    I sent a tweet to the MS store regarding the camera grip not being offered if you bought it off contract and they replied a few days later stating that they made the change and now you get the camera grip off contract, as well. I'm happy about that, but I was looking at my miles/rewards from my credit card and I can actually get a $250 gift card for Best Buy and since Nokia is giving me $120 for my 920, I was hoping to pay $329 off contract. I was considering going through Best Buy, but then I noticed the higher off contract price of $749. MS Store lists the phone at $699 off contract, plus the free camera grip. Anyone pre-order from Best Buy off contract? Better yet, anyone have the official off-contract price or does each store have its own price?

    AT&T has it for $659 off contract. Microsoft Store has it for $699 with a free camera grip (even without signing a two year contract, according to my purchase receipt).

    Like vtective said AT&T is selling it at $659. Best Buy is usually a little more expensive for off contract phones. Microsoft Store was the best deal for me as I don't have to pay tax and they are including the free camera grip.

    I went to a Microsoft store over the weekend to see the 1020 in person. I ended up preordering through them since they price matched AT&T. So I get the camera grip AND the cheaper AT&T price. Something to concider.

    Did the MS store have the 1020 on display? I did not know they had them...

    I went to Best Buy and one of the bigger AT&T stores and neither one had a 1020. You would think that Dallas, being AT&T's headquarters, you'd have no problem finding the phone. Anyway, Best Buy was weird ... So I go to the Microsoft area or Windows area and I ask if they have a demo. Microsoft sends me to the mobile phone department, which then a sales person tries to sale me something else. lol What's the point of the Microsoft stores inside Best Buy if MS doesn't even have their own phones on display. Working with the cell phone department was like going to AT&T, asking for a Lumia and the sale reps trying to get you to buy another brand.

    thanks! Another thing I noticed was that my credit card gives me 7 bonus miles / points per dollar at the Microsoft store, which ends up close to 5,000 miles/points.

    Not every MSFT store will price match, though. Depends on the individual store policy/manager.
