    Default Anyone have a Future Shop Hook up??

    Hey I really wanted to get this cell phone from future shop but it's kinda expensive....sooooo I know that future shop employees get 40% off so if anyone works there or has a friend that does I would really appreciate if they can get me any kind of discount and I'll cut them in for hooking me up~

    Thanks in advance

    the staff discount isnt 40% off, its cost +10%, so on certain items the staff price is actually higher than retail price.

    as far as phones go, when u buy them outright, they are the cheapest at future shop. but when u go on a contract for a new activation, the cost works out to be the same no matter where u buy the phone from.

    I bought a TV stand from a friend of a friend that works there and he said the discount was 40% and that's what he got me off some tv stand, but maybe that just for stuff like that? Do you know how much a 300 sony erisson t68i costs after 10% above cost?

    Its cost + 10% for anything in the store... the 40% may have been the actualy percentage you got off of that particular item once your friend did the cost+10.
    Good luck on getting a deal on a phone; FS is very strict with its employees about giving their discounts to ppl other than family; and even more so with phones, as I understand it.
    Jeff can probably fill you in a bit better tho.

    just get a cheap t200 man. its only fido...

    until we get decent gsm coverage in this country, its not worth spending money on a good phone since coverage is still crap.

    If you want a T68i why are you going to buy it from future shop. I can guarantee that you won't get it cheaper than $300.00. They have a list price of $500.00 without contract. The only reason they sell them cheaper is because you sign a contract and then Future Shop is subsidized by Rogers/Fido.

    If you want a brand new one unlocked new contract let me know. I can get it for you for $300. If not you can buy my used one for $200.

    They sell it at fido for 300.00 right now and i'm pretty sure that future shop sells there for 300 if your a new subsriber.

    Yeah you can buy it from Rogers for $350 but you have to sign a 2 year contract.

    You can buy it from Fido for $300.00 with no contract.

    Or you could buy it from OmegaCell for $300.00 no contract and SIM and browser unlocked.

    If you check the calgary.forsale newsgroup, someone was selling it unlocked for $275 out of Toronto, I think. Someone was also sell it there for $300 unlocked as well, but I'm not sure if that's locally or not. Both brand new, I think.

    Posted last week, so they should still be around.
