Back on November 21st, 2018 I went to these two links:
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.
From chat transcript:

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...
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.
