My husband's cell phones battery had gotten to where it wouldn't hold a charge. Also, he hadn't gotten his number changed from a Florida number to a Colorado number yet either. I called to see if he could get a new phone either free or discounted. His 2 year contract was up this January so we waited until this week to check into it. The Cingular Retail Store in the Citadel Mall was a great experience. My husband didn't need any "accessories" so they allowed him to get the $79.00 phone for $29.00 and no accessories, i.e. a car charger, holder etc. as he already had those. Also, they make you pay up front and then you send in the paper work for the discount. My husband said he didn't like the idea of paying taxes on the full $79.00 as Colorado Springs taxes are 7.4%. Then the manager came over and asked if he were an AARP member and I said we are an AAA member. He said that would work too. So, on top of the $50.00 rebate he applied a 7% discount for each MONTH for 2 years. Now, that was a great deal. If anyone is planning on purchasing a cell phone, be sure to ask about the AAA or AARP discount(s).
