Default $199 Bold price on Wirefly?

Please Login to Remove!

Is this for real? Has anyone ordered the Bold from Wirefly?

I did a Google search for BB Bold and it gave me a "sponsored link" to Wirefly for $199. I do not have 10 posts yet so cannot post the link but I am sure you could find it on a search...

There's a $100 rebate form flying around (think I saw it on Crackberry) so potentially this deal could be available to all.

Found the rebate on Crackberry. From reading the fine print on the rebate form, it appears to be an AT&T rebate that is available only to "Premier Websites". I guess Wirefly comes under that category.

(below from rebate form)
Purchases from National Retailers, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Radio Shack, Samís Club, CompUSA, Costco, LetsTalk.com (Letís Talk, LLC) and R-Solutions/SC Kiosk retail locations are not eligible for this mail in rebate offer

Default Bold is selling for $199

You guys are absolutely right! I just checked out Wirefly as well and yep, they are selling the Bold with a 2-yr contract for $199. Their list prices\ is $299 less $100 rebate. And you can pick the exact same plans as in an AT&T store!

Was planning to pick up a second Bold this weekend. I think I'll print out the Wirefly offer to show to the authorized retailer I was planning to buy from and ask him if he can match it. If he can't (and I don't think he'll be able to get there), Wirefly, here I come! $199, how can you beat that?!

This is very common. Authorized dealers usually have the best deals on new devices with activation.

Anyone remember Amazon paying you $78 to buy a Curve?
