    Sprint Offers $99 Palm Pre

    Advertisement




    Sprint effectively lowered the price of the Palm Pre today to $99 for new customers only, offering a $100 service credit to those who port their numbers over from another carrier. To be eligible for the promotion, first noted by Pali Research, customers must purchase the Pre along with a two-year service agreement and abandon their current carriers. Agree to that and Sprint will apply a $100 credit to your monthly bill over a three-month period.

    The offer, which begins today and runs through Oct. 10 (or Oct. 31, depending on which page of Sprint’s site you’re looking at), should goose sales, if only a bit–assuming Sprint (S) advertises the Palm (PALM) Pre offering.

    “We believe sales of the Pre have been fairly stable over the past month but a price cut to $99 should stimulate sales into the end of Q3, as it would for any popular phone,” Pali Research analyst Walter Piecyk told Digital Daily. “Operators have been getting more aggressive on phone subsidies in Q3, which is likely a reflection of the maturity of the wireless industry in the United States, which is at 90 percent penetration

    More after the Jump to AllThingsD: Offer ends Oct 31st.

    D'oh! Sprint pulls $99 Palm Pre promo after error

    Earlier on Tuesday, Sprint published an enticing deal to customers of competing carriers by offering a $100 service credit to anyone who bought a Palm Pre and ported his or her old number to Sprint. Sounds like a great deal, right? Well, it would have been had it lasted.
    Sprint has since pulled the offer, saying the promotion was posted in error and issuing this 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.
    I'd hate to be the person who pressed the Go button on that, but Sprint told John Paczkowski at All Things Digital that it will honor the service to anyone who purchased the deal while the offer was live. Obviously, this doesn't look good on Sprint's part but it seems the carrier has been making strides as of late
