As big box retail stores try to lure customers into their stores during the holiday season, Walmart is betting that discounts on popular electronic items is the way to go.

The iPhone sales last until February, Walmart said, which allows it to capitalize on shoppers who find money in lieu of gifts under the Christmas tree this year.
