Sprint Not Killing-Off Instant-Rebate-Only Plan Just Yet

Advertisement

Sprint kicked off the beginning of spring with an announcement that for a limited time it would do away with the annoyance of mail-in rebates for its phones, instead offering the same savings through instant in-store rebates. At the time, the carrier didn’t reveal an end-date for the program, but it was clear from the beginning that as great as the idea sounded, it wouldn’t be around forever. In April, a leaked screenshot suggested the offer could end as soon as early May, which would have made the project disappointingly short-lived.

The message to its dealers advises them that the instant rebates will continue to replace mail-ins for well over another month, up through July 23. A final end to mail-in rebates (heck, even instant rebates – just put a number on the phone and sell it for that price) would be nice, but we’ll settle for what reprieves we can get, for when we can get them. If you want to pick up a Sprint phone without waiting weeks and weeks to get some of your money back, you’d better act soon.
