Sprint to provide instant rebates

Sprint plans to temporarily replace mail-in rebates with instant savings in participating Sprint stores and on Sprint.com. The change begins March 27 and will continue for an unspecified time.

Sprint plans to temporarily replace mail-in rebates with instant savings, Sprint spokeswoman Caroline Semerdjian told CNET this evening. The promotion will begin March 27 and continue "for an unspecified time," Semerdjian said.

If the AT&T and T-Mobile merger goes through, Sprint will be pushed into third place, and will probably need to come up with money-saving solutions like these to stay competitive. It'll be interesting to see if these instant rebates are only a temporary solution or a permanent one.
