    I tried to see if my AT&T store would match the online price. No go.

    Make sure it's an actual ATT STORE, not just an authorized retailer. The stores should match the price.

    @kev - the offer says with a purchase of the 925,1020 or 1520... That's how I explained it and got it.

    It was an actual AT&T store. Not just an authorized reseller.

    The rep mentioned that they don't have any codes that allow them to sell it $100 cheaper. And that the website specifically mentions that the deal is online only.

    He said that people have been asking about price match the AT&T website all day for several phones.

    Hmm.. that's odd. Have you checked other ATT stores? I say it's odd because I was mentioning the deal on the web, and the rep I talked to said, "well we match any of our own prices on the web." So he volunteered the info; I didn't ask the question. Any of the deals I mentioned we looked up on the web and he made the adjustment right there.

    I should try looking around. It probably mainly depends on the store manager.

    Went to my local at&t corporate store and they were doing the usual half @$$ed promotion of Windows Phone. Well the phones were close to the entrance so that is a welcome change but the staff that was just sitting around had no idea about the 2520 bundle deal. They mentioned some $50 BS smartpone rebate and that was it. They said they probably won't even get the 2520 in their store. They claim only certain stores are getting it. They didn't mention the $100 off smartphones. They didn't mention the $100 trade in offer. Man it was just such a weak sales job. How can these people know so little about company promotions? If I worked at that place I would cruise sites like this and I assume internal company communications and pitch all this stuff to everyone that walked in the door. I don't get it.

    Well I had him pull the page up in the store, so he could match it directly to the ATT site. The details are out there!! The 50% thing is on the main page, and the 2520 deal is right here at the bottom: Nokia Lumia 2520-Silk Black tablet from AT&T

    You do have to do a liiittle bit of work ;)... or at least force them to do their job.

    I hear you. I just wanted other users to know they weren't going crazy. The apathy and ignorance is widespread. I am very familiar with sitting on top of retail help and walking them through stuff they should already know how to do. Neither the 2520 deal nor the $100 trade in deal is anything exotic. I mean the $100 deal tells you to go into an at&t store to hand in your phone. So really that's $300 worth of deals they should offer when you walk through the door. Stacking it with the web price might be tricky but the first two items mentioned show go smoothly.

    But really all these guys do is sell phones for a living. How can they not even know their own corporate promotions?

    Yes.. admittedly, I was lucky as hell when the 2 people I talked to (one from each store) were both the ONLY WP enthusiasts in the stores lol.

    The rep at my store specifically said he was aware of the web price. He just said he couldn't match it. Boo!

    I'd love to get a match... and then trade in my Titan for $100. Boom! Walk out with a 1520 for a price of Free Fifty-Free.

    I went to the ATT store in a mall near me. The store manager himself owned a lumia 1020. I asked him to match the web offer of $99. He said he couldn't but would take a trade in. So i gave him an old motorola droid (verizon's) that my brother had. I then asked him to bundle the lumia 2520 and I gave him an old blackberry curve that I had. This gave me a $100 off the $199 bundle price. . So the price of the phone and the tablet was $227 with tax. He threw in the nokia flip case and a $20 app voucher that i can use on both the phone and the tablet. $20 for the phone and $20 for the tablet. I'm very happy with the purchase! I was also able to sell my old lumia 920 (locked) and the wirleess charger for $275 on craigslist.

    Wow nice work Shaz! So you basically made out for -$50 just in purchases, and then got a free case and an extra $20 in vouchers... very nice!

    Don't forget to send in for your keyboard!

    Adding the tablet is only $10 a month.
    Alright, you win. While this deal doesn't make a lot of sense for me it works for my parents. Got two 1520s for $99 each and a 2520 for $199. They had no smartphones to trade in and even if they did the ordering process was so painful that there is no way they would have successfully navigated the $99 trade in deal. Man it's 2013 and the at&t business website is atrocious.

    Anyway thanks to everyone who brought these deals to our attention.
