Sprint is offering up to $100 in instant rebates when buying a phone online until 8/14
There are just so many places where you can get a great deal on a phone you've been yearning for, but the prices on some online retail places like Amazon, Wirefly, LetsTalk, and so on make handset pricing look extremely irresistible. However, they generally require you to stick to one of the plans they specifically offer which are usually supplemented with various add-ons that can ultimately push your monthly charges up the roof. When going with through a carrier's web site, some times they offer exclusive sales on handsets online so you'll receive an instant rebate as opposed to those pesky mail-in ones. Sprint is throwing a special promotion right now and will go on until August 14 where they offer up to $100 in instant rebates on pretty much every device they offer online – except for the HTC EVO 4G. From inexpensive handsets like the LG Remarq to some prized smartphones like the HTC Touch Pro2, they all are now pricing accordingly with “web special” discounts which essentially replaces the mail-in-rebates they tend to be. For example, the HTC Touch Pro2 is usually $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate, but now they're giving it to you at the reduced price at the time of purchase online. So if you've been waiting for a good time to get your handset directly from Sprint, now is definitely the time – so don't pass up on this limited time offer.

This isn't anything particularly super special. There are web specials all of the time on Sprint.com. Only difference here is that it is every phone instead of just a dozen or so (excluding EVO of course). Normally the web specials change every few days. The EVO isn't available on Sprint.com or through Telesales right now anyway, all of the inventory being received is going directly to the retail stores regardless.

not true it pops up for sale on sprint.com and thus tele sales every few days dont believe me check yourself Ive 'seen it available for purchase every 2-4 days online. If anything stores are getting trickled amounts and best buy is getting the lions share.

i noticed this last night when my sister bought a samsung intercept. Turns out the phone isn't half bad. they gave wrong official spec information saying its a 3.0" touch screen but its 3.2 so hopefully they were wrong about it being rev 0.

Wow, this is great... Except the fact of making it harder for us who sell phones in stores and work on a commission. WTF!!! Anybody ever wonder why our Economy sucks dingle berries? Maybe it's because jack asses get the bright idea that offering better online specials is a good idea. Why can't they do the same for out the door? Would it really be that difficult? I mean dip shit's and their bright ideas are just making the economy go to more shit... The only people this really benefits are the multi million dollar credit card companies and banks, along with Sprint. But if Sprint actually gave two shits about the people who create a good image of them and represent them, they might think about helping there hard workers out. But let's allow these big box companies and these online stores put the hard working Americans out of business with their next to nothing deals. Cuz for the dwights who go and purchase phones from these companies, I'm welcomed by angry ass holes who believe it's my fault when their phone doesn't work right and I didn't even sell them it. Lets be real, Verizon, At&t, and T-Mobile representatives I know feel the same way. W!!!!T!!!!F!!!!
