Non Existent phone deal..


Non Existent phone deal..

Back on November 21st, 2018 I went to these two links:

Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9

On these links I clicked, after signing in, and selected to upgrade my S6 and Note 8 respectively, for the deal price.  

During checkout I noticed that the normal price was listed and I called Sprint to verify that the deal was valid for exiting upgrades. (it let me select upgrade and still showed me the deal price until I got the the checkout page.).

Here is a screen shot of the popup I got saying this was for existing cutomers..

Notice it says Already as customer?  take advantage of our special  pricing... etc...

I verified this with Customer support before and after purchase.


Fast forward to now:


After several attempts, this promotion has not been added to my account for either phone.

Now, when I followed up this evening, after not seeing the lower price, credits, or refund on my latest bill, I contacted them again.


They told me that this deal never existed and that the only deal they had was for new customers...


Please see image inserted in post above.. 🙂


I have been with sprint since before sprint existed (was bought by them when they stated)  almost 20 years ago, and am now wanting to switch to another carrier...


Re: Non Existent phone deal..

Hi ZON1CUS. I'd be glad to check in on this and see what's going on. I'll be sending you a PM so that I can get some additional details from you so that I can research this.
