Bell Drops Price of Palm Pre to $99.95

According to Mobile Syrup, Bell has dropped the price of the Palm Pre to $99.95. This subsidized price still requires a 3-year commitment. The move likely comes in response to Bell not carrying the 8GB iPhone 3G, priced at $99.


Those looking for a similar price in the US should check out Amazon, with Sprint still holding at $149.99. With the Palm Pixi coming out on November 15th priced at $99, price is helping to differentiate the products. The more expensive Palm Pre includes WiFi and features a faster processor.

Bell Drops Palm Pre Price to $149.95

Bell in Canada has dropped the price of the Palm Pre by $50, bringing the price to $149.95 CAD. This requires a 3-year commitment and the new price does not require a mail-in rebate of any sort.


In the US, Sprint is selling the Palm Pre at $149.99, although we’ve seen some retailers smashing the sub-$100 level.

Sprint Offering $50 Cash Back?

Sprint has just announced that customers who purchased the Palm Pre within the last 30 days “may be able to receive a price match adjustment.” Comments at Sprint’s corporate blog indicate that retailers and even Sprint telesales are not aware of this cash back offer. We’re guessing this was put into place to avoid new customers from returning their Palm Pre phones and then purchasing them over again at today’s new price of $149.99. It could be to reduce any brushback from customers who paid $199.99 within the past 30 days only to see the price of the phone dropped by $50. We’re betting on the former, as most understand that prices on phones do change.


In any event, print out a copy of this blog post and head to the retailer where you purchased your PreĀ  – this can be Sprint retail stores, Best Buy or Radio Shack. Just be aware that even the blog post says “may be able to receive a price adjustment”. That doesn’t sound very convincing, but we’re hoping for the best.
