If 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:
- Go to bestbuy.com before Sunday, February 12, and click the banner ad for this promotion at the top of the site.
- Give Best Buy your mobile phone number and email address (don't worry, you can opt out of spam and notifications).
- 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.[Best Buy] Thanks, Danny and Jon!
