Whatever you do, don’t buy an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus right now. Apple’s new iPhones are two of the best smartphones the world has ever seen, and they are supported by the best mobile app ecosystem on the planet. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature stunning designs that are shockingly thin and unmistakably Apple. They also sport beautiful displays and the best camera that has ever been included on an Apple device.

But trust us: You don’t want to buy an iPhone right now.

When we reviewed the iPhone 6, we were absolutely blown away. We also said Apple’s first phablet was one of the best large smartphones ever made in our iPhone 6 Plus review.

So why are we now telling you to avoid buying these awesome phones at all costs?

Beginning immediately, Walmart is slashing its prices on several handsets and, in doing so, the retailer is offering some of the best prices we have ever seen for Apple’s brand new iPhone models. Walmart-owned Sam’s Club is getting in on the action as well.

Here are the new prices, which go into effect immediately:

  • iPhone 5s (16GB): $49 at Walmart, $47 at Sam’s Club
  • iPhone 6 (16GB): $129 at Walmart, $127 at Sam’s Club
  • iPhone 6 Plus (16GB): $229 at Walmart, $227 at Sam’s Club

All prices require a new two-year contract, and they apply to iPhone models from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.

And the best thing about this new sale is that you won’t have to rush or battle crowds to take advantage of them — these new prices are good for more than a month.

Also of note, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is dropping to $79 on contract at Walmart and Sam’s Club.

Updated to clarify that the new prices go into effect on Thursday, December 11th.
