You can save 25% off the price of all smartphones available from the Best Buy Mobile eBay store for a limited time only; even those handsets like the Samsung GALAXY Note II or the Samsung Galaxy S III can be purchased with the 25% discount...

Now that sounds like a good Black Friday Deal... 25% off, cool.... Can't beat that NoteII at the moment.... To bad i'm stuck here in Germany, hopefully a Note III will get a deal like that, next year. :)

But make sure you get the right price and not pay too much... Read the fine print before buying...

Didn't work for me :( " We're sorry, the promotion code you entered has expired. Please enter another promotion code or click "Checkout" to proceed with your order".

Today is the 10th of November. Your article says the promo code is good until the 9th of December. Trying to use it on the eBayBestBuyMobile page gets you a message that the code is expired!

Yeah I get same message, looks like there is a writer on PA who never bothered to check facts or verify anything before they reported what a shame this ruins PAs rep especially for the good writers like Ray S, Victor, John V and the great Mikey H who write good articles and spend days meticulously verifying sources, triple checking facts, and still making deadlines to bring incredible, informative, thought provoking, and accurate articles to PAs readers. This writer (I won't mention his name) owes his colleagues an apology by monday morning at the latest.

You mean like they triple checked the Sony Nexus or the Best Buy Black Friday deal that was actually for Radio Shack?

Their storefront is like an organized crime front. $599 for a Lumia 920? I walked out of AT&T for $486, tax and all, so no way I would buy a damned thing from BB Mobile.

Edit: I take that back. Their regular webpage sells for that price, too. They tried to charge me $30 for a SIM card, the other day. Crooks.

Tried this code "EBSAVE25" last night PST about 10pm and it worked, but didn't have all info in front of me, so figured I wait till this morning. Now get the same "expired" message. What's the deal? ...... yesterday was 11/9, so can't be a typo of "November" 8th instead of December 8th.
Unfortunately, I have to make the comment that this is probably BestBuy which is on its way out due to things just like this - screwing the customer.
That said ...... hope the 25% comes back!

Just got off the phone with the best buy customer service. The reason for the price difference is because Best Buy only "Manages" the Best Buy Ebay store. They do not control pricing nor can they price match. So basically, it is just Best Buy branded, they don't own the site which is the reason for the price difference.

My hopes were crushed!

The Lumia 920 sells for the same price on best buy.com and in their E-bay store.

Got very frustrated (at BestBuy) after them taking away the 25% deal and my almost ordering it; but ........ searched and found Walmart had a one-day special on Note 2's ........ only $249.99 and NO tax. GOT 2 of 'em!!!!! So, actually $50 CHEAPER than BestBuy ........... YOU LOOSE BestBuy!

Thanks for the heads up 3mstrrktek7! I got a similar deal on the HTC One X+ minus $50, no tax AND a $100 Walmart gift card! I was about to get in on Bestbuy/Ebay mobile but I stumbled on this! Now I just need to sell back the iPhone and my HTC will be free =)
