RadioShack filed for bankruptcy recently, in case you were out of the loop. Because of that move, Sprint has decided to take advantage of the situation and swoop in, making them an offer they can’t refuse, which happens to be taking over a third of the retail space inside 1,750 RadioShack stores and turning them into mini-Sprints. Actually, the entire agreement is between General Wireless Inc., a subsidiary of RadioShack’s largest shareholder, and Sprint, granting them an opportunity to expand their branded store distribution.
As of today, Sprint has 1,100 company-owned stores, so if this transaction is approved by a Delaware bankruptcy court, they would more than double their footprint. (more…)
Today, RadioShack announced availability for the Samsung Galaxy S4 beginning this Saturday, April 27 in retail stores. The device will be available on both AT&T and Sprint, as the Verizon version’s availability has not yet been announced. As an added bonus, they will also have a few of the Galaxy S4’s accessories on hand, giving customers a $10 off coupon when they make a purchase of $30 or more.
If you are not the biggest fan of going into a certified retailer of a carrier and have a Shack close to home, it’s good to know you have options for where you can pick up your new phone.
While we still expect to see the HTC One arrive sometime before the end of this month, that apparently can’t stop RadioShack from the start of their hypebeasting. While in a store, a customer snapped a picture of some One signage, showing off its killer features like HTC Zoe, BoomSound and BlinkFeed. (more…)
Thanks to coupon code “RARMNJ1320” you can grab a 32GB Nexus 7 from RadioShack for $229.99 along with free shipping. That’s a total savings of 26.99. Keep in mind that Google is currently selling the 32GB version for $249 and will then charge you $14 to have it shipped. So if you compare to what Google is doing, you are actually saving even more money.
Once you have added the device to your cart and you head to checkout, you’ll have to type in the entire coupon code, as pasting it doesn’t seem to work. Once applied, you should see the discount immediately (pictured above).
If you live near a RadioShack and do not want to wait for it ship, in-store pick-up is free as well.
On Sunday, RadioShack is kicking off a pretty big BOGO (buy one get one) deal for a number of phones. For example, if you buy a Verizon Galaxy S3, they’ll toss in a Samsung Stratosphere 2 for free. Or if you buy an original DROID RAZR, they’ll give you another DROID RAZR at no charge.
Here is the full list:
- Verizon: Buy a Verizon Samsung Galaxy SIII and get a Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II 4G LTE for free
- Verizon: Buy a Verizon Motorola DROID RAZR 4G LTE and get a second DROID RAZR 4G LTE for free
- AT&T: Buy one AT&T Samsung Galaxy SIII and get a Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket for free
- Sprint: Buy a Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII and get a Samsung Galaxy SII for free
Also, when you purchase a Galaxy S3 (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint), they’ll hand you a $50 Google Play gift card. And every time you spend $50 in store at a RadioShack, they’ll give you $10 back.
Plenty of deals to be had.
Through the holiday season, RadioShack is teaming up with carriers to offer the Galaxy S3 for $99 on a new two-year agreement, but are also throwing in a $50 Google Play credit. If you have looked to pick up the device through either Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, then you’re in luck. On top of that deal, RadioShack has a special holiday promotion going on where you earn $10 back on every $50 you spend in-store. So, if you’re picking up an S3, that’s definitely the place to go.
Now the question for some may be, do you pick up the DROID DNA or Galaxy S3?
RadioShack is currently running a coupon code (“RMN20”) that will save you $20 if you buy certain products that are $125 or more. The Nexus 7 32GB fits that description and this deal, so if you want the newest version of Google’s tablet for $230, head on over. We aren’t sure how long the coupon code will be live for, so do it soon. Also, feel free to try it with other products.
Buy. [Coupon Code: RMN20]
In a little over two weeks, Black Friday will be upon us. Over the last couple of years, we have seen this day become flooded with deals on the latest and greatest in Android products, something that likely won’t change this year. In fact, RadioShack’s ad has already been posted for the world to see, and as expected, includes a number of Android smartphones at rock bottom prices. (more…)
