Samsung Captivate drops in price to $49.99 on-contract through Amazon
If you managed to repel the temptation of placing an order for the Samsung Captivate through Amazon when it was attractively priced at $89.99 on-contract not too long ago, then you should give yourself a pat on the back for doing a good job. Your patience has paid off now that the online retailer has dropped the price by another $40 which now places it at an even more impressive price of $49.99. Naturally this easily makes AT&T's pricing of $199.99 look extremely over bloated, but this deal is only available for new customers signing a 2-year contract. As with almost all new phone purchases through Amazon, they're throwing in free two day shipping so you don't have to wait long to experience one of the best Android handsets on AT&T's lineup. While we're on the topic of Android, Amazon is also offering the HTC Aria and Motorola BACKFLIP for the easy to swallow price of $0.01 – decisions, decisions.

Ha ha beware the double contract and cancellation fees that you get hit with for changing ANYTHING on your plan... and its not att that charges you so you cant just call them to bitch and get it credited... scam artists just like wirefly or when it sounds too good to be true... well it almost always is! Just wait until someone at least a little more reputable and accountable like best buy or the shack offer a price like that. ..
