How to get $50 from Best Buy for your next phone upgrade

Bestbuy-giftcardIf you've been living under a rock the past few days (like I apparently have been), and you've missed all the TV commercials and internet ads for this promotion, listen up: Best Buy is offering a $50 gift card for all new phone activations that go through them between now and the end of 2012.

Here's how it works:

  1. Go to bestbuy.com before Sunday, February 12, and click the banner ad for this promotion at the top of the site.
  2. Give Best Buy your mobile phone number and email address (don't worry, you can opt out of spam and notifications).
  3. Pat yourself on the back for grabbing a great deal before it's gone.

When it comes time to upgrade the mobile number that you previously gave Best Buy, you won't have to do anything extra  to claim your $50: if you upgrade in store, you'll have the option of having that $50 applied directly to your phone purchase. If you upgrade online, you'll automatically get a virtual $50 gift card emailed to you.

No mail-in rebates, no hassles … and just in time for those of us who are eagerly anticipating the next iteration of the HTC EVO, whatever that may be.
