Palm Pre’s Irritating $100 Rebate Will Be Instant At Best Buy (And Radio Shack too!)

May 20, 2009

Annoyingly, you won’t be able to get a Palm Pre for the advertised $199 without redeeming a $100 mail-in rebate—something Sprint is depending on you not doing. Solution: get yours at Best Buy.

A PR rep for the company has confirmed that the Pre’s $100 rebate, originally announced as a mail-in affair, will be instantly deducted at the register in Best Buy stores. In other words, Best Buy will take care of the rebate process for you. In other other words, just buy your Pre at the Big Blue, and save yourself the pain.

UPDATE: A Radio Shack rep has confirmed:

RadioShack will also be honoring the mail-in rebate instantly.

Like Best Buy, processing mail-in rebates immediately is standard practice for them. Good to know, though.
