    Isn't it normal for them to charge $50 more? I believe the same was true when I bought my 928

    Saw that it was $600 at MS Stores and noticed that my local Verizon Store was carrying the black ones for $550, so I ended up grabbing it there. I really wanted the white one, but wanted the phone today versus waiting for it to ship.

    Got my white one ordered. Looks like they're having to wait for inventory before it can ship though.

    I just told the manager that some people at other Microsoft Stores were getting it for free. She said she would make an exception.

    For those getting at MS store, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THEM PRICE MATCH. Or send me the $50, if you don't need it. Free money...
    Please explain how price matching works? Live chat on MS store website said they can't price match a off contract phone?

    how did you preorder a no contract phone? I didn't think they were allowing that?

    For those going to Microsoft Retail locations, the reason they can't price match AND give you the free charger is because both are considered discounts and they can't stack discounts; you have to pick one or the other. I would suggest get the charger, because that's worth $70 which is more than the $50 price match.

    WTF - the Manhattan store completely ignored me when I told them about it, said they didn't know. Now I just called to complain and get them to send me a charger, and they tell me it needed to be purchased on contract, and phones that were purchased outright were not eligible - WTF - im not giving up my unlimited data for a 50$ wireless charger. They should be happy I bought it outright, they got more money from me, really stupid

    Their lying, you can't order off the MS store (online) and price match. Been through like 8 live chats and even asked the answer desk and let them take over my computer, sat here and watched them try stuff for an hour. Thanks, assholes

    I'm headed up to the store now to pick up my pre-order. At the time i pre-ordered, they stated $449. I'll let you know how it goes...
    We got the manager to price match Verizon, 10% student discount and free standing Nokia chargers.
    My friend (Gamby35) also traded in an old fat ps3 for an additional $100 off his.

    We bought them outright, off contract.

    Just for fun I went to see what the 928 price was off contract at the MS store online and it said it is not longer available there. Instead it sent me to the Samsung ATIV page - lol. Anyway, I went ahead and ordered an Icon off contract (+$9.99 shipping + $99 insurance thing) if they can "validate my order for shipment" whatever the heck that means...

    Microsoft should probably work with Simplexity to revamp the online purchase experience.

    I need to deal with that store's manager, discounts on top of discounts.

    I got the phone today for $549 plus a free charger at the MS store. I preordered about a week ago at the store. This was in Los Angeles.

    I purchased at a Microsoft Store today off contract $599. Got the charger free, I purchased the warranty and received $20 off. The salesman didn't know about that discount until he rang the sale up and it popped up. I asked about the differences in people receiving discounts free chargers. He said his store puts everything in the sale and see what the system allows with discounts, freebies.
