It's so nice to look at a new gadget and see that' it's just within your price range and/or a really good deal. It's exactly as nice as seeing "after main-in rebate" is nasty. Yes folks, it's 2012, the economy is still in a slump, there are no flying cars and retailers are still fine and dandy with ridiculous mail-in rebates. The new HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is getting one such rebate, $50 off the price of the new phone. The rebate was spotted in an internal Verizon document.
Word on the street is that Verizon plans on getting rid of their rebate program for all phones costing $150 and above. What does this mean?! It means that while at the moment when you walk into a store and see a phone that costs $400, $300 with mail-in-rebate, in the future you'll just see the phone for a $300. Why haven't they done this sooner?
If you haven’t heard yet, all phones will be free at T-Mobile this Saturday for their Father’s Day sale. Most T-Mobile locations are expected to open up at 8a.m. in anticipation for the rush. Radio Shack is now joining in on the fun as well, offering every T-Mobile phone in their stores free. But, Radio Shack has sweetened the pot a bit with their offering.
This morning Best Buy announced they would start preorder of the HTC EVO immediately. You can heads to your local store and place your order right now. This may be the best way to go, if you remember HTC phones have been selling like hot cakes and this phone will surely sell out the first day. Preordering will reserve your handset and guarantee that you will have when it launch, Who knows you might even get lucky and have it sent to you before it’s released.
