    When you preorder, you pay $50 and they give a $50 gc that you can use for the phone when it comes out or anything else in the store. You don't get a "free" $50 gc.

    You're paying $50 to get a $50 gc and to reserve a spot for the phone. You don't get $50 credit for the phone unless you use the gc. You're basically buying a $50 gc when you preorder.

    oh ok i thought you would put 50 towards the phone and they would give you 50 in giftcard. so essentially you would be paying 200 instead of 250 if u used the giftcard towards the phone.

    There is no such thing as a free lunch.

    the only thing you are getting for free is the buyback program... since its a new program they are giving it away for the month of february for people to try out... so you are getting a 60 dollar service for free... and when you get a new phone in 2 years it will be worth 129 dollars estimated...

    I'm 25, I don't need mom's credit card. I work in IT Sales during the day, so the likes of Symantec, Cisco, HP, Dell, etc, buy me lunch.
