    So I was at my local Microsoft Store a few days ago checking out the 950 XL. One of the store associates said "we may have a promo going on right now" and went off to check. When she got back she said the promo wasn't in affect yet, but that it involved buying a Lumia 950 XL and getting a regular 950 free. She said I can buy the phone now and take advantage of the promo when it starts.

    I chose not to get the phone just in case for now, but doesn't that promo sound way too good to be true? She told me to keep checking back to see if the promo started. I'm sure I'd hear about it all over the place when and if it does take affect.

    Has anyone else heard anything about this?

    That would be sth indeed.. Doubt it tho!

    We do know that somewhere in June MS will allow people to trade in their 920/925/1020 for a discounted price on the 950(XL)

    Microsoft will allow you to trade-in your Lumia 920, 925 or 1020 for $150 off a 950(XL) - MSPoweruser

    Yeah I believe that one is already in effect. I guess the sales associate was just confused... I kept asking if she was sure, and she kept saying "yes" lol. Their system was "down" and they couldn't check on when that promo starts.

    Considering the $150 off trade-in promo ends in June, I'm guessing it's impossible for a better promo to start before then, if the one in question is indeed even real.

    Read the extra tiny print. It's for the AT&T 950 with Ma Bell's service.

    Nice!! Honestly doubted this deal would ever see the light of day. In fact, I wonder if this person heard about it independently or just read the forum. If it starts tomorrow, looks like I'll be driving to my local Microsoft Store at lunch.

    So you get an unlocked 950 XL and an AT&T-locked 950, AND have to start service with AT&T? Where are you reading this tiny print? Thanks!

    That was referring to the $150 trade-in offer, not the BOGO. Read the bottom line in red.

    Might go for it, especially if they still sell the first with education discount.

    Saw it on my Edge homepage as well. Followed the link but got nothing.

    It doesn't seem to be a special link though: Buy Microsoft Lumia 950 XL ? Unlocked - Microsoft Store

    Odd. I get the MSN advertisement but when I click the link it shows the old trade in offer. Even pasted the URL into an InPrivate window in case some cookie stuff was happening. Not showing for me... yet.

    I will surely jump on this when its live in the US later today (not live yet). I will mostly keep the 950XL and sell off the 950. PM me if anyone wants to strike a deal.

    Edit: bought it.

    Ms could have cut the costs of the units but instead is selling both as they just want to get rid of all the inventory lying around. I hope the lumia offers gets a free 950 offer for those that were early adopters. It probably won't happen. But my bro needs a new phone and he doesn't want to go android/ios so he's sort of stuck with the 925 for now. I told him not to buy this year and just hold off for now. His battery is just dying on that puppy. Doesn't hold charge for very long. Granted he usually lets it drain all the way and then charges. Typically new batteries last longer if you maintain a high charge and discharge once in a while.

    lol and it is US/Canada only..even the offers are in a way in a dumb move. Had this been in Europe stock would have been depleted in 1h.

    I would have held back if I knew HP Elite X3 will be so much cheaper. But I needed a phone and while i'm happy with it. It seems that MS even knows that the early adopters overpaid.

    Doesn't anymore. As a matter of fact, you can apply for an additional 10% student discount (594+taxes).

    You're referring to this: "CREDIT CAN ONLY BE APPLIED FOR AT&T LUMIA 950 IF DEVICE IS BEING PAID IN FULL. NO FINANCING ALLOWED"

    The way it reads to me is that if you use the credit towards an AT&T phone you must pay in full. It does not apply to the AT&T Next program.

    I don't think it is saying the credit applies exclusively to the AT&T phones.

    I only want the 950. Anyone would like to pair up? I am a student (so 10% off) and live in Oregon (no sale tax). Please contact me if you're interested. I understand that a newly create account is hardly trustworthy, but I'm sure we can work it out.
    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.
