    My local Microsoft Store is saying you can't stack the 10% discount with this deal. Maybe if you speak to the right Associate/Manager you can get it done.
    It works online. I got the confirmation email.

    Ugh, I knew that guy was being a *****. I tried it online from the store but it was still showing up as $650 after entering the student discount section. What did you do different?

    Just ordered mine. xl for my wife and 950 for me. AT&T here I come. See ya later Verizon. It's been a great 20+ year ride, but nothing lasts forever.

    Edited to add - I am also a DirecTV subscriber so I get the AT&T unlimited deal.

    Not a good news. Today I went to enquire about Lumia 950xl in Allahabad, India at an authorized Microsoft dealer. He informed me that Microsoft is winding up it's mobiles phone business from non-metro cities in India.

    I got all the way to checkout but just could not pull the trigger. I have already purchased two XL's and sold both to go back to Verizon Family Plan. If only the CDMA radios were active. I refuse to spend good money after bad. Damn, now my common sense decides to rear it's ugly head.

    I selected my school, and then clicked the page. It showed 594, clicked checkout and it added the 950 as $0. It was pretty straight after that.

    For my scenario, I had to add the phone in the cart, where the discounted price would show up.

    MS marketing is totally screwed up. Why do not set the lower price in the beginning? All phone 950XL, 950, 650 are overpriced!

    Folks,

    I just added a 950XL to the cart and it shows up at the discounted price of $584.10 ($649.00 - 10%) and $0.00 for the 950 (my wife is a teacher).

    This promotion of "buy a 950xl and get a 950 for free" makes no sense. Why not just offer the 950 series phone at a 45%-50% discount? Not everyone needs two phones. They would probably sell more by discounting the phone rather than BOGO free.

    I would jump all over it if I had the need. For a few hundred dollars a piece for flagship phones, it is a killer deal. together with the year of office 365. Been very happy with my 950XL for the last 5 months. Some speed bumps, but that is to be expected since I am on the insider fast ring, but all in all, it has been a very nice phone. I am one of the ones who does not care how expensive the back looks. as they all look the same with a protective case. I care about the screen, camera, and speed.

    Maybe because they want more WM10 users, and they're trying get rid of 950 stock at the same time?

    They wouldn't let me stack the student discount or the 920 trade-in for the BYGO deal at the Boston Microsoft store. I bought the 950 29 days ago with the $100 discount, so I was able to "return" that and get an additional 950xl for $200.

    I was going to give it to my wife to replace her aging 920, but it's a little too big. Does anyone have a 950 from the deal that they'd be willing to swap for an XL? This one is new in box and I'd prefer the same.

    Thank you. Left work and went back to the store and told them it works online. Management literally made me show them, and still didn't believe it when they saw it. Microsoft Store experiences can be very hit-or-miss. Anyway, in the end I got the difference back.

    So were you able to pick up the phones right away?

    Yup, the offer is valid in retail stores as well as online. Walked out of there with my white Lumia 950 XL and black Lumia 950. Both unlocked.

    I just took advantage of this at the Burlington MA Microsoft store earlier tonight. I had a couple old numbers parked at ring.to, and it turns out T-Mobile was running a promo that let me add two lines at 6gb each for just $10 more/month so went ahead and got a black 950 XL and 950. Happy to have a windows phone device again and also to have that Lumia-quality camera too. :) Waiting for all the apps and the 218 update to finish up.

    This way MS can say they moved a higher volume of phones. Apple and Samsung did the exact same thing (BOGOF) with their latest releases.

    This should actually net you a lower cost than discounting one phone by 45-50% (assuming you sell the unused phone new).

    Don't forget your student/faculty ID. Depending on who's managing at the time, they may ask for edu proof. They asked for mine. I came straight from work so luckily I had it.

    I bought it online already. My ID has been verified with the .edu account verification. Instead of waiting for MS to ship it I was thinking about picking it up from the Store, not sure if its even possible.

    Microsoft is offering a free Lumia 950 when you buy a Lumia 950 XL ? Damn. It sucks that this offer is only for the US and Canda, would love to have one of those phones =/.
