Default If I waited, ATT Business Premier - only $24.99

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

I wanted to share that the BB Curve/8300 is only $24.99 ($49.99 w/ voice plan and BES unlimited + $25 online order rebate) if you have a business premier account. Unfortunately I bought it when it came out for $175. I am trying to see if the store will match or if I have to go through the hassle of returning and repurchasing.

Sounds like I will need to return and repurchase. Such a pain.

if the price was close the stores might match, but being that much off, they will probably tell you to go through premier.
I was on it just now and it still showed me $299 for both my business accounts (college staff and military FAN's)

Mine was 29.99-25 or $4.99 on premier 2 weeks ago. Now they have the 8525 for free on premier.

Just curious, but what kind of FANs do you have to get the device so cheap?!?!?
I have a premier/FAN and my price is $174, all the time. So, do tell.

Thanks!

Teddyman... How do you open a business premier account? I'm self-employed and use it 90% for business. I paid $200 for it with a two year plan with ATT.

thanks

Sounds like certain companies are getting certain discounts. So far from the replies you can pay anywhere from $0 to 24.99 to $175 depending on the deal your company has with ATT.

Puma - Not sure how to apply for Business account. I go through my work and they established the relationship.

"now they have the 8520 for free" thats not a blackberry, he's off subject...

The blackberry is $199 with voice and bb plan for any FANs ... tho they will usually apply the $25 instand off on top of that so technically $174.99

I believe the price on Premiere depends on your company's contract with AT&T. For example, through my Premiere account the Curve was $200 for the first 5 days it was out. It then dropped to $0. I paid $200, then called them when it went to $0 and got full refund. 4 of my coworkers have since ordered the device for $0. We get the Pearl for $0, too (but who would want a damn shared keyboard???).

Anyway, I believe the price of each device depends on your contractual deals with AT&T.
