UPDATED:New Pre buyers receive $100 service credit from Sprint
Sprint is trying to pump up the Pre's sales numbers by offering a $100 service credit to new buyers of the device. Simply purchase a new Pre with a two-year contract before October 10th and bring over an active phone number from your old carrier. Within the next 3 invoices, you will receive a credit for $100. In effect, it is like paying $99 for the Palm Pre. There are a few conditions written in fine print that you can check out at the source link. If you have been eyeing the Pre from afar (read another carrier), Sprint is opening their vault in an effort to lure you in. Have you been hooked?

So much for the $100 credit. Sprint has pulled it, saying in a statement that it was put into the system by mistake and was
an error. Sprint apparently told All Things Digital that it will honor the offer to anyone who purchased the Pre while the offer was live.
Still, playing Indian Giver doesn't help a carrier's reputation.
