales of the 5C.
Analysts have been saying that demand for the 5S is significantly stronger than the 5C, which makes sense in the U.S. The 5S is $100 more than the 5C on a two-year contract. Over the life of the phone, it's worth it to pay the extra $100.
