Last week, Best Buy announced a monthlong deal offering $50 off a new iPhone. Now Best Buy is adding another offer — good only Saturday, June 1 — guaranteeing an extra $150 off for those who trade in a working iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S to get a new iPhone.

Meanwhile, Target said it is offering a $50 price cut on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S on Sprint, Verizon or AT&T. That promotion starts Sunday and runs through June 9 — the day before Apple kicks off its Worldwide Developers Conference.

In addition, through July 6, Target is offering an additional $50 off an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S for those who trade in any working cellphone.
