Trade In Your Old Handheld for $100 Off Treo
Handspring has announced deals for both current handheld owners and Cingular wireless users.
The company has created the Trade up to Treo program, which lets owners of any existing handheld get a rebate for $100 off the purchase of either the Treo 180 or 180g. There are a few restrictions, the main one being the Treo must be bought at Handspring.com. This offer is good now through June 2.
Visor owners can get an instant rebate by entering their Visor's serial number. Other handheld owners need to fill out a mail-in rebate form.
This offer is good for any PalmOS, WinCE, Pocket PC, or Symbian handheld, or an Apple Newton, RIM Blackberry, Casio, Psion, or Sharp handheld.
Only one rebate is allowed per customer and it isn't necessary to send the old handheld to Handspring.
Cingular Wireless Users
When current Cingular Wireless GSM customers sign a new 12 month service contract, they qualify for $200 off the cost if they buy a Treo 180 or 180g, which will be $400. This is thanks to a special offer from Handspring. This is the same deal offered with activation of a new service plan. People who take advantage of this are also still eligible for the Trade up to Treo program.
The Treo line of GSM smartphones was introduced in the last few months. The Treo 180 has a built-in keyboard while the 180g uses Graffiti for text input. Both of these have monochrome screens and normally cost $400 with a service contract.
