Actually I did get a price match from a local Sprint store when my son recently upgraded to EVO 4g, matched against Best Buy. Saved him $50 I think it was at the time and I still got the $50 'rebate'..now basically a debit card, no more rebate check or instant rebate...bummer!
So I guess it depends on who you deal with.
By the Way; They also price matched the otterbox, saved another $10 that way.
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
