Here’s the excuse you’ve been waiting for to upgrade your phone guilt-free now, or later this year.
Beginning Feb. 2 and ending Feb. 15, you can simply sign up for a $50 Best Buy gift card and activate your mobile phone at Best Buy anytime during 2014.
Since Best Buy offers your choice of phone, plan and carrier – coupled with impartial advice from Blue Shirts – this is a no-brainer.
The plan is this simple:
1. Between Feb. 2-15, 2014, just register your mobile phone number, email address and up to four more phone numbers on a family plan in-store or on Bestbuy.com/giftcardreserve.
2. Then, any time before 11:59 p.m. CST on Dec. 31, 2014, purchase and activate a new mobile phone for your registered phone number and a two-year agreement on AT&T, Sprint or Verizon Wireless at any Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile store or on BestBuy.com.
3. Activate your $50 Best Buy gift card.
Remember, once you’ve signed up, the offer runs until the end of 2014. If a phone isn’t activated before the end of the year, the offer simply goes away.
Upgrades and port-in activations qualify, but new lines and new phone numbers are not eligible (mobile broadband excluded). For details, click here.
