I made my purchase on AT&T's website yesterday. I saw the walmart wireless price online this morning and called the AT&T customer service line shortly after.
She first said that I could simply return it (unopened) w/o paying a restock fee and just buy it from walmart. I asked her to match or give me credit on my bill and she gave me a $50 credit within minutes + sent me an email confirmation of receiving credit.
I was surprised on how after she saw the difference in price she corrected everything and made me a happy shopper in minutes.
I bought it from the At&t premier website and they don't charge $36 dollar upgrade fee. Premier sucks in many ways except for the discounts (like 20% off my monthly bill). Many employers have it but few employee's know of it.
Walmart I think has free standard shipping going on.
Sweet! My only regret buying on Friday was seeing that Walmart had it for $49 shortly after. I bought my phone in store yesterday and just did an online chat and got a price match. They are going to credit my next bill the difference!
I was afraid they were going to give me trouble since the phone rang up at $49 and then got charged $49 for the charging plate separately. But they didn't give me any trouble whatsoever.
I was looking for such a thread and saw this. Thanks!
This didn't work for me. Went into at&t store first and asked for price match, was told no because WalMart's price is an online only offer. Next I called customer support, was denied again. Both times I heavily complained. Gonna see what happens when I return the phone to buy from WalMart instead, because even with the restocking fee I'll be saving money.
Didn't work for me. Talked to three customer care reps... "we don't price match devices" is what I was told each time. Told them I'd return my 3 Lumia 920s and repurchase through Walmart and they said go ahead.
Worked for me as well. I simply asked if they would price match to walmart. She said they they don't normally price match but she would credit me $50 back this one time. Actually got more because of Tax.
