Sprint giving away $100 Amex Reward Card to new line smartphone buyers

Sprint giving away $100 Amex Reward Card to new line smartphone buyers
UPDATE: The promotion includes the iPhone 4S when you checkout, although it is not labeled as participating in the promotion as the other smartphones are, so you can essentially get it for $50 from Sprint now. This is for new lines and your account has to be active for at least 30 days before the Amex $100 card gets mailed to you.

A few days ago, we passed along the speculation that Sprint was about to offer a free ZTE Optik tablet with the purchase of every smartphone. Well, as it turns out, Sprint is giving something away, but it is not a tablet-at least not yet. From now through August 26th, purchase a new smartphone from Sprint and you will receive a $100 American Express Reward Card.

There are some caveats as usual - you must make the purchase of the smartphone online, and your account has to be active for at least 30 days before the card gets mailed to you. You can otherwise select any model, though, including those that are free with a two-year contract. Models that will be launched before the 26th of the month are also part of the promotion, such as the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE which is set to be released on August 19th.

Look at it like this "Non-apple users"(lolz) if you choose to buy a phone from sprint....That reward card is like making that particular phone $100 dollars cheaper! Sounds like a deal to me.....well not really cuz you still have to pay up front money but hey still a good deal right? :)

THIS IS WRONG. $100.00 for "ANY" smartphone. You can also call telesales and they will honor the $100.00 AMEX. This is on a new line of service only Including all smartphones and all iphone models and the refurbished iphones. This offer replaces the BOGO offer sprint had. Phone Arena please get your facts straight. That link is photoshopped.

I can assume that you work for Sprint or just a huge Sprint fan, crazy if you are, by looking at your pic. But the iPhone is not included in this promotion according to Sprint's official website. So YOU get YOUR facts straigt before jumping on PhoneArena for getting THEIR facts straight. And that link isn't photoshopped, here's the OFFICIAL link: http://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop/phone_wall.jsp?jasc=amexOffer&INTNAV=ATG:HE:Phones&ECID=MA:AB:20120814:2012_Q3_DDR:AOD_Dsk_SiteRemarketing_dCPM_RT_300x250_AT:TS2CR01_Sprint_WebEx_AMEX_300x250.swf

your wrong sprintfan, if you actually check sprints website and click on shop as if to buy a new phone, you'll notice that all the smartphones say get an extra $100 next to them except the iphones. so maybe you should get your facts straight before calling out phonearena on theirs.

if thats true then maybe they should put that on their website. Or train everybody on the same information, cause every time i call or talk to somebody online or in-store i get a different answer each time.

Our local carrier inform us that they have to ask apple for permission (basically mean pay them an arm plus two legs) to enable the tendering options in our iPad. No surprise that the carrier are pushing other non-apple device.

There needs to be clearer information on how to receive the $100 rebate after adding a new line of service with a smartphone because it's been since July 2012 since I added my line and no good customer service rep to explain how I obtain the rebate!
