Best Buy Mobile said that the company would offer three smartphones for free today, and stock the white iPhone, too.
The free phones? The Samsung Fascinate (Verizon), the Samsung Captivate (AT&T) and the BlackBerry Curve 3G (Sprint). But the offer is only good through Friday and Saturday, April 29 and April 30 - an extension from the "free phone Fridays" the retailer ran last year, including the offer of a free iPhone.
And if you're looking for one of those white iPhones? Well, they'll have those too, Best Buy said. The white iPhone will also be available online. There's no word on the available stock, however.
"We've had tremendous success with the 'Free Phone Friday' campaigns we ran last October and December, and we've been waiting for the opportunity to do it again with a great lineup of in-demand phones," said Scott Moore, vice president of Marketing for Best Buy Mobile, in a statement. "We've worked hard to make it as easy as possible for people to find the smart phone that's right for them with the most smart phones under one roof, exclusives and expert advice, and this is just one more reason to visit Best Buy Mobile."
If lining up at the Apple Store or AT&T Store isn’t your thing, and you are still in need of an iPhone 3G, you may be interested to know that, beginning next month, you can instead join the crowd outside of your local Best Buy in the morning. Well, if yours is one of the 18 Best Buy Mobile locations in the US.
It appears that on September 7th, all the word that Best Buy went into coaxing AT&T and Apple into allowing them to be the exclusive third-party distributor of the iPhone 3G will have paid off. Don’t expect any price breaks (or increases), as they will be selling the phone for the same $199 and $299 (if you qualify) price point that you will find in the first-party stores.
Hopefully this is a sign that there will be more to go around?
