It was fun while it lasted. BGR exclusively reported back in May that Sprint was doing away with mail-in rebates for an unspecified period of time. According to a purported leaked document obtained by Sprint news site SprintFeed, the limited-time promotion will come to an end later this month. “Duuude, where’s my rebate?” the dealer memo asks. The answer — riddled with errors, though it may be — is July 24th. As we’ve learned long ago, typos and grammar mistakes hardly mean a carrier-made document is fake, and Sprint customers who prefer to buy their devices directly from the carrier should consider doing so before the 24th. A Sprint spokeswoman declined to comment. Hit the break to take a look at the purported letter to Sprint dealers. More →
BGR has learned that Sprint will be getting rid of mail-in rebates on its phones and other devices beginning March 27th, and we have confirmed with Sprint that mail-in rebates will be a thing of the past — at least for a limited time. A Sprint spokesperson confirmed to BGR that “Sprint will temporarily replace mail-in rebates in most channels, including our company-owned retail stores, with instant savings.” It all goes down on Sunday, March 27th, and it will continue for “an unspecified period of time,” the Sprint spokesperson told us. Sprint just seems to be rocking and rolling these days, huh?
