Why is the Amazon version more expensive?!?
Good question. The Standard version is on sale for $199, a 20% discount off the normal price, while the Amazon version is on sale for $220 with only an 8% discount. Seems that Amazon just wants to compete with other sellers who are or will be offering this phone for $199. I think Costco will be offering this phone for $190 on 11/16/2018.
Come on, let's see $150 on Black Friday!
O wait, activation promo the Best Buy has it for $185 ans comes with a $25 Cricket card. I'd only we could buy off eBay and through that buy from BB...
Ah, the quirks of the price-match algorithm. No identical item from other sellers for the Amazon Exclusive version, so no price-match reduction.
