A few weeks ago I pre-ordered my new iPhone 3GS for delivery this Friday. I was under the impression that I was going to pay $499. I was an early adopter of the 3G version(launch day) and was only being offered a $200 cut form the $699 retail, no contract price.
Today I log in to AT&T and run through the upgrade process and it’s offering me the 3GS for $299 with 2 year contact. A story broke yesterday on Gizmodo that AT&T was July/Sept/Aug 2008 upgraders a better deal, but the prices won;’t show up till today.
Bottom line is that AT&T just saved me $200 tomorrow. My $349 sale of my 3G on Craiglists on Monday just got a little sweeter!
