So I am up for a upgrade next week on the 18th and I really wanted to upgrade from the Skyrocket to the Note II. I want to try to find the best deal, because at the current $300 I don't think I would be able to get it. A month or so ago a couple people had luck getting Best Buy to price match the $99 Amazon Wireless price for the Note II on Sprint.. for a upgrade on AT&T. I have no idea how they got it to go through but someone even posted a copy of his receipt from Best Buy. Last week I called about 20 times trying to get a discount from AT&T customer service, since people had luck with them as well, but that failed. So I went down to Best Buy and they wouldn't do it either, even with the copy of the receipt. I just read about the $200 deal from Best Buy for the previous weekend and it sucks because people were able to get these great deals, and now that my upgrade is actually here I am going to miss out. Anyway, now that my rant is over, I was wondering if there are certain things people say or tricks that allow them to get places like Best Buy to lower prices that much and if I would be able to get a great deal next week.

Thanks.

See what the current deals are @ Radio Shack, Costco, Sams Club, etc. Bring those ads in to Best Buy and see what they will price match... if that doesn't work, show some leg.

I called AT&T customer service (several times) & talked to them about what a great customer I was & I was able to get it for $199 (the week of release!) They even waived all activation fees, & over nite shipping! There is a thread here about it if you do a search! (that is how I got the idea!)

Really.... I saw that a couple people posted about success at BB with price matching sprint but when I went in they said its for sprint and they won't price match for att. Currently there is a deal going on at BB that they give you $50 rewards points. Also RadioShack has note 2 upgrade for $200 so hopefully I can get BB to price match and then get the $50 off and get the note for $150.


But I would still like to get the $99 price match.. do you still have your receipt from when you got yours?

Amazon Wireless has it for $199 with an upgrade or new contract. That's where I got mine.

I am going tomorrow to finally get it from Best Buy.. I'm going to get them to price match radio shack and they seem to be having some deal where they give you $50 dollar credit.. so hopefully I will be able to get both those things and get if for $150.

How were you able to get it for $139 from Best Buy?..
