    i'm looking around and the best i can come up with is $250 on amazon and the same on a few other sites...

    has anyone seen anything better than that or know if there's gonna be a price-drop any time soon?

    I know for sure this site is legit, I have a couple co-workers that got the note 2 for $175, after using an internet coupon they found for $25.....even at that, it was still $199 upgrade price. They ordered the phone on a Monday and had them by Thursday.

    They have Verizon, but I think all carriers are offered.

    good luck

    How much are you hoping it drops down too?
    Everything I've seen is between $250-280.

    Just take that print out into Best Buy, talk to a manager, and see if he'll price match on an upgrade. Worst he/she can say is No, and you'll just go on waiting for the next deal that they will price match.

    In fact, Radio Shack has the same price.

    This is where I got mine. Ordered on 12/20 and would have received it the following day but the winter storm delayed arrival, got it Christmas Eve. Upgraded for $220 with free overnight shipping

    Legit deal? Why wait until this weekend? Just print out the one for "new" contracts, go to best buy and let them know that you'd really like to get the Note 2 for an upgrade, but were wondering if they could price match. Don't mention anything about whether it's new or upgrade price. Let them decipher if they can give it to you, even if you are on an upgrade.

    Yes that is true; but sometimes best buy will work with you. Ask them to price match and maybe they will!:D Good Luck

    i was waiting for the weekend because i was going to the mall anyway, thought i'd kill 2 birds with one stone...

    but i decided to stop at the mall today on my way home and asked bestbuy mobile to price match the upgrade for $170 (that's the add-a-line price from amazon, but i didn't tell them that), the clerk verified the price and said "it's actually $140!" so i said "even better, ring me up!". i'm happy :D

    the only down side was that it wasn't in stock so i'll have to wait a few days for them to ship it to me... i can live with that though.

    i'm on a family plan that's partially upgraded, so no.

    There you go! Congrats! This is why I say that it never hurts to ask and all of my experiences as Best Buy have been amazing with price matching, at least for cell phones (and it was especially hassle free during the holidays).
