Looking for an iPhone, but don't want to pay the normal two-year subsidized price for one? If you're a Best Buy Premier Silver rewards customer, you could save some cash this week.
In a promotion taking place from February 21st to February 27th on new lines and those eligible for upgrade (no early upgrades allowed), the 8 GB iPhone 3G will be free; the 16 GB iPhone 3G will be $29.99; the 16 GB iPhone 3GS will be $49.99; and the 32 GB iPhone 3GS will be $149.99 (all require a new two-year agreement, of course). It's important to note that these "refreshed" units have been thoroughly tested, and carry the same warranty that a new iPhone would carry. Better yet, Best Buy honors that warranty, so you have a local option to voice your concerns if the unit does have issues in the first year of ownership.
After visiting a Best Buy location this weekend, I can confirm that this is true. While speaking to an employee/friend of mine, I was casually talking about my recent promotion to Best Buy's Premier Silver status this year, and the offer was mentioned to me. You'll need the coupon below and Premier Silver status to take advantage of the offer. Once you print it out, head down to your local Best Buy and pick up your device(s). With the Devour coming out this week, pre-orders for the Backflip have begun, and the price of the DROID has dropped to $99.99. That being said, are you still intent on an iPhone, or is Android sounding more and more appealing?
