Some of you are likely upset that we now know for certain that Wal-Mart won’t be selling the iPhone for $99, and instead will give it a measly $2 discount when it goes on sale on Sunday. So I’m happy to report today that there is one outlet that’s started selling iPhones for $99 — perhaps you’ve even heard of it: AT&T.

Yes, AT&T’s website is listing refurbished 8 gigabyte iPhone 3Gs for only $99 after you sign a two-year contract. This is an extra $50 savings over what AT&T was previously selling the refurbished models for, but you better hurry — the sale ends on New Year’s Eve.

The site also lists refurbished 16GB iPhone 3Gs (in both black and white) for $199, the current regular price of the 8GB model. If you don’t mind getting a refurbished iPhone, these seem like awesome deals — certainly better than $2 off.
