Hello, I just got a new phone with 2 year contract under 30 days ago ( I live in California) and I discovered the nice price at Best Buy ($20) on the A840 that I bought from the Sprint store for $80. Is it possible to still get Sprint to price match Best Buys $20 price and get $60 back?

Thank you for your help. :)

Your trail period is 14 or 15 days now. Doubt they'll still do a price match.

My trial is still in effect.

Call and ask then... Can't hurt, just call the store you purchased the phone from. But Calif. doesn't offer the 30 day trial anymore.

That is a shame... how many months total did CA make them have the 30 trial? I guess I could put out the effort to call my friend that works there. lol

There is a Sprint 30 price match guarantee, as long as you have an ad. Take it to your Sprint store along with your original sales receipt and you're all set. However, the price difference goes towards your invoice, and is not returned via cash, charge or check.

And I've heard full rebates aren't given when a "price match" is done.

Yes they will take the ad to the store you activated with....they will issue a service credit for the difference. I did this process last week for my sons 8300

Awesome! I'm going to run to Best Buy to pick up their circular and then goto Sprint! :clap:

Well rats... didn't work out. The Best Buy deal was for a new line of service and my purchase of an A840 at the sprint store was an "upgrade" since I already had sprint since 2003. So, they said they wouldn't price match. :(

It amazes me that someone like construct who's been a member of this forum since Feb 03 manages to leave out the fact that he was buying an UPGRADE phone from Sprint.
Construct, if you don't know by now the low prices you see advertised by the large retail chains are for NEW activations usually with a 2yr contract you probably shouldn't be using a cell phone or not do so much maryjane before logging on this website :irked:

California is no longer 30 days. It's been that way for a while now.

However some stores still do the 30 day return...Bay area store...FAIRFIELD still quotes and accepts 30 day returns....FYI for you bay area people. YMMV. Which is another example of CS with SPRINT... :rolleyes:
