    Default Best EPIC price

    So far were looking at 350 + 100 fail rebate from sprint what else do you see out there?


    +student rate, 350 - 100 (sprint) MIR - 50 Student rate - 25 rebate = $175 winner so far.
    +sprint, 350 + 100 MIR = $250


    -wirefly nothing
    -best buy, coming soon(gift card?)
    -radio shack, nothing
    -amazon, nothing

    Radioshack already said on twitter they will have preorders starting on Friday but my guess is they will be $250 out the door since they dont do Mail in rebates.

    Best Buy also may announce something this Friday but I expect them to follow Radioshack.


    The only place that does mail in rebates as far as I know is Sprint stores directly.

    If you buy from any other retailer they almost always give you the price after mail in rebates.

    I already reserved mine at Sprint but that is basically a backup since I am almost 100% certain I will be buying at Bestbuy/Radioshack (depending if any of them throw in any accessories like they did for the EVO).

    As a student, I'm very intrigued by the notion of a 23% discount on my monthly Sprint bill. What's the "up to" part of that? Is there a page that can tell me exactly what I will be saving? It might be worth buying from Sprint online and having to do the MIR.

    What radio shack and best buy do is charge an activation fee. That's something Sprint does not charge for an upgrade.

    There are 2 discounts. One is 15% the other is 23%. The 23% one is for RI college students and alumni or something, though according to a thread on android central it seems to be a good faith thing, so you could probably get that discount if you tried. For all others, 15% is the discount available if you are a student.

    Here is the android forums thread for more info

    Awesome! I'm in Oklahoma, not Rhode Island, but 15% off would cancel out that $10 not-a-4G-tax quite nicely! Thanks.

    In my experiences usually if you talk to the employees they are cool about it and waive the fee.

    YMMV though

    Just for your math computations, the new Sprint rules add the $10 AFTER your monthly discount. It is not reduced by any credits at all for anyone.

    The studentrate deal looks really cool... I just checked out their website and now it seems like you can pre-order the Samsung Epic. Since I wanna get mine right when it comes out, I think it's worth it...
    What do you guys think?

    I pre-ordered my Epic through studentrate but the last time I checked they will be mailing them to you overnight starting on the release date. So you likely won't have it in your hand until Sept 1. Not a deal breaker for me since its a good deal on the phone/service but for some people it may be.

    Is there any way to make sure they don't mess with my current discount? I'd hate to see them replace my 25% discount with a 15%!

    Sure, just write in the body of the email that you don't want them to screw with your discount but you want the free shield and the rebates and $50-credit to your account

    I don't see how this is even possible. I honestly wouldn't trust that site with my personal information.

    wirefly not only $239 w/no rebates but also free shipping and no tax. you can always add student discount of 23% later to your plan.
