If you're looking to buy the iPhone 5s for cheap, RadioShack is the place to go. The electronics retailer is holding a promotion that drops the price of the 16-gigabyte Apple iPhone 5s to $99 on a two-year contract. That's a nearly 50% discount on the device, which is normally sold at $199 with a two-year contract. VIDEO: Protecting against Heartbleed Customers can save more money and get the gadget for free if they trade in an older iPhone. Fine print for the promotion says an iPhone 4s that works with either AT&T, Sprint or Verizon, is in working condition, includes its charger and has no cracks on the screen is enough to get the iPhone 5s for free.

Re "Military Rethinks Axing Also-Rans," June 13: It sounds like such a good idea; keep those who can contribute to the armed forces after they've been passed over for promotion. Yet a number of items have been overlooked in the article: Congress establishes the number and grade of personnel in each of the armed forces. So if you retain an officer who has been passed over for promotion, he still counts against the number of authorized officers of that grade. That means that an officer in the next lower grade who is qualified for promotion cannot be promoted because there will be no opening.
