Just hours after posting a great offer on their website, Sprint has pulled it.
The offer? Switch to Sprint and receive $100 of service free – If you buy the Palm Pre.
Why? James Fisher, a Sprint spokesman, said in a statement:
“After further internal review today, the offer of a port-in service credit of $100 to new customers who buy the Palm Pre has been pulled, because it was put into the system in error.”
Now you may get lucky – rumor has it that in some areas, the deal is still on Sprint’s Web site.
You got it while it was hot? Great. Sprint will honor the offer for customers who signed up for it during the time it was available, James said.
From what we know, as of mid afternoon Tuesday, the offer was still available in Seattle to users accessing the Web. The offer was on the main page for the Palm Pre, and it said it would be available until Oct. 31. Clicking through for more details opened a page that said the deal would be available until Oct. 10, and that the $100 credit would be spread out over three months.
As per now normal sprint policy, the deal can not be combined with other offers, discounts, or rebates. The Pre currently costs $200 after $250 in “instant savings” and a $100 mail-in rebate.
