Register in February and take advantage for the whole of 2014

Best Buy is offering a promotion right now that'll be of interest to anyone upgrading their phone at some point in 2014. Simply register the number that you'll be upgrading – porting the number to another carrier also counts – and you can get yourself a $50 Best Buy gift card that can be used towards the cost of your new phone on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint. 

Simply register online between February 2 and February 15 to take advantage of the promotion. Then, so long as you upgrade or move your number to a new carrier some time before December 31 you'll get your $50 gift card that can be used towards the cost of buying and activating your new phone. New lines and new numbers aren't eligible to take advantage of this promotion, but it's perfect to help trade up at some point in 2014.

Best Buy offering $50 gift card with upgrades and number ports


The last time they did it, I do not remember them texting all that often. Once a quarter maybe.

Helped take $50 off my Note 3 (sorta)

I was just thinking the exact same thing, like "hmm so they want to pay me $50 to bug the hell out of me indefinitely"... Pass.

I did this last year and bought my phone from them. I've never received a single text from them.

Ya know, if I didn't live in the US, I'd be pissed that most of these deals aren't available to the rest of the world.

I think many other countries get better deals on for Canada with what seems that 3yr contracts are the norm.

This is very true, brother.

Damn...........My wife is upgrading her samsung stratosphere on Saturday (Feb 1st) to get a free S4 (verizon) before the sale ends.

If she is coming from a Stratosphere, you cannot be mad if she is getting an upgrade...

Stratosphere wasn't bad. The one dev that it had was pretty good too, though my wife wouldn't let me mess with her phone too much.


This post approved by the NSA.... at least I hope so.

Best Buy should match CostCo. Also the $50 off comes as a gift card not as a deduction off the phone. You can just choose to use is that way if you choose or for cases whatever. As long as you do the activation @ BestBuy they will give you $50 on a gift card.

Upgraded to my gs3 using this program two years ago, wife upgraded her phone last year using program, so have no gripes about the program at all. Will sign up and use it again this year.

In most cases you're better off just doing a price match with Amazon, Radio Shack, etc. Right now Amazon's upgrade price for a white Note 3 on Sprint is 279.99. Best Buy's price is $349.99, netting you a $70 savings by price matching vs. the $50 gift card deal. Unfortunately you cannot combine the gift card with a price match. I've tried.


I just upgraded my wife's phone wed for a moto x and they matched the price of vzw
