"Dear Microsoft Store Customer,

Thank you for participating in the Windows Phone Challenge! We're thrilled to say that response to the challenge far exceeded our expectations. While the response to the challenge was great, the incredible demand also depleted our inventory of many popular Windows Phone models and, unfortunately, your preferred choice of Windows Phone is no longer in-stock. We are actively working to secure more inventory and anticipate receiving additional inventory in the next 4-5 weeks. We genuinely appreciate your patience.

We understand that 4-5 weeks is a long time to wait for your new Windows phone. If you would prefer not to wait for additional phone inventory, we are pleased to offer an alternative. Instead of receiving a Windows Phone, you may visit the Costa Mesa, CA Microsoft Store where you participated in the challenge to receive a $200 Microsoft Store gift card for use on any products carried at the Microsoft Store. If you choose the $200 Microsoft Store gift card option, you will not be required to recycle your existing phone, but you will no longer be eligible for a free phone from the Windows Phone Challenge.

Of course, if you elect the option of a new Windows Phone, we will let you know when your new phone is available.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you at the Microsoft Store soon.

Microsoft Store"

I got this a few days ago. Who doesn't know that free stuff attracts people...? Haha

$200 store credit and keep your existing handset or wait 4-6 weeks for the device you picked and trade in your handset. You don't get both. You pick one.

Dear Microsoft Store Customer,

Thank you again for participating in the Windows Phone Challenge! We are still actively working to secure more inventory and anticipate receiving additional inventory in the next 2-3 weeks. We appreciate your patience. We also wanted to remind you that you are welcome to visit the Costa Mesa, CA Microsoft Store where you participated in the challenge to receive a $200 Microsoft Store gift card as an alternative to waiting for your phone.

If you choose the $200 Microsoft Store gift card option, you will not be required to recycle your existing phone, but you will no longer be eligible for a free phone from the Windows Phone Challenge.

If you would like to choose the $200 gift card option, please click this link and send us an email to let us know you will visit the store to pick up your gift card: I choose the $200 gift card

If you prefer to wait 2-3 weeks until an eligible Windows Phone is available, please click this link and send us an email to let us know you plan on waiting for your phone: I will wait for my Windows Phone

Of course, if you elect the option of a new Windows Phone, we'll contact you again when your new phone is available.

Thanks again, and we hope to see you at the Microsoft Store soon.

They're still doing it? Prizes are gift cards now, correct?
