    iPhone 5 subsidized on 2 year contract?

    Target Canada ad on their website:

    Probably a typo, but if it is real, then I might sign my wife up. Rogers was trying to get me to open a line with them and a 2 year might be enough to entice her over. But, probably a typo.

    Nothing to see here. Called the local store and the flyer is wrong for both the price and the term. It is $179 on a 3 year not $199 on a 2 year.

    Looks like they recycled their US ad or something.

    I figure so and they just replaced the carrier names. The ad copy people down there probably have no concept of 3 year contracts.

    You probably can do same thing through Rogers these days through retentions, but it will be a YMMV. Get subsidized iPhone 5 on 3-year term now, and in 2 years upgrade and get them to waive the $160 EUP. Though it's by no means guaranteed.
