Find a good seller with copious feedback on ebay, use buy it now in conjunction with the MS Live cash back promotion (25% cashback today).

I bought one NIB for $420 shipped (after $140 in cashback) today.

You can try this...

Wirefly - Bold for 199.99 w/ 2yr contract...(locked and you can unlock)
Now, if someone can figure out how to get out of the contract... Great price though... ! (beats B*stB*y by $$$)

ok, i was able to get the MS Live cashback going but i was only able to get $175 off the cheapest $699.99 BIN price.

can you link me to lower BIN price you were able to find, thanks!

MS Live cashback info: *EDITED* Up to 30% off at eBay through MSFT cashback program

Quote:


-Go to eBay.com and find an item you want to buy (it MUST have a Buy it now option with paypal)

-You can get up to $200 per completed item/auction. When the discount is 30% you'd get maximum ($200) CashBack with a $666.67 item ($200 is 30% of $666.67). With 25% you'd get maximum CashBack with an $800 item.

-Add that item to your watch list.

-Click on one of the "Working search terms" listed above.

-Click on the 30% (or 25% or 20% - whatever the current amount is) banner (Live Search CashBack).

-Now you are in eBay go to My eBay and look at items on your watchlist.

-Click on the watchlist item you want to buy.

-Click on 'Buy it now'.

-Before 'Committing to Buy', be sure the CashBack details are shown on the screen with the proper percentage (maximum $200) of the item(s) value.

-Check out and pay with Paypal and the CashBack will be yours!

Terms giving 30% CashBack: None known at present.
Terms giving 25% CashBack: 'd40x', 'xsi', 'wii', 'ps3', or use the word cheap with most items.
I bought from this guy, but they are gone now. @@@ BLACKBERRY ( BOLD )* 9000 BRAND NEW IN BOX AT&T @@@ - eBay (item 140279084422 end time Nov-03-08 15:06:58 PST)

I just searched for 'Blackberry Bold' in the cellphones/pdas category and sorted it by 'buy it now only' and 'lowest to highest price'. Checked out the 3 best priced with shipping factored in and this guy had the best feedback.
