    Just placed my order online using student discount and bing rewards. Both my phones are on backorder. I was also charged shipping for each phone.

    I just looked and both of mine are on back order, as well. Could have sworn they were listed as in stock when I placed the order yesterday.

    Curious as I assumed they were pushing excess inventory.

    When does the thirty day return window begin?

    ETA: Just saw this at the bottom -- "*You have 30 days to return or exchange items after receipt of shipment."

    Ordered another for my father about 30 minutes before you posted this message. Couldn't be bothered to make yet another trip to the MS Store and deal with managers that were jumping through hoops not give me my EDU discount.

    It says "ships by April 27." No hint of back order just yet. I wonder if I ordered just in time. Or maybe it has something to do with which color you ordered? I got the 950 XL in white.

    I ordered a black one yesterday, the 25th. I thought it said it was in stock but I guess I wasn't paying that much attention.

    I suppose I'll live if it ships tomorrow. It's just, I can take 10 times to forever to make my mind up on something, but once I decide then I want it yesterday...

    Just before I read this response, I checked again (have the tab open, refreshing) and now it says Back Ordered -_-. I dislike how misleading that is. Would have went the brick-and-mortar store route. It definitely showed "in stock" when I placed the order. The email confirmation says "ships by April 27," but that of course was sent when I placed the order.

    I bought a 950 in mid-March, and I love the phone. Reading through this thread, please forgive me for adding the absolutely meaningless comment I love the enthusiasm!

    Enjoy your new phones. :-)

    Much ado about nothing, it seems. I just got my shipment confirmation email.

    Can I ask when you ordered yesterday? Not that it will change my status but it's fun playing the guessing game as I ordered mine at about 7pm Central Time (4/25) and am still on back order. Thanks.

    Placed my order, site still says in stock but the phone is definitely on back-order. This really puts a damper on this all. Fingers crossed they sort out their stock issue soon.

    By the way, is anyone suddenly having trouble applying the education discount online? I work at an EDU and told my co-worker about the deal (trying to convert them to W10M). They decided to go for it but the 10% discount isn't being applied. Tried under my own account and it wasn't either. But I just ordered one this morning and it went through. We tried different browsers, each of our accounts, etc. and it's not going through. I'm thinking they decided to finally disable the EDU discount on this deal.

    EDIT: We tried applying it to other items, and it worked. It's just not working on the BOGO Lumia 950/XL offer anymore.

    Yup, same issue here. I also noticed the white ones are sold out. Ugh, I should have taken the plunge yesterday.

    only way i could spend $700 now is if i could sell the 950. so its almost like getting a major discount on the 950xl. but now there's going to be a whole bunch of discounted 950s going around. wish some of the amazon sellers would get them.

    Even if they do, what's stopping them from selling the discounted phone for a slightly cheaper price. Lets say around 400-450? That's still less than what's it sold for in the Microsoft stores (549 + taxes). If you see my comment above, I already saw one listed for like 385 on Swappa, expect more to come around the same price.

    Hm. They still have the trade-in deal. I think I'll probably trade my old 925 for a nice discount on the 950.

    I bought by 950xl 10 days ago and the store still honored this deal because I was within the 30 day return window. Microsoft you made my day, 2 phones for the price of 1 😎

    Also they told me this offer is only good for the unlocked dual sim 950xl. Glad I didn't get the AT&T version.

    If you are going to sell the 950, I'd suggest doing it quick and at a low price. People will start lowballing like crazy, pointing out that you got it for free...

    A coworker wanted a dual-SIM phone and I wanted to mess around with the 950XL, so we tag-teamed a pair from the Microsoft Store. So far, so good, white 950 XL in pocket, set up form the Lumia 830 I last used, a couple of app install glitches, but otherwise, fully set up and running. Happy to be back to Windows again, but I have the Nexus 5X for whatever needs. Good times.
