Sprint has confirmed to Phone Scoop via email that it will be waiving mail-in rebates for an unspecified length of time. Spokesperson Stephanie Vinge wrote, "Sprint has temporarily replaced mail-in rebates with instant savings in participating Sprint stores and on Sprint.com. The change [will begin on] March 27 and will continue for an unspecified time." By waiving the rebates, customers will pay less out-of-pocket at the cash register for new devices.
Other then the fact that there is still money to be made? They still make a profit on the sales of the phone, not to mention they will make some upfront money not having to do the rebates themselves. The truth of the matter is very few people actual... (continues)
Back when iPCS was around we were able to offer this exact same thing to our customers, and it helped, and since the buyout of iPCS, we had the ability to take away the MIR on data plans only. This helped out soooo much when competing against the nati... (continues)
I have been watching these posts not only on this topic but about Sprint in general and I have to say that all the posts are from customers past and present who for the most part have not gotten what they demanded or they don't pay their bills. Yes there are customers with legitimate issues but mostly from customers who feel they "deserve" what they demand. As a Sprint employee/customer myself and proud to be one all I can say for those of you out there that don't like Sprint for whatever reason, stop living in the past get over it and move on. It's just a though but it's my thought........thank you so much.
No actually our C-Sat has improved and I am very good with customers and treat each one equally but do not agree with the negativity posted about us. I was speaking about specific customers who have delusions of grandeur and sense of privalege not ear... (continues)
SPRINT WILL BE NUMBER ONE NO ONE CAN STOP THIS WAAHAHAHHAHA
😁 😁 😁 any no brainer would think this is a bad thing right? when you order by a phone or a sprint store. you always ask them to wave mail in rebates.. now you got what you we're asking for. everything sprint does is for customer satisfaction lol 😁 🤣 😳
I love Sprint are there any negatives? , comment..

did i miss anything?
are there any big negative points for the price / quality level you get from sprint?
i know its not perfect but its my choice and opinion
Yes. I do have a negative. While Sprint has made an enormous turn back to being the viable network they were noted for, old management soured their reputation by implementing every bad decision possible.
To clarify and remove this albatross around... (continues)
Actually, thats nto what this means at all. If you pay attention every nine months or so Sprint does this. Especially when they are about to get new phones. This is a good way for them to clear out some merchandise and find out how much people are ... (continues)
Maybe it's just me but this seems like a false title. In the title it is implied that mail in rebates will be gone forever, but in the article it is stated very clearly that they are gone "for an unspecified amount of time." This could confuse some readers. It may be a good idea to change the title to reflect that there is at least a possibility that they may return.
It is not for an "unspecified" amount of thime. The MIR will be instant 3/27/11-4/16/11. It's a promotion we are running and promotions are for specific amounts of time, and if it were for "unspecified" amount of time we would promoting it as such. Pl... (continues)
Now over all the reasons to come buy from me, Sprint adds one more. No more (well for a few weeks) customers buying RS and BB phones and expecting help from us because "The Shack" didn't know a damn thing about there phone. I am gonna sell the SH*T out of phones for 2 weeks and instead of doubling my pay over RS and BB im going to quadruple it. Have fun getting paid $9/hr to give away phones RS right next to me!
